Before I begin this piece, I’d just like to say, I abhor violence in anyway, shape or form, and the criminal opportunists and children who rioted in our cities these past few days should feel the full measure of the law.
But I have to laugh when I hear the media call these people criminals, which of course they are, but hey? Isn’t hacking into a murdered person’s phone criminal? Isn’t the false hope they gave to the loved ones of this person absolutely and utterly abmonable, beyond reprehensible, criminally evil? Just to sell more newspapers, to make them more money. Again, not to make light or in anyway excuse the rioting, but the media make these idiots look like Pick’n’Mix shoplifters!
And I also laugh again when I hear our “politicians” talk about the rioters being criminals, because to my mind, there are no bigger criminals in this country than the ruling classes. They are totally and utterly corrupt, completely rotten to the core. They don’t have to go out and loot a Plasma telly, they just stick it on their expenses and hope no one’s watching. These “politicians” have got to realise, we don’t believe a word they say, and as Truman said about Nixon, we know when they’re lying, it’s when their lips move! They have screwed billions and billions of pounds out of this country, with their dear friends and colleagues, the bankers, and continue to do so, yet tell us they’ve cleaned up their act. They are singularly responsible for the massive lowering of the moral tone in this country, as I’ve said before, your average brainwashed consumer thinks well, the politicians can get away with murder and seem to have no conscience, we’ll have some of that!
The politicians can’t ever fix the damage they’ve done to their reputation, the expenses scandal has confirmed politics is one big “Old boy’s club” where the gravy train is ridden daily, nay hourly. And no worries if you’re disgraced or sacked, you’ll get a nice fat pension and one of your buddies will give your a job as an advisor with a huge salary to boot. And if anyone still thinks that any of these “people” give a damn about us, well I’m afraid you’re sorely mistaken. They have one God, one goal, and that’s money, nothing more. They’ve raped and wrecked our society, and expect us to foot the bill!
These “politicians” approve the brainwashing of the masses via tv and the media in general, programming them to desire the newest car, the newest appliance or gadget, to perpetuate the consumer society. Trouble is, the goodies keep getting more and more costly. These fools who looted probably saw it as their only chance to get their hands on the big prizes, hypnotised in their desire to consume, without any thought for the consequences. And if their motivation was political, why not riot in Parliament, three quarters of the country would be rooting for them!
And of course we couldn’t use water cannons to break up the rioters? In a week where Amnesty and other human rights organisations refused to engage with the government about their policy on torture, because they think the debate will have no credibility, what, we can torture people, but heaven forbid we use a water cannon! Yeah, right……
And who gave our children the power over adults? Probably the same politically correct persons who are angry about the self same kids trashing our cities. These kids have no respect for themselves or others. And heaven forbid we attempt to discipline them. When I see toddlers out on my street after 6 pm I have to wonder what the hell are their parents thinking? Not from the hysterical “the streets are alive with Paedophiles” bullshit the media spout to sell papers, but from a love/respect standpoint. Do these people know where their kids are? Judging by recent events the answer must be no.
I do believe we can make this beautiful country honest and decent again, and I do sincerely believe the majority of people in this country have a well balanced set of morals, and do know right from wrong. Such a pity we can’t depend in any way, shape or form on our government, or the media to show us the way……
