My Channel 5 News debate with Population Matters


Group of people making a earth planet shape


Last night I was invited along to Channel 5 News to debate Sir David Attenborough’s thoughts on large families and overpopulation.  I was debating against Simon Ross from Population Matters, the overpopulation think tank for which Attenborough is Patron of.

You can see the arguments they use to try to persuade people to have smaller families, which in their opinion includes a more fulfilled life for women, a better quality of life, a better quality of parenting, more career success, adventurous holidays, meeting material requirements more easily, and a better quality of childhood.  Do have a read and let me know what you think.

In the meantime click on the video below to see our debate:
