MSM is too busy reporting on Megan Markle and her red headed husband to be bothered with real British news that involves 'everyday peeples.'

What she be wearing in front of the queen is more important then the soaring UK crime rate and cocaine deaths.

Wonder if her handbag to day matches her shoes? I'll have to check MSN "Breaking News"  to find out!

Agreed.

Meghan Markle is yet another disgusting blight on the UK, as if Theresa May wasn't bad enough with her sell out Bullshit to the EU and in direct treasonous contradiction to the stated will of the English people.

Whatever that immature boy who married her thinks of Markle is completely beyond me.

Markle is a disgrace to the throne because she lacks any class, sophistication or elegance. She is a tempest in a teapot and a bull in a china closet.

Meghan Markle is a dramatic horrible counterpoint to the beauty, elegance, class, and sophistication of the one of a kind Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

If Kate Middelton is a beautiful diamond (which she is) by her husband's side, Meghan Markle is a cold lump of black coal on the red headed boy's asshole.

Talking to a friend of the family who teaches, he reckoned that around 10% of the kids families were into drugs.

Make that nationwide and our degenerate decline isn't going to end well, toss in a few million muslims, lots of race-relations and the UK doesn't look a great place to invest in.

Last point to add, I pay for the NHS - for my healthcare supposedly, these crackheads also effectively share my health insurance with me often behind them in treatment priority.

Isn't socialism wonderful...

It's both, from what I understand.

Apparently, under Obamacare, patients can 'rate' doctors. If doctors don't come up with the happy pills, bad ratings follow, which somehow screws with how they get "paid" [sic]. Then, when the drug-seeking behavior becomes so obvious that the docs have solid ground to cut off the happy pills, the drug addict finds the jolly Mexican cartels standing by, ready to keep the spice flowing.

I worked as an undergraduate university tutor for 7 years in a very leftist university (Aren’t they all?)

The most common drugs for studying were speed and later Modafinil. For recreational use: alcohol, weed, mdma, ketamine and speed were the most popular with occasional cocaine and crack cocaine use.

I quit my job 2 years ago and went to visit my former co-workers last week. All the toilets in the university are now gender neutral. I was just about to comment on this, when my co-worker said "I know your opinion on this and I don't like it" lol. He didn't like the next question when I asked him where his safe space was. Anyway, I'm glad I left. Everyone left is too socialist and progressive for my liking. What a fucked up place.

it was always very much a drug culture (it's hard to live in such an unfriendly, psychopathic, dishonest environment without escaping)  - I remember reading international surveys about teenagers from many countries around the world (used to be published every year in the Guardian)  This was a decade ago. - British kids were always the worst pretty much - most drugs, most STDs, the earliest sex, most bullying etc...all the worst indicators plus they rated the worst in how well they got on with each other. A degenerate country ruled by psychopaths - that's what it has always been

An apt description of what the UK has morphed to was penned by Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum:

"Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by producing nothing--when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you--when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice--you may know that your society is doomed."

From "Atlas Shrugged"
Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum (otherwise known as Ayn Rand)

Eat enough morning glory seeds, and you can have a day off your tits, go to sleep for eight hours (if you can, I'm gifted in that area) and get up for another day off your tits. The one time I tried acid it was fairly tame by comparison.. "Heavenly blue" variety are reputed to contain the largest amouts of naturally made Lysergic Acid.

All the varieties I tried worked well enough..

All for free (or the cost of five packets of morning glory seeds form a shop, but ya got to wash them really, really well first). Expect a stomach-ache that soon passes.

"Changa" is the one though. Some plants contain DMT, and the "changa" I was priviledged to smoke one time was awesome. Should be made compulsory as a right of passage into proper adulthood, and taken around 25 to 35 years of age I reckon...

A friend of mine has a friend in britain that works for a finance company(or the like).Doing cocaine is the next level of drinking 5 cups of coffee in ordr to cope...

 

Or maybe britain is a rich country and people have fun...

For some reason, an awful lot of people I know are getting into Cocaine in a big way, all with a worryingly nonchalant attitude towards it. It's the same for some of my friends, they too know a lot of people hitting it very hard... There's fuckery-a-foot!

These are generations that have been practically pickling themselves, then they got bored with alcohol. There's no way they could do that if they settled down properly and had a family. Probably they can't, the economy and the way things are stacked doesn't support it anymore anyway.

They think they will be ok, it's no biggie.. The other people are "less strong" so it'll be fine. They all individually think this.
