I caught a snippet on the BBC breakfast programme this morning of the Queen of Leftism, Polly Toynbee, pontificating on the news that 83% of the population believe the nation is in moral decline.
Not true, according to the First Lady of Liberalism. Things are better now than ever she reckons, it's just that we always think things are worse thanks to the rose tinted goggles we use to look back to the past.
As an example of how much less rude we all are, the Dame of Denial cited how much less rude we are to ethnic minorities than we used to be. OK, leaving aside that quite a few people from ethnic minorities are pretty rude about the natives - even going to the extent of trying to blow them to smithereens for daring to go about their daily routines - it's a remarkable premise to suggest that because we are less rude to 8% of the population it does not matter that the other 92% are rude to one another and that things are in fact "better".
It's also quite likely that, although people are not so likely to be rude to the face of someone from an ethnic group it is only because to do so would risk arrest and prosecution. Whether they remain polite about non-white people in the privacy of their own home or in the company of close friends is something I would personally doubt.
The Mother of Moral Relativism then turned her attention - for some reason, as it was not part of the discussion which was about manners and politeness - to the subject of violence, claiming that violence is actually less prevalent now than it used to be! Really? Tell that to Rhys Jones mother, Polly.
What she was actually referring to, without actually saying it, was the myth of domestic violence and the feminist liberal lie that most men used to beat their wives black and blue as a matter of routine. A myth deliberately constructed by the feminist movement for the simple purpose of portraying men as monsters.
After all that, the clearest picture to emerge from the discussion was how much the liberal left, the BBC and the Guardianistas are out of touch with society. When 83% of people say something and the best the BBC and the left can do is close their eyes, cover their ears and yell "nyah, nyah! Can't hear you!!!!" then you know that their ideology is a complete shambles.
