Government Completely Off The Rails

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Knowing our esteemed BTL crowd, I recognise that many of you have already formed the view that there is nothing to be expected from the present government.  Fair enough: like many others – millions, probably – when I voted for Johnson’s party in GE2019 I had little hope of consistency or integrity.

But.  Drafting a Bill so that “putting at risk of serious annoyance” qualifies as “causing serious harm“; and making that a criminal offence?  OK, sometimes these things are included in a Bill at an early stage for the purpose of abandoning them later as a concession.

(The grotesque mis-use of the word “harm” is a very modern, essentially leftist gambit, exemplified by the insistece that to state trans women aren’t actually women is to cause “literal harm“.  Obviously enough, it’s a malign attempt to co-opt the ethos of the physical HSE sphere, where all manner of things can readily be outlawed without further ado, leaving very little space for argument.)  

So, funnily enough, for the woke brigade this should be their ultimate wet dream: we know what runs the risk of “seriously annoying” them.  The only reason why they aren’t piling in behind this is that for the time being it would be Pritti Patel calling the shots.  Put that putative legislation into woke hands, however, and it’s the end for free speech: they are getting close to something similar in Scotland, too.  Hey, lots of things cause me serious annoyance too: but never introduce a dangerous weapon into a fray when it will promptly be turned upon yourself.

We know Boris is a populist clod; and Patel … well what can we say without risking serious annoyance?  But – Not Being Corbyn only takes a government so far.  Can Tory MPs put a stop to this nonsense?


PS: at the risk of causing further serious annoyance … where are those feminists who used to say that if only we put women in charge of everything, the world would be a much nicer place?
