"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Proof If It Were Needed

We'd best get used to it. In a time when councils are cutting services and the police are in line for a 20% cut too it's mind-boggling to see that they can still connive to come up with schemes like this:

Police roadblocks to catch smokers in company cars.

"We will be looking for ashtrays and whether the vehicle smells of smoke... We will use the month of March to carry out inspections, offer advice and generally try and make sure people are aware of and compliant with the legislation."

Yes, that's it - we must be compliant little sheeple.  The Freedom Bill means nothing.


  1. Wouldn't they be better occupied trying to get the dangerous drivers off the road? Or is that too difficult for the modern copper;)

  2. Lots of things seem to be too difficult for some of them, perhaps a cut in numbers isn't such a bad idea after all - the trouble is it could be the good ones who go. I wonder which frontline services the council are cutting while they find money for stupid things like this. Smelling cars & checking ashtrays indeed!
