What’s your most controversial opinion? **Read OP** **Mod Note in Post #3372**

    Here’s mine: The expansion of the EU should’ve stopped in 1995 with Austria, Sweden and Finland.

    The 2004 expansion with 10 new countries, (Czechia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Estonia, Malta, Poland) the 2007 addition of Romania and Bulgaria and 2013 addition of Croatia should never have happened.

    We should’ve drawn up the ladder after. I NEVER want to see Ukraine as a member.

    I am pro EU. I just don’t want the aforementioned 14 countries in the union.

    Not being in Schengen isn’t that bad, at least we can screen potential baddies before they enter Ireland.

    this thread is for controversial opinions. It’s absolutely a guarantee that you’re going to see something here you wholly disagree with. That is fine. 

    You can discuss opinions with the poster if they wish but do not harass them or constantly attempt to change their opinion or POV or go along with yours. 

    Secondly & as important to keep in mind at all times a controversial opinion does not mean a free pass to be a racist, homophobe etc. think twice about what you’re about to post if you’re at all unsure & if you want to play it extra safe ask one of the moderators, we’re happy to advise.

    Mod edit 2;

    Posters on this thread were requested not to derail it by discussion of the Irish women's soccer team.

    I see that these requests have been completely ignored.

    Therefore posters who do continue to post about the Irish women's soccer team on this thread will face an immediate threadban. 

    You have been warned.

    I’d concur regarding the OP’s EU expansion opinion but I’m not sure it’s one which is too controversial. It will become less so.

    People with a very low iq need to contained within the confines of spike island. There could be a biannual general intelligence test, fail it, catch ya later. Oh and did I forget to mention that they’d be sharing it with but segregated from, anyone with more than 3 convictions. People who educate themselves and pass the iq test, get to leave after a year. Those convicted folk don’t get that opportunity.

    is the elderly population not getting adequate care in itself not an element of population control. if people died younger the need to provide "the pension"and health care would be less demanding. I'm not saying I agree with this but people are definitely retiring too young.

    took 5 seconds to find this , maybe if you had a high iq yourself , you could’ve looked it up before posting.
