Where Did We Go Wrong?

Having survived 72 years on this planet I have to ask where we went wrong in the past to bring the country to the state it’s in now. I scan the news daily, and never a day goes by where I don’t read that someone somewhere has been murdered, robbed or raped, and I fail to see what has happened to the British people.

Today I read that a schoolboy had been stabbed to death by another pupil at a school in Scotland, and almost every day is the same. Pupils even stab teachers in school because for some reason they get angry.

Old people robbed while they lay desperately hurt after being struck by a hit-and-run driver. No attempt made to help them, just take their money and leave them on the street. Very often, youngsters break into an old person’s house, knife them and steal their money and valuables because they are an easy target.

Go into town on a saturday night and you will be lucky in many places if you don’t see young girls lying comatose on the pavement after a night of drugs and heavy drinking, and you will more than likely see a bunch of drunken youths fighting viciously outside a disco or club. More often than not they are also high on drugs.

Road rage is another symptom of modern times in that people do stupid things on the road and the offended driver gets out of his car in a vicious rage and attacks the other driver physically. It happens all across the country and it never seems to end. Why?

What has got into people these days that makes them so aggressive at what they consider the slightest of insults. Pretty soon you won’t even dare to say “Good morning” to anyone for fear they may take it the wrong way and attack you.

I know this is not a general situation for everybody, but the number of Press reports of murder and assault have gone through the roof these last ten years and there has to be a reason for it.

There are I think three reasons for the current wave of violence on our streets, one is the parents, another is the complete farce that our system of justice  has become, and finally, the breakdown of our education system.

Is This The Correct Way To Bring Up A Child?

Is This The Correct Way To Bring Up A Child?

Firstly it is a total failure of the last generation of parents to teach their offspring respect, honesty and integrity. Most are happy to have their children ‘out from under their feet’ and don’t give a damn about how they behave or what they do while away from home. All too often the child says, “I want….” and before you know it they are given it. No effort has been made to teach children the three basic values, and now we have to live with the consequences.

When I look back at my own childhood I remember getting a clip around the ear for some minor infraction, or my dad’s slipper across my backside or the cane at school for something more serious. It made me realize in time that there are rules to the way you live and I was made to abide by them. The three basic values were instilled in me and I have lived by them to this day.

All that disappeared years ago, and partly because of the ‘Goody Goody Brigade’ who convinced certain important people that to discipline a child had to be done by purely talking to them. You were not allowed to hit a child for any reason. Where did these people came from?

Parents quickly began to live by these rules, and soon children lost the one thing that allowed them to learn how they should behave and live their lives, i.e. discipline. Many of today’s youth, especially in the poorer parts of town, are nothing more than thugs going around in gangs, some no more than ten years old. They do as they please, attack innocent people just for fun, rob shops for the thrill, and the sad thing is they get away with it. Even if they are caught by the Police they are more often than not let off with a caution not to do it again, which they naturally ignore.

Our modern justice system also has a lot to answer for because they no longer give meaningful sentences to those who break the law, and this is proven by killers getting light sentences and not even having to serve their full term. Gone are the days when you were locked up for twenty or thirty years for killing someone, now they get sentenced to ten years but are out in three. It’s no wonder the system has failed in preventing such crimes.

Furthermore, our education system has failed an entire generation of young people, many of whom are leaving school without the ability to read or write properly, and as for adding two and two – forget it.

What is even more frightening is that Muslim immigrants have so much power in the country that they are slowly destroying what is left of our education system with their demands for classes in arabic because they have not taken the trouble to integrate and learn the language of their adopted country.

Today I read that the population of Britain will increase from its current 62.5 million to over 74 million within the next 12 years. And why? Two reasons, mainly the massive immigration into our country that is still going on, and to a very much smaller extent, the increased life expectancy of our old folks.

As many know by now, most British families restrict themselves to two children, but at the same time, Muslim families will have five, six or even more children. In a few years this will make them a very large portion of the population, and you can imagine what will happen then.

I am just glad I will not be around to see it!

Britain’s Drunken Youth

Posted in Britain, Child Discipline, Children, England, Parenting, Relationships, Teen alcohol abuse, Teen Violence, Teens, UK with tags , , on 24/04/2011 by floroy1942

Once again Britain is in the news for all the wrong reasons. A report out today by the think-tank Demos, shows that British girls are the biggest drinkers among females in the developed world, and for that you can read ‘on the planet’.

Early Start On The Road To Hell

A third of all 13-year-olds questioned by the survey team from YouGov stated they had been drunk at least twice, and one in three aged between 11 and 21 said they had drunk so much they had lost control and/or thrown up. As if that is not enough, half of all 15 year-olds said they had been drunk at least twice, which is double the average for other OECD countries where these statistics are gathered. Researchers reported that many drank to excess because (a) it made them feel good, and (b) they could forget all their troubles.

Binge-Drinking UK:

It has been known for many years that much of British youth are often obnoxious drunken louts, which is evident from the general attitude of foreigners who witness their antics when they go abroad on holiday. My wife and I live in Spain, and every year during the holiday season we see the same spectacle repeated over and over. Just one look at the faces of passers-by is enough to see their disapproval.

Good Night Out Last Night? – I Have No Idea!

Young girls dressed up like tarts (which seems to be the fashion at the moment) yelling their heads off, shouting insults at each other and passers-by with mouths full of foul language like no other. And as if that is not enough, they care not where they empty their stomachs of the excess of alcohol, and are as likely to urinate in the street too. Make no mistake, the young males are just as bad, but according to the report, they do not rank as high as their female counterparts.

One Careless Night Out Can Ruin Two Young LIves

The Demos report links the high consumption of alcohol among young women with the dramatic increase of teenage pregnancies during the last decade or so, another point where British scores are highest. It goes without saying that a drunken girl is more likely to have sex with some young stud feeling ‘hot under collar’ than a sober one. Some 11% said they had sex without a condom and the same number said they regretted it later. The number of young girls giving birth has rocketed in recent years, some as young as twelve or thirteen.

It does not surprise me that the report indicates most of the blame for this current behaviour can be laid at the feet of the previous Labour government. It was Labour who brought in the longer opening hours for pubs, bars and clubs, and admittedly, this would not have been a problem in any country other than Britain. But so fixated are the British youth on booze that all they see is the opportunity to stay out all night drinking.

A David Attenborough ‘Tongue-in -Cheek’ Look At Binge-Drinking:

A Regular Sight On A Saturday Night

More to the heart of the problem I believe is the steady erosion of family life in the UK, where parents have no idea what their children are doing, where they are, or who they  are with. The parents are usually sleeping blissfully, untroubled by their offsprings whereabouts when they stagger up the garden path at 3 o’clock in the morning, and make a dive for the toilet to throw-up.

The steady increase in the number of broken homes has also had its impact on teenage behaviour, as they often feel they have no-one to turn to when they are troubled. The survey shows that for many, drinking is an escape from all their problems.

Young people rarely have anyone to talk to about their troubles because the parents as a rule do not have the time, or the inclination to sit and talk to them, and for this reason they must find their own way, which sadly is often the road to ‘binge-drinking’.

The Labour tactic used to address the growing problem was government messages to ‘Drink Responsibly”, which naturally fell on deaf ears.

Parents And Binge Drinking:

In The Cold Grey Light Of Dawn!

The Demos report suggests that the government should do more to prevent people under the drinking age  from obtaining alcohol in any form. They suggest that TV and Internet advertising of alcohol should be banned, but to be honest, I do not see that solving the problem.

Social attitudes must change, and parents need to make more effort in becoming involved with their children by giving them better guidance as they start life’s perilous journey. But there again, considering the shortfalls of the present generation of parents, who will be fit to do this?
