St margaret of Thatch: "There is no such thing as society"

"I think we've been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it's the government's job to cope with it. 'I have a problem, I'll get a grant.' 'I'm homeless, the government must house me.' They're casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There's no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation."

If that's believing that there's no such thing as society then Hallaluyah! I'm a believer.

Treat with caution, ARRSE people. I had already seen this video, posted on YouTube yesterday by 'Webcameron'. What it actually shows is the Conservative leader speaking with passion and clarity to a lively but polite college audience, who applaud him at the end.

It's worth watching, in my opinion, but is 11 minutes long. Is this kind of sock-puppetry justified if it encourages more people to take an interest? I suppose all is fair in love, war, and general elections.

2. All of the major parties employ 'sock-puppets' to trawl internet forums posting rumours and rebuttals. Our advice to these maggots? Fuck off and leave us alone, we aren't interested. Any that are identified will be banned.

I love the way that people always refer to the fact that Cameron went to Eton like it's a bad thing.

Personally I quite like the idea of my Nation's leader having gone to the best school in the Country and therefore having received a good education. I went to a comprehensive school under a Labour Government and it was shit. Eton has a long history of producing great leaders for this Nation. I don't see why there is any reason to change this.

Elitist attitude? You bet. Socialism is for people who have fcuk all and want to share it with everyone else.

Full quote:

I think we have gone through a period when too many children and people have been given to understand"I have a problem, it is the Government's job to cope with it!" or"I have a problem, I will go and get a grant to cope with it!" "I am homeless, the Government must house me!" and so they are casting their problems on society and who is society? There is no such thing! There are individual men and women and there are families and no government can do anything except through people and people look to themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then also to help look after our neighbour and life is a reciprocal business and people have got the entitlements too much in mind without the obligations, because there is no such thing as an entitlement unless someone has first met an obligation and it is, I think, one of the tragedies in which many of the benefits we give, which were meant to reassure people that if they were sick or ill there was a safety net and there was help, that many of the benefits which were meant to help people who were unfortunate—" It is all right. We joined together and we have these insurance schemes to look after it" . That was the objective, but somehow there are some people who have been manipulating the system and so some of those help and benefits that were meant to say to people:"All right, if you cannot get a job, you shall have a basic standard of living!" but when people come and say:"But what is the point of working? I can get as much on the dole!" You say:"Look" It is not from the dole. It is your neighbour who is supplying it and if you can earn your own living then really you have a duty to do it and you will feel very much better!"

There is also something else I should say to them:"If that does not give you a basic standard, you know, there are ways in which we top up the standard. You can get your housing benefit."

But it went too far. If children have a problem, it is society that is at fault. There is no such thing as society. There is living tapestry of men and women and people and the beauty of that tapestry and the quality of our lives will depend upon how much each of us is prepared to take responsibility for ourselves and each of us prepared to turn round and help by our own efforts those who are unfortunate. And the worst things we have in life, in my view, are where children who are a great privilege and a trust—they are the fundamental great trust, but they do not ask to come into the world, we bring them into the world, they are a miracle, there is nothing like the miracle of life—we have these little innocents and the worst crime in life is when those children, who would naturally have the right to look to their parents for help, for comfort, not only just for the food and shelter but for the time, for the understanding, turn round and not only is that help not forthcoming, but they get either neglect or worse than that, cruelty.

Indeed. Spool forward to about 8 minutes and you'll see him perform better than any politician I've speaking off the cuff in many a year. Sensible, reasoned responses to people who were not natural born Tories, let alone the crowd of hand picked, multicultural party faithful that you'd get if a senior Labour politician was speaking on camera.

We might not even have to bother having Dave killed and replaced by Norman Tebbit on 8 May if he keeps performing like this.

God help Labour if this, and jibes about Eton, is the best they can do for election propaganda.
