Nanny Airbrushes History - 1984 Comes To Liverpool
My commiserations to the good people of Liverpool wrt the numpties they seem to be saddled with in their local council.
Liverpool city council have decreed that smoking is evil, and the members of the council are so keen to suck up to their mistress Nanny that they have decided that all films with smoking scenes should be classified as 18 (adults only).
In order for them to get away with this "1984" style sanitising of history (Winston Smith spent his days destroying anything that may have contaminated the state's version of history), Nanny's lickspittles in the council are conducting a "consultation exercise" whereby "stakeholder" organisations, community groups, businesses, members of the public aged 18 and above, and under-age "stakeholders" will have the opportunity to give their views.
Needless to say, the council will then rig the "consultation" in order to ensure that the results will validate their desired outcome.
I would point out that by making smoking "adult and illicit" merely makes it seem all the more attractive to the young. Let's face it, porn, drugs and drink are all pretty popular with the yoof of today; no small measure due to the fact that they are classified as "adult" or illegal.
The other point is that the council will be cordoning off some film classics from youthful eyes, eg Casablanca, The Marx Brothers etc.
Sanitising history, in order to comply with a modern day fad, is as odious as rewriting history.
I trust and assume that the members of Liverpool Council who support this odious idea are expunged from the council at the next election.
Not coming soon, not to a cinema near you:
- films with fat people in,
- films with men doing heroic things,
- films that mention Christianity,
- films with people drinking.
