I don't like coincidences. Sure, they happen, but when they are too many and too convenient, I start to wonder.

Here are some recent ones.

The Cameroids want to repeal the ban on foxhunting (but they still can't smoke in the pub afterwards). Shortly after they take control, we hear stories about foxes attacking children. Stories we haven't ever heard before. Coincidence.

More and more fake charities are being unmasked as Government-funded pressure groups. Islam has a rule whereby anyone with income gives 1% to charity. The Cameroids have considered this and are considering 'nudging' (forcing) us to pay 1% of our income to charity. unlike Islamic rules however, this is as well as, not instead of, all the other taxes. Then the fake charities can claim the money comes from 'public donations' which are in fact an extra 1% income tax but like NI, they'll pretend it isn't. All pure coincidence and speculation of course.

Oh, and if you're on benefits and cheering this extra tax, consider that it's on income. Your benefits are your income. You'll be paying it too.

One more. A clever one, if this new lot have an ounce of brains. The Cameroid-Clegg Collective are about to hammer public sector pensions. Businesses want the government to make it harder for unions to call strikes. The Collective refuses. Why? Well, the private sector won't be on strike. The public sector will and while they're on strike we can work out which parts people have noticed are missing. Those nobody notices are on strike can be immediately dispensed with.

It's what I'd do if I was in charge.

That 1% will rise to the Tithe level, and we will be forced to worship the state.

I'll revert to no income. It can be done. It's not easy but it is possible.

I wonder if we could do EBarter and Ebarter into existence a new currency?

Leg-iron said...

Ebarter can only work if you can barter with the internet provider.

That, in itself, is certainly not an impossibility.

Food for bandwidth? Paint that evil patch above the stairs for bandwidth?

You know, it could be done.

"Stories we haven't ever heard before. Coincidence."

This one's more MSM bandwagon-jumping than anything directed by fiendishly-clever foxhunting Tories.

you know, I nearly put the link between the Tories and the fox stories in my post, and then I thought "naaaah. can't be."
Now i'm not so sure. either that or foxes ARE getting bolder, as Sauron's power grows...

Or it could just be msm bandwagon jumping.

We need a distributed internet where everyone with a laptop or phone can connect to laptops and phones nearby.

I don't know what the public sector agreements are, but surely if they go on strike for 2.5 days then that's the equivalent of a 1% pay cut that year, as long as they don't get paid overtime to catch up on the work. Let's encourage some public sector striking, it will help the deficit.
