The political class of the UK is a dreadful state with a lack of leadership, lack of ideas and lack of drive. The 1960s/1070s establishment won after all.

When Labour wins the next GE, Corbyn will be promoted from "unelectable leader" to "unelectable PM" by the MSM and their parrotts.

Agreed, the current problem of our political class. They are wusses. i had not great truck with Thatcher, but at least she wanted to lead and would do things because she thought she was making stuff better rather than what the man on the Clapham omnibus wanted.
David Cameron who brought about the whole sorry state of Brexit at least did one good thing: he told Europe to get lost when they wanted money from the UK to bail them out. It was unpopular decision, but even in my Europhile outlook it was undoubtedly the right decision. it is just a shame about all the other things he did.

Cocaine deaths reach all-time high in England and Wales

"While the number of deaths have risen, so too has the age of those impacted.

Since 2010, the proportion of people aged 20 to 29 who died from cocaine has dropped by 34 per cent, and by 18 per cent among those aged 30 to 39

By contrast, deaths increased by 46 per cent among those aged 40 to 49, and 138 per cent those aged 50 to 69."

That link is siting 1993 as a turn year. Sure, it was a year of coming of Pentium X86 processor AND wide spreading of digital sound in music and television.
Consider cocaine addiction as a punishment from God for all these sins.
Now the young are too busy with their smartphones and therefore do not see core problem of a society. The elders are more sensitive to a total madness / dead end  in UK political system.
I will  never understand why citizens of UK are so in hate to their country (as well as USA's citizens resp.), why their leaders are destroying their country.
Nobody cares to do something. Even the royal family. Actually it is a part of a source of a problem, and God is punishing royals in UK, for example Diane's death.
Sometimes I think that I like UK and USA more than their citizens.
The Church is dead - it is deaf to modern sins, modern idolatries (crude oil idolatry, computer idolatry etc/), doggism on streets.
Now the socializm is coming to Europe and UK, and USA.

African authors refused visas for UK book festival
Edinburgh International Book Festival

It follows similar complications at last month's Womad festival, where at least three African acts on the bill were unable to perform due to visa complications with British immigration.

for shame, united kingdom
