Britain is broken. Maybe not in the same way that David Cameron thinks, but it is broken none the less.

Its only broken because we have chosen to let it get that way, apathy is a dangerous disease

Is it just me or is junk mail much less interesting than it used to be?

I used to get free samples of chocolate and other useful stuff, decent money off coupons, really interesting holiday brochures.....

Now it's all car insurance, credit cards and plastic sacks from pseudo charities.

Complete junk. I'd be as well putting a letter box on my dustbin!

We put our junk mail back in the post box.

We have a sign on the door saying that we don't want it but they still stick it through.

Does the stuff you put back in the post box ever come back to you again? Cause if it did, you would get bigger and bigger deliveries every day..

When we used to cram into that smelly Anderson shelter back in the forties, with our heads down, night after night we got used to it, after a while. Same applies now, to a degree,It's just a war with a difference?

So, once we get the right commanders in place, using the correct weapons, having the guts and spunk to get to grips with the problems, forcefully, we must be patient, waiting for the 'All Clear' sirens to sound, so we can live again?

So do we have to nuke ourselves for this grand plan to be effective? Can't we just nuke the chavs?

Met quite a few 'Old Comrades' a couple of weeks back, at you know where, and chatted to a few. Asked some of the WWII'ers if they would move elsewhere, by choice, if they were younger. They were unanimous! Not Bl**dy likely, this is our country, our home, we 'ain't moving!!

Just watched Master Chef, final bit at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, dedicated to Stan Goodyear, a Chelsea Pensioner who died last year. He was an Ex. RSM of mine, who did close on forty years I think for Queen and Country, a nicer bloke you would be hard pressed to find.

Died in the country he loved and served so well, God Bless Him.RIP, Stan.:

Put things in perspective, what do you hate about this island ? probably the same as the majority of honest hard working decent people, we have been hi jacked by the vocal minority, the know alls and do gooders who would see the useless and the criminals with more rights than you or me, who would happily tax you to death in the name of climate change ? Its not rocket science and its not dangerous just use your voice and your will to change this Island into a proud and prosperous nation again, Doing nothing is not an option anymore

Re: The "Is it just me or......." thread

Well I've recently found the BAOR site,and reading about the blown up bridges on the Elbe, which I saw in person as a twenty year old something trooper, made me think about how those on the other side had it, until the wall came down, and how many died reaching for freedom? Not so bad these old islands, nothing a good, big, new broom won't sort. Yours, Ever Hopeful!:

Unfortunately not, has to be total and global. Seriously, go on YouTube and watch 'Threads', a more depressing film you will never find. And thats not just because its based in Sheffield

But if we don't all speak up ZF, the new broom will be watered down to a feather duster by the soft-headed vocal minority.
