I stole that BB8 guide - it said "you need it and it's free", so I took it and left the Heat magazine behind at the newsagents.

Then I mugged a pensioner, filmed 'im rolling around on the pavement, and posted it on YouTube. Then I went back to Eton.

You could put one foot in front of the other repeatedly to get to a location of your choice. These days you can't walk down the bloody street.

A knife. One times this kid can't remember his name brought a knife to school. We all of us just stared at it. Then we looked at the kid.

i remember when you would stop in the street, on your way to the market, and find yourself in immersed in hour-long conversations. now it's just an awkward smile, a pained nod.

Society has gone mad with its own sense of self importance, and taken a high jump from the nearest cliff. Now its corpse lies rotting in a ditch, having been stripped for clothes and parts by Eastern European tramps.

Society can regularly be seen flailing around the streets late at night, looking for another party.

30 years ago society was an altar boy with a side parting. It was a great time to be alive!

you can't even be sure of your own sexuality anymore. society has become an endless freddie mercury sex tape, stuck in the broken video recorder that passes for real values nowadays.

All this million channel cable TV and internet and your wireless phone from that disgusting bloke who is that older woman's toyboy in them adverts, when I was a lad we didn't even have TV.

when i was younger, there was no such thing as irony, and if there was, no decent person had ever heard of it. now--its irony in the shower, irony for breakfast, irony in your afternoon nap. irony has literally kidnapped everything good and decent and tied it to a chair and literally beaten it.

nowadays if angelina jolie is in the gutter, society gets in too. if she climbs out of the gutter, it stands up and dusts itself off. it used to be there were consistent ideas, about culture, art, thought. now we just dig our graves alongside the spectres of society's future, and leave the past to the likes of Rita Hayworth.

The Manchester United hero was visiting his old school, the Moorside High School in Swinton to cut the ribbon on their new £35million building before sharing some views on the kids of today.

The 39-year-old player-coach hopes the school's new state-of-the-art sporting facitlities will encourage more youngsters to pick-up more sports instead of computer games.

He said: 'When I was at school we had great PE teachers and pupils who loved sports.

'I was encouraged when I was at school and pupils should be even more encouraged with facilities like these.

'Today children have their PlayStations and computers but it is good to exercise.'

1 month passes...

As I was walking out of Charing Cross Underground into the little linear path nearby, which noble Lords will know, there was a young adult urinating quite openly against the gates leading into the park. I made the remark, "That's going to leave a nasty smell.", and he said, "Fuck you.". I am sorry to use the word in this House, but it happens to be the commonest single word in the vocabulary of that age group, I fear. That was his response. I believe that he said it, first, out of shock that anyone should even take note of the act and, secondly, out of a kind of indignation that anyone should interfere with what he undoubtedly considered to be a perfectly reasonable and proper act.

I know quite a few people from the forest of Dean who might dispute that but it's possible they in fact were the sum of yob culture in the area at the time

They’re playing a Simply Red record on Radio 2 right now which rips off “I Can’t Go For That” by Hall and Oates.

It used to be you had proper, original songs being played on Pete Murray’s Open House like “Say No Go.”

It’s all Neil Armstrong’s fault.

Now, you hardly ever see a teenage goth. Even the ones hanging out around in Camden Lock, amid a sea of Che Guevara T-shirts, seem to lack commitment. All the men in east London look like they're on the run from an Edwardian circus; the women are walking thigh gaps. Manchester is full of Noel Gallagher haircuts; Liverpool is orange.

When I lived in Paris eight years ago, rock band the Libertines seemed like the most exciting thing in music, and every French teenager wanted to move to London. Eurostar ads emphasised the UK's counter-cultural draw. What would attract them now, when every song is a sample, all films are remakes, and, as Stewart Lee has said, all the comedians are Russells?
