Britain’s youth are among the most badly behaved in Europe, a study by a think-tank has suggested.
On every indicator of bad behaviour – drugs, drink, violence, promiscuity – the UK was at or near the top, said the Institute for Public Policy Research.
Measured against German, French and Italian youngsters, British 15-year-olds are drunk more often and involved in more fights, and a higher proportion have had sex.
We also have one of the highest rates of children raised without fathers. T’is no coincidence.
The BBC’s article points out that many teenagers don’t interact much with the rest of their families or parents, but skirts round the issue that most aren’t a part of a family, as a single mother and her kids isn’t a family. Most don’t have parents-plural either, just a stressed out useless skank who probably only had the kid to get a council house and some child support/benefits. Naturally it’s far too politically incorrect to attribute these factors to the removal by divorce courts of fathers from families, or the way financially rewarding and excusing skankhood makes women unashamed to become single mother whores.
It would be foolish to claim everything was a crime-free utopia before feminism of course, but nonetheless, the onset of feminism and the success of its aim of removing men from children’s lives has sent much of the youth population into little more than a feral state.

It is only a matter of time before these ‘kids’ grow up and learn to be real criminals. Let’s see who suffers the most then.

I would not get too worried about them getting older, most of them will have eaten themselves to death on crap food or have so many health issues, the real criminal effect would be that we once again will have to pay for all of this, in more ways than just our money.

These studies must be taken with a grain of salt.
As England suffers from the same sorts of European petty jealousy of it that the US and much of the English speaking world does…
Italy, France and Germany have a love-hate relationship with most of the English speaking world and these figures could reflect that bias.

Good point from pete.
Now here are a few thoughts to conjure with.
Thought one: the people who have most to fear from the feral gangs are the elderly, particularly elderly women, and most particularly elderly women with no man around to protect them. Indeed are these not the people who are most likely to say they are afraid to go out of their front doors because of what may be waiting for them?
Thought two: the torchbearers of feminism, those who were at the forefront of the most extreme bra-burning, male-bashing ideology of the sixties and seventies, are now moving into their elderly years. So are hordes of women who followed their lead and did not give any particular thought to the long term effects.
Thought three: the most severe damage to our young men has been done by just those women and their camp-followers who have infested our educational establishments, social services and legal institutions over the last 30 years or so, and driven their brutal agenda of dispossessing boys and young men of a decent start in life.
Thought four: they have been so successful that our streets are now ruled by gangs of angry, alienated, unfathered and disaffected young men, the natural and inevitable products of their programme.
Thought five: the women who are most likely to be alone in their old age are those who thought they were too good for any man and didn’t need or want them, at least until it was too late. Or who had them and divorced them, or put them in an early grave.
Thought six: what goes around, comes around.
Not every old lady is a sweet, harmless granny. Many of them have very dodgy histories, particularly over the last 30 or 40 years. Many of them will not enjoy a quiet, peaceful old age. Many of them will deserve exactly what they are going to get.
