So as soon as I'd clicked on the publish button on my last post a thought suddenly struck me. Have I done the right thing . Would the EU start to investigate me , would spooks start to look into my affairs, would socialists track me down and make me join a union, would the BBC put up my license tax (the wife refuses not to pay it) or would teachers corner me and demand back the education I had received. Would my phone be tapped , I can just imagine the transcripts:
Respondent: Get your fucking arse out of that pub now
T: Im just gonna watch this matc....
R No youre fucking not
T Aww come on love its been week.....
R Your teas ready and im going to the fucking Bingo
R Now I said
R If you are not home in half a fucking hour you know whats gonna happen
T Oh come on love you can't form a party that promises to overthrow by subversive means the EU and put on trial all the despots and leeches ,and after hanging them ,create a fair democratic and electable parliament, while Utd's playing City.
T Ok I'll be half an hour.
Maybe I was being paranoid, or maybe I wasn't. Maybe I was just being indecisive.
I knew I'd have my critics and sure enough an annonymong turned up. Maybe anon was Bob Crow maybe Andrew Marr or maybe Bill and Sian had joined forces to ridicule me, you see with anon comments its not really a level playing field when they can see what your ideas , thoughts and hopes are, but you can't see theirs. Ok I'll admit its quite easy to work them out after a while. I suppose I'm going to have to get very used to that.
Then I started to think about all the great free thinking blogs I'd read over the past few years or so. GOT, Leg Iron , Ranting Penguin , Old Holborn, Biased-BBC and loads of others . I thought well these people challenge the status quo and say a lot more subversive things than I've said. And they are still here. But then I thought maybe they just pretend to be like that to ensnare the emails and profiles of unsuspecting people and sell e'm to Mr Barrosso . Maybe they are sitting at a keyboard connected to a mainframe in a Brussels Office building , collecting data for the reaping times ahead, and to cap it all, being paid in Euro's ffs.
But then, maybe im just being paranoid after all. ; )
