NOT SO GREAT BRITAIN ! A response to the recent UNICEF Report on Childrens well being across 21 Industrialised Nations.
Was originally gonna call this post Britain's Fucked and I Blame Esther Ranson, then go on about how organisations such as Child Line have helped give children too much power, then I thought that I don't advocate corporal punishment as a solution, and parents often abuse their power. The same can also be said of police and teachers. But I don't think that it's right to remove their power. It's all about a balance, and at this moment Britain is an unbalanced nation where parents are scared to say no, and kids grow up with no discipline. You could trace it back to the militant left in the 60's with their ideas of Liberation. I don't advocate that women should stay at home and be perfect housewives, but I do believe it is the mums role along with dad to bring up the children. Not a government funded day nursery's. I blame Margaret Thatcher for that; she encouraged the breakdown of the family, both parents working to pay the mortgage. No time for the kids, motivated by material wealth. Our children aren't deprived of PlayStations, Big Macs or Nike trainers, they are deprived of morals, values, faith and respect; the foundations of every society. Without these you are heading for the worst sort of anarchy. Young kids killing themselves with drugs, guns and underage sex. Is this what John Sinclair's White Panther Party and the MC5 meant when they wanted 'Dope, Guns and Fucking in the Streets'? I blame the media for filling kids heads with images of perfection, popstars, footballers and models. They have also demonised the young, more folk devils and moral panics. A culture of fear has been created, any young person with a hood is obviously up to no good. The ASBO generation, now that's no solution. Kids wear 'em as badges of honour and the authorities don't actually enforce them. Single mums are scapegoats, but children need positive male role models, there are so many things to proportion blame to, it's not just one thing, it's everything and in a society where our Prime Minister takes no responsibility for his actions it's no wonder no one else does and just blames someone or something else. The three main political parties and people in general need to do something and soon, because if we don't someone else will, after all the kids are our future. The 'Griffin Youth' anyone ?
