going to the dogs!!!

I hate that phrase

No its not!

No denying, it isn't a time of plenty. And some people are really struggling

But, compared with what? 90% of the rest of the world, most of us here are alright

You've only got to watch the programme "The Worst Place To Be A..."
to get some sense of how difficult life is for some people (even by their own country's standards) in other parts of the world.

I feel so fortunate to live here in the UK which despite all it's faults and problems, is a really wonderful country.

Did you mean to write your thread title in the style of Scooby Doo?

So you don't actually have, like er, a theory, do you OP, capatilist (sic) whether intrinsically (wtf does that mean?) in the true sense, or not?

moody I know it's bad form but it's 'fewer children' not 'less'. You knew that, didn't you, but were too polite to say.

Meanwhile, let's spend less money on schools because wtf do people have to know how to read when they can scrape a living scavenging rubbish tips like people in other parts of the world?

Like er, no I don't. Do I need a theory to back up my assertion that the country isn't so bad? confused

I'm 61 and people have been saying 'This country's going to the dogs' for as long as I can remember. Either it's a very long decline or people have a rosy view of life in the past.
