Firstly, Tom Paine, usually a man of efficient wordage, delivered a long, and quite awesome, damning of this government. If I were to quote anything, it would be just about all of it, so please read the whole thing here.
Longrider also finds great form in commenting on Porter's piece.
Who would have thought, in the dying years of the 20th Century, that the United Kingdom would slide inexorably into acquiescent totalitarianism by the end of the first decade of the 21st? Not by the gun, the bullet or the bomb; not by armed insurrection or war; but for the chiiiiilllldreeen, for health and safety – oh, yes, most certainly safety, for it is a human right these days to be safe.That's just a snippet, it gets even better than that, trust me. So go read the whole thing while I play around with bacon, eggs, fried bread, but not beans.
Not this week, anyway.
