I have spent a good part of today tidying the garage and have achieved the rearrangement of the mess into an entirely different mess. So, not a total failure but not really a success.
The big news is of course the by-election at Rochester. Have UKIP now managed a second MP? I hope so, but we won’t know for sure until tomorrow. So let’s talk about the Fat Controllers.
Not the railway boss of Thomas the Tank Engine fame. Not someone fat who is in control. No, I’m talking about those who want to control fat.
Why do they want to control fat? Well… um… there is no real reason other than to make themselves feel as if the world gives a fuck about their existence. Really, if someone else is fat and you aren’t, what’s the problem? Fat people don’t care if you’re thin so why are you so damn worked up about them being fat?
It’s a familiar target pattern, isn’t it?
Those of us who smoke have never been bothered about those who don’t smoke. We have never tried to make anyone take up smoking. We are happy to let you live your lives as you like.
Those of us fond of a tipple or twenty have never cared about forcing anyone else to join us. We like the booze. You prefer tea? No problem.
Fat people have never berated thin people for the emaciated state of their bodies. ‘You can see your ribs? Oh, that’s disgusting’. Never happens.
The other way round though, it’s different. It’s okay for antismokers to openly abuse smokers. Puritans abusing drinkers (including those puritans who drink the better class of booze)? Fine.
And if you want to be snide to a chubby, well that has been fine and dandy for a while now. The latest from @theMorrigan1972 on Twitter is no surprise.Neither is the ‘new’ idea of using lies and made-up numbers to add a further layer of control to our lives. Funny how all those numbers are pretty much the same, isn’t it? No imagination, you see?
We are not supposed to object. We are not expected to retaliate. We are expected to cave in and do as we are told.
We aren’t supposed to vote them all out at the next general election… but we can do that.
And if we have any sense left in this country at all, that is exactly what we will do.
Probably won’t happen though. Too many idiot drones…
