Well, critical thinking, analysing information, producing hypotheses and being able to change opinions in light of new evidence are what raises us above the beasts and is a great thing.

I for one always try to get more than one source of evidence and try and avoid sources that are a) biased and b) unacceptable to some. So, for example, I always avoid quoting articles from The Guardian. I would also put The Independent, The Express, The Mail and Order Order in that bucket. There are usually elements of truth but the spin and cherry picking is clear. I would however quote sources from academia (London School of Economics as an example) or organisations that drive public policy (ONS and OECD for example)

Re: Brexit discussion

It was annouced in the paper - Labour MP Angela Rayner celebrates being a grandmother at 37

Ok so **** happens and you can't help what sometimes happens with your kids but the article goes on.



Mrs Rayner has previously spoken about how being pregnant with her first child at the age of 16 "saved" her, at a time when she left school in Stockport, Greater Manchester, with no qualifications.

Earlier this year, the former care worker and trade union officer told an event at the Labour Party conference: "Even though getting pregnant at 16 and having no qualifications is not the best start for anybody, you've got to understand where my life was.

"It actually saved me from where I could have been because I had a little person to look after.


"I wanted to prove that I could be a good mum and somebody was finally going to love me as much as I deserved to be loved and that's what pregnancy was for me."

Mrs Rayner was elected to Parliament in 2015 and was promoted to Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet within little more than a year, following a string of resignations from Labour's frontbench in June 2016.

She is frequently touted as a possible future Labour leader.



Says it all really about Labour. Had a kid at 16, No qualifications and is tipped to be a future leader.

God help us all

No qualifications doesn't mean she's not up to the job. I didn't know there were any particular educational requirements for leaders of political parties. John Major did a correspondence course in banking - and he didn't do that badly for himself.


Cheers

Young girls can get pregnant from all walks of life and are not consigned to one certain group of people.

Because this is all about Labour party. No wonder the likes of DA can't get the numbers right, this is the reasons why the country went broke under the last labour and this is the reason why they spend spend spend and don't know how to invest.

I do not vote labour, and never will, but I dont really see the relevance of "had a kid at 16".

She seems a better choice than what they have atm.

Sounds like someone whose at least had a difference experience than the usual Eton > Oxbridge (PPE naturally) > Special Advisor > MP route.
