"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

George Pitcher Says:

"Acts of evil are committed by ordinary people who have gone very badly wrong, either losing or failing to gain their sense of human dignity and morality."
Pitcher was the runner-up to McNulty (see below). The boys in Doncaster did unspeakable things. Who brought them up? Who seeded the culture for these boys and their parents? Who has made it possible for this to be accepted as 'normal' behaviour to some people? I voted against Blair/Brown yet I feel complicit for not speaking out sooner so how much more guilt must Cameron & Co feel?

The Left must stop pushing their 'utopian' ideal, which doesn't exist, and acknowledge the quirks and morals of our individual humanity instead. In total, they've done so much more harm than good in the past hundred and ten years that I'd rather they just sloped away into eternal twilight and left us alone.  They've ruined the fabric of society and I intend to live as long as it takes to throw a custard pie in their direction.

As for Mr Pitcher, who wants, in his own words,  to 'bang up the parents', I think he should look deeper and wider for the co-culprits and not write such a mob-teasing, off-with-their-heads, article.

I just don't hear the msm asking the questions they should. They have a far greater opportunity than we do but they sycophantically parrot Our Master's Voice and save their jobs.  No-one speaks for the people anymore, except the people themselves - and what do we hear?


It's a very simplistic exposition I know, but we don't seem to have come very far do we?

UPDATE: Iain Duncan-Smith has an excellent article in the Telegraph. Save the mother, save the children
Maybe Philip Larkin was right all along: "Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf. Get out as early as you can, and don't have any kids yourself."

  1. There is a lot of condemnation of the feckless lifestyles of the 'underclass', and it is true that a definite culture of 'it's me rights' has evolved there, but, as you seem to be saying, theirs is not the entire blame. They are merely taking what advantage they can of a system which has let them down very badly and which actually encourages their irresponsibility.

    The party that proclaims itself the party of egalitarianism is the worse offender at maintaining the gulf. The Poor are vital to the Labour Party as voting fodder, and as the hypocrisy and lies of Socialism become more apparent, there grows the need to keep the Poor less and less able to make informed decision, by adulterating the education system and fostering a culture of selfishness and self-indulgence.

    Therefore, if you are saying that we are all to blame by omission, by complacency, or by optimism that, somehow, things will work out for the best, I agree with you.

  2. Thanks Edgar, that's what I was saying. I do have a tendency to sarcasm & understatement at times - most of the time actually - it's the Yorkshire in me.
