British Values

40% of schoolgirls report being coerced into sexual activity by their boyfriends, and we release a film on Valentines Day telling us that submitting to male coercion and power is sexy.

On the 5th anniversary of the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, a £5.14bn deal is agreed to show premier league football on TV. That's enough to kit out every one of the nearly 4m refugees with tents, blankets, kitchen equipment, and have some spare for food. Our government is doing its bit, usually greeted with howls of protest for spending 'our' money on foreign aid.

We all champion free speech on Twitter, but at the beating heart of Britians secular deity there's not a lot of it about.

People like me complain about things on social media but do nothing practical to fix them. Blogging is the easy short-cut to feeling righteous....

  1. I think your blog is very important as it makes you think. Couldn't agree more re the football money. It obscene. I was brought to tears after watching a nurse in Ukraine explaining ' I have no medicine left'. As a nation, we throw millions of pounds of prescription drugs away every year. What awful contrasts.
