Perhaps we should take a 'leaf' out of their book.

It may have been just the reverse:

Group behind £50,000,000 cannabis farm jailed for 90 years. Ringleader Michael Corcoran, 51, his 13 fellow gang members, including his son Michael Jay, 28, cultivated potent strains of ‘skunk’ worth millions of pounds in specially-constructed two-storey wooden sheds in seven factories across Kent and Norfolk.

Scientific discoveries like the God particle...the Higgs Bossom.

Did you mean bosom or boson? One is pleasant to contemplate, the latter makes my head hurt.

They came from..........................................? Did they just appear from nothing? Did dark matter happen to be lurking around for no reason at all? Was there anything in existence before the big bang? Is the universe really infinite? If it is, does every possibility exist within it, like a supernatural power? If it just happened, where was all the "stuff" before? Is it scientific to believe that something can just appear out of nothing?

I know a few Vietmanese in London, rescued and taken care for in UK by 'Maggies' dictate  They were lucky not to die in the sea, they  are incredibly grateful to this day and have made a great contrubution, Business mnded, successful and highly self sufficient. Deserving Brits ??  how many are sitting on their far backsides all day long in council houses because they are too ................... lazy to work !!

How many sit on their fat backsides because the government pays them to do so? If the government paid them for a bus ticket to the south of England where the work is and a cheap rental for 3 months, then nothing, some might actually go get a job. I don't know anyone would rather live 10 in a decrepit bedsit to get a pittance for a menial job if they could get enough to live in a proper house without having to get out of bed at dawn every day.

This one, IMO, is on governments that give the dole for nothing in return, and on every voter that elected them.

Many scientist believe there is something god like about the creation.

Truly baffling..I still believe the Earth is flat.

Stupidly high income tax and continual punishment of hard working and responsible people.

Wasting that tax on the lazy, feckless and foreign

Council tax - a family of two pays the same as a family of ten in same sized house - Services are poor and over complicated (sorting rubbish into 5 types of container and only having it collected every other week.

Massive tax on fuel

The failure that is multiculturalism

The left and the whiny self entitled

Minority interest promoted ahead of the majority

Adverts and TV programs filled with unrealistic representations of minorities and "alternative" types

Crime - especially youth and gang crime

LGBTQ stuff promoted in schools and in the media - Over representation of a tiny minority.

Begging adverts on TV and unsolicited begging phone calls from charities

The same old faces on the BBC for years

The joke that is the House of Lords

The joke that is bloated civil service and local govt pensions when compared to the average working mans

The joke that is football players and celeb salaries when compared to teachers, doctors, police, ambulance and firemen's pay 

Football every 8loody day :(

Immigrants from Africa, The Middle East, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc given housing and cash ahead of more deserving Brits..

 

I could go on ... But after 30 years overseas I do my best to ignore the terrible mess that the UK has become. 

My yearly pilgrimage to visit my elderly parents just reinforces my thought that leaving was the best thing I ever did.

Don't despair.

Brexit will fix all that.

Soon the UK will be back to milk & honey & ruling the waves.

And Rees-Mogg, Boris, David will be the new Monty Python. I am particularly looking forward to their version of the Upperclass Twit of the Year sketch.
