Department of Slaughtering our Sacred Cows: David Attenborough may be a national treasure but he has some pretty strange political views, as this article by The Beast makes clear. He’s allowed to have those views; it’s still a free country in that respect (although not for much longer, we fear). However: Should other people be prevented from criticising him, simply because he is the great British wildlife broadcaster?

    It has been shown that where women are educated, have adequate medical support and, importantly control of their fertility, they tend not to have as many children.
    Surely, a much more effective strategy for Foreign Aid would be health education programs and supplies of Contraceptives – both of which are anathema to the Christian Right who seem to make the decisions about Aid Programmes
