I MUST STOP WATCHING TELEVISION AND READING NEWSPAPERS.
Couldn't do it, despite TV and newspapers being bad for ones mental health; either brainwashing people, depressing them or frustrating them I just had to have a quick look and glance, stumbled across a couple of things.
Just how much of their freedom are people going to give away and make sure that future generations grow up with a believe in surveillance being a good thing. Since Madeleine McCanns disappearance there has been coverage of child monitoring systems obviously with a view to increase sales of these goods, based on parents fears for their children. 'How well do you know your childminder?'
British troops are involved in the forces fiercest fighting for 50 years. They are being flown back from the blood of Iraq and Afghanistan in bandages. Yet despite promises of priority treatment they have a bigger fight on their hands with the over stretched NHS in order to receive treatment they need. Britain's last surviving military hospital is being closed down, despite it having 'state of the art' equipment, therefore denying injured soldiers the service and specialist support they require. This is a society where no one seems to take any responsibility; it is just passed on to others to look after the toddlers and troops.
