Off to my company summer 'do' tonight, the general thrust of which is to thank around 50 of our employees for a successful year by allowing them to gorge on fine food and get royally shit-faced at our expense. It's only polite that I join in. Merely for the good of the firm, of course.
In the meantime, this article at Boatang & Demetriou is essential reading.
This is modern Britain in a perfect nutshell. The real transgressors and haters of liberty and fairness are given a blank cheque, while the rest of us are easy meat for the new generation of Orwellian chieftains and rule makers.
Decent, normal, respectable people who care about individualism are derided and chased out of town. They are easy meat. You, and I, are fodder for the jobsworths and the pious - people who love to feel superior and impress power over difference and choice.
It's one of those which makes you happy that you are not alone in despairing at modern Britain, while simultaneously making you weep in exasperation that there doesn't seem to be any political will to return the country to a civilised state.
Enjoy while my liver attends his appointment with Dr Al K Hall.
