Ah a cheerful, grey Friday morning; just the right time to award my prestigious, and world renowned, "Prats of The Week" Award.
This week it goes to the Home Orifice (so deserving, on so many occasions, I wonder if I should make this a lifetime "achievement award?).
Anyhoo, here is why I think they deserve this award.
The Home Orifice, in a naive and wasteful use of taxpayers' money have attempted to bring the "yoof" vote onto their side. They have set up a website (MyLifeMyId.org) for 16 to 25 year olds to express their views about identity cards.
I assume the "brains" in the Home Orifice thought that they would get a tidal wave of approval for the scheme; yet all they got in return is scorn, sneering and scepticism.
"The NIS is an authoritarian imposition on this country and places the desires of the state above the rights of the people. It will entail threatening the public and extorting money from them until they comply.
The biggest effect it will have on my life is to completely redefine my relationship with the state. Now I'll have to tell them everything about myself and will be forced to keep it up to date and will be responsible for it's accuracy while having no power to control how it's used/stored/accessed.
The state has all of the rights and I have all of the responsibility.
Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."
Good for the "yoof" of Britain!
Odd that the Home Orifice could make such a bad judgement call on "yoof" issues, given that our "respected" and "highly qualified" Home Secretary (Jacqui Smith) was a teacher (Home Econ was it?) herself.
Seemingly there was also a YouTube video featuring Jacqui Smith, which was meant to augment the website. However, it had its comments section disabled and now seems to have disappeared.
Fear not though, one individual resurrected it (and enabled comments):
Rest assured, because the responses have not been up to Jacqui's expectations, the government will ignore them and try to airbrush them from history.
The Home Orifice well deserving winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award for "Prats of The Week".
