The policy I advocate is to abolish all child benefits and pay every woman £500 every 6 months if she isn't pregnant. No coercion, no persuasion, just a simple choice. You can vary the amount in line with the local economy and apply it everywhere.

But frankly, if the rest of the world wants to go to hell in a handbasket, why should I care? I live here, and it would be a lot nicer with fewer people.
No big deal. I live at 110 m AMSL and enjoy sea fishing. Not having to drive an hour to the coast would be very welcome. A small boat will also take me to the airfield which is at 120m AMSL.

Might have to swap the plane for a helicopter, but that's just another tax-deductible adventure.
I reserve the right to defend my property, and they will have to cross several other people's land to get to mine. Why do you think royal castles were always built on a hill or a bend in a river?
