Close your eyes and imagine this scenario: although no-one is particularly complaining about some vague and menacing-sounding situation involving children, the government has decided that it has to be seen to be doing something.
And given a broad range of possible options including making parents aware of things that maybe they hadnât considered through to the most draconian and invasive net snooping approach, which one do you think they have opted for?
Of course, itâs the most hectoring and nannyish of all options.
Now contrast and compare this with the entirely different government that ruled us for the preceding 13 years.
Of course, itâs impossible (apart from the f***-me shoes) to distinguish between Theresa May and Jacqui Smith, isnât it?
That currently violently exercised Labour activists werenât tolerant about this nonsense during the preceding 13 years is also telling.
There is no significant difference between Labour, Tory and Lib Dem policies. There is no difference between their mindset. All that differs is that the various supporters of the tribes get to yelp baboon-like approval or disapproval of the bullies in power based on the colour of their ties.
If youâre not happy with politics in the UK today, the most likely cause of the problem is the person who looks back at you in the mirror every morning.
