      Agree with both of you it's so true.

      On a similar note I was watching the Alf Garnett film last night/early hours of this morning. It's a wander they allow it on the TV in this politically correct day and age but how true to life it is.........and show's what our country used to be like (GREAT Britian)

            Opinion in 1957/2007

            1957 "Somebody" has an opinion and people listen, starts a very successful political carreer, earns loads of money, becomes prime minister, retires with a knighthood and fantastic pension

            2007 "Somebody" too careful to express an opinion in case he ends up with a criminal record ....................................

              jesus its frightning all true. my opinion for what its worth is we are like we are today because we are all lazy and can,t be bothered to challenge the pc prats who make a good living out of saying stupid things. when maggy thatcher killed of the unions we the small little people lost our voice. when i was little my mother used to say the most stupidest of things because she never took the time to think about what she had just said. now it looks like my mothers in charge. i was at school in 1957 so i know every word weldec has printed is the absolute truth. i now work in a school and some of the things i hear the social workers say is so stupid i sometimes think i,m watching the simpsons. an example, johnny only broke 37 windows because his father lives 100 miles away and has,nt phoned him this morning. true i heard it myself. same conversation johnny was seen in town at 2 am ( he,s 9). reason he could,nt sleep because he did,nt get up untill 5pm. but he was smoking and the police had to bring him home to his mother for the third time this week. answer your picking on him because he,s coloured. what chance has this kid got with morons like these people in charge. answer none at all , and in 9 years time he will be breeding. thank god i,m old

                  every thing every one has said is very true. I was in my last year of high school last year and i seen some things that made even me wish the cane was still around.
                  eg: Boy who shall remain nameless smashing throu a wall with hammer in tech class. Teacher shouts at him boy hits the teacher in the face and gets suspended for 1 week nothing further happens because his mom n dad are separated and has a troubled background! maybe if he was punished he would realize he can get away with this bad behavior and will stop doing it.

                    I applaude all your replies, we are the people that have a voice and we once upon a time lived in a democratic society, the voice is still there but the democracy has dissapered. If we all (the goverment that is) want to be politically correct then please please can they educate the majority (as it is becoming) the one word that has been removed from our vocabulary and that word is RESPECT.

                      You cannot blame Maggie Thatcher for today's problems, today people get more money for sitting on their backsides than working so they let their kids run wild, while Dad's go to the pub and the mother goes to bingo or whatever, this government is to blame for all the woes in the country today keeping people off work on big benefits whilst flooding the country out with workers who will work for peanuts, good strategy if you work it out, the lazy monkeys on benefits will vote for them so will the immigrants for giving them jobs.
                      People today have no pride and are selfish and think of no one but themselves.
                      So blame today's government who have had 10 years to sort this mess out but have ended up making it worse.
                      The best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give to others

                            Be interesting Simon as the ethnic minorities (not so much of the minority now days) have changed so much it would have to incorporate a lot of eastern europeans now..............
