And Then It's The First….

Well, here we are, it's the first of October. So what? One rolls round about this time every year, right? Right, but this one is the one when, whether it directly applies to you or not, we can all say goodbye to another little freedom of choice. Yup, no smoking in your car if kids are on-board. That's your car. The car that belongs to you.

Okay, in the grand scheme of things this is small beer but, nevertheless, it's one more freedom of choice gone and the grip of Nanny's icy hand round ours gets a little tighter.

I see the police plan to take a softly-softly approach to offenders. We'll see how that pans out when the penny drops as to the potential of the revenue stream opened up by  this new ban. Let's see how long it is before we get a bit of this.

Quote;  Adolf Hitler.

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”

            Virginia Woolf.

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”
