That is fair. I hope women can protest during the election by voting for Labour.
I despise Corbyn just as much as Johnson and thus shall be voting for neither

Relative to what? The behaviour of children in the past? I would argue today’s youth are better behaved; numerous measures have shown today’s youth are having less sex and doing less illegal drugs
I don't think you'd get that answer if you asked residents of an estate which was being ruled by gangs of kids, or old people who can't get past gangs of kids loitering outside shops. Or teachers who regularly get threatened by physical violence by their pupils.

The idea that children are better behaved now than they were in the past is, frankly, ludicrous.

Please! You can hate him after the election. Millions of people are depending on your vote. Voting otherwise will only bring in the Tories to continue the destruction of this country.

Subjectiveness at best; just because an OAP is scared of a few kids with hoodies up to shelter them from the rain it doesn’t mean that kids on a whole are worse behaved when all objective measures of “bad” behaviour point to the opposite

'hoodies up to shelter them from the rain'

Oh please...:rofl: Do you think I came down in the last shower? Which, presumably, might have been the one that got these poor little lambs' hair wet, hence the need for them to put their hoods up?

Well men don’t use umbrellas do they
Show me an objective study which says that today’s youth is worse behaved than previous generations?

An 'objective study' into whether children are 'worse behaved' is a contradiction in terms.

Do you have any counter studies or not?

How about this article entitled 'UK youths top European bad behaviour league' following a study by the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR). A well-respected organisation. And yes, 2006 is 'recent' when we're looking at intergenerational change.

By the way 'Vox' is not a reputable source.

This study is comparing inter-country behaviour, not inter-generational behaviour.

According to our lovely PM Boris Johnson

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.i...036.html%3famp

Quote from the article:

“In a column written for The Spectator, the Tory leader said it was “outrageous that married couples should pay for ‘the single mothers’ desire to procreate independently of men. And he suggested it was “feeble” for a man to be unable or unwilling to “take control of his woman”, arguing Britain needed to “restore women’s desire to be married”.
More misleading polical claims, how long we going back here?

Founding rule of The Spectator, Daily Mail and some circles within the Conservative Party- give the smug traditional values with added vitriol crowd precisely what they want.

Does the PM have issues with his ex-girlfriends over their parenting skills and onerous financial demands? :rolleyes:
I've read worse abuse of single mothers and all unmarried parents in Mrs Thatcher's Downing Street Years autobiography.

That is fair. I agree he should not be locked up, but women should protest by voting for the Labour Party.
