Good post m8. I completely agree with what you have said.
Earlier in this thread I admitted to having some respect for Mrs Thatcher ... well thats because I too do not like what we have in Scotland which is a
large swathe of the population on benefits and with no job and with no prospect of a job.
It's not because there is no work to be done. There is plently of work that's why we have a large influx of economic migrants from all sorts of
places coming here to get a job.
The jobs are here it's just that a whole bunch of Scots live in a bubble where everything is provided for them.
They have become institutionalised and even if presented with a job would not know what to do with it.
It's like when long term prisoners are let out of jail. They can't cope and actually want to go back inside because thats what they know.
It's very sad to see and we have to ask how do we break out of this miserable cycle.
I too want to see the end to the socialist state and find some way to encourage people to fend for themselves.
Only this way will they find self respect and respect for others and we can try and build community spirit again.
I've have enough of junkies and neds ruining everything for decent folk.
I blame the nanny state for this.
Once Scotland is independant I personally would like to see a swing to the right, business and enterprise encouraged in Scotland, make it worthwhile
financially for people to get off benefits and get trained up to do something useful.
With the current system we have that will never work becuase all we get from labour is a continuation of the same old story keeping people entrapped
in poverty where they think the Labour Party are going to save them. But after 60 years of lies from Labour the people are still in the gutter.
It's the London based Labour Party that has used Scotland and the North of England to keep them in a job. They have no reason to lift people up
because they fear that in doing so they might lose their support.
Also the Labour idea of creating non jobs or trying to hold on to irrelevent jobs is ridiculous. A modern country needs to move with the times,
diversify, retrain, invest in order to stay ahead of the rest.
Sadly none of that happens here. The SNP have been coming up with some good ideas but there is only so much they can do whilst shackled to
