That's a good use of his time isn't it?

We have the NHS, the police force and our school building programme in meltdown.

And David Cameron goes to Turkey.

That's why he has a cabinet with different ministers HolgateCorner.

You can't expect our new political leader to not visit other global political figures.

Anything for a dig eh? [:o)]

The only concerning thing about his visit to Turkey is the fact that he seems to be pushing for them to join the EU. [V][V]

'You can't expect our new political leader to not visit other global political figures.'

And tell them we're second rate compared to them too.

Does wonders for their egos...

Cameron can offer support for Turkish membership of the EU without any risk of it ever happening. France, Greece & Cyprus will always veto it.

He's got loads of time. Big Society remember?

Soon, he'll have 4 days a week off as an army of volunteers will run the country

Apart from people like you Mick who "cant be arsed" to do volunteer work for the good of society

Aye, true.

Tell me Falr, what have you volunteered for?

David Cameron in Turkey

Ive done quite a few community projects in my time - cleaning up rivers, tidying up parkland, cleaning up graffiti

I dont see why people cant put a bit of time in when they obviously expect to get a lot out.

Why do you expect everything on a plate?

2 things:

1. I hope they charged him a tenner to get in.

2. Once he has paid his tenner i hope he fekin stays there.

I've done all that too - but I got paid for it.

I won't be volunteering to return. It was shíte when I got a few quid for it.

I feel no shame in saying I won't lift a finger to do jobs that folk were once paid to do.

and Germany, as well.

In fact, Merkel won't have it and they're the most powerful nation in Europe, at this minute.

Yep - I'll teach them you get stuff by grafting for it. And that effort should be rewarded.

Now - my grass needs cutting. You fancy volunteering?

FlarPhone_Warehouse your sarcasm is not what one would expect from a do-gooder like yourself.

Im not a do-gooder at all mate.

Just not one to sit around whining about everything whilst sitting on my arse doing FCK all about it [^]

Agree with mick that its a hard pill to swallow doing a job for free when someone was once paid for it.

But some community work should be done at least for pride in your area. I was in Middlesbrough yesterday in the greasham bit and saw a fella and his kid from there own front door throw a can and paper onto the street. I cant get my head around it.

In australia, well defo in queensland on everysunday volunteer kids clean the motorways and towns of litter and there is no shame in this really popular events and other volunteer excercises. Thats why I cant wait to emigrate 18months and counting!!!

Dont be talking like that Dave.

If everyone thought like that we would end up living in a nicer environment and a society that was more community minded.

Better to just winge about everything whilst sat watching TV

Scrote Posted on 28/07/2010 12:58
David Cameron in Turkey

who was whining?

there are a number of problems with a volunteer workforce leaving aside the simple economic stupidity of calling for one when there is less than 100% employment for people of employable age

if a job NEEDS doing then someone should be paid to do it 'cos you can guarantee that as soon as the weather gets a bit XXXXXXy all those lovely summer jobs will suddenly become a lot less attractive to the volunteers

anything that has a negative effect on society if it isn't done should be provided for by central government budgeting where it isn't already covered by private industry

what makes cameron's idiocy doubly stupid is the fact he wants to lay off people who currently do some of these jobs - utter madness

Exactly, There's nowt wrong with boeing down the local community centre if they need some help.

Lots of people volunteer for community-based activities. I can't see that Cameron has any policies to increase the number of people volunteering, especially if the retirement age goes up. Voluntary organisations get a big input from healthy pensioners.

oooooo Posted on 28/07/2010 15:44
David Cameron in Turkey

There's nothing wrong with people taking some responsibility but this big society thing is simply a smoke-screen.

Think about it:

How can we make cuts? We'll just cut anything. How will we replace those lost services? We'll just get untrained people to do it for free and when they don't, we'll claim that they were important services after all!

How do we pay for stuff that has expenses? Oh, we'll collect money that people have forgotten about in old bank accounts.

(I honestly still don't believe they are even suggesting the last one)
