    My experience of Sussex women has not been good, there being a preponderance of bat winged fatties by 30, who often exhibit chavvy character. If you do not conform to their chasing invitations, they label you as gay, or worse still, in my case a paedophile.

    Remember Al Stuart; "She walks like Greta Garbo and talks like Yogi Bear."

    Or Dylan, and I'm thinking in marriage; "All for a moment's glory, while his back is being whipped"

    I am amazed at how so many women can allow themselves to just run to rack and ruin after marriage or childbirth.
    Nothing wrong with slender girls, stimulation in the right places always can improve things curve wise.

    But blokes are the same.
    I think it comes back to that whole thing about needing to be in a relationship to have any kind of self-esteem.
    I think that's so sad : they key word in that statement is "self" and personally I think it's an insult to the other person if you let yourself go.

    Just think about all the couples you know for a moment.
    Let's say you know ten couples well.
    How many of them look good when they go out ?
    I mean proper head-turners.
    Does the man look cool, fit and sharp ?
    Does the woman look good enough to eat ?
    I'm guessing one or two couples at most once you get to the mid-forties and beyond .. in .. and here's the key to it all .. in the UK.

    I think as a nation we're just slobs and having been sliding downhill into the fridge for the last thirty years.
    It's tied up with the rise in home entertainment (Sky and TV on demand, surround sound, etc rather than music), the rise in the price of alcohol in bars and restaurants, the decline of the pub and the internet driving all the above - which you can order online for delivery to your home along with the Friday and Saturday night take-aways.

    We're a nation of fat fucks. End of.



    I remember trying to get a mate to give online dating a go about five years ago. He was early fifties at the time, lots of lines on his face - he's a smoker - but a full head of hair and a face of real character. He's a lovely bloke, really chatty and intelligent but he has low self-esteem because he's a mechanic and believes other people think he's a dumb grease monkey. It's not true at all, but he's nervous when he meets new people and tries a bit too hard, you know ?
    Once he gets to know them, he's fine, but it's that initial stumbling block .. that and the fact that he point-blank refused once he saw some of the women on the sites that were around his age


    I've dated a lot of foreign women because I love finding out about different cultures, enjoy languages and find them sexier than English girls generally.
    They look after themselves better, have better manners, don't dress twenty years younger than they should and have a sense of style that you just don't get from the bat-winged fatties. It's hard to look good with a silk scarf here and a dab of No.5 there when all the fella can see is the a stretched angel tattoo on your arm, which by now is bigger than his ..

    I would extend the decline to 40 years, and cite many factors which have marked it, and I risk being defined as an old grump, but never the less, a major rant.

    The BBC has declined enormously from an icon of design, especially in loudspeakers - it had the world at its feet in about '70, and its programmes which were then world leading also, are now so dumbed down, even to the point of being of kindergarten standard.

    They also manage to employ people who; cannot speak properly or clearly, cannot mix sound well enough, the music often loud enough to mask the narrative as well as being obviously from a broad band source compared with the speech quality, which exhibits proximity effects, and people who are self important and patronising when they depict the banal content.

    This has to at least subliminally affect all of us by daily intake, and it is then adopted subconsciously as the new norm.

    I also contend that academia is dumbed down, (50% of the population to get a degree, from 3% 50 years ago), defines a shift in the peak of the distribution curve. Researchers also do not test thoroughly enough because they are chasing early publishing in order to get another research grant.

    We have been through a period of chav rule 15 or so years ago, with mass drinking and drug taking in a culture of hedonistic abandon of concern for others. Now the hipsters are on the rise, and apparently drinking and smoking are rejected by the young, perhaps some good here.

    But there remains a major change in the morality of our society,; I have never experienced so much dishonesty by so many, and in all stratas of society. I have won 18 of 19 legal cases which I have instigated in the last 40 years, many against corporations, and I also have to keep an eye on more personal interactions.

    There have been numerous exposees of dishonesty reported on the media, members of the latter part of the last Conservative government being involved in many scandals, followed by Blair who seemed to have little allegiance to socialism.

    We have seen numerous pension collapses, each followed by the announcement of another scheme to cover the situation properly, and which also then collapsed. Many corruption prosecutions have been announced only this week.

    This zeitgeist is enough to cause even the strongest of people to become resigned, and has resulted in attitudes expressed by 'go with the flow'. (I was described in the 80s by a bank manager as "A lone voice in the wilderness")

    We are getting fatter, partly because under stress eating is one main survival response. ('Army on its stomach'), and more by our neurotic response to the external environment. So we all sit in our little concrete boxes, 'emancipated' with our toys and personal cinema, watching what to me is crap 'culture', and in high resolution, able to see blackheads clearly.

    There is to me nothing even comparable to that which so inspired me in my 20s being produced currently, partly because the awful truth is something many are trying to avoid, rather than absorb statements about. So they opt for fags, booze, and pizzas and crap escapism Hollywood films.

    Now we have the spectacle of major political upset and instability to add the 'perfect storm' mix, and we will see our standard of living ebb away gradually and solidly for years I suspect.

    I also suspect that the socialisations of the 70s, (remember Abigail's Party?) are long gone, partly for financial reasons, but also because of increased alienation. Pubs are shutting down and people are getting pissed at home more cheaply, especially in my age group.

    You may think that I am depressed, well I am saddened because I never wanted wealth or fame, just good relations with people, genuine friends, and an improvement to the society which was rebelled against in the 60s and 70s, and this has been largely taken away from me by these societal changes.
