I’m getting old. I must be. All I see around me is heartache and pain. Idiots and morons.
Does no one care anymore?
When I was a lad we cared. We cared about music and girls… we cared about politics and fashion… we cared about life and death… we cared about freedom and justice… we simply cared.
Today… No one cares.
We don’t care about the environment. At least, most of us don’t. There are a few overbearing pop stars (like Sting) that bleat on about saving the planet while schlepping from continent to continent by their own private jet (using fossil fuel and emitting CO2 gasses like a madman). Other than these wannabees, no one ‘really’ cares.
We don’t care about an over populated world. We have children younger and live longer. Teen can’t spell condoms, let alone use them. We have the likes of Jeremy Kyle blaring on about sticking ‘something on the end of it’ and making a living from talking to these horny juveniles as though they care. They don’t. Neither do we. What’s it matter to the average Britain if some snotty-nosed brat is the father, or the other five possibles? I ask you, do you care? Really?
We don’t care about education. Even those sodding degenerates that repose to be students don’t really care about education. They just want to drink cheep larger and loaf about, saying pretentious crap like ‘in my opinion’ – then quoting some facile trollop’s entry in an outdated tome, they haven’t even bothered to read properly. “In my opinion, Einstein got it right hen he said, Go Go!” Bollocks. Total crap. They don’t have the experience to have an opinion. What does someone know that’s just got out of nappies? Bugger all.

Education is about learning, it’s about informing. It’s not about telling the student which bit of their learning will be on the test. We learn to discover, not to be marked on it. The pen-pushers have taken over our schools, colleges, and uni’s – they want results, not education. It’s all about pass rates, not whether Billy understands how algebra works – A+B=C (or A Boy is a Child, as we used to say) makes not the slightest sense to the average pleb.
We don’t care about politics either. Or the country wouldn’t have voted in a load of Tory twits and wet wallies from the Lib Dems. Nick Clegg promised to be better then he’s being, and the country swallowed it! If we were fishes we’d be wrapped in paper and smothered in salt and vinegar. This was once a great nation. Now we’re a third-world nation, with too many children living in poverty and squalor. Half the country’s unemployed, most of the rest’s under-employed and under-paid. What’s this world coming too?
Now tell me I’m wrong? Go on, surprise me if you dare. Tell me I’m wrong?
