    Fair enough. Old people are entirely to blame for both the world wars, anyway. We had nothing to do with them. If they're so keen to have a fight, let them.

    I had a flyer through from the tories a few months ago saying that they wanted to rebuild communities with pubs as social hubs and would reduce the duty on alcohol to do that. lying bastards. All politicians should die. Someone just call in an airstrike on the houses of parliament please and get a drone team to chase down and kill survivors. Thanks

    /has been playing too much frontlines.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Some article on this in The Economist recently. Most statistics point the Britain being considerably better off now than it was a mere 20 years ago.

    They also compared smoking and drinking statistics between countries. You guys smoke and drink WAYYYYY more than Americans. Something troubling you that you'd like to talk about?

    It's part of our culture and heritage to get completely shitfaced at any opportunity. And daddy didn't love us enough when we were a kid.

    Err I think you need to go back to like page 4 and see what kicked this off again.

    Hear hear. Quite surprised at statistics for France, though. Why are they giving up the booze, the bunch of big girls' blouses?

    Less smokes = less booze. Maybe. Never fear, there's still the Germans and the Czechs to give us a run for our money

    I'm quite proud of the smoking statistics for all countries mentioned. Pretty sure this was the graph they used in that article. Again I could probably go back to page 4 and click a link.

    And just because *you personally* feel the country is broken, your personal perception of the issue is irrelevant and likely largely inaccurate. If you look at things such as oh FACTS, rather than the current emotional cocktail in your head, Britain is actually doing quite well-- much better than it has in the recent past (barring the current economic disaster).

    Developing countries start smoking so much because the individuals at that point in development consider it a luxury item and they suddenly now have the disposable income to afford it. As they continue to develope smoking slowly becomes more of a burden than a luxury.

    I have to say when I saw the front cover of the economist with Broken Britain on it I nearly ripped up the whole thing.

    Glad I read it.

    Thats the problem with using old threads. I can't go back looking for the start of the most recent discussion in the mix of all sorts of pages. Well I can, but it's total waste of time. Nor can I shift through 5 pages of information so I don't give redundant opinions. Most of the time this forum only responds to the last few posts anyway.

    It actually said "Is Britain Broken?" which to me indicated it was going to answer the question fairly.

    I saw Broken Britain on the cover of my favourite news outlet and had a temper tantrum. I probably posted something in the random rant thread too.

    Should've had faith. Although they are prone to retardism too. Much like everyone.
