The UK: Smothered into Submission
By A. Millar Created 2009-02-03 12:09
If the communist and fascist revolutions embodied the abusive, psychotic father, New Labour’s revolution is that of the overprotective, single mother, robbing her children of independence of thought, and monitoring their every action. The real world, after all, is a nasty, dangerous place, and everyone must be protected from it for as long as possible – preferably forever.
Big Mother – as we might call her – is terrified that any of her children should so much as graze their knee, and forbids “bad words.” “Islamist terrorist”? No, that’s just another “thug” committing more “anti-Islamic activity.”
Did that three year-old say “yuk” to unfamiliar spicy food? Well that’s one big indication that he’ll end up like Adolf Hitler – note that down as a racist incident nursery assistant!And, speaking of food, what if one of the little ones has a nasty reaction to something they eat? Don’t worry: Cadbury has recently included a warning on the label of its Dairy Milk Chocolate bar that the product contains milk. Another UK company is selling eggs, with the warning “contains eggs” printed right on the box. And the Asda supermarket chain is now selling milk with “warning: contains milk!” printed on the clear plastic container.
Not sure what “sell-by date” means? It’s a tricky one. Luckily six UK councils will be paying people to go into our homes, whether we like it or not, to explain it to us. They’ll also be inspecting our fridges while they’re there – just in case.
That may seem like smothering to you. But, there’s an up side to ‘Big Mother’: she encourages creativity. And two thirds of teachers acknowledge allowing text speak instead that old-fascist English – and that’s just “gr8!”Sex is something to be celebrated – so why wait? Children under thirteen are already being given condoms by some schools in the city of Manchester. And watch out for those sex education lessons for five year-olds coming to schools all around the country.And, one college for 14 to 19 year-olds recently hired poll dancers come in and show off their ‘talent’ – as part of their health and ‘fitness’ week. It’s racy, and inappropriate, but Big Mother did love the Sixties with its wild dancing and free love. So get with the program.
Perhaps the only really bad thing about Big Mother is that doesn’t really like other mothers, heterosexual marriages, or families – or grown-ups.
Of all government bodies, the “Social Services” is the most dreaded. (Though whoever created that authority had the foresight to make its initials SS.) While they have failed to take children into care that have been systematically tortured over months or years, they have nevertheless zealously taken others away from good homes, where no abuse has occurred. When a mother took her baby to hospital with a tiny bruise on his ear recently, Social Services came and threatened to have her arrested if she took her child home. According to The Daily Mail, a grandfather was imprisoned for two years because he spoke to his grandson. The boy had been placed in care, and had contacted his grandfather, saying he was being abused.
Now, it has emerged that Social Services has refused to allow two children, taken from their mother (recovering from heroin addiction), to be adopted by their grandparents. The authorities have refused despite fact that this is what the mother wants, and has pleaded for it. Despite the fact that she has said that they would make wonderful parents. At 46 and 59 the authorities consider them too old. She has diabetes (not a problem in this day and age), and he has angina (also manageable), so they’re also too sick, according to Social Services.
The family has fought the authorities for two years, and have endured emotional hell during that time. But, broken, they have now conceded to allow the children to be adopted by another couple. At the very least, this heartbroken family believed, the children should grow up with a mother and father. As the mother said goodbye to her children, her son, emotionally distraught, told her, “But Mummy, I want to come and stay with you and Granny and Grandad.”
Social Services have made the decision: Two married homosexual men – that the mother and grandparents have never even met – will be the children’s new family.
And because in their desperation the grandparents went to The Daily Mail, the authorities have threatened them, saying that they will never see the children again.
You would complain to your local MP. But Big Mother believes that we, her children, should be seen, but never heard.
