    The population is certainly more mobile than say 25 years ago.
    People form social networks on-line rather than in their neighbourhood.

    I should make more of an effort to chat to the neighbours, I find people are nice when you bother. When it's cold, dark or wet, who wants to stop and talk!

    I just got back from Georgia USA. Many more people use church as a social club out there.
    WallMart has a permanent welcomer, you don't get that in our supermarkets. Just a security guard eyeing you up.

    I blame the Jews and the Irish.
    Oi.:hmmm:

    Yes it is broken. Uni lot think I'm odd for saying hello to elderly people on my walk home (it's what we do in Ire) and the elderly just look at me like I'm gonna rob them.

    Cities...well, cities everywhere probably are skanky holes full of people that are either drunk or on drugs. The unemployment rate (although that can't really be helped atm I presume), those on benefits that shouldn't be, the obesity rates, the pregnancy rates, the crime and... there's too much to take into consideration. It's all gone to ****.

    Society is obviously broken. The chav epidemic is destroying everything positive in this country.

    If this threat is not wiped out this country will become a lazy, unemployed, thugish, wasteland where speaking like a fool and being violent replace hard work and succesful careers as high points of life.

    RIP british society

    it depends what you define as broken. I believe that the society we're in at the moment can be improved significantly, therefore in my mind there is something wrong somewhere within society (for i believe if it ain't broke don't fix it) :yep:.

    No, if you are part of the liberal elite (that run this country) who are far removed from the society inhabited by the ordinary man.

    No, it's not. Cameron would say that, because it brings him one step closer to election.

    Look, people are *****, and they always have been. British society has NEVER been not broken.
