The novelist, Zadie Smith, thought to be on a shortlist for the Booker Prize this year has slandered the English culture saying
"It's the way people look at each other on the train; just general stupidity, madness, vulgarity, stupid TV shows, aspirational arseholes, money everywhere.

"It's just a disgusting place, it's terrifying. Maybe I'm just getting old."

okay...now in my opinion that is hugely out of proportion but I can see her point tho! We are turning into an american-ilised country everyday. Could this be what she hates?

Whats peoples opinions? Are our cultures like this?

In big cities the culture is like that! Especially London!
but if you come out of the cities you will find more beautifull culture then you shake a stick at!

hmmm...the problem with younger kids nowadays is that you get parents saying you want to give their kids everything they didnt have but then they forget that THEN the kids will want everything!
my opinion on the topic is PARENTING! there just doesnt seem to be enough love and caring for the kids.
there are other problems such as drugs and violence but tha vast majority of the problem is that there are problems but people are just too f***ing lazy to do a thing about it!!!
and there's no good saying the government should do this and that when the general public dont trust the policies of its own government.
soz...bit of a rant there!

I agree!
it is all down to the parents! If my Mum found out I'd told a stranger in the street to F' off, she would have killed me. Instead parents now just laugh!

maybe...they should wash their mouths out with soap??
WAIT...thats child abuse now!!!
i got it done when i swore at my mum! taught me never to say it in front of her again!

and another thing...THE MEDIA! people assume thats why we're all dumb and stupid! its sort of right but sort of not! we're stupid enough to go along with there daft publishing schemes so therefore its our own faults!
and another...why can people never use their brains??? are people so lazy they wont actually think for themselves or are they scared that if they think they might actually become someone good????

AHHH!!! i need to break something now...ME VERY WORKED UP!!!

i agree, thats so true. parents have a lot of their rights taken away in disciplining their children . i mean, yeah some parents do abuse that right but bloody hell, you're not even allowed to give a simple smack on the arse these days
