Walking around these days you see more obese people than slim ones. Obesity is becoming an epidemic of huge proportions and it won’t go away. People are stuffing themselves with poor food that is supplied by the food manufacturers and it it needs to change.

Crops are no longer grown naturally, but fed with chemicals instead of allowing them to grow naturally. Many farmers have two or three crops a year fed by these chemicals and they all end up in the food factories. They are not natural, but have many chemicals added, and on the whole they are tasteless without adding more chemicals like salt, pepper and sauces to give them flavour.

I cannot for the life of me see why so many people go to McDonald’s and Burger King among others to have a meal. These are the main reasons why so many people are obese, apart from the poor food they eat at home.

Even cows, chickens and other animals are force feed with chemicals that will make them grow faster and fatter and this is no good. For when we put a steak and vegetables on the table we are ingesting these chemicals and it is not doing us any good.

Walking down the street you see obese people left and right, and this is worse in Britain than anywhere else, except perhaps the United States. In a few years time the hospitals are going to be overcrowded with people seeking medical help with their obesity.

It is a fact that obese people will suffer greatly from sickness including, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types such as breast and colon cancer. There is no way these people will live to a ripe old age as the present old age pensioners do. This will overload the NHS in Britain to such an extent that it will run out of money very quickly. In the end the whole NHS will collapse in on itself.

If people are to live to a ripe old age things have to change, and that means the way we eat will have to change rapidly. We cannot go on the way we are for this will lead to a catastrophe.

What A Farce

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, News with tags , , , , on 06/09/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is really going bonkers (and I put that politely). A Priory School in Lewes has gone so far as to ban skirts in order to introduce a more gender-neutral uniform.

The headmaster said, “Transgender students are only a small aspect of why we have made this decision, there are five or six trans-students currently at the school.” So the whole school has to wear a transgender uniform to satisfy these five or six queers?

I have a long time given up on Britain as a place to live, for the whole country is going mad. How long before other schools join the ‘transgender revolution’? It is sickening to me that such rules have to be passed to satisfy these people.

Several parents have criticised the move – especially since they weren’t consulted before the big change. One mother with a daughter at the school said that her daughter wasn’t happy with having her gender taken away. “My daughter said she has got a gender and it’s female so being gender neutral when she has got a gender is a big deal for her, as she’s proud to be a girl,” she commented.

“The hypocrisy is what gets me the most,” said another mum. “If girls dressing differently than boys is now to be considered sexist, then it is equally sexist to have female teachers wearing skirts and not wearing ties.” “If they want this, they must live the values they force on others and go fully gender free. The school is creating a hostile environment for girls by treating their views with contempt.”

Chief executive Susie Green said “adding gender neutral uniforms is one of many simple ways that schools can help any pupils struggling with their gender in any way. Schools need to take a clear line to accept and embrace all diversity, no matter how small the numbers affected.”

I find this most disturbing,  and wonder what the U.K. will be like in ten years time. It makes me wonder if Britain is going mad! What is our world going to look like in ten or twenty years time.

The Worst Year In History

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Plastic Rubbish with tags , , , , on 03/09/2017 by floroy1942

2017 has become the worst year in history as we see storms and flooding all across the world. This sort of thing never happened when I was a child, but today we have contaminated the world atmosphere as never before, and this is to blame for the terrible weather we have experienced all across the globe. If we continue, things will get much worse.

170824-noaa-texas-gulf-storm-harvey-njs-1105a_cfe6824a843278e082782d095a130cf9.nbcnews-fp-1200-800The United States has never seen such terrible flooding and wild fires in the south of the country. The flooding in Texas was solely due to the massive hurricane and rainfall that came with it and lasted for a week. This phenomenon was caused solely by the way mankind has contaminated the atmosphere. In other parts of the country wildfires have been destroying forests as never before, all due to the lack of rainfall, again due to mankind.

imagesBut this has not been happening only in the USA, for other countries like Bangladesh has suffered severe flooding that has driven tens of thousands of people out of their homes. We have seen much the same thing in the Far East where people are suffering.

images (1)In Africa a million people are starving due to the weather because they can no longer grow crops. Temperatures have reached more that 50 degrees in some parts of the world, and if you think this is going to stop, then you had better think again.

This phenomenon is due solely to mankind and the way we treat our planet. Atmospheric contamination is reaching levels that the world has not been able to handle, and for sure we humans will suffer in the long term.

images (2)We have become so concentrated on ourselves that we do not care what damage we are doing to our planet. It is time for us to think of the damage we are doing to this Earth. Governments must take action as quickly as possible to stop the pollution of our atmosphere, and that means drastically reducing the the number of vehicles on our roads world-wide, and taking action against factories that pollute the atmosphere.

SeaNet-World-Map-Great-Oceanic-Garbage-Patches-10-Year-PlanSomething must be done to ban plastic on our planet for this is the number one environment polluter. We already see major contamination of our oceans with plastic all across the world. Another thing that should be banned is the poisonous chemicals that farms use to grow crops, for this is eventually polluting our oceans.

I am nearly 75 and I will not be around for many years to come, but all this contamination will affect our children and theirs. Every person on the planet must think of the future, and what we are leaving for our children. It is clear that if we continue as we are they will suffer many hardships and many will die young.

images (4)Sad to say. the governments of the world are not taking any positive measures to reign in climate change, but as the world progresses they will will forced to in years to come. This will be most unpopular with the masses, but it must be done if the human race is to survive on Earth.

I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

Boys And Girls Or “Genderqueer”?

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, News, Primary Education with tags , , , , on 12/12/2016 by floroy1942
"Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer"

“Right, Now Get This Into Your Heads. You Are Not Boys And Girls Anymore You Are Genderqueer”

I have just read the biggest load of tripe I have come across in years. The U.K. government-funded ‘Educate and Celebrate’ Organisation has introduced a new rule where schools cannot call children as young as seven a boy or a girl as part of a major diversity drive.

It suggests terms such as ‘genderqueer’ and ‘panromantic’ – used to describe someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities. A book about to be released is described by the publishers as “the first book to explain medical transitioning for children aged seven and above”. 

Ellie Barnes, Educate and Celebrate founder, described the book as ‘much needed’. She said: “Not everyone identifies as male or female – that is fact.” Backed by Ofsted, the publishers have sent out the book called ‘Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?’ which features a fictional story about a 12-year-old boy transitioning from male to female. This book has been sent to 120 ‘best practice’ schools and suggests new terms to address young children.

Former Conservative Party chairman Lord Tebbit, told a Sunday newspaper: “I think it is damaging to children to introduce uncertainty into their minds.” I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.

I have to ask, where do these people come from? The world has changed to such an extent that people can come up with the most ludicrous ideas and they get accepted by the rank and file. Is the world going crazy or what?

People who come up with these stupid ideas belong in a mental asylum, plain and simple! Do they mean to make all future generations transgender or what? The mind boggles!

The School Debate

Theresa May

Theresa May

It amazes me that so many people are up in arms about Theresa May wanting to reintroduce grammar schools. Why, what is wrong with these people? Years ago these schools were the backbone of higher education, excluding university’s of course, and they were there for the more gifted youngsters. They were a beacon for the more intelligent children who eventually got into our university’s.

Corbyn The Fool

Corbyn The Fool

From this system came our brightest scientists, industry entrepreneurs and politicians and many more. Since we no longer have proper grammar schools this has all but disappeared.

Eleven-plus Exam

Eleven-plus Exam

Britain still has 166 grammar schools but they are nothing like they used to be. We need more throughout Britain to give our children a choice in education, and an opportunity to increase their knowledge above that which is taught in secondary modern schools.

I have to say that our education system is currently a total failure, with poor teachers, classroom sizes far too big, and a total lack of discipline, all creating a generation of idiots for the most part. Naturally I do not include all children or teachers in this category. Compared to years ago, few of our children are bright enough to get to university. If we ever stopped foreign students from entering them most would close down for lack of pupils.

In Days Gone By

In Days Gone By

When I compare today’s education system with what it was like when I was a child I have to say that the entire system is a shambles. Teachers of my day knew their subject back to front and inside out. You asked a question and you got an immediate answer, whereas today many teachers must refer to the lesson material before giving an answer.

Street Thugs

Street Thugs

Discipline has gone out the window because the teacher is not allowed to take any action against an unruly pupil, except perhaps to send them out of the class. Long gone are the most effective methods of teaching a child discipline in class, and today, if any action is taken the parents will be hammering on the headmaster’s door complaining like hell. No, I’m afraid child discipline is a thing of the past, which is evident in the child and teenage thugs, thieves and killers we have in our society today. I do not blame the schools entirely for this because many parents do little to bring up their child properly.

We make no difference today between a gifted child and a fool with the current system and that is a shame. Gifted children should be given a good education to make the most of their talents in grammar schools, but they can’t currently have that when sharing a class with dunces, to use an old word.

Grammar Schools In England

Grammar Schools In England

Ever since Tony Blair had exams made easier so that he could show high pass rates  for kids the whole system has gone down the drain. Many teachers are no longer trained properly, have scant knowledge of their chosen subject and in my view are practically worthless.

If teachers were trained properly they would know their chosen subject inside out, and be able to answer any question from pupils without referring to their books. It worked years ago why not now? The answer to that is because the teachers are not trained properly, and often enter schools before they are fully qualified because of a shortage.

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

If Britain is to move forward in the current high-tech world, we have to start training our children to behave properly, learn properly and be a credit to society, not some lout always looking for a fight.

If the grammar school idea is put into practice, we have to ensure that teachers are properly qualified, and the most gifted children are allowed to attend. The 11-plus exam certainly separates the wheat from the chaff, and this is precisely what we need if this country is to move forward. We need to nurture our more brighter pupils into becoming our future leaders in science, industry and politics.

Would You Call Your Child Pilot Inspektor?

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Europe, Insanity, Modern World, News, Parenting with tags , , , , on 30/08/2016 by floroy1942

It seems we are heading into the realms of dumb, sheer stupidity when it comes to naming our children these days. I just read an article where some of the most ridiculous names ever invented have been given to celebrity children. Who are these people trying to kid?

Jason Lee With Pilot Inspektor

There are better ways of getting your name in the papers than giving your children such idiotic names. Some of them may sound cute when the child is still a baby, but what happens when they get to schools age, of even worse, when they are adults. I would be utterly ashamed to have to tell, for example, the tax man or a prospective boss that my name is Pilot Inspektor. Have people totally lost it these days?

Here are some of the other names that celebrities have given their children:

Blue Ivy Carter (Beyonce and Jay Z)

 Little River Rocket joins siblings Daisy Boo, Petal Blossom, Poppy Honey and Buddy Bear

Sparrow James Midnight (Nicole Richie and Joel Madden)

Apollo Bowie Flynn (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale)

Maple Sylvie (Jason Bateman)

Apple (Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow)

Sailor Gene (Liv Tyler and Dave Gardner)

Cricket and Birdie - Two Sisters

Banjo Patrick Taylor (Rachel Griffiths)

Briar Rose (Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen)

Bingham ‘Bing’ Hawn Bellamy (Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy)

Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher

Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher (Tom Fletcher and Giovanna Fletcher)

Titan Jewell (Kelly Rowland and Timothy Witherspoon)

Bodhi Ransom (Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green)

Blue Ivy Carter (Beyonce and Jay Z)

I can just imagine some of these poor kids introducing themselves to their new friends, “Hi my name is Rocket Zot Worthington but you can call me Rocket!”, an utterance that would be swiftly followed by howls of laughter.

I have no idea how this stupid craze started, but I am sure the kids will regret it when they get older. They have my sympathy.

Roy.
