WORKING CLASS
« on: August 24, 2013, 04:02 PM »
HI i watched paul o gradys working britain on thursday night on bbc it brought back a lot of nostalgia, although it was about liverpool , we experienced the same back to back houses no one had out but pride , thinking back you never give it a thought what you had and did not have , when there was full employment back then you still had nowt and the community spirit was great , why as so much changed :)

George Osborne's bestman's Hedge fund has already made 18 million from the shares.

Sign the petition to re-nationalise British Rail....another disastrous privatisation that has done little except confuse the customer with the plethora of rail providers and fare structures.

In my opinion, politics is not worth engaging. Capitalism is broken and socialism is a pipe dream.

Democracy is no more than autocracy by consensus and, essentially, two parties of career politicians share the spoils in five yearly cycles.

We cannot even trust the police, the press and the clergy any more.

My advice, for what it's worth, is to ditch dogmatism, embrace pragmatism and get whatever you can for you and your families by all legal means available.

Cynical!? You bet I am.

I think that's a good policy, Fudge. We shouldn't allow our political beliefs to alienate our friends. After all, friendship is perhaps one of our most valuable possessions.  :)

Even friends should be able to have a discussion and remain friends.

Very true, jaywit, but I have seen a number of 'friendships' suffer through heated discussions over politics and religion.

Hi All, Hello from darkest wherever. Hi George, I agree with 95% of what you say. But I will stick with the pipe dream. NATIONALISE EVERYTHING.


Just a thought........


Daftjack.   ;D ;D ;D


P.S. I am paraphrasing here: I never thought to see these words on this forum "Come the revolution"    You go Greeny!!!

In a nutshell, George, you're not a happy chappy. Some people are just like that. Don't worry, you'll live.

On the contrary (or, au contraire as they say in Martinique  ;) ), I'm reasonably happy....just disappointed in and let down by nearly all sections of society to which we have traditionally looked for moral guidance. Law makers, law enforcers, and men (and ladies) of the cloth, no longer command (nor deserve) the respect of the masses and we must look elsewhere for suitable role models. Perhaps you can help me in my quest?
