    • 5 Minutes: The dome collapses to a height of 500 metres (1,600 ft) as it advances by 50 kilometres (31 mi); additionally, wave valleys form.[37]

    But people doing a 50-hour week even on min wage are not the biggest benefit claimants. And I'm not saying they should work harder. Though perhaps they need to work smarter or get a different job better suited to their abilities in order to be more productive. I'm talking about the shirkers who intentionally...

    How do you define what is "constructive and creative"?
    I would argue the only way to do this is to ask other people to pay you with their own money if they think you are offering this. = capitalism.

    I think that's right.

    One way you could make this "dream" come true is to identify the bone-idle shirkers from among Britain's population, and ship them out to third world countries with low land and accommodation costs. In some ways that would be a good idea. Make benefits conditional...
