WTF happened to my country


Recommended Posts

Stumbled across this video earlier of the town I grew up in and lived in until 2000. 

It looks like a different world to now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v1-mT9afP4 - now of course it was shot to show only the good things but still. 

We really have been to tolerant of politicians and political parties

Thank you so much for posting that @ad_ceng

I grew up in Chesterfield, but all the family hail from Sheffield and I spent a lot of time there growing up. I have an uncle who is that much of a dee dah that you really need a translator to have a converstation with him. The film "Threads" had a massive impact on me, I think mostly because it was set there.

I was there not long ago, and it is sad to see what has become of it.

You are right of course, how did we let things get to this state? I'm really struggling to comprehend what is going on especially at the moment in this country. It feels lke half the population has wet the bed.

What years that - mid to lates 70s.

This was municipal spin as the socio economic cracks were appearing even then, as Northern manufacturing areas were stuck in low value operations.

What followed were gormless Marxist council and 40 years of incentivising scum by paying more benefits, shithole migration, which ended up with being Roma hotspot, resulting in even Comrade Blunkett oubing the whole - bennies n migrant are great bullshit.

The amount to which a previously decent place in the UK has been turned into toilet is inversely proportional to the size of the conurbation for the simple reason that immigrants like urban living.

Lunatic planning permission for swathes of new houses aside smaller towns and villages are much as they were; though coffee shops have replaced Woolworths.

Is that the one after a nuclear winter that was on BBC, yes it had massive impact on me too. I was going through a very unhappy depressed period and it really struck home.  Not watched it since but suspect it was too dark to have been just stuck on TV.

I'd guess about 1967. Big clue is hair is still short for men and definitely not 70s fashion.

Yesterday I had to leave my shoes in at the shoe menders.

To do that, I walk through an area that, 15 years ago, used be nice, used to be part of the 'university area' kind of thing.

Now as I walk through it, it's basically full of drug addict chavs off their face on something, and Turkish migrants who as far as I can see are running businesses that in many cases look to me like money laundering fronts. Cafes, mobile phone repair shops ect...that have been there for years yet never seem to have any customers (I know because I used to pass by them at least twice a day as they were on my way to work). How do they pay the bills and wages of the staff without any visible customers? Something odd is going on, but the police don't give a shit. If someone can prove me wrong on what I suspect here, I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

What used to be a lovely big Post Office on the corner is now the "Istanbul Market".

As I walked through the street in question I saw yet another commercial premesis being renovated, being made into a new 'cafe' with a Turkish sounding name. I'll take a photo when I pass through later in the week to get the name, but my point is we're in the middle of a lockdown that has no sign of ending - is this the economic environment where you'd set up a new cafe? What money is being used to fund this? A new cafe in an economy where people aren't allowed to go into cafe's?

in Istanbul there used to be a street where wives of men who had debts would sell themselves in brothels to help repay the debt, any sign of that being set up yet ?

That's not the case.

I said, with information gleaned from here, to someone whose sister is in the police that the Turkish barber was purely there to launder drug money.

The answer was that they know but don't have the resources to deal with all of them owing to it being difficult to put together a case that the CPS will take forwards.

In a way I see their point; there isn't much value from closing down one if the dealers can simply launder their money elsewhere. It requires a concerted national effort which will bring howls of "persecution" from the Turkish "community" in Britain.

I understand that, but it's gotten to the point where it's so incredibly in your face as to be extremely insulting.

We're talking an entire street in a fairly central area of a capital city here. Anyone who isn't completely cucked can see what's going on.

It just leads to more resentment towards the state from my point of view that they're letting it happen, and will make more people into "fuck the state and legally pay as little tax as possible" types.

Or as I would describe them: genuinely woke.

Unlike the empty virtue signallers who are about as woke as Rip Van Winkle.

Spot on.

Heartbreaking stuff - I remember it being nice 20 years ago when I was a student.

I've seen it decline in real time walking up and down it twice a day for the last decade.

Boot menders is still great though.

It was pretty rough late 80’s but was gentrified late 90’s with lots of coffee shops and restaurants

Guess it didn’t stick when the druggies and unskilled migrants washed up there. 
 

I have only been in Belfast once since March but I imagine that area has gone downhill even more
