Labour has ceased to be civilised, for it has no clear vision of the meaning of this civility. It is no longer good, for it has lost sight of the common good. This recession may be global, but it is Labour’s fault that the United Kingdom is the worst place nation in the western world to cope with its effects. Labour has become the embodiment of that for which it always despised the Conservatives: it is now the undoubted party of unemployment, recession, inflation and increased poverty. Labour is seduced by celebrity and beguiled by vanity.
Just how can the Labour government get away with all this. Do you remember how the BBC led the attack on John Majors government. Where are the BBC now. Labour and the BBC are one, as far as I am concerned . The BBC hates to criticise Labour, they all have a pained look on their faces when they have to, as you do when you have to tell a friend something they don't want to hear. Come on media get stuck in we need to be rid of them as soon as possible before its to late
Why does Ross who caused such offence ON AIR possibly broke the law have a 3 month ban. Against Thatcher who made an offensive remark to some by using a word IN PRIVATE be sacked. Its just not consistent
I accept that some words and phrases are now offencive I understand that. But those same people who are offended should remember that we used these words every day in the past as just part of our normal life. Not as racist comments but just words we had grown up with. In Thatchers case I would describe her as careless not offensive in this case. Younger people who have been drilled in the equality topic should remember that older people have not, and we do not have the same horror of such words. I think we are more tolerant of such things where as today people are so easily offended.
I find it strange that everyone is insulted by Carol Thatcher using the word Golliwog. Yet
A person asking a question in the hall says that the reason foreign workers are used is because they work harder than the British, no one bats an eyelid at this racist remark and he is allowed to say it unchecked.
I just wish politicians would just run things and stop trying to run our private lives for us,
and leave local decisions to local people.
