Recommended Posts

We have the highest drug using population in Europe

we have a higher Prison population than the rest of Europe

Our Prisons are full to braking point

Our housing policy lays in ruins

We have millions waiting for social housing and non is being built

We must have tens of thousands in the early stages of reposession

We must have almost 3 million on the dole now

Our Banks are technically insolvent

Nobody is lending

We have the highest personal debt in western europe

We must have one of the highest government debts when you take into account PFI and pension liabilities

Our industry lays in ruin mainly run by foreign entities (corus, Jaguar landrover) and what there making there is simply no demand for.

Our elected elite are all aware and are scrambling for every last penny they can nick of the tax payer to feather there nests before the whole house of cards falls in on them.

Gordon Brown looked Broken yesterday at PMQ's

Cameron has no answers and neither does Osbourne

WE Lay in Ruin, how can house prices ever go up? 10 years from now we wont even be able to keep our electric supply up to demand if not sooner.

Anybody buying a house now needs there head testing unless they are cash buyers.

Oh, cheer up, it's not that bloody bad.

If it was I'd have left already. I have sunshine and company. That's all that matters.

I mean, I know it's all going to hell, but the only physical effect of worrying about it is that you'll start to feel like crap. Won't change a damn thing, you'll just feel worse than you would if you simply went "ah, f&ck it" and got hammered instead. :)

I refuse to let the actions of a government get me down, would rather not give them the satisfaction.

The fact that buying a house is one of the biggest problems facing me as a UK citizen makes me glad I'm not in another country where the biggest problems are a lot more scary.

Well today the sun was shining, I had a nice time watching Wimbledon on the TV, I have food on the table and a bed for the night.

A damn sight better than most of the world.

You're probably right about house prices, but I think 21st century Britain is undervalued by some of the British.

Look on the bright side; there are many things that one can puff one's chest out with patriotic pride.

Let's see, there's the largest DNA database in the world and more CCTV cameras pro rata than anywhere else too, including those terribly nice countries who are also sooooo very concerned about the safety and security of their citizens such as Syria, North Korea and China.

We have a Labour Government, that is a good enough reason to be depressed!

Cheer up, they'll be gone soon! Pretty big thing to look forward too... without the recession we'd be having 5 more years of that fat scottish pillock.

Always funny to try and be optimistic on this site. ;)

Still....you've got to laugh though haven't you.

Perhaps if we all have a nice cup pf tea would that make things better?

Things... can only get better!

Those were the days..... Prezza, Mandy and Blair all widening their fat ar*es and about to c*ap all over Britain.

What a wasted decade; debt, lies and a wilful desire to bring this once proud nation to its knees. They and their brown nosing cronies should be strung up.

That's the right approach - kept a nation's spirit high during the long dark days of the blitz whilst driving back Thatcher's Stormtroopers in the 1980's.

We have a Labour Government, that is a good enough reason to be depressed!

I bought a house in 2007 and am about to enter a divorce.

I have plenty of reasons to be depressed if I want to!

On the other hand, I am alive and in good health. I will leave depression to others.

So shoot me!

School was not what it is today in the 1970's

AS for depressed, not at all. Have a new council house that me and the kids are moving into in Ludlow next Thursday, have just got my full time contract with a big IT company after working as a contractor for them for 2 years (although a 10K pay cut, it's a job). and have very low serviceable debt and some savings.

fluck the morons who MEWED and thought they owned there houses as they gave it the big one to me.

My next project in the new house with a big garden since the house was built 50 years ago, is the become as self sufficient in food production as possible :)

So what....I've just joined the local golf club so I can hack my way round the countryside while it all goes to sh1t.

I mean what is the point of worrying....so we'll all have to spend less on chocolate fondue fountains in argos...life will be different but maybe no worse. Flexibility and adaptability are going to be the characteristics of the survivors of browns britain.

That's the spirit, mate. Increase your viewing of soaps and reality TV programmes is my advice.

Might I suggest you add a daily dose of The Jeremy Kyle Show and Trisha?

Watch enough of them and you won't even notice, never mind care that the country's rushing headlong towards a police state.

Oh, hold on, you already watch them?

Ah, I understand your post now.
