For the cheeldren.

I'm trying to keep up with Email tips. I'll always keep them anonymous unless the tipster specifically states otherwise. If I haven't blogged yours yet, it's coming.

This one concerns our government's concern with 'the cheeeldren' they pretend to care so much about.

Well... just read it for yourself. A suitable topic for Halloween because it doesn't get any scarier than this. I have heard about the 'contact sessions' and what I've heard matches exactly with this.

This part is special -

Another purpose of the system is to ensure that as many children as possible are adopted (at a cost of £36,000 per placement), in accordance with Tony Blair's personal commitment a decade ago that the target for adoptions in Britain should rise by 40 per cent. Councils are still receiving millions of pounds a year for meeting adoption targets.

Why did the Blur decree that adoptions must rise by 40%? What is the logic of that? Adoptions are necessary sometimes but why must there be a specific number of them?

The reason is money. Your children are worth a lot of money.

Not to you. To the deadliest, most unemotional and cruel machine ever created by man.


All your cheeeldren are belong to them. That's why they are important. Not for the future of mankind.

For the future of the Socialists' bank accounts.

We are all monetary units under Socialism. If Mr. Potato Head could see that, he might not be so keen to follow its path.

Who cares any longer WHAT Blair's 'personal commitment' was? Haven't they heard there's a new sheriff in town? there?

Not socialists. Tony Blair was not a socialist. The Labour Party is not socialist. It only pretends it still has the interests of "labour" at heart.

But I agree with you about bank accounts. The only way the government (of whichever persuasion) sees us is as economic units. Drive down the costs. Increase the productivity. Reap the rewards.

A truly horrendous and very harrowing story, and very apt for Halloween. The spirit of Matthew Hopkins is certainly alive and well and in 21st Century Britain!

I suppose I ought to repost a halloween comment from Mr Charles Stross, back in 2006:

[The scene: The Oval Office. The President (George Bush) is addressing the nation -- and the wider world.]

"My fellow Americans:

"I'd like to start by confessing to a minor, but necessary, deception. My published biography has up to now listed my highest academic achievement as being an MBA. I'd like to take this opportunity to correct the record by revealing that in actual fact it was a Masters' degree in social psychology. In addition, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for dissembling about my intelligence to you, over the past decade. Believe me, it has been hard work pretending to be stupid. However, I am sure that those of you who have spent the past six years disparaging my lack of insight will be relieved to learn that your President is in fact a former member of MENSA, and has a higher IQ than Richard Feynman.

"And now, for the key issue I'd like to talk about today. For the past six years, in addition to occupying the office of President of the United States, I have been working on my doctoral thesis — a large-scale empirical verification of the pioneering studies of Stanley Milgram and Philip Zimbardo. After consulting with my supervisors, Professors Cheney and bin Laden, I have concluded that the control phase of the largest ever experiment in applied social psychology has achieved its intended goals. We are therefore terminating the so-called 'War on Terror' with immediate effect. Thank you for you co-operation, which has been deeply appreciated. Those of you who have found yourself assigned to the 'reality based community' for the past six years will doubtless be relieved to learn that your performance has been excellent. I'd also like to ask for a warm round of applause for your 'winger' opponents, who have given sterling service in following their thankless (albeit lucrative) script.

"Finally, I'm very pleased to announce that the next phase of the experiment will commence shortly. Good night, and sleep well."
