Just catching up on this thread and got this far before I felt I had to reply.

All I see around me in the uk is thick scum who don't care about education
One of the roles of an educator is to inspire - clearly they are failing - or is it the inherent failings within our education system that promotes
mediocrity and conformity?
I know a couple of teachers and they care passionately about what they do and the role they should play in helping develop our children yet they
complain bitterly about the restrictions placed upon them.
The creation of a two tier system will only further marginalise and alienate whole sections of society.
And have no work ethic.
I know many youngsters who desperately want to work but the simple FACT
is that there are very few jobs about.
Starve them all to death or force them to grow crops.
Quite the one aren't we.
Karma is a bitch and I hope when it comes round you are fortunate to meet people more compassionate than you appear to be.
We are far to lenient on dense individuals who think they are owed
Unlike intellectual giants like yourself?
Seems to me like you are tarring a very large group of people with the same brush.
Instead a blaming the result maybe you should save some your anger for those who created the conditions and society that you decry.

Finally David Cameron has the balls to do what needs to be done to fix this country,
What, by turning on the most vulnerable and helpless and by increasing their hardship in his drive twoards a Victorianesque society?
The savings he will make are negligible in the grander scheme of things yet the suffering he will cause is immense, ever taken the time to ask
Total housing benefits accounts for 0.12% of total government spending and 1.35% of all welfare benefits.
Any savings made will be minimal yet the hardship caused to those affected could be immeasureable.
This country has been steadily regressing for decades, Cameron is merely accelerating the process.
if you disagree with him you have probably never met these lazy people on council estates or you'r one yourself making a career sitting on your ass
claiming every penny you can.
So all benefit claimants live on council estates?
Do all people who live on council estates scrounge off the governement and idle their lives away?
I've lived on a council estate all my life - done numerous jobs - including managing betting shops, ran doors, managed my own security firm, owned
pubs and worked my way to a relatively senior management position in a large multi-national company - and guess what - I disagree with you 100%.
Sure, there's some idle layabouts on council estates, there's some real scumbags - but same goes for every single private housing estate throughout
But there's a hell of a lot more genuine, down to earth people who just want an even break and a fair days pay for a fair days graft - but
unfortunately there's very few jobs around and those that are available pay an absolute pittance.
As I said in an earlier post this country should be looking for ways to progress and improve standards of living and quality of life but instead all
we get are regressive and repressive policies.
We also have alot of immigrants coming over here with no intention of working, again raising tax's for the working population.
I have massive issues with this and previous governments immigration policies but to apportion the blame on the immigrants themselves is eerily
remeniscent of days gone by - something that must never be repeated.
Again, perhaps you should save your anger for those who have conspired to tranform the very fabric of our society with their open door policy,
appeasement to the EU and it's dictates and their social engineering experiments.
To continue growing and developing it is essential that a certain amount of immigration is both desired and required.
But that means people who have real and tangible skills to offer and those who can contribute in a positive and progressive way in our society.
