    Money continues to flow to this woman who is a convicted drug smuggler.
    Rewarded for being a failure to society. How typical of the uk!

    IMO life is about country, culture, family, friends, community and groups. My research over years hasn’t changed my opinion.
    I think you often often post interesting stuff. No reason to stop just because you experience disagreement.
    I’m sorry if you currently feel alienated but I often feel alienated too in all the aspects in my first sentence. Sometimes I feel alienated from threads on Dosbods.
    It’s just how life is and we all have to deal with it.

    I’m six years into choosing to opt out as much as possible working for low pay and paying into a fucked up system.
    Granted I’m lucky because no rent or mortgage, some down sizing funds plus a small pension and son at home paying reasonable digs.I’m on a low income but walk a lot, it’s free. I meet lots of folk to chat to but very guarded about who I make arrangements with.
    I’ve recently dumped a health service employee “friend” due to her continual superiority personality and looking down on me attitude.
    Recently got involved with a local dog walkers group along with a longer term dog walking pal. We’re all going for coffee next Saturday. So far they’re nice and I’m getting Dosbods type conversations from some of them but I have no qualms these days about dumping people who I have nothing in common with.

    Someone's got to offer a counter perspective otherwise this place descends into little more than a group rant.
    Having had a little time to reflect, and having an absolute cunt of a day at work, I am now more inclined to let her rot.
    Maybe let the kid in, into adoption but leave her there.

    I admire the posters romanticism too. 
    My opinion is that the ongoing pursuit of globalisation and multiculturalist policy will lead to severe social unrest.
    I have no objection to self supporting folk moving around the world for work, retirement or pleasure as long as they don’t try to change the prevailing culture of where they choose to go.
    The problem is though, IMO, that Europe but particularly the uk is allowing free loaders to enter.
    It will all end in disaster, again IMO. 
    It’s very well known in research and looking to history that different cultures and groups usually clash and it creates social problems plus war.

    They are falling out of fashion, owner cashed a load of shares in at the peak, supposedly to buy a warehouse, guess he knew the figures.
    The others (directors) knew when to buy as well nudge, nudge.

    The business is wallowing and this is cheap but shit publicity.

    The current Mrs O has to buy crap clothes from these sites as the are the only places that do a real size 4. All the mainstream retailers scale up their sizing to placate the larger ladies.

    I’m hearing it almost daily in a rural area...despair....from a wide variety of working and retired people....about the state of the uk. My mid twenties daughter isn’t in despair but can’t see how she can buy her own home. 
    Peopke are also saying, who can I vote for? The next general election will be interesting!

    Boohoo have a stake in the pretty little thing brand. I regularly see articles on daily mail complaining about the sizing, fit etc of pretty little thing clothing.
    Doesn't blight my life what boohoo sell because I’ve never bought any of their crap.
    I buy a lot of second hand wool clothing from charity shops and eBay.
    Boohoo, Primark etc will have their time getting sales in the throwaway present culture but they’ll ultimately fail IMO as the younger generations reject them. I know my daughter and her friends are vintage fair fans because they can buy cheap, quality clothing and individual type clothing that they know will last for more than a few washes!

    Boohoo are popular because they are cheap but that means they are using UK based workers who can be paid under £3.50 an hour because they have to compete with sweatshops in Bangladesh.
    So their worst exploitation is not that of sheep who are free to roam pastures but of its workers in its supply chain working in dark satanic mills in the arse end of Britain.
    If Boohoo was forced to actually be ethical it would rapidly go bankrupt as its punters only really care about the price.
    So Boohoo and its customers are both hypocrites.
    This is the world we live in soundbites, fake ethics and spiv retailers.

    I suspect we are at the start of a trend of millions simply opting out - doing the minimum and no more.
    Myself I am having a fundamental re-evaluation of what I do in our society and with whom I associate.

    The world gets even more insane!
    Wool being demonised now. WTF? 
    Prepare for being denigrated for wearing a warm wool coat, cardigan or jumper. Ads coming soon showing awful people wearing wool clothing splattered in blood? I despair of the modern world!
