Shropshire Star: Website has shades of Orwell’s 1984 about it

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

This is in tonight’s Shropshire Star …

Website has shades of Orwell’s 1984 about it

I was pointed in the direction of the npower website and was both shocked and disturbed by their low carbon economy section.  In this section npower encourages children to keep a diary of “climate crimes” committed by their parents and to challenge them to change their ways.

They even have a Climate Cops pack for schools to indoctrinate our children in the ways of eco-extremism.  Anyone who has read George Orwell’s 1984 will immediately recognise the tactic of recruiting children to spy on their parents.

Orwell intended his book as a warning, not an instruction manual.  The day my children come home from school and tell me they’ve been told to keep a diary of my “cliamte crimes” will be a very unfortunate day for the teacher that told them to do it!

    When they are asleep!

    That will keep them under control.

    I think that’s probably classed as cruel and unusual punishment under the Hague Convention.

    I gather God\Margaret Thatcher\Lord Vader\Jim Kirk has ‘blessed’ you with ginger pubes?

    Are you aware that many chemists and cosmetics stores have an accepttable solution to your unfortunate social stigma, hair dye! ‘Just For Men’ may be the answer for you, I know it says it is for grey hair but really we all know it who and what it is for.

    I’m sure if we look through our history books, we will find many ginger people have been involved in worthwhile activities and some may even have contributed in a positive way to the growth of civilisation!

    no sadly the irish want to distance themselves from the ginger gene.soon there will be concentration camps for gingers!

  11. axel (1214 comments) says:

    Concentration camps?

    Will that not just encourage you to put your willies into each other and make ginger babies?

    Are we not likely to soon encounter an Uber Ginger menace?

    I prefer the old way of pointing and laughing at you in the streets and indoctrinating children about your unhealthy, unnaturally painful sexual practices.

    I’ll bear that in mind CherryPie. 😆
