Why do youngsters today seem to be full of hate now days. If I were young now I would not have children in this country. Britain today often makes me ashamed to be British. Sorry about that but it does.

I don’t think thing are any worse now than they have ever been. Today news of anything is instant. If somebody is stabbed in Sydney this afternoon we would know instantly. Years ago an incident in the next town would be unknown.

There is only a tiny percentage of troublemakers. We have three kids and and I trust them completely.


Have to agree though that punishment certainly doesn’t fit the crime any more.

Crowdfunding raised over £40k so far according to latest beeb web site. Unfortunately no money can replace the time, love and care put into individual's creations.

It would be interesting to know what they intend to do with so much cash!

The original aim was for £5000 so 8X the amount is a massive excess.

I just hope that other 'little darlings' do not 'jump on the bandwagon'.

I don't think that the amount collected comes near to making up for the loss of a whole exhibition Brian. You know what things cost to replace these days.
