It's the daily mail.... and a tabloid paper.
Scaremongering and sensationalist.
How many good deeds were reported on the homepage?
I bet they far outweigh the bad things.... but they won't be reported.

I lost my wallet on saturday. It was handed in, with money, to the police station for me to collect.
I drove past a car accident. Not a terrible one but a bit of a smash-up and a clearly traumatised woman. I stopped to help, but 3 other motorists had already got there first and were comforting the woman and had called an ambulance
A WWF man called at my house today. When i politely declined to donate any money, he gave me a high 5 and a smile and went about his day.
Good things happen all the time. Bad things have always happened. Think Myra Hindley, Blair Peach, the Leeds fan that died when a wall fell on him at Birmingham City in the 80s.
The "British Spirit", whatever that may be, is still alive. People are, in the main, still civil and polite to each other.
It is in these papers interests to paint a picture of a decaying society. And maybe it is. But i'm with Boethius;
It's my belief that history is a wheel. 'Inconstancy is my very essence,' says the wheel. Rise up on my spokes if you like but don't complain when you're cast back down into the depths. Good times pass away, but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy, but it's also our hope. The worst of times, like the best, are always passing away."
Always passing mate. Always passing away.

Guys I hate to burst bubbles, although appreciated there is still tangible threads of civility left, even amongst the youth, the actual violence fueled mostly by alcohol in town's and city's across the UK and Ireland is horrific... and the women are as bad as the men here.
I've seen brawls in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, London, Birmingham, Warrington, Wigan, St Helens, Bangor, Cardiff... the list goes on. This isn't sensationalized imo - pick up any of these area's 'local' papers and I guarantee there's the murder of someone on a night out somewhere in the first few pages almost, if not, every week.
My generation went through this 10 years ago... and from what I can see it IS getting worse. Gangs of kids stone, beat and rob the elderly; and I think for the most part this is due to the availability of and peer pressure to partake in alcohol and drugs. The 'CHAV' culture (Council Housed And Violent!!) is becoming the norm in suburban Britain as inner cities are becoming (moreso) gang culture.
I genuinely wish it was sensationalized - but Britain just ain't what it used to be. And sadly it's the majority who take part.

Like i say i think its being caused by mobile phone radiation. It is effecting people in more ways than they know. They are just lacking any morals or judgements for right and wrong.
