Do you? If you ever grow up you might realise you aren't anything special.
There was no 'benefits culture' before the 1980s. Do you really believe millions of people suddenly lost the will to work just because they saw Mrs Thatcher on TV? Perhaps mass unemployment has something to do with economic conditions in the real world?
If you've worked all your life, you've presumably been paid all you were owed.
No. US government secrets are being made public by Wikileaks. They have been indiscriminately released to over 3 million people by the US. What are the odds that foreign governments haven't had much of this information for months or years? Should one small cog be able to grab so much without someone asking why until after it is made public? If you *can* pinch a rat's tail then more fool it for letting you.
What would be the "enormous commercial benefits" for businesses in having pan-European patents which aren't in accordance with European law? Presumably this would make them either straightforwardly worthless or the subject of (extra) years of ball-wrenchingly expensive litigation.
