Britain has no future, no jobs, no money and no hope

102 comments  Add a comment

Well the script-writer of Life in Britain, that dreadful soap-opera, has decided to write down or out the current cast, economically to begin with, and truly and wholly later on.  This show is surely in its last episodes.

Face it, you are all third-rate as citizens, and will be treated as such.  What was supposed to be a true meritocracy has turned into a State run by Mephistopheles.  All you Dr Fausti out there who sold your souls to the Devil [Mrs Thatcher] 24 years ago on the promises of monetarism, that Devil has now come to collect his/her own.

Consider yourself lucky to have a job...

Consider yourself lucky to have a job to commute to, even with rail journeys at £1200 per year?  Well I don't.  My job has been rubbed out, downgraded, and dumbed-down.  I no longer enjoy working anymore anyway.  The interests I had at the start have all since been removed by remote, accountant managers and masters who seek only ridiculously measured and meaningless goals, and who have turned the job into a mental, tortuous, grueling nothing.

A fish market... Governments and corporations are now like corrupt religions.  We are all awaiting a dissolution of the Monastery.  Who will rid us of these troublesome priests?  Off with their heads: they are all traitors to the cause.

In 50 years from now the Oligarch of Hong Kong will buy up this land lock-stock and barrel to use as a waste dump for toxic materials.

As for the rest of Europe, it will put up an ecological barrier to separate their green and pleasant lands from this barren, sterile wilderness.  That's the future in store for GREAT Britain!

Crowds turn out to see Queen and other royals at Sandringham service.

Some of these royalist bum licking fanatics actually started to queue at four in the morning just in the hope that one of the free loaders would notice them and a picture could be taken to show their like wise royalist bum lickers.

Car industry warns of return to 'dark days' as manufacturing falls again

The car industry, new and used, have had it all their own way for decades. Black book traders, hidden small print and obscure word of mouth to catch the punters that are obsessed with a new shiney toy to pose in. Even now, a used car dealer would rather open a vein than be completly honest about held stock. If dealers/ manufacturing wish to survive they will have to rethink their policies or they will go under in ever increasing numbers. The days of surplus funds are all gone, people are keeping cars a great deal longer.

Bulldog, you are an insult to intelligence. Stop watching moronic sensationalist rubbish that leads you to blunt, and woefully misguided notions. Stick to picture books...

Yeah all jobs are going to India and China because Brits are just too expensive to hire. Let me paint a picture of this country in the future for you: nobody has a job; everyone gets up in the morning and walks his/her dogs; bins are not collected for weeks; rubbish is everywhere; gangs and chavs roam the streets.

I'm not sure about working in Canada but Australia is a good place to go - lots of jobs, much better pay and AUD is a strong currency. Weather is much better, too!

I am a Canadian citizen living in the UK since the 1960s, brought here by my English mother following her divorce in Canada. I have thought of going to live in Canada but it helps enormously if you have contacts there to help you get a foothold. Also, I've no funds so I don't think turning up in a new country with nothing is sensible. I did take to looking for jobs in British Columbia a while back. I actually applied for a position in Parks & Gardens, but you know what? I think they thought my application from Britain was a joke!

I also think the grass always looks greener elsewhere. I suppose if somehow I could cultivate a friend or two across the water it would help...

ahforfoulkessake, I completely agree with you. However, you are younger than me and I strongly suggest that your relative youth does not preclude you from your own advice.

Get out whilst you can!

I am a youngish man of 28 and I remember seeing a documentary on the 1970s on bbc4 last year or the year before with that old PM Callaghan saying that if he were a young man he would emigrate.
I agree that it's even more true today but would you get a politician, one who can actually see the gulf between opportunities for those born well-off and the rest of us, actually admit it in public?
I somehow doubt it.
My advice to anyone who is younger than me or wishes to change careers is this:
go to college, learn a trade and get your certs and then go to Canada.
Many of my brother-in-law's friends from Ireland have done so.

Well yours is a pretty sharp gripe and quite a claim, too. But I agree with you. This country is DOOMED! Let me paint a picture od this country's future for you: nobody has a job; everyone goes out walking dogs; parks are overgrown; dog poo is everywhere on the streets; bins are full no collection; rubbish is everywhere.
