Johnny Shall Have a New Master

If you are still yet to be convinced of the government's intention to intrude upon the minutiae of family life, see this in the Daily Mail.

By the looks of things, we may well need to hold Alan Johnson (as quoted in post below) to his words.

HT: Annette - thanks for making me confront this. (I had been trying to pretend it wasn't happening!)

Drat, not satire.

I found this quote at the Tracking Children website:

"You do not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it would do and the harms it would cause if improperly administered."
-Lyndon Johnson

Here is a snip from the comments section on that article. This comment really catches my attention.

A governments job is to produce strategies that will create the framework to bring the best out in people. Encouraging people. Giving them choices and the FREEDOM to make the best choices that suit the individual.

Micro Management never works. Any good manager will tell you that.

Are they trying to create a generation of brain washed clones beholden to the great nanny state?

Lets then get them all on the national Identity Register database and monitor their every move. (end of snip)

We live in a world where all the good ideas are in fiction and all the bad ideas are in real life.

Goverments are providing a service to the people. They are not here to have us serve them and their utopic purposes.

We have to fire Mrs Hughes before she does more harm.
