Why i think the UK is f*cked

12 05 2010

OK so get ready for a massive rant.

To be honest i’m not happy that Cameron is in, but i’m not sad to see the back of Brown. The difference between the two men is stark but i think i’m more on the side of Brown. But that brings me to my point – i think most people are just uninspired in general by our choice of leaders. THey just don’t care. The Uk is in decline and nobody has any idea what to do.

I think this is down to a few items:
1. Over the last 20 years the manufacturing industry the UK was once a world leader in has slowly been chipped away. FIrst it was Coal, then steel, then crap plastic toys and now heavy engineering, automotive and high tech is going. Why? The Chinese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese can do it cheaper. And better. The companies are based in the west but nothing is made there. It is made in China. So basically the companies in the UK are admin centres and sales people. We just don’t have the expertise to carry out these tasks anymore. The industry we do have is shit. i’ve seen it with my own eyes here in Doha. We are buying goods from the UK which are of lower quality than those from China. So please don’t think we are making higher quality goods that them to compete. we are not because the expertise is gone. China can provide what we need. The Uk is unable to.

2. So one of the big problems in the UK is “Dole dodging chavs” according to the Daily Facist. OK so i made up that quote but you get the idea. Surely the solution is to stop giving these people benefits to “Make them get off their arses and work”. Wrong. This is why – there are no jobs. Our population grew to a level that was sustainable with mass employment in industry. Which is now in China. The population now can’t find work because there is no work. This leads individuals to depression and feelings of lack of self worth. This can lead to drug problems and the associated crime. But more importantly it creates a massive underclass of people trapped in poverty.

3. 40% of people go to Uni? Why? what for? to get in debt and get a crap job afterwards? i was lucky – i got a good job but there are people going to institutions that are barely universities and coming out with useless degrees. Oh wait – thats because there is nothing else to do because there are no jobs. There are a set of very good graduate jobs that people in the top Unis will get. There rest are looking at doing jobs they could have got with only A levels. I’m 100% for social mobility but not false social mobilty we seem to have here.
5. Surely we can make more people do apprentice ships? OK but what are these people going to do after they finish? Work in a factory… oh wait a minute.

This brings me back to my opening paragraph. What is any party going to do to stop this decline? Maybe it’s too late. I may be wrong about all this but i have seen no ideas what so ever to tackle the real problems that are affecting our country. So that i think is the reason that nobody gives a shit about whether its Brown, Clegg or shiny head Cameron that is PM because they are not going to (or it is not possible) do anything to help us.
