Speakers Corner CommentsHi all, as a child of the fifties ( 1953 ) I only really from the mid Sixties became aware of the world around me namely in all my life GREAT BRITAIN ! Is it just me ? or has this country of mine gone completely off kilter ? What's this old guy ranting on about ? I grew up and lived in my formative years with the arrival of good music ( athe Beatles ) Mersey sound,Flower power ! heavy Rock Glam Rock and above all,despite all of that, as little respect ( yes through in part by punishment at home sometimes,at school,even once stoped and told to push my bike home without lights on a dark 60's night ) BUT a I cared about the world I was living in ! Theses days is seems to this one old guy,carer to his long time disabled wife,retired in name only,my days filled ( always 18 hour ones ) though my local SS say if we gave them all of our income she could have two half hours a day ! That no one out there in our society gives a damn ! They are looking after number one,from the MP,s shafting the voters,down to the out for whatever they can get individual,s calling at your door,ringing your phone,scamming you online,plus worse just plain mugging you on street corners,as the top fat cats have removed half the bloody police to line their own pockets ! Right,rant over,it itjust me ? Or is this really the world that boy growing up in the 60,s imagined it would be ? Man living on the moon and beyond,diseases ereadicated,everyone looked after in their ill health and old age ! Or the couldn't care ,put me first attitude that SEEMS to excite in my once bright future. A tired carer,now behind with his caring role,with not much hope for his or anyone of his age and generation!
