The Value of a Vignette
SOMETIMES a brief vignette can provide a more profound insight than dozens of weighty tomes, just as a great novel can explore the human condition better than any psychiatrist (which isn’t saying a lot admittedly). As such, this report encapsulates in its chilling simplicity the British polity’s catastrophic decline over the last few decades.
Teenager Joe Taylor was flagged for political extremism by his school’s deputy head after he used a school computer to click on the UKIP website. (Note that UKIP is a perfectly legitimate political party (for now anyway) that enjoys the support of about a quarter of the electorate). Joe had been researching immigration following a classroom discussion on the subject. Teachers called in the police on the basis that the kid had raised ‘welfare concerns’ by visiting a ‘politically incorrect’ (sic) website. And get this, he was referred to the police unit that specialises in preventing jihadi grooming of “vulnerable” youngsters (you know, the kind who go on to become enthusiastic beheaders).
I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised when the English have put someone like this in charge of their law enforcement.
The Britain of yesteryear has been destroyed. A peaceable, polite and reserved people once enjoyed probably the least oppressive society on earth, one policed by the friendly local bobby and where political freedom of expression was almost absolute. Like when HRH Queen Elizabeth II took over. This has by now degenerated into an Orwellian dystopia where a schoolboy gets hauled in by the police for what’s essentially Thought Crime.
Meanwhile the orc invaders breed like streptococci…..
