      This is untrue. If truth were not absolute I would say it is very untrue indeed. The reason I believe it is untrue is because people have been saying it since at least written records began and no doubt before.

      I once read a letter written by a father to his son who was away studying in which he exhorts his son not to drink too much beer and fall down drunk and to show respect to his teachers. How long ago was this written? It was an Ancient Egyptian papyrus. It is unlikely the father would have written the letter if he had not himself drunk too much beer and fallen down drunk and been a bit lippy to his teachers.

      Anyway the answer to teenage pregnancies is obvious - we need to encourage young men to have sex with each other.

          OHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GOODNESS lol i hope that wasnt intended in the way it sounds it was :|

          tho there is a point - take the womb out of the equation there may well be no pregnancy but there will be neither increase nor decrease in the risk of STDs. (well at least no baby would be affected by it)

            The presence of the icon was a very strong pointer that my suggestion was not a serious one. I could say a lot, but before I say anything I think I need to know whether I am to take it that it is implicit in your comment that males of any age should not have sex with each other (a) because of the risk of HIV/AIDS or (b) anyway.

              And what do we encourage the young girls to do ?
              Munch carpets ?

                          No, but you made the "carpet munch" comment, Lawcruncher attempted to divert the discussion into a rhetorical cul-de-sac, but you then tried to revive the topic. Not necessarily evidence of obsesssion, but you did seem uncommonly keen to talk/think about it.

                              It wasn't encouragement. It was a joke, as has already been explained. You chose not to see it as such.

                                  I'm still amazed at the number of people returning from "red countries" seemingly paying £2,300 to stay locked in a hotel room for 11 nights - why would they?

                                  A) i wouldn't be in a red country to begin with - they dont change to red overnight, so always time to get out.

                                  B) As above, why would you stay somewhere without being able to get a vaccination

                                  BTW, when a company like British Gas takes on an account, they're allowed to recoup the cost of migration (a few hundred pounds per customer) in their tariffs over the next months (from every customer, not just the one's being migrated), so it's very lucrative for them and adds more cost to the consumer...

                                  I am one of the customers whose utility company has gone bust, so Im pretty sure my bills will be going up. I can afford this, but many people look on course for a difficult winter with a reduction of UC, increase in utility bills & food prices probably going up because of shortages & Brexit....

                                  The price of the raw materials have shot up and the consumer picks up the increased price.
                                  The question is, does the government intervene to subsidise the consumer or does it let the market operate freely.
                                  And if it does intervene, does it do it by running the utility companies or injecting...

                                  Also Government should waive the 5% VAT and let the energy gas company keep it.

                                  Much safer to get double vaccinated and stay at home. Save money to pay the gas bills.

                                  BBC reported the Health Minister saying .- 99% of covid deaths in the first 6 months of 2021 were persons who were not vaccinated.
