Since the British Government devolved even more power to local authorities…some might say abrogating central government responsibility…several power hungry authorities around the country have wasted no time in flexing their new public order muscles by issuing Public Space Protection Orders relating to swearing in ‘protected zones’. I shit you not! Anyone who using what councillors consider ‘foul and abusive language’ will be hit with a hefty fine. No doubt ’eminent’ stand up comedians will be the first to test the water? Oh, I have it on good authority, all King James’s Bibles have been removed from council offices, and replaced with copies of George Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’, which has been used as a template to control the populations of most modern-day Western Democracies!
