    They can give your daughter a 'morning after pill' without your knowledge or consent, but they can't give an aspirin without your permission...

    They can give birth control prevention measures without your knowledge or permission, because the kids are responsible enough to make their own decisions... but if they skip school both parents can be fined £60 each for failing to ensure THE CHILD gets to school!

    They can show kids movies rated above their age in class...

    They can take kids on 'School trips' in school time - where they can be getting drunk every night at 14 years old, but if you want to take them on the odd beneficial holiday in school time you can be fined £60 per parent per day!!!

    Who do the kids belong to? - the parents or this nanny state???

    Crazy mixed up country :?

    Hope you gave them some grief John!!!

    Thats because Common Sense aint that common anymore!
    The following is something thats been knocking around work for a while and sums it up . . .

    "We mourn the sad passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
    No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
    Why the early bird gets the worm; 
    Life isn't always fair;
    and maybe it was my fault. 
    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. 
    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. 
    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or a paracetamol to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. 
    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. 
    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. 
    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. 
    Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason. 
    He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; 
    I Know My Rights 
    I Want It Now 
    Someone Else Is To Blame 
    I'm A Victim 
    Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.
    If you still remember him, pass on his valued lessons.
    If not, join the majority and do nothing.
    "

    Here endeth the lesson :roll: :roll: :cry:

    what has become of this country at all...........

    without common sense stevensons rocket would not have been built nd besides the HSE would've slapped some sort of prohibition order on it anyways.

    all the mills with exposed machinery where people got killed everyday yet no one shouted "underdog" when an accident happened

    a place where kids went to school to better themselves and not to have a kick off at the teacher for shouting.

    a place where the cane was routinely used to keep things in order and just the mere thought of it was enough to control a school --- this should definitely be brought back imo :wink:

    the nursery rhymes that i grew up learning are about british history and colonialism so i can't understand why they want to scrap our history and yet revel in teaching kids about the aztecs n stuff

    maybe we english folk just don't exist in this "new" world
