It is becoming difficult to weed out a worthwhile subject from the misery that is being heaped on the British public. Day after day we are subjected to humiliation from all quarters. Yesterday I watched the weekly Punch and Judy Show called PM's Question Time where the opposition asks a series of meaningless questions which the PM avoids answering. In the meantime the nation is facing a crisis in industry, the young (those that are employable) cannot secure a job, foreign criminals are committing unspeakable crimes and nobody is even addressing the social breakdown that down here on planet Earth we are witnessing.
We, as a nation, still 'bung' India foreign aid which apparently is expected to encourage them to award us lucrative contracts. It is being reported that India in return for our generosity has just awarded a major new 'plane' contract to France (who don't give them anything!). Astra Zeneca has just announced the astonishing news that 7500 skilled people will soon lose their jobs. The bad news continues unabated.
In addition we now discover that the war our troops have been waging in Afghanistan which inherently most of us knew was not a great idea has all been a waste of time. So many brave lads killed or maimed and the Taliban (with the support of Pakistan) has won the battle of hearts and minds! We will eventually leave when the American and British politicians want to gain an electoral advantage and nothing will have changed.
Despite all the evidence to the contrary the UK Border Force still find it too difficult to prevent lawless individuals from strolling into this country and committing crimes against us. Even when we catch one he dies in his cell before he can be brought to trial. What is going on? Can we not do anything right? This freedom of movement throughout Europe clearly disadvantages the UK and should be brought to an end. It is yet another example of the EU doing the British no favours.
Everywhere we look the standards that we have held dear for centuries in this country are being eroded. Nothing seems to work like it did particularly in the public sector where some civil service departments appear close to collapse. Common sense has left government and been replaced by hand wringing, apathy and self serving greed.
Everywhere we look life has become a race to the bottom. The problem is we don't yet know how deep the bottom is. I get the impression that it will be a long, slow, painful descent into the abyss. Never mind folks Frankie Cocozza found his way onto the 'Wright Stuff' earlier this week! At least there is some good news!
