Mostly Bollogs, I'm afraid

But occasionally, a glimmer of truth.
If you find one, please let me know.

Sorry. I couldn't think of a better word.

Today I feel like Winston Smith at the end of the book. I think I might have to come out and say I love Big Brother, and submit to the grinning pack of statist tossers, for they have clearly won.

Yesterday the Conservatives announced the best manifesto, in my opinion, since I can remember. "Join us", they cried.

"Coo," quoth I, and "Gor Blimey."

I was chuffed. At last, someone had the balls to say what I think needed saying. Enough of this bansturbation, Big State Red Tape and such.

"Yay!" I cried again.

Then I listened to the BBC, Radio 4, Eddie and the team. They interviewed some typical fellow-countrymen.

Interviewer: "You know who David Cameron is?"
Idiot: "No."
Interviewer "He's the leader of the Conservative Party".
Idiot: "Yeah."
Interviewer: "What do you think of the idea of taking control of your own life?"
Idiot: "Innit."
Interviewer: "Would you be prepared to volunteer?"
Idiot: "I dunno, like, naah, don't fink so."

This was obviously an isolated incident.

This morning, Radio 4, Humph and the team.

Interviewer: "What about setting up your own school?"
Idiot: "Sounds good."
Interviewer: "Would you like to help?"
Idiot: "Naah, had too many nephews and nieces."
Interviewer: "Do you think it's a good idea?"
Idiot: "Naah, government does all that. I just get along. Other people can do stuff and think."

And I conclude one of the following:

  1. Big Brother has won. He has, in only 13 years, reduced us to the state-dependent idiocy that he wants us to be.
  2. The people who I now feel ashamed to call my countrymen have always been pigshit.
Both of my readers will know that I am not normally given to losing it and resorting to the rant. Nor targeting the unfortunate.

In this case, I make an exception. Fuck the lot of them. I give up. I mean it.

Kind of agree with you. It makes me despair when I see just how blind, stupid and worthless so many people are. Our kids can't remember pre-new lab days. When I think back to my youth I can't help but feel nostalgic for how things were.

I thought yesterdays manifesto was startlingly refreshing. But very brave. It could be ridiculed by people with little imagination or aspiration.

It also saddens me just hoe nihilistic so many bloggers seem.

Nail on the head UM...

I despaired when I read in todays Telegraph the polls not show only a 3 point gap.

WTF is wrong with people?
