Ever worried about how you look, from a facial, skin and hair point of view? If you are young, usually but not exclusively female, you perhaps take most care to look as smart, or groovy, as the people in your circle of friends; and of course you might meet ‘Mr. or Miss Right’, and travel as a couple from then on! Job done, you may think. The fact that most people select their partners only partly on visual attributes is a truth that not many will admit to. Speaking as I do purely for myself, I met my future wife in a ballroom in London, when I was three-parts pie-eyed, but still had sufficient brains to attach myself like a leech to her hand, and the rest is forty-one years of life. She was beauty to me then, and she still is now, and I often wonder what she saw when this man hove into view in front of her chair, and asked if she would dance. But the point of this post is not to discuss the fact that my wife and I met, and over a period of time, in my case some ten seconds, fell in love, but that we are both elderly, and look it!
So what do you make of the lady who was turned away from a Asda supermarket because she had no Photo I.D. to prove her age. As can be seen from the photo in the newspaper, she is a fairly striking brunette, but the main thing is she doesn’t look young, or at least young enough to be challenged from an age point of view. No, she was refused service because she couldn’t prove her age! That, folks is a direct result of this Nu-Labour control freakery about telling everyone how to behave. First it was smoking, then it was eating, and now it’s booze! When we are told that we drink too much by Public health minister, Dawn Primarolo, that is when we should start to feel nervous! Why, because that scrawny little Trot is sharpening up the thinnest of wedges to control what we drink, and when we drink it!
One of the lesser-known computer systems, used by both the Americans and the British, is Echelon. It is the spy masters’ wet dream brought to life! The U.K. branch of this system is set in the U.S. Base of Menwith Hills. and has the ability to monitor ALL phone and E-mail messages emanating from the UK and the western side of Europe. It is based upon the use and detection of selected words and phrases, together with known ‘persons of interest’, and it means that the U.S and U.K. governments have the ability right now to listen on almost a real-time basis, to what you are talking about. So link that to the forthcoming I.D. systems which have commenced for foreigners and airport security people, which can hold enormous amounts of data about any individual, and suddenly you have the capacity to determine what a person is buying, (RFID technology), what they bought yesterday, and it is but a short jump to determining how near they are to any pre-determined ‘limit’ set by some narrow-faced and -minded bloody woman who used to worship at the altar of Trotsky and Communism.
So enjoy your Chardonnay or Mersault, your Rioja or Cabernet Sauvignon, or even your Fosters or Guinness, because I predict that within a very few years, if this Fascist Labour government is returned by the sheep, we will be ruled by a narrow-minded bunch of bigots who will determine how much we eat, drink, and dispose of before the automatic penalties kick in! You might well say, “Tush, Exaggeration, Rubbish!”, but how many of you have paid speeding fines from automatic cameras set at accident ‘blackspots’?
