Brits Are 'Dangerously Lazy And Idle'

Lazy Brits would rather watch a television programme they do not like than get out of their chair to change channels.
Brits Are 'Dangerously Lazy And Idle' A survey by Nuffield Health has been finding out our slobbish habits with some shocking results.

Around one in six people said if their remote control was broken, they would continue watching the same channel rather than get up.

More than half of the 2,000 adults questioned (59%) would get the lift rather than climb two flights of stairs to their workplace.

And a third (36%) said they would not run to catch a bus.

Just bringing some discussion to the forums. This is a discussion site, right? This is the UK and Ireland section of said discussion site, right?

Surely that should be your slobbish habits. I would like to respond to this outrageous slur on my country but I can't be arsed. Too much typing involved.

PS I don't think there was much TV when we had an empire worthy of note or condemnation depending upon your point of view.

With intelligence my old mate, just let people like you kill each other whilst we sit back lazily, governing, watching and laughing.

How many Brits were killed and continue to be killed for the glorious British empire?

Hello just thought i'd clear a few things up...

There are two types of people in the UK.

One type like to sit on their backsides, complaining that life has treated them badly, with their hand out claiming benefits ALL their working lives, using an encyclopedia of excuses not to work, and blaming the government for everything. They complain that their benefit money is not enough to live on, but at the same time they drink and smoke everyday!

The majority of these people also (where biologically possible) have as many children as they can, and especially if they are single women (who sleep with as many men as possible) so they can claim a higher rate of benefits, claim housing benefit, child benefits council tax benefit, so in effect they never have to lift a finger until their youngest child turns 16.

Can you believe there is 4th generation unempolyed in some parts of england!
Which means great grandad, grandad, father and son never work their entire lives!
THE BENEFITS SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK!

The second type of people in the UK are hard workers, honest, tax paying, ambitious and by no means lazy.
Unfortunately, the latter is a minority in the british isles, and as a result the taxes ebb higher and higher for the good honest working folk, because the money for benefits has to come from somewhere!

So you see it greatly saddens me when a whimsical survey of a meager 2,000 people generalizes against a population of around 60 million, and says that Brits are lazy and idle.

Brits Are 'Dangerously Lazy And Idle'

Where else would you find a stupid statement like this !!!

Just think for a second, if Brits are sooooooooooo lazy then why do they still live much better than 95% of Poles??? You guys made exactly the same thoughtless comments about us on this forum and despite our temporary problems, so many of you are still coming to live here. Why is that? Because we are all lazy too and not achieving anything? lol. Something is not adding up over here.

British people happen to be both dangerously lazy and dangerously lucky. Our government hands us whatever we need before we even realise we need it.

I assume, the way you put it, you are British, right? You say your government is basically responsible for what you guys have. So tell me, where does your government have all that money from if not from your "lazy" nation which in my opinion must be working really hard to please all of the others who never contribute any money into your budget. I agree, there are probably some lazy people in UK, just like anywhere else but the majority of you guys is obviously being offended on this forum by such thoughtless statements, don't you think? It doesn't take Einstein to understand that highly developed country like UK can only be successful as it is because of your entire hard working nation.

2,000 adults

From 10 cities is hardly representative.

Still, that the results from 2000 people should be so distasterous should be a warning...

You forgot to mention that 73% of those survery said they were too tired to have sex at the end of the day. ;)

Simple, we had slaves.....had we kept the empire, every home would have a standby slave so when the remote battery ran out, we just get them to turn the telly over ;0)

Damn the fall of the empire, I'll just have to ensure I have spare batteries in my kitchen draw so I dont have to get up and turn over the telly!

British people happen to be both dangerously lazy and dangerously lucky

Do you know how much a single person gets on the benefits? Its hardly enough to feed a mouse...It wouldnt even cover my untilites, let alone feeding and clothing a normal person.

These people are not lucky, these people know nothing different thanks to this country which has erroded away at the industry we once had.

Haha :) but it's a true result from the survery. More worrying for me was that two thirds of the parents surveyed said they were too tired to play with their children.

But how many of them were too tired for sex at the start of the day?

I suppose we should be glad that they could find 2000 people in inner cities that could articulate any sort of answer.

Haha, they didn't ask that in the survey.

Don't quite know why I keep typing "survery" either...

I suppose we should be glad that they could find 2000 people in inner cities that could articulate any sort of answer.

"Apparently" they asked a cross section of society. Or they made it up in their bedroom one night.

Still, they didn't just seek out lazy people and ask them so the results are slightly concerning.

Good because I'm not red-haired.

I tried to find the report but it seems it's not published on-line yet. If it is, I can't find it.

I doubt it will ever be published.
Another cock and bull story from Mr lost cos his IRA dreams, story, the guy is a waster, as much as i love poking fun at him, he hardly has anything good to contribute.

It will be, it's been published on paper. Just waiting for it on line. It's probably already on the Internet somewhere but not the "official" places.

Do you ever have an original thought?

If the Brits are lazy, then why is Ireland in the sh1t now?

Actually don't bother with the answers to that question, we will just get one off your bull crap bigoted yahoo news stories.

Readily available credit, a property bubble, and the overloading of cheap labour in the job market.

I kept it simple so you might understand.

PS please stay on topic, I am sure there is somebody online you havent proposed to yet. Now is your chance.

I'm going to Dublin in a few weeks, should be great as always... good thing guys like you stay in your scummy bars where no true Irish frequent.

I drink in the The Jobstown Inn. Enjoy being ripped off in the superpubs, you might find a 17 year old, maybe you will propose to her too.

ShelleyS

I am sure you can get a Pole to be your lackey for a fiver an hour!

Back on topic.......

Of these 2.4 million children in the UK are overweight and 700,000 are obese," he explains. "Obesity is currently the most serious childcare health issue - it's a huge, huge problem."

What do you feed your kids in the UK? Lard?
