You do know that you've doomed the entire forum by starting this thread, right? Prepare for some real Dr Cox-esque rants over the next few weeks...
The "no-win, no-fee" lawsuit culture we've inherited from the States. "I wasn't looking where I was going whilst carrying some boiling hot tarr, and I fell down some stairs, covering myself in boiling liquid. I also refused to wear safety clothing because it isn't stylish...but I'm still going to sue my boss for my own stupidity!"
All politicians for the past...20 years are inefficent, self-serving, corrupt, useless, journalist-and-moron-fondling cretins. I often feel a lot of the world's problems would be solved if all the politicians (and ambulance-chasing scum-bag lawyers) were locked in a building and blown up.
Making legislation that has no real value other than to appease the ignorant masses who frequent "X against Y" groups (like mums.net), that takes up time, money and has no purpose.
Hugging up to journalists. An arrogant media-boss from a certain former colony should not have the power to make or break a government.
The scumbag and filthy nature of what passes for 'journalism' in the UK these days
Tony Lair. Sorry, Blair.
The frequent re-shuffling of the education system
Northerners - or people in general - who hate Thatcher simply for being Thatcher. Look at the economy before she started work - some of what she did was justified, and if she hadn't done it, we'd have been in a situation pretty similar to the one Greece has now. That said, she did do some stuff that does merit her reputation.
Civil Servants such as those at the MoD. Buying bolts for a landrover 110 chassis that can be picked up for £1.03 at a shop like Halfords, for £126 each
. Spending £67 billion over 7 years on a project to design and buy a much needed medium battle tank - only after the 7 years to have no money, and not even a proposed design
for the tank. Managing to 'lose' equipment - then deny it by saying "we haven't lost it, we just don't know where it is". And we wonder why the SDR was so harsh on the Armed Forces?
Guilt-whores. I'm sorry, yes, our country has done some pretty awful crap in the past. But It has nothing to do with me, so stop trying to make me feel guilty for (insert thing) There are some truly awful attrocities on-going right now you should be worried about!
