I'm having another one of my 'Alice in Wonderland' moments.Jay
Why don't they just have feeding tubes that hook up intravenously at every desk and work-station, a water tube that runs into the mouth and down the throat, a pee tube that attaches from the front of the work seat to eliminate waste water and a poo tube that attaches similarly from behind to dispose from that end. Nobody smoke, nobody drink, nobody eat, everyone hooked up from the minute they arrive at work and then the higher ups can have a good strong feeling of control, which they need to self-assure themselves that nobody slipped out the back for a fag or bathroom break.Oops. I spoke in jest. Too bad. Now it will be picked up by mainstream politics and turned into an essential required mandate come the next time to introduce a ban or meddle in individual lives.Everything in the state, nothing without the state. Left wing paradise forever with the alleged right wing getting its chance once in a while just so they too can get their jolly's worth of what it feels to be in control - of every little thing imagineable.
Obviously they stop at nothing in their control freakery. Their previous attack was to insist that Burger vans have toffu and salads available even though no-one goes to a burger van for lettuce. It's a condition of their street vendors licence so the council are in control.Mind you, as always, it was fun plus ticking the best comments at the Mail site."Public Sector trying to offer advice on fighting sick note culture to the Private Sector? Lol wut?! The Ironicometer is overheating."
Words fail even me!!!
So, when is the revolution scheduled and will buttered popcorn be available?Even the suggestion of this should be raising an uproar. A friend of mine said that the UK wasn't a free country, this proves it. People generally get the sort of government that they deserve - R. HeinleinIt looks like you Brits deserve a totalitarian regime. Good luck with that. ;)
What an excellent idea. Then when it's established they can do the same with private home mealtimes. Imagine the fun when every dinner party and family picnic has to include a council inspector. You would meet all sorts of interesting people. Go for it!Or maybe not.
The first council worker who tries this at my work will get a punch in the face, if I'm feeling generous. Otherwise its a shallow grave under the compost heap - got to keep that organic veg patch fed somehow you know.
Yup, this is the Nanny state on steroids. WTF is next!You wanna see stupid, you should check out where I've been going the last month! They couldn't coordinate a 1 car funeral ;-)
It's rapidly approaching the point where we'll have to shoot the buggers out of self defence.WV hypedn LOL
Let hem put their own houses in order first please, particularly with the numbers of staff off sick.
In the name of god's Holy Trousers ! - even I, vivid imagination and intellect the size of a small planet (apologies to Marvin the Paranoid Android) didn't see THAT coming !!! ...@ Slamlander : " People generally get the sort of government that they deserve - R. Heinlein " - so horribly true, and so much of his 'Fantasy' has today become Reality ...
It’s amazing how being a target of the smoking ban has heightened my awareness of the subtle progress of the precedent which was set by the Health Act and is now being busily furthered by a whole army of now-legitimised-in-priciple for-the-health-of-the-nation enforcers. Some months ago, we got a new coffee machine at work to replace the old one which had broken. Now, this machine offers pretty much every variety of coffee you could imagine – espresso, normal white, normal black, hot chocolate and a rather weird combination of coffee and chocolate together which it calls “Cafechoc.” You can have a small, medium or large cup, a dash of whitener, a normal amount of whitener or lots of whitener, or you can have plain hot water for tea. But the one option which it doesn’t give you to have or not as you please is – you guessed it – sugar!
I'm not a God-botherer, but I think the expression "the devil makes work for idle hands" is apposite here.And there are a lot of idle hands in the state sector.
Lynne - we have nothing to shoot them with. Fortunately in Scotland we are still allowed to beat them to death with a whisky-soaked haggis.We'll use the cheap crap, of course.
This move would concern me if I ate anything at work rather than popping out the back lane for a tea and 2 fags on my breaks...
