If You Think This Is Freedom, You’ve Forgotten What Life Was Once Like

You may feel liberated if you like, but I do not. I can feel the forces of anti-liberation massing for another self-righteous regime of regulation and interference.

We have had one Year of Living Gormlessly. I fear we now face at least one more. And in the Kingdom of the Gormless, the intelligent person is in trouble.

If you think this is freedom, you must just have forgotten what life in Britain was once like.

There was once a time when you could go out to dinner and it wouldn’t feel like a post-mortem or a mad masked ball. There was once a time when you could just drop everything and head for abroad, with nothing but a passport and a small bag.

There was once a time when students studied at university, attending lectures and actually meeting their teachers. Schools were similar.

And there was a time when the yapping, hectoring voice of the BBC was not totally out of control. Now I have to listen to the Covid Commissar, Nick Robinson, on the Today programme, informing me that if I do not wish to wear a mask I have no common sense.

One of the results of the defeat of reason over the past 16 months is that you can state absolute drivel as fact on the BBC, and nothing happens.
