A Nation of Snoopers
The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) claims that thousands of children in the UK may be being unlawfully fostered, and could be at risk of abuse (that does not mean that the children are being abused).
The law requires that the state be informed if a child is looked after by anyone other than a close relative.
BAAF is urging people to report neighbours who are caring for children unrelated to them on a long-term basis.
Whilst their intentions may be good, this is another attempt by the state and quasi organisations of the state to turn us into a nation of snoopers and spies. It used not to be the British way to snoop, "grass" or tell on people.
I well recall my father drumming it into my head when I was a wee lad:
"Never tell tales on others".
That is a lesson that was once the norm. Now Nanny seeks to turn it on its head.
Societies that encourage members of the public to inform on others are dictatorships.
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.
Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.
Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
