At Least Waterstone’s Is Safe

I have been glued to Sky News for the past few days, ever since the riots kicked off in London and spread around the UK. The images and videos I’ve seen have left me absolutely disgusted but I can’t say that I am even remotely surprised at the way these scumbags are acting; the younger generation have shown a complete lack of regard for authority for years now, bolstered up by an untenable sense of entitlement. This article voices my thoughts more articulately than I am able and is well worth a read.
These children and young adults have no ambition, no goals, no will to strive for something or be somebody. The scary thing is that it is not limited to the UK. I see the same deadpan faces on the kids here in Ireland and I’m sure the situation is repeated elsewhere in Europe. Is it too late to do something about it? Seeing what is going on I can’t help but feel extremely thankful for having parents who instilled morals and a sense of discipline in me, as well as gave me the confidence to believe in myself and and my ability to achieve anything I put my mind to.

Oh yeah, and thanks mum for never letting me think of a tracksuit as daywear.

    Hehehehehe at the tracksuit comment. Yes, well done Mum! I'm very proud to have been raised by our parents too and a smack across the arse never did me any harm!

    Agreed on all counts, especially the tracksuit bit!

    And I agree with Sarah. While beating your children is bad, a slap on the bum only stung for a second but let me know that what I'd done was NOT TO HAPPEN AGAIN.
