At the End of the Day.

Dark thoughts from abroad

‘Mum bit off lover’s testicles’ announced a piece in The Sun today. I’ve often noticed in the past that tabloid subs think being a parent adds human interest to these bizarre headlines, but I’m always baffled by it. There is a clue in here as to how Newscorp thinks, viz – if you don’t have kids, you must be boring, or possible selfish. But if you bite your bloke’s nuts off, you’re a bit of a hero. As opposed to mad.

The same rule was applied to a woman in the Mail yesterday, whose agony story was headed ‘My 25-year battle with grey hair’. The Mail, as you will have noticed over the years, thinks everyone who has children out of wedlock should be neutered, but I didn’t realise until now that the paper saw fending off grey hair as successful persistence worthy of a Victoria Cross.

I can believe that the Mail would see a woman who bit off the goolies of a yob as somebody destined for a doffing at the Palace, but the grey hair thing was an oddity, even for Paul Dacre. I could be in there tomorrow on this basis: ‘My 25-year battle with brewery belly’, or ‘My 63-year battle with dickheads’. We expect something more than this under the heading ‘revelations’, don’t we? ‘My wicked, bestial sex obsession with cuddly toys’ or something similar. ‘My saucy life’ by Liam Perrins. Bah-boom.

Perhaps this means that most people are so potty now, the Mail is aiming for the exception rather than the rule. My experiences over the last few days would indeed confirm that the wombats are in the majuority; when it comes to the unsocialised British, over 90% are at best unskilled and at worst unmentionable.

Last night we dined in a restaurant where a large table had been taken up by the fecund Underclass tendency. Three blokes and their partners took up half the table; the rest contained their progeny. Two of the three women were pregnant. The adults were all so tattooed, at first I thought they might be Maoris. I’ve always quite liked Maoris who, if nothing else, are often very good at Rugby, and living on next to nothing. Not so this lot: their special talent was obviously impregnation followed by successful delivery.

Of the six children, four were boys below the age of seven. One was busy hacking at the table leg with his ‘toy’ weapon. The youngest (about two, I’d have said) was pushing and pulling violently at a high chair. I took this to mean he was in training for the jailbreaks that would inevitably be required as he became older. Of the two girls, one – aged about eleven – looked as if she was single-handedly out to prove that paedophiles are right to think pre-pubescent kids are actually incurable ravers. Joking apart, the level of sexualisation made me shudder.

So anyway, I found myself staring at the tableau before me, and thinking, ‘What are we going to do with all these wild things in twenty years time?’ Then I found myself thinking much darker thoughts to do with biting balls off. Finally, the thoughts became more selfish: ‘I won’t be around to deal with it, so to hell with it’.

I never thought I’d find the certainty of death reassuring, but when faced with the equal certainty of explosive moron reproduction, I do see it as a way out of worrying about it. This won’t do: after a certain age, if you’re fortunate enough to get by without needing a real job, life should be largely about putting stuff back in that will help society at large….and of course, those grandchildren we say we don’t want, but can’t wait to have.

The trouble is that, as the years pass, the sort of input in my head increasingly involves wishing there were more of us who’re bright, less of us who are dim, and none of us in that state of consciousness I can only describe as total intellectual darkness.

This isn’t entirely to do with the lower classes. The Prime Minister, for example, said earlier this evening (as he turned up for another go on the euroundabout) “What we need here is the broadest possible level of agreement on the best possible solution, and that’s what we’re going to be working on”.

For those who had assumed Dave’s objective was a game or two of backgammon followed by the pandemonium of anarchic disagreement, the PM’s statement must have come as a traumatic shock. Speaking for myself, however, it evoked a tired sigh. Far better to have said nothing. Just like PMs used to do in the old days. Better still would it have been, had somebody used a contraceptive four decades ago. Similar black musings apply in the case of Blair, Mandelson, Mensch, Balls, Osborne, Murdoch, van Rompuy, Barroso, Sarkozy….the list goes on and on.

Global overpopulation remains another can kicked way down the road. But for me, it’s more of a qualitative problem. A famous comic of the 1940s used to open every turn with, “The day war broke out, my wife said to me ‘What good are you?’” I increasingly feel that this question should be addressed to every Western kid at the age of, say, eleven. It should be every child’s obligatory Human Right to be asked to justify their existence. If nothing else, it would disabuse them of the notion that they are entitled to anything.

  1. We have always had this underclass. The problem is that in the old days we could send them to America or Australia as jailbirds. Failing that they could be cannon fodder for our wars. Nowadays the Aussies don’t want them and the hitech Army doesn’t need them. Result: they becomew a proportional larger share of the population and the average IQ of the country declines remorselessly.

    • There is an anti-evolutionary pincer movement consisting of Radical Feminism and Socialist Welfarism, such that the clever women are told to not reproduce because it might harm their career, and welfare money is sprayed at stupid and feckless women to encourage them to breed with as many soon-absent fathers as possible.

      When you add in the cultures that encourage many generations of in-breeding by arranged first-cousin marriage, even the dullest person can understand that it won’t take many generations for the trend of average IQ in this country to reverse its century-long climb and go into freefall.

      In fact, I read that this decline has already been detected.

  2. Well John – do you recall my note on Sweden: the vast majority of the population are well socialised, well balanced and a credit to the human race. Once you have that kind of population – you can easily afford a welfare state at the level they have. However, remember also, that they had a eugenics programme in place until the mid 1970′s – equivalent to sterilising about 600,000 of the UKs undesirables.

  3. When I read your first few paragraphs I laughed at some of your comments, but as I carried on, the sadder I became. Your restaurant experience is a dismal indictment of an ever-growing Underclass of British Society today. I posted some months ago about how I think tv programmes and adverts are full of raucous, bad mannered adults and children, who depict this despicable behaviour as the norm. If it’s not that it’s the eternal tearfests, when they plead unashamedly that their lives will be over (I wish) if they don’t have the opportunity of fame, money, adulation, by winning whatever prize is at stake. Then they trail their sorry asses off to whatever corner of oblivion they came from. It’s all totally over-produced, contrived, vacuous nonsense, which all these idiots, (some of whom are clearly mentally unstable) who seem to think this is what passes as normal, acceptable behaviour. Add to the mix a huge portion of the viewing public, who fall for it and name it as ‘entertainment’. Meantime, Mr. Cowell and his aptly named Syco production company, are making millions and millions of pounds. This enormous wealth, in turn, affords him undeserved influence while rubbing shoulders with Murdoch, Piers Moron and political power brokers in UK and USA. It’s disgraceful, and in some of my more wicked moments, I think Hitler & Goebbels ideas weren’t all bad, if only they could have spread their experiments to a much wider circle. I’ll probably get dog’s abuse, for this last remark, but I promise it’s tongue in cheek. :-)

    • Liz, I had to read your post twice, not having owned a TV for much of my life I couldn’t quite ‘relate’ to it. Reading this bit I thought you were mocking the parliaments I’ve observed here and there

      “Then they trail their sorry asses off to whatever corner of oblivion they came from.

      psst I’m ignoring your dog whistle – I’ve been know to say Lenin was right.

  4. Thought for a moment you were going to say that the Prime Minister was in a state of total intellectual darkness then I realised you meant it.

  5. ‘Mum bit off lover’s testicles’ announced a piece in The Sun today.

    Who’d have thought that the craving for a couple of gob-stoppers would ever go so far? Or could it be surreptitious praise for Mum’s dental health?

  6. “Last night we dined in a restaurant where a large table had been taken up by the fecund Underclass tendency.

Tell me you are.

    • @ Rearaz “If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you” …..Oscar Wilde If you’re a regular Slogger, Rebraz, you will realise that John wasn’t joking. Neither was he citing ‘snobbish tripe’, but making a valid sociological comment. Should you disapprove of his views then I sincerely hope for your sake that you never experience the type of families he describes to move in on either side of your home. You may then change your mind about your labelling of ‘snobbery’.

      • @Nick – alas they lost their nobility

        Maybe we can we blame Blairs reform of the HoL. Probably not its been deteriorating longer than that. I put the inflexion point at about the same time I stopped listening to most new pop/rock & jazz – mid-late ’70s.

    • Rebraz
      I report what I see. I still have four fingers on my hand, and so far I’ve avoided Room 101. Smiling at the existence of these people is the only way I can deal with this.
      Trust me, you had to be there.

  7. Succinctly put JW. The tribe in the restaurant is an all too familiar sight here. I hate the summer holidays when the British kids have finished school. Massive tribes of fat, tattooed chavs are bloody everywhere for 6 weeks. “Explosive moron reproduction” sums it up nicely. I do worry that we’re close to the tipping point where this shower are in the majority. As long as this child benefit gravy train continues they’re just going to breed like rabbits. I dread to think how they’ll react when it finally hits home that there’s no more money left, post reckoning.

    • … and swigging wine and beer in astonishing quantities. And it’s not just child benefit, it’s child tax credits, housing benefit, employment and support allowance (support section) – I could go on. We are financing this Labour-sponsored way of life for millions. The labyrinthine benefits system is in need of radical simplification, if only so that many more people can see how it is working.

  8. Wisdom comes with experience and age. What you are witnessing is the result of a totally, fu*ked up almost global, socialist movement. We weren’t a product of that (or had just touched on it) and I think it’s only now that we are realising how much damage it has done. Not intellectually, there are obviously still some very bright people about (although I question the PM and cabinets IQ), but of “liberal” attitudes.

    I’m adverse to thinking about this stuff, it’s disconcerting when you have children and grandchildren to consider. Then I remember, they are equipped to deal with this world and we are not, not really.

    What we see as sane, they see as “old fashioned” and “conservative”.

    I do think however, life would be better for everyone if they would only listen to their elders!

  9. I now have a bus pass, and travelling on the buses is quite an eye-opener on how some people behave.

    I’ve seen someone snorting drugs and another drinking alcohol. I’ve heard someone telling in a loud manner about her life in jail. I’ve seen very young children running up and down the isle, until pounced on by a swearing parent and on one occasion, a couple of policemen boarded the bus and arrested two youngsters, who had stolen a hoard of coins from a bandit machine. (The police had been tipped off by the owner of the chip shop where the boys had paid for their purchases in 2p coins).

    It’s moments like these when I depair of the up and coming generation ever being able to run this Country but then I think about how it’s being run now and shudder.

  10. An aspect of this blog which touches my mind is that JW, like many others here, have worked hard both in the UK and abroad (and paid accordingly). Yet, we find that the underclass can afford the same lifestyle!

  11. Ronnie wrote…”even the dullest person can understand that it won’t take many generations for the trend of average IQ in this country to reverse its century-long climb and go into freefall.

    This decline has been filmed, too. If you haven’t already seen it, track down a copy of the film “Idiocracy”…..it hilariously lampoons this decline.

    ps.. I reckon that John is holidaying in the Canaries…probably Playa de las Americas-Tenerife.

  12. It’s hard to believe you were in the same restaurant as the Beckhams and the Rooneys, still, could have been worse Mr and Mrs Tindall might have walked in.

    Chavtastic “manners” are no longer the exclusive domain of the under-classes.

  13. The decline in almost all the better or nicer aspects of society has been achieved over several decades and is nothing less than deliberate social engineering. It has been relentless, initially covert but now overt and very successful.

    Bearing in mind that those in power are either part of the plan or products of it and therefore part of the problem, I don’t see there being any will to change it and it is now an extreme.

    But should any backlash or fightback begin to emerge history shows us it will only be effective if it takes the form of the opposite extreme. That is where the danger lurks.

  14. Liz O’Donnell: “Add to the mix a huge portion of the viewing public, who fall for it and name it as ‘entertainment’. Meantime, Mr. Cowell and his aptly named Syco production company, are making millions and millions of pounds. This enormous wealth, in turn, affords him undeserved influence while rubbing shoulders with Murdoch, Piers Moron and political power brokers in UK and USA.”

    As above, so below. The feral rich and the feral poor are two sides of the same coin.

    This isn’t, as it never has been, a matter for “eugenics” as the problem isn’t genetic in the main, but social and cultural. As Jwoo says, this decline has been brought about over several decades now. It’s very clear that too many people in Britain now rarely think about anything but Money and personal gratification in the grossest terms. You can see that from top to bottom of our social structure.

    The poor children can’t be blamed – they are the innocent victims who are acrtually being abused.

    Where are we heading? How will it all end?

    It feels very bad!

  15. I am working class, my little start up business has ground to a halt, I tried manufacturing Celtic giftware, I lost design contracts just after the Lehmanns collapse, which led me to then lose my house. What cash I had left I put into my little business, until it all disappeared. I didn’t sign on, the previous time I did was 1980, & not for very long. I have now been forced to sign on again, does that now make me one of the feral poor ?
    I attended 9 schools because my Father’s role in the British army demanded that he move regulary. I left school at 15, briefly went to Art college, then left due to my mother leaving work after an accident. Over the years I have taught myself to become a very proficient figurative sculptor, giftware designer, graphic designer, & photographer.
    I worked in the potteries industry in S-O-T until the late 90′s. By this time a combination of incompetent management, lack of investment in design, over emphasis on marketing over quality, & the general push for out-sourcing had basically destroyed the industry. One of Harvey Jone’s ” Troubleshooter” programs featured the potteries, he gave great advice that was available for everybody, but only the firm Churchill’s who the programme featured took it up. Churchills to my knowledge is still going. Germany is a now a bigger exporter of giftware to China than the UK.
    I got on my Norman Tebbit & went to Ireland where I worked for a company as head designer for 5 years, then I went freelance working on giftware & occasional public artworks & I was doing fine until 2008. I then moved to N.I. where I am now, to do 2 public sculptures & after to try & start my business, because there is nothing else, I am 54.
    I have done everything I can to make a living, fortunately during the years of my daughters upbringing there was no problem, she has 2 kids, the girl is an angel, the boy pretty rowdy, but they are not chavs.
    So here I am signing on & being treated with derision by job centre staff. I have ended up with nothing, after working very hard all my life, going into what could well be a financial depression. The moral of the story, we are not all the same & I expect to see some of you oh so superior snobby types joining me soon, & by the way, the screw will be turned by Thatcher’s boys on benefits & where I am living you would have to be a magician to get a job.
    As for Hitler having good ideas, he didn’t let you pick, you got eugenics with mass murder, but not all jews, disabled people & homosexuals were chavs. The very rough council estate I spent some of my teenage years living in was full of moronic tough fellas who would be just right for brownshirts or SS, Give them carte blanche then lock up your daughters, be careful what you wish for.

    • Without telling you my tale of woe, Steve, were in pretty much the same boat. I now do voluntary work teaching English to foreign students and basic computing to over 50′s. No financial gain but at least it makes me feel productive and my students value me. Good luck and a good post.

      • @Mike, Thanks & good luck to you too, good & bad everywhere. I remember an example of the perfect middle classes behavior when I was briefly involved with the takeover of Aynsley China by Belleek china. Aynsley had gotten rid of nearly all the chavs, hoi poloi, plebs, manual workers etc but still had a massive management doing nothing, & still driving around in approx. 80 company cars. I could write a book about useless overpaid idiots behind desks.

      • @Mike. I used to do voluntary art class type stuff with downs-syndrome kids, thinking of doing it again, but i think I will now have to pay to prove I’m not a pervert. I had better hurry & save my pennies before the master race has them all shot.
