I suspect that such a system did not grow overnight, Roy. Nor will you fix it overnight.

Might be a good time to start, however. You do have an election coming up soon, don't you?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

We have, thank God! No Min, it didn't occur over night but became uncontrollable under the present admin.
Our health service is the biggest employer in Europe and employs more staff than the Chinese army!
Productivity has fallen 25 per cent under this mob and now, directly or indirectly one in four or five wage earners is employed by the government and so represent a negative effect on tax revenues.
In addition government employees have vastly better pension rights than those in the private sector, which is causing resentment.
Even some ministers are now beginning to understand that this is not a sustainable scenario.
The problem is they can't find a way out of the mess they created.
Such is the depressive effect on people's ambition that sometime ago an ex school boy successfully sued his school for failing to teach him how to claim welfare!
So far have our education standards fallen that the government depts are employing people to teach their staff punctuation and grammar! This after eleven years of education! Even teachers are having to be taught this as their teachers failed to teach them!
Great Britain my foot!

Roy.

You don't know the half of it Min.
Blair decided that 50 percent of school leavers should go to university, but as the system, or the students weren't up to it they made the exams easier and broadened the curriculum.
Now 97 percent of school leavers are passing their exams!
One student, faced with a question he couldn't answer wrote 'F--k off!' the answer was marked and points awarded for correct spelling and expressive use of language!
A group of failed student recent appealed their inability to answer the question ' was the Nazi regime despotic?' apparently they did not know what despotic meant.
You can now get a degree in soap operas and media studies, watching TV and reading the press!
They are even issuing certificates for washing your hands or using public transport.
I kid you not!

Your personal experience mirrors my own and what you say about the horse is being mirrored here as well. Employers say they prefer to hire immigrants 'cos they work harder and are better educated.
Can't argue with that.
Blair's Britain!

We attained the same thing without Blair.

This is not a problem to blame on one man.

In the 1990's Rudy Giuliani as mayor of NY claimed credit for sharply decreased crime stats. I wondered if he was also mayor of Baltimore, Detroit and San Francisco at the same time as crime stats dropped all across the country.
I'm sure the sociologists will one day study the issue (as well as yours) and write a long boring report on the matter.

“They’re the ones also promoting the idea that a violent revolution might be necessary to "take back the country."”

I am not suggesting it is the way to go now, but it was once.

In their strong concern over an overreaching, bloated, unresponsive central government the men that started this country carried their guns to taverns and made their plans.

The very foundations of the U.S. are tied in closely with guns and alcohol.
One of the tipping points was when the English General in Boston purposed confiscating all civilian owned guns.
