When Did This Great Country Start Going To Rat-sh1t?

#1
Just a thought really but has anyone any ideas or opinions on the subject "When did the country start going to rat-sh1t?"

Was it when Maggie got unceremoniously turfed out of Downing Street? The wxnker Bliar and his cronies getting into No 10 in 1997?
The death of Churchill?
The invasion or Iraq/Afghanistan?
Cyclops taking up residence in Downing Street uninvited?
Joining the EU?

Anyone got any strong views on this?

What about the lack of respect for law and order or the lack of education for our children? :?

It started to go downhill when Maggie was ousted by Major, the current idiot has just seemed to have hastened the problem.

The lack of respect for Law and Order I think corresponds quite easily with the lack of an effective deterrent from schools and police when dealing with petty crime i.e a clip round the ear.

Also the lack of people wanting to get involved as the right seems to be with the perpetrator rather than the victim(s) so where a street being ravaged by kids would have the neighbours doing something, now everyone is scared because they think they will end up being the ones prosecuted for being a peado, child beater.

The other problem is the blame culture, everyone else is to blame apart from yourself, nobody takes responsibility for their actions as the Government has become so intrusive in our lives it makes actually making a decision that doesn't involve H&S, Police or any of the other agencies or falling foul of the hundreds of new laws that have been introduced.

The biggest casualty of all has been common-sense, unfortunately without society will become a lot worse.

Next question, please.
Yes. When we let that gang of porridge wogs run the economy and the country. Why the hell would you let people from a country that has to be funded by its near neighbours to the tune of billions of pounds run your economy?


WWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

re-stilly: my personal views entirely. I thought it was just me!

I'd agree with the late 90's. Werewolf, care to elaborate?

The compensation culture has to take a lot of the blame. People get these fukking adverts in their face that if they've been injured, they can get loads of money for doing what? Yeh, squat. This then allows the chavs out there to think that they can get by by doing the square root of fukk-all for the rest of their pitiful lives and get paid to do it! Wxnkers all

The bonus system (not the pitiful Civil Service scheme) in the banking world. I mean, what the fukk do these tossers produce apart from more wealth for their already wealthy clients/corporations and themselves?



Clip round the ears - that'll be me then!

When we lost the empire.

UNtil then we had two jobs in this country - tofficers and soldiers.

Every other bit of wealth we made wass off the back of somebody elses sweating. Then what happens, we give them up and stop ritually beating people for putting the milk in the cup before the water, and we no longer command any respect any more. What hastened this more than anything? Tetleys and PG Tips. Bloody tea bags. Once our chai-wallahs saw that it was being made easier for them to make the golden drink, well we were on a downward spiral from that day.

I say we hunt down the CEOs of those companies and burn them in the street.

It's a diamond question mate!

Post WW1, the general strike and the depression?
Post WW2, the austerity years?
1960's, the closure of the railways, permissive society, hippies.
1970's, the closure of the mines and shipyards, entry to the EU
1980's, corporate and personal greed, the Falklands and Thatcher losing the plot. Poll Tax
1990's, Conservative sleaze, Blair and Neu Arbeit, more corporate and personal greed.
2000......Labour sleaze, Conservative sleaze, Lib Dem sleaze, the rise of the BNP, power ceded to Europe.

Pick a Point.

Personally I blame the day Mars renamed Marathons as Snickers.

What are you talking about?! This England is a garden of Eden, an idyll and yet a triumph of civilisation, a model that the world should follow in our just Imperial Righteousness.

Saying that though, I might just move to France. This place is full of nutters.

52BC When the Italians took over.
I didn't think Claudius invaded until 43AD.

Anyway, the country went to ratshit once the cold war was over and everyone from eastern Europe started flooding the country.
Mea culpa! It was 55Bc, ( I was early) When Julius Ceasar decided to have a holiday in England, and chose Kent.
It was the start of all the Pizza Express chains, not to mention Bella Pasta

(Wah Shield to maximum)1997: New Labour win the general election and Tony Blair becomes PM.

This is how the world ends; not with a bang but with a crap song...

"Things, Can Only Get BETTER!" :x (Wah Shields down).
