For the past few weeks I have been considering what to write as a final blog post, when I checked the (former Wikio) top political blogs list to find myself in the Top 100 for the first time, at number 98.
When I was regularly blogging a few years ago and attracting hundreds of comments I was perpetually stuck between positions 101 and 200, so I don’t understand how I have suddenly “made it”.
It could all be about possible new “metrics” which the boffins have devised to entertain themselves and earn some overtime.
Or maybe lots of bloggers have given up, like I intended. I have reached the point where I seem to have said the same things a dozen times and for what?
I know a lot of bloggers who really care about the state this country is in and hope to change things by writing about it or just need to get things off their chests lest their heads explode with frustration.
Some have rounded up online posses who discuss, often, single issues like the smoking ban and all the associated control freakery which has passed into law via the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) and the spread of this people-herding into other areas, like alcohol and food.
Because they have been herding us like cattle. One day they will insist on branding us like cattle too, with an implanted microchip or a barcode tattoo or some other device.
When the General Election results came through that Cameron;’s “Conservatives” had won an overall majority and that all but three Scottish seats had been won by the SNP, the worst control freaks I know of in UK politics, I decided it was definitely a good time to cease blogging, because after all these years of online activism (which began years before I started this blog), the masses still want to be ruled by their persecutors. They will pay a premium for designer RFID chips.
I have no idea how many bloggers think to themselves that people in high places will read their opinions and grumble to themselves and admit they got it wrong and set about changing things.
I used to think that by commenting on politicians’ blogs they would finally understand the real world and shrug off the European federalist, nanny state, multicultural disaster they helped create, in which there are so many healthist and safety regulations they expect us all to live as long as our forebears in antediluvian times, i.e. over 900 years old.
Then some of them complain that people are “living too long” and are a “strain” on the NHS, despite attempts to kill off people through lack of basic hygiene, the Liverpool Care Pathway, misdiagnoses by overworked staff, general neglect and of course, abortion.
I will try and write a few posts this week and if I drop out the Top 100, the blog gets it!
