I had forgotten that there is a referendum here next week.
Today I got yet another one of their glossy gubmint booklets explaining the whole thing to me. I would love to know just how much all this crap is costing me, via my taxes.
My attitude to the referendum is quite simple.
I couldn’t give a shit.
The purpose of the referendum, as far as I can gather is to amend the constitution to allow the state a bigger say in the upbringing of children. Even putting to one side the fact that I am sick to the fucking teeth hearing about our precious fucking children and how we must protect them from anything and everything, the whole thing stinks.
Point 1. The gubmint admits quite openly that it hasn’t a clue how many children have died while in its “care”. So far it is admitting to well over a hundred but we’ll never hear the truth on that one.
Point 2. Do I think it’s a good idea to give the state more powers? No fucking way. The gubmint has granted itself far too many powers already. Half the problems in this country can be traced back to the gubmint and the state fucking things up royally.
Point 3. If the gubmint care so fucking much about children, why are they cutting back on education and childcare allowances?
I have reached the point of complete burn-out. I really couldn’t give a flying fuck about the referendum and will certainly make no effort at all to vote. If I happen to be near the polling station on the day, I might call in but that is exceptionally unlikely. Even if I do call in, I can’t decide whether to vote no or just scribble on the voting card that they can go fuck themselves. Hard decisions.
Or maybe I’ll just post them a ballot paper quoting Grandad’s Law?
