Where will it end

Morning folks...after a weekend of no crafting...it's been hard to get back into the groove...I just haven't been in the mood...like millions of other decent folks in this country I've been overwhelmed by the mindless violence and utter disrespect for people and property shown by a bunch of mindless morons.  It beggars belief how it was allowed to escalate to the stage that people have lost their lives..homes and businesses... it should have been nipped in the bud at the first sign of trouble...drafting in the Army with water cannons and rubber bullets to take control back but as usual our Government sat on the fence with their softly softly approach.  I would like to think that they will now step up to the plate and deal with these louts in the harshest possible way and in the case of a minor make their shameful  "poor excuse for a" parent take responsibility for their children's actions but time will tell...I have a sneaky feeling they will be setting up an inquiry as we speak....wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers' money and what do you bet the do-gooders will be out in force along with the Human Rights Brigade.  And the Government can hardly get all high and mighty about morals when they are the ones that created this "GIMME"  greed driven society...you don't need to get a job...the State will provide world we live in by turning a blind eye to the Fat Cats...the Bankers' bonuses and of course their own finger dipping in the till of taxpayers' money...aka MP's expenses.  The police aren't entirely blameless either in helping to create this yobbery society...how many innocent homeowners have been arrested just trying to defend their homes and loved ones from a thieving scumbag...not to mention the fact that they tolerate from a distance all the drunken louts who turn our city centres into no-go areas every Saturday night. It's high time we had a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY in this country for all these low-life scumbags who make ordinary peoples' lives a misery. Violence will never be solved with violence but right this minute I would be sorely tempted to let the Army loose for some target practice.
Rant over and in the mood or not...there's a list of stuff to do on the crafty list...nothing I can share with you yet....only some sneaky peeks of some cards for my class at The Papeterie on the 27th of this month...


Hopefully some more playtime with Hero Arts Christmas will get me back in the crafting mood. Remember you only have until midnight tonight to win the Shadow Box Christmas Kit
Catch up with you all tomorrow

Thanks for making your rant public Kath - I couldn't agree more! The army should have been called in as soon as the first London riot got out of control. Mary G x

Debbie said...

Hi Kath...I'm with you 100% on this...I couldn't have put it better myself. By the way the sneaky peeks look very interesting...can't wait to see them in all their glory.

Claire said...

Well said... I totally agree... but I also think rubber bullets should be swapped with real.. as long as it is the scum there shooting and not the innocent
Sneaky peaks look very good..will be back to see the results.

Morning Kath, I agree with you 100% as well. Like you said they should have called the army in after day one. I blame the press as well. My first words when it came on the radio that police were being sent to London from Manchester, were." Thats it , it will be riots in Manchester tonight." They are all scum. Have a good day. Hugs x ChrisB

WELL SAID! Martial Law should have been declared immediately. Totally incomprehensible behaviour.

Suzie said...

I too agree totally with all your comments Kath, the army would have sorted this out in no time. I had to take my disabled son to football training at United's academy in Salford, Manchester on Tuesday and was very nervous knowing riots were going on down the road, we shouldn't have to put up with this and feel scared in our own towns. Have a great day, your sneak peaks look fab. Hugs Suzie x

Anesha said...

Totally agree with you Kath!! Hope you are not getting too much rain. Big hug to Buddy. :)

Jane said...

I totally agree with you!! except for one point - the Police - they only do what they're told to do by the laws created by Government and can only do what they're "allowed" to do. They also now have to work with fear of reprisal for making a mistake. A tough job!

Stamping 4 Pleasure said...

I just have one thing to say as I whole heartedly agree with EVERYTHING you said . . . .


KATH FOR PM

The Government wouldn't know how to organise a kid's tea party - no matter what party are in "power".

Stamps and Paper said...

Kath I am with you 100% of this...and I agree the army should have been bought in,why are we so soft????
Anyway your sneek preview looks exciting...??

Well said Kath.

Anette said...

I'm happy to see that the Snowflake is back!! And hopefully everything else will cool down as well..........

Tara said...

Couldn't have put it any better if I'd tried Kath, I agree with everything you say! I do feel sad for the police though because they seem so tied by the government's rediculous red tape!!
Hugs Tara xx

snirp said...

Well said Cath. we cant understand this mindless destruction and our hearts go out to all those affected. Its time like this we should be able to call on the nations strength to assist in bringing the actions of these hooligans to an end. Ever in our thoughts.
Love from the colonials!
Chris

Kat said...

Like everyone else I'm 100% with you Kath. Dreadful things seem to happen to decent people and the low life seem to come off best!

Like your sneaky peeks. Looking forward to seeing the whole cards.

Miri said...

It's really terrible what happened in these cities.

Your sneak peek looks great. I'll definitely come back to check your cards!!

Lin said...

A popular (or not, depending on your politics) talk-show host here has been predicting this for months, and he thinks it will spread world-wide. I hope he's wrong. Oh, to be back in our childhood when right was right and wrong was wrong and there was no grey overwhelming everything. This PC stuff has got to be done away with!

Love your peeks today, Kath! Maybe those entitled babies need some snow dumped on them to cool things down!! :))

Tab said...

Wooohooo, Kath! You go girl, totally and 100% in agreement with you, chick! Its outrageous what has been happening and its high-time it was sorted out once and for all .....bring on the water cannons LOL!

Gorgeous sneak peek, looking forward to seeing more :o)
Big Hugs

Artyjen said...

Think the majority of decent people on the planet would agree! Zero tolerance is needed for sure...I'd personally like to see the return of national service if we can't actually shoot the &*!!$ LOL
