Large numbers of police forces are planning to cut thousands of officers despite the threat of a recession-driven surge in crime and disorder. Representatives from dozens of police forces contacted by The Times last night gave a grim picture of falling numbers and “significant and painful” cuts.
Who will benefit from this? Only the feckless, the workshy, the thieves, the least productive members of our society. Those with no savings will have their mortgage paid by the tax payer, those with no inclination to work will have all their expenses paid by the tax payer.
We have a Prime Minister who can find time to make ‘several’ phone calls to support the MCann’s, Chav parents who left their children alone in a hotel room whilst they went drinking; we have a Justice Secretary who finds time to concern himself with the consumption of the marriage of that arch Chav, Jade Goody; we have a Chancellor of the Exchequer whose initial response to the financial crisis was to encourage us to buy a new plasma TV; we have a Foreign Secretary who arranges a £160,000 Gulfstream jet to bring home a terror suspect; we have a Home Secretary whose idea of being ‘more selective about those who come into the country’ is to curb the number of highly skilled foreign workers coming to Britain; we are governed by a Labour Party whose idea of PR is to support a ranting Chav in the form of the disingenuous Derek Draper to ‘present’ its image; we have a media so obsessed with Chav approval that the cocaine snorting Kate Moss is deified and Gail Trimble’s intellectual prowess vilified.
Everywhere you turn, it is the basest, the shabbiest, the unwholesome, the festering unproductive sores who are supported and celebrated.
The ‘Chav’ cult has eaten our culture alive, infantilised us, consumed our ability to think critically of serious matters, rewarded the feckless and demonised the productive. Those ‘baby boomers’ amongst us have been fortunate, we grew up in an age of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
I fear for the young of today. The social disorder we will see this summer will truly be the end of society as we knew it.
