Rumours are, cameras are to be deployed in the UK to catch motorists throwing litter from cars. This comes following one council being caught following a three year old from school to see if her parents were cheating sending her there.
Doesn’t it just make you ashamed to be British! What the hell are we doing in this country? Pathetic petty officials will always try to have absolute power over us – it is the nature of the inadequate. But why do we allow it?
Why are we not hammering on the doors of local councils, reminding them that they work for us, not the other way round? Be warned, this sheepish complacency is the way totalitarianism comes. And if you think it can’t happen in the modern western world, wake up!
