Millions will remember Maureen Lipmans TV character Beattie praising her grandson when he got an ology.
But the TV advert from 1988 has been blamed by Ukip leader Nigel Farage for encouraging a generation to study for what he considers to be worthless degrees.

Talk about an own goal... you can't make this stuff up - LoL!
UKIP jumped the shark
UKip also endorsed gay fascist agenda
Think about it. The devil walks the earth, especially in once-great England.
Farage stated his comments about drug policy were personal views and differed greatly from his party.
So who jumped the shark you or UKIP?
This from the same country that elected Obama. Twice.
Especially gratifying, and worth playing the video again to locate the following quote, was the alarm expressed by The Independent Columnist, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, from which I quote (ff 49:56)
Everything they say, A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y..... E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G ..... T-H-E-Y..... S-A-Y ..... I-S ..... C-O-N-T-E-M-P-T-A-B-L-E..... T-O..... M-E!
worthy a hearty chuckle . . .
Then ff50:55 to continue:
What has to happen between now and the elections that are coming up is that the media has to be kind of controlled in terms of how often Farage gets to the airwaves. I think we should be very, very worried.
Censorship The Independent way.
UK's Labour/Tory/msm are frightened by UKIP's popularity and are working overtime/doubletime to prevent their success in the coming election cycle.
“we need to do more to keep drugs out of our prisons.”
This statement floors me. It’s a serious problem. Prison is the most regulated environment known to man and they STILL can’t control drugs?! Our drug warriors still think they can control drugs in a free society? In Saudi Arabia, they behead drug dealers. And every year, they still have more to behead. The strongest public punishment, and they *still* can’t stop the flow of drugs.
How about we legalize it, tax it, regulate the harsh stuff to addicts only, and put the drug dealers out of business?
Oh, and stop stripping innocent Americans of their civil liberties as well?
It not only mentally disables (current primary excuse used to dismiss jihad) but like a virus spreads through prison condoned dawa which gives converts (reverts) certain protections
its absolutely criminal to permit this institutional discrimination.
Actually, for Britain, he has a point. British prisons are filled to the brim with Pakistanis, to the point where they don’t even have room for burglars and other criminals, so are letting them go or never sending them there in the first place. So the drug laws are useless in any event.
And like the US, which is right now quietly having an explosion of heroin use, caused almost entirely by having too many prescription opiate drugs, Britain is having the same problem. Importantly, a large percent of the new heroin users are not poor people, but middle class and upper middle class.
So if they don’t put some order into heroin use, they are going to have a whopping big number of AIDS and Hepatitis C patients.
And this is not something they can just mull around for a few decades like they have been doing. It has to be dealt with quickly.
From the smarmy (what else?) dubbed narrative (with reference to the older age group that supports UKIP):
"The ideas that Farage champions - like freedom and self-reliance - are old-fashioned values. UKIP represents the noble ideas of another era." (emphasis on "old-fashioned" with a condescending downturn on "another era".) @29:30
As if it were centuries ago and not mere decades. Well, DUH! That generation still remembers the fight against the previous European fascism - unlike the young hipsters who think it will all turn out well because multi-culturalism is such a great thing...
