Sarah Wollaston, British general practitioner and politician

agrees Soda taxes
The childhood obesity strategy needs to tackle the problem from every angle, but to leave out a sugary drinks tax would miss an important opportunity to tackle the single biggest contributor of the sugar in teenagers’ diets. There is compelling evidence it would work and do so quickly.

George Carey, Former Archbishop of Canterbury

agrees Euthanasia
When suffering is so great, when patients know they are at the end of life, make repeated pleas to die, it seems a denial of loving compassion which is the hallmark of Christianity to refuse to allow them to fulfil their own clearly stated request – after a proper process of safeguards. That is what I would want.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Social Rights Activist Who Fought Apartheid

agrees Euthanasia
I do not want artificial feeding or to be on an artificial breathing machine – I don't want people to do their damnedest to keep me alive.

Sania Nishtar, Pakistani cardiologist

Nick Bostrom,

Before the prospect of an intelligence explosion, we humans are like small children playing with a bomb [...] We have little idea when the detonation will occur, though if we hold the device to our ear we can hear a faint ticking sound

David Bellamy, English author, broadcaster, environmental campaigner and botanist

For the last 16 years, temperatures have been going down and the carbon dioxide has been going up and the crops have got greener and grow quicker. We’ve done plenty to smash up the planet, but there’s been no global warming caused by man

Lord David Owen, British Foreign Secretary 1977-1979, Leader of SDP 1983-1987

agrees Brexit
“To remain in the EU is in my judgement a more dangerous option for British security in its deepest sense – economic, political, military and social – than is being admitted or even discussed in the wake of Cameron’s failed negotiations.”

David Owen, Chief European Economist, Jefferies

disagrees Brexit
Economically and politically the UK would certainly be viewed as significantly weaker, especially if there were further calls to break-up the Union, with the SNP demanding another referendum on Scotland's future
