We here in these Dis-United British Isles have long been accustomed to ‘experts’ and other busy-bodies telling us what do eat, to drink, to wear, to drive etc., etc., because they, and they alone, seem to know what is going to be ‘good for us’.
We cannot smoke in bars, restaurants, offices, even bus-shelters because a bunch of well-funded clowns got a law passed which stops us from doing so because of the ‘perils’ of ‘second-hand smoke’! Don’t get me wrong, I used to smoke, heavily. But I stopped, on my own, and without any of the billion-pound anti-smoking products pushed by the NHS. I stopped because I wished to stop, because I benefited from not smoking, and incidentally because I saved a hell of a lot of cash by not buying cigarettes. But I would stress that it was my decision to stop, not because some Government-funded arsehole was insisting that I stop.
We are harried from morning to night by fools telling us what to do, whether it be eating the ‘wrong’ sort of food, or drinking incorrect quantities of alcohol. We already face the threat of the new Gestapo, the totally-politicised and thuggish British Police Service, ever eager to carry out their political masters’ wishes by crushing any dissent, except of course Muslim dissent. We face the days when the huge raft of anti-democratic Laws passed and active within the last fifteen years are already stifling free speech, in what is spoken, or written; and the day is fast approaching when what we think will probably be monitored as well!
And now of course the epidemic has reached the streets of New York, with yet another man who thinks he, and he alone, has the answer to the ‘Obesity’ problem apparently raging through the streets and homes of that wonderful city. God bless Mayor Bloomberg, because few others will!
