The ghost of Uncle Joe Stalin smiles benevolently over their shoulders.
Well, Soviet Communist Young Pioneers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Pioneer_organization_of_the_Soviet_Union and German Nazi Hitler Jugend (Youth) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler_Youth
spied and admonished their parents, so why shouldn’t the United Kingdom’s Socialist kids do the same?
And it's up to the parents to say, "You are the child. I am an adult. You have NO power over me or, for that matter, over anyone. You only have power over yourself. I hope that you learn from my mistakes and choose to be *better* than me in this regard. If you have a problem with smoking, then don't smoke."
(Typing with hic-cups isn't impossible... only very difffficull-t!) ;-)
You know you love these.
You remember the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The U. K. should be urging children to learn about the constitution and the free market.
Somewhere Lenin, Mao and Stalin are high-fiving it.
Parents urged to chop the rugrats into pieces and feed them to the crows?
“Bad news, son. We’re not your real parents and if you don’t shut up we’re giving you back.”
Nanny State Ping.
I need more coffee.
Thanks for the ping!
Our 'Nanny State Cig Cam' catches Gabz in a pensive moment...
When the kiddies start paying the bills, then they can tell me what to do in my house.
Thanks for the ping, Gabz! You’d think Great Britain would have more pressing concerns these days.
This just in: a car full of cigarettes was found parked in front of the nightclub, Tiger Tiger! A carload of Asians puffing away on cigarettes crashed into an airline terminal at Glasgow Airport! Idiots...
Just what I was thinking. It’s the real world version of theso vile little “spies”.
