Online "debates"? Pshaw! In my day we settled political differences over the garden fence with decent, manly fisticuffs! Jackets off, shirtsleeves rolled up, a bit of the old three four as Lefty Lemsip used to teach us in barracks after lights out. We didn't have to make do with so-called computers, not like today's Gone Soft Britain!

as am former Navy man
but do you know it was a right royal caper similar to the time I used turps to wipe nigger-brown boot polish from corpse of decease Big Small Notorious I thought it were Cyril Smith and could only use handy John Collier two-piece worsted grey ensemble very handy for hiding scars caused by cross of iron.

Credit crunch? Brown's socialist hellions have plunged us headlong to disaster, together with the loony left BBC, they have encouraged us to borrow beyond our means, in order to afford the mortgages on our rent-to-buy properties which they have forced us to rent out, 12 to room, to the Lithuanian vegetable pickers that they and the Bolshevik EU encouraged to come and work in the first place!

In our day vicars' kids were brought up to believe in the Word of God with punishment by whipping and lots of it if they strayed from the path of righteousness (society was fortified for the better by whips). Now look what happens in Blair's Broken Britain; the sons of Archbishops by Holy Ordinance of Our Lord God Whose Father Alive In Heaven Amen are PERVERTED into becoming RAP SCALLIONS.
In the old days we would have shipped "Tim" Westwood to the colonies and made him row all the way non-stop (and whip him if he stopped, or whip him anyway just to remind him of the punishment if he stopped) - is "Dizzy Whiley" truly what So Brave Lord Nelson died fighting for?

In my day telephones were for keeping in touch with your loved ones. Nowadays you can dial up illegal pornography on the you-tube, or dial up a sex offender for ungainly sinful pleasures of the flesh, but you can't even make a telephone call! Call me old-fashioned for wanting to speak to my dear husband on the telephone! Or is that rendered illegal now? Perhaps I should be dialling up a lethal concoction of drugs and visiting a rage party instead! Heavens above.

When did it become unacceptable to own a comfortable high-set car? I can't even drive the Ford Territory through the shops at Croydon without some drug-addled hippie calling me selfish. Last week at the school, a young tearaway lass said my car was 'a menace'! And to think we worked hard to earn a safe vehicle. If all the pinko hippies got a job and purchased large sturdy automobiles, the world would be a better place.

You knew where you were when it used to be "Sir" and "Madam" and "Mr Smythe" and "Mrs Green" and bowing and curtseying, and now you are expected to call everyone Shaz and Myleene and you don't even know if you are addressing a man, a woman, or even one of those Polacks or coloureds throwing your first name around like a dark-skinned youth in a knife-crammed designer tracksuit regurgitating the semi-digested tatters of society into the gutter after his thirtieth alcopop of the morning on the bus to the Job Centre, too much of a wastrel even to do the jobs he has stolen from us, as the school he burnt down wrote him a note excusing him from work in favour of burgling houses to pay for crack and other made-up mental disorders
