Honk if you find this image reassuring.

The United Kingdom’s Parliament kept trying and has finally done it–passed the “Online Safety Bill” (https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2023/09/20/uk-passes-online-safety-bill-creating-vast-list-of-content-moderation-requirements/).

Yowsah, yowsah! Three hundred pages of “content moderation requirements.” Three hundred pages of what you’re not allowed to say.

And if they could get inside your head and stop you from even thinking certain things, they’d do that, too.

Swing your arms proudly, coppers! Sure, it was dangerous, going after gangsters and murderers–but you can set that stuff aside now, you’ll be going after bigger fish. You’ll be nicking people who say the wrong thing online! You will be the phalanx standing between Britannistan and people who say wrong things!

The Mother Country will soon leave us orphaned.

    1. I can’t help feeling an attachment to the Mother Country, and a sense of loss when I see how her glorious leaders are abusing her. Besides… “Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”

  1. The land of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Austen, Dickens….. No, I can’t repudiate all that, and I can’t help mourning the loss.

    1. Britain was once the cradle of saints–Gildas, Kentigern, Columba, Bede–you can name as many as I can. I hope those saints will intercede for their homeland.
