This site has of late gone to the dogs, We no longer discuss political events at any great length, treads are allowed to descend into trolling arguments too quickly, at any one time there will be 3 or 4 treads about sf on the front page, in all honesty they are not that important. Today we have a trolling tread about volunteerism and an equally strange one about possible irish population
For this site to be relevent it must be proactive, it must challenge the government on its follies and by equal virtue congrat it on its successes. I have seen many posters of late boast of their hatred for the "left" , this i can understand to a certain extent if the same posters are refering to the handfull of well paid union executives , i carry no candle for these guys either, but the ordinary joe is suffering, not just with wage cuts but also with the lack of and withdrawal of services
In my job i drive alot, last wednesday i came apon 3 different cars at different times broken down, i regurlarly see people walking to the filling station with a jerry can, i see crowds gathered around the reduced section in tesco.
A dear friend of mine told me the other week that he cannot afford to feed both himself and his children
I am watching my friend whom i love like a brother wasting away while he tries to shield his kids from he's reality
i would like contributers on this tread to post pictures and stories that they know first hand to be accurate and true of the collapse in our society, the broken cars , the unfinished estates, the potholed roads, the dumped rubbish in woods and gateways
This is not to kick the government but to embarres them into action
