Ive a question for the commenters. Would more toys like this mean more people grow up to be libertarians? Today’s Meccano is a few types of small coloured plastic crap, for about £125 a box, compared with this which looks more like what my dad used to play with.
I think bigger sets with more ambitious instructions and more interesting parts, would make children more inventive.
This is a Canadian model.
If children were taught to think more and earlier, perhaps they would go more for liberty and not just get sucked into socialism? What do you think? heres a poll:-
Sometimes we here, on whichever of the duty-typwriting squadrons is on “watch”, are tempted to emulate the language of Obnoxio The Clown, or the Devil himself. (He’s uncovered a previously unstudied State-Bogus-Charity in that one…Obnoxio’s latest just refers to some bureucrat or other as a c*** . )
But this is a family blog, so, apart from saying shit and crap which is rather weak playground stuff now, we only go so far as to merely write f*** (sometimes even c*** these days.) And also we only show pictures of Keeley Hazell wearing bras (until we get bored with her and we go and get someone else. Possibly Lucy Pinder – anybody got any preferences? See poll below. If in doubt, go here and select someone else.)
To get back to the point, the government is bust, the main world’s private banks have feverishly bought themselves into virtual bankruptcy by queuing for 15 years to buy each others “securitised” pigs-in-pokes, Gordon Brown is printing money….and then they all go and spend it on what? Food-police. Here’s an exerpt:-
Home cooks will also be told what size portions to prepare, taught to understand “best before” dates and urged to make more use of their freezers.
The door-to-door campaign, which starts tomorrow, will be funded by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), a Government agency charged with reducing household waste.
The officials will be called “food champions”. However, they were dismissed last night as “food police” by critics who called the scheme an example of “excessive government nannying”.
WE MUST ALSO BEAR IN MIND THAT THIS IS ! “ALL ABOUT PROPERTY RIGHTS” ! People who have purchased food are entitled to dispose of it how it pleases them. The bought food DOES NOT become State Property: it belongs to the householder.
No bureaucrats yet come round to tell you not to throw a brick at your Wireless Tele Vision, thus rendering it at least partially if not fully unserviceable, whenever Jonathan Ross come on screen: why should they come and tell you what to do with food whiche displeases you?
It’s all very sad: it’s as if the poor government buggers just can’t kick the gravy-train (sorry) habit, even when there’s really no money, as opposed to just the appearance of no money.
There are poor-people out there. Some have run out of money, others have banks which have imploded: all owing to the sort of shysters and mediabuggers who idolise (more) regulation of banks and money-trades, who revere stalinism, who promote redistribution (of poor-people’s money), who force dis-education (on other people’c shildren), who laud the erasure of civilised culture, and who adhere to the pre-capitalist-barbarian cult of enemy-class-celebrity.
50Kg of 18-Ct gold is worth, at a rough go, upwards of £500,000. Not counting the copper or silver. Yep. Of course…..if distributed among the world’s “poor”, each one would get about 0.00001p. That’s not the point. “It sends the wrong message” – to pick up an enemy’s weapon. Anyway, it’s of some young woman called “Kate Moss” (who’s Kate Moss?)
I'm famous for being famous.
Ummm……is it my imagination, or is that a “sex”-position in which fascist feminazi lefties and other such vermin like to imagine that a woman is being f****d? The problem with the female’s legs and thighs too wide apart at the groin, is that the male can’t feel anything, while thrusting, the frenulum cannot respond (connected as it ts to the brain) and no orgasm and thus no conception will therefore occur.
