    Poverty in the UK

    Nope, it will always grow. You earn 30k and have 100k equity and I earn 29k and have 90k equity, the gap between us increases every year. The only measurement is relative poverty, are the poorer getting better off than they were.

    The gap between rich and poor will always grow, that's the way it is. Comparing some peoples incomes with other peoples outgoings doesn't really give a fair reflection of society. The figures above are too low though.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    Its the motivation I don't understand, what do they get out of it? Is it just a thrill through shocking someone or is it a way of trying to attract someone or perhaps a power thing? Its strange.

    I've always wondered what motivates flashers

    Its not patronising its reality. I didn't say I would refer to them as blokes behind their backs, I said they are blokes. I would refer to them, to their face or behind their backs, as female, its the polite thing to do. When it comes down to the nitty gritty though, they are blokes. I can see you agree with this so there really is not argument between us.

    You didn't go on a date with your wife, you went for a day out with your wife.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    I'm sorry but I dont follow. I've said, to paraphrase, they deserve respect but are not women. You implied I was being patronising, how so?

    Ok, so you think I was being patronising. I think the reason you entered in to this debate was down to the disrespectful language used towards trans people. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I had no intention of being patronising but rather to say that I want them to be treat properly and fairly and respect their decision to become trans. However, that is in the context that they are not actually the same as women. Where is your problem with that?

    Not sure if you're joking or implying I'm being patronising

    This is just ridiculous. If a bloke decides he wants identify as a woman, good luck to him, I would have the good manners to refer to him as "she" and act as if she was a woman. Its just common decency. However, when it comes down to it, she is a man. She cannot go to a womans prison, toilet or changing room etc nor compete against men where a mans physiology makes it unfair. Give trans people loads of respect, they deserve it, but lets not indulge in make believe.

    Resilience (The ability to bounce back)

    Have a goal/project , doesnt matter what it is, overhaul the garden, paint the hall, whatever, and take little steps every day towards it. Great for mental health and for getting things done.
