The Dangers of Paying With Cash

Do you pay for things (eg your newspaper) with cash?

Do you draw your curtains in the evening?

Do you consider yourself to be a "quiet person", who doesn't necessarily talk to many people everyday?

You do?

In that case you might be a terrorist!

As such, given that we live in the Nanny state, your neighbours are duty bound to report you to the authorities.

That at least was the message being pumped out, until recently, by an advertising campaign put together by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) on Talksport radio.

However, having received a handful (18 I think) of complaints, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that it could cause "serious offence" and banned it.

In the advert, a man says:

"The man at the end of the street doesn't talk to his neighbours much, because he likes to keep himself to himself.

He pays with cash because he doesn't have a bank card, and he keeps his curtains closed because his house is on a bus route.

If you suspect it, report it.

Why not do what they do in all other petty dictatorships, get the kids to snitch on the parents?

    Hello, I am a terrorist.

    From now on I am going to completely baffle the police by keeping my curtains open, saying ‘good morning’ to all my neighbours and paying for my Daily Mail with my Visa card.

    Allah be praised!

  2. Nanny is trying to turn us into a nation of grasses or tell tale tits; When I was a lad, it was always deemed to be bad form to tell tales now, we have grass lines for everything and recently released figures show that many of those using these grass lines are making false malicious accusations against people that have crossed them in the past....Once certain accusations are made, it is often difficult to prove, yes you have to prove, your inocence.

    Regarding getting children to tell tales on their parents, its already happening in the schools.

    Just laugh at Hi-Viz.

  3. These are the fucking idiots that run the police force. Totally incompetent in the positions that they have been promoted to through political correctness.

    Not only are they potentially giving a ‘heads up’ to any terrorists by advising them (as if they don’t already know) to try to integrate more into their communities; but they also want their officers to be swamped under by thousands of useless ‘tips’ from the concerned public.

    I think the public should have more to fear from these incompetent wankers than from any terrorist cell.

    Gary, I used to fully support the police, but as things now are, I regret that I couldn't agree with you more. The judiciary are just as bad: they bend over bacwards to stand up for the rights of terrorists, murderers, burglars etc, whilst coming down like a ton of bricks on pensioners who cannot pay their council tax, or houseowners who stand up to intruders.

  5. I seem to remember attending a lecture some years ago about anti-terrorism issues. One of the topics was 'How to spot a terrorist' for want of a better description. The whole point of this was that it is bloody hard to spot terrorists. 99% of them are not wild-eyed fanatics or deranged loners.

    Instead, they will be the perfectly normal appearing family man who passes the time of day in the street and has a respectable job or the woman at the takeaway who gives you a few extra chips and is always happy to see you.

    Up until the point they carry out their act they do not want to draw attention to themselves and will probably have been in deep cover for years before they do so.

    I can just see the lecturer (probably long retired) with his face in his hands at the idiots who seem to have forgotten the basics of their training as they have ascended the chain of command.

    Much as I hate ACPO, they might actually have a point. Have you noticed that whenever someone goes berserk and embarks on a shooting spree, when the neighbours are interviewed on TV they always say "they were such nice normal people, always kept themselves to themselves"....
    Time to draw the curtains, and sharpen my knife ready for use tomorrow morning, when I silently offer 70p to the newsagent....

    This desire to set one group of people in society against another has become more and more common in this country in recent times.

    Seemingly something similar happened during the Weimar Republic just before the rise of the Nazis.

    A few weeks ago there was another one of those dubious reports which pass nowadays for academic research which concluded that people who own iPads are in some way bad people who don't care about others.

    Then there was the obvious attempt by Labour in recent years to try and create divisions based on social class.

    Recently a senior member of the police in Cambridgeshire tried to imply that exceeding speed limits was to do with social class.

    We receive a monthly newsletter from our local church which I read primarily to find out who's going to be judged this month. Last month it was people who own boats who seemed to be destined for eternal damnation.

    And now people who pull their curtains at night are also to be viewed with suspicion.

  8. Some of those reculsive, cash-paying "quiet types" may be, behind drawn curtains, developing their WMDs:




    In short, the weapons Nanny fears most.

  9. The moan goes on,yet people show a remarkable reluctance to do anything about it,as in demonstrations,voting for an alternative.these things are perpetrated against us because we allow them to,it seems to me that there are no more than five hundred people in this country with any guts at all,i have attended many demonstrations from poll tax,referenda on the eussr,to free speech,immigration,there seem to be more of the "few" who defended this country,in the last war ,than people willing and patriotic enough to defend thier right to thier own country and way of life,in consequence we all fall.
