Sick of NuLabour yet, anyone?


FFS. Change the record!

Look at the date when I had my run-in with the knuckle-draggers. It was 1988. Your beloved Tories were still in power.

We are suffering the inevitable consequences of Labour's insistence on continuing the policies introduced over the previous 18 years by the Tories. The death of any sort of civic society and responsibility can be traced right back to the Thatcher era.

Could you expand on that a little?

The Brits have been going out, drink far to much and getting into fights for 100 of years.  It is just  reported far more widely now.  Personnally I blame the Romans.

We seem to have this need of putting all our problems, society`s problems in the governments hands, as if they can do anything about it. And when things get worse we blame the government.
Is this social conditioning?
What happened to basic human concern or love and respect for our fellow beings. Or am I just a stupid old hippy?

Don`t answer that ;-)

Here we go again! ::)
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

It is indeed a British problem.
Whenever I go abroad to anywhere in Europe I don't seem to see groups of whiny voiced toerags hanging about outside of shops harrasing innocent folk trying to go about their own business.
The problems for me involve bad parenting and bloody awful policing.
Or at least the lack of interest the police have in dealing with problems, partly knowing that the little bastards can laugh in their faces knowing the law can do nothing to really stop them.
As they grow out of teenage years so many are just hardened to doing wrong and generally trying to prove how "hard" they are they end up doing the stuff mentioned on this thread.
I would say that other countries don't seem to be as bad as ours when it comes to anti-social behaviour, and I am sure their kids are playing the same computer games/watching same movies/listening to similar music as here yet they don't seem to have as BIG a problem.
Too many parents have abdicated responsiblity and so has government.
I am not a jaikie.......I only help out when they are busy!

There was hardly a hint of trouble over at the CL final between Chelsea and Man United fans, and i'm sure the main reason is that they'd have known what they would have got from the police had they stepped out of line. Until the police are given the same powers in this country, i can't see things improving.
