Actually free movement is for work, and people coming to the UK can't get most benefits right away anyway. There are some, like access to some healthcare, but for example they can't just claim job seekers allowance or housing benefit from day one and without a job.

Physical sciences and maths are both above 40% in the US.
I certainly hope we will be okay without oil in the long run... And with modern equipment logging is fairly safe now. That's not the point though.
You can't force people to do things. Women already want to be scientists.
Right... I make an argument based on facts, that's trolling. There needs to be a -1 MRA block meta-mod.
Go on, explain why my post is a troll. I dare you to try.
So your argument is "keep the women down so I don't have to compete"? Seriously?
What exactly is your argument? That because the law on child custody is broken women should be punished in other areas to make up for it?
Seriously, what is the point you are trying to make, or is it just a general complaint that adds nothing to the debate?
Yeah, it's surprising how people want to make things better, instead of just worse for everyone.
This MRA myth that it's about numbers needs to die. It's about access to the professions people want access to, regardless of gender. Thus the underlying assumption is that women aren't interested in science, which is demonstrably false.
How about no one has to mine coal or collect bottles to survive? I bet that blows your mind, huh?
+4 insightful, with no evidence or even logic presented. The fact is that in many counties 50%of science students at university level are female. The numbers are equalising in work too, although obviously it takes longer. So on what basis do you claim women are less interested? Other countries don't force them into science.
Sorry, I submitted a better story well in advance but it seems to have been rejected. I'll try harder next time.
Nobody gives a fuck? Every time there is any story about women in science the MRAs start complaining that nursing and teaching are female dominated and why is no one doing anything about that?! Then I point out that actually there are programmes trying to get more men into those professions, but they still make the same argument next time.
It's actually a huge issue in both professions. Children in particular need male role models at an early age in school.
No sane tax system would consume all additional profit. In fact if Amazon's profits went up by 10% they would pay about 2% more tax, if that.
You know in sports when someone finds some way to gain an advantage that is technically within the rules but clearly against the spirit of the game? People get annoyed because they expect fair play.
What Amazon and many others are doing is legal, but clearly subverts the intention of the law. We need to run tax more like a D&D session, where any rule lawyering can simply be overruled by the DM and if you piss them off too much a dragon steps on you.
The second referendum in Ireland was a triumph of democracy. The people rejected the first offering, so the politicians listened to their concerns and improved it. The second version was much more to their liking.
No one forced the Irish to vote yes the second time, did they? What's wrong with listening to the population? If something is rejected the first time is it forever trained and impossible to fix?
Free movement works well enough in the states. The difference between some states is not far off the differences in the EU. It just needs to be worked out, not abandoned.
All those people who retired to British ghettos in the south of Spain won't be able to stay. Their pensions were frozen when they left the UK, and they would suddenly need to pay for medical care. That is assuming they can get a visa. Spain doesn't just let anyone in, especially if they have no intention of working and are likely to need expensive support services. It's not like they contribute much tax.
