Correct Tim, the PEOPLE, no one these days takes responsibility for their actions.

I detest the scum bankers as much as th next man, but they didn't hold a gun to these idiots heads and make them borrow 6 times there salary.

To many average dregs think they deserve a house in the fahionable part of Town, 2 cars in drive way, 3 holidays in the sun and eat in restaurants every night, all on 25k a year.

The big problem is it's the likes of me that end up bailng this scum out of trouble.

Change may be coming to America, but unless it comes to England soon we're all in the mire.

no even the goverment
borrowing more money to get out of debt.
going in to wars and then leaving to let some one else try and solve the problems.
if as much money that is spent on armaments was spent trying for peace we may get some where
but to many people making money producing arms

I know what your trying to say, but arms are only a fraction the Gross National Product of any civilised country.

As I see it we no longer make things that other Nations want to buy.This country's greatness grew out of our hard work and expertise.

We made better railway engines, better ships,cloth,china and machine parts than anyone on the planet.

This of course generated real wealth not the bogus bullshit wealth of which we have been living off for the past few decades.

This candy floss wealth, made from the service industries and dodgy bank deal was always destined to implode.

In short these scum bankers, have met their Waterloo.

That includes, your internet I presume.

If I didn't have so many silly old friends, who dont have a mobile, just land lines, then I wouldn't bother with a land line.

Everyone's ripping everyone off these days, sometimes I think I am the only honest decent bloke left.

Its always baffled me as to what they actually service? How do you service something when you sit in an office hammering away at a keyboard? "Customer service" is another buzz word of the modern generation.Its almost meaningless unless the person using it is a prostitute.

It might have something to do with the fact after years of racial intolerance,an Afro-American has reached the White House. Anyway,I don't see him as being the first coloured President - I see him as the man who not only the USA needs,but also maybe the world. I like him - after all anything is better than eight years of Dubya.

I agree that the use of the word coloured is unfortunate, but I agree with the rest of the Nimrod's sentiments. I generally quite like the things that Obama has done so far.

I can assure you the spirit of Jack Smethurst (or should I say Eddie Booth) has not been channelled into me. I say "coloured" as opposed to "black" because he is of mixed parentage. As I say,his colour is immaterial to me - the person comes first,and the person I see I have admiration for.
