Absolutely. I still remember doing my A level revision by Tilley lamp.
Rotting rubbish in the streets. Unburied dead. Having to be rescued by
the IMF, like some Third World banana republic. Oh, no, hang on. That
was the last Labour Government.
Of course not. IMM's mad.
"Best"? Define "best"?
What like throwing out all the Tory yes-men in the Lords and replacing
them with Labour yes-men. That's a *huge* advance. Not.
And won't happen anyway. Nothing that's likely to threaten the position of
the incumbent will happen.

That's curious. I'm in the real world and did not see substantive
evidence of that at that time. However, I was approached by
somebody last week trying to sell the Big Issue and this wasn't under
the arches at Waterloo station.
Such as cabinet ministers.

You are annoyed because Dracula is not in charge. Andy, you will have to

I'm all for modernisation, but Labour is breaking the kinds of
traditions that have served Britain so well for centuries. Lord Woolf
today warned against the Draconian proposals to change the justice
system, and hardly a day goes by when Blunkett doesn't try out his
latest "Heydrich" manoeuvre. We already have the largest prison
population in Europe, yet the Govt seems desperate to lock ever more
people away, while preventing Maxine Carr from utilising HDC, a
thoroughly political decision merely to appease the right-wing gutter
Basically, this Labour government is not the Labour of old, neither is
it Tory or liberal, but some weird hybrid, led by Tony Blair in a very
dogmatic, but wrong, fashion. I dread to think what Blair actually has
in his mind as the ideal blueprint for Britain over the next ten,
twenty years, but I'll bet not many citizens will like it much.
Ask yourself, why do we need "anti-social" laws? (I assume you mean
legislation to confront anti-social behaviour.) What is so wrong
particularly with *British* society that so many citizens, not just
the young, appear to have absolutely no sense of right and wrong at
all? How many kids dread their parents being called to the school to
talk to the teacher, when they know that the teacher could easily face
a head-butting from a crazed father? British society is incredibly
We are now seeing the results of "Thatcher's children". She said there is
no such thing as society and promoted in a big way, me, me, me. Millions of
kids were brought up in that era being indoctrinated with selfishness and
non sense of community, and it now shows.
Britain is filthy. Travel around western Europe,: France: Germany, Holland,
etc. Britain is strewn with litter and fly tipping. Travellers persecute
rural areas (and urban too) and when eventually are moved on leave the place
strewn with filth that cost many 1000s to clear up.
Blame Thatcher. New Lab is left with the mess and is putting that right by
legislation and civil lessons at school. Great moves by New Lab. Although
root cause analysis says it is even deeper and constitutional change can
only stop it at source. Legislation is welcome, but only treating the
symptoms not the cause. Many blame the latchkey kids as homes require two
parents to work to support the family. Only 7% of homes have the mother at
home all day. Why? Because we pay far too much in mortgages. Why?
Because we have an artificial land shortage ramping up land, and hence house
prices (2/3 of the value of the average house is the value of the land).
Get the land sorted out, get the house prices down to affordable levels, and
then only the Dad need go out to work to support the family, then more
stable children and families. All quite simple.
