Who governs has become ever less a concern to me. It’s like living in a timber-framed house infested by voracious termites which threaten to bring down the roof at any moment. The only option is to accept the inevitable and live outside.
Don’t bother trying to be an independent entrepreneurial producer and forget aspirations, because all it will get you is a faceful of ugly jealousy and a massive tax bill.
Don’t rely on the NHS: get a good diet, stop drinking/smoking and get down the gym.
Don’t bother sending your kids to state schools: they will emerge lobotomised or mentally ill. At best they will be convinced to take out an enormous loan to get a media degree.
Don’t bother spending money on a nice car: if the cameras don’t get you, the ever-increasing green taxes and overcrowded, crumbling roads will. Even if you park it somewhere, don’t expect it will be in the condition you left it when you return. There are no police on the streets, so expect it to be stolen, vandalised or broken into.
Don’t bother going on holiday because of the time spent being crowded like cattle into what can only be described as a dry run for concentration camps; you will be felt up by buffoons with an IQ of 6, your baggage tipped across a counter whilst a drudge rifles through it in a pair of latex gloves. Refuse and those latex gloves will be employed with far greater effect.
Don’t bother trying to save that hard-earned green stuff. The state will certainly penalise you for saving and will try grabbing a chunk as soon as you turn your back. They will siphon it away by stealth through inflation even if it’s in a savings account.
Don’t bother buying a TV because the state will sting you there as well. You will be forced into paying for propaganda that you won’t watch because it is clearly aimed at the sort of people for whom free speech is offensive and at the hypocritical for whom hate is hateful.
Don’t bother voting because things won’t get better no matter which pack of sycophantic, prestige-grabbing freeloaders get their grubby mitts on the levers of power.
Don’t bother voting in referendums on important issues because the elite for whom these politicians work will see to it that you won’t get your way. Indeed you will be punished. You will be forced to spend more taxes and you will be considered a guilty, bigoted stealer of youthful opportunities.
