The State Is Perfectly Happy To Upset People…

…providing they are the right people:

It can’t feel particularly pleasant to have that letter drop on your doormat, but the NHS has issued templates to local authorities, stressing that they should be “non-judgmental” and “positively phrased”. The potential to perceive judgment can never be entirely eliminated, though; some parents clearly feel that their parenting choices are being inappropriately questioned by the state.

But it seems ridiculous to suggest that we refrain from giving parents critical information about their child’s health for fear of upsetting them.

That’s Sonia Sodha, writing in defence of that State’s ‘right’ to tell parents how to bring up their children.

The same State that failed to act in Rotherham, for fear of ‘upsetting people’. I don’t know about you, but that sticks in my throat far more than a Turkey Twizzler.

    Sodha? another one………….and empty headed Socialist echo chamber, she’s incapable of summoning up a coherent rational thought – so she just churns out that pap.

    Sodha, is though just one among the many and never do they ‘the sisterhood’ ever…..mention Polygamy, Wife BEATING, RAMPANT SEXUAL GROOMING of minors all over Britain plus; FGM etc.

    God strewth and… all the time vacillating between whatever the Twatterati, Mumsnet-SWP believe to be true -that particular hour

    I”ll be willing to bet good money that Sodha was shouting and rallying people to the cause and on the Bliar’s side when, the wise one’s wouldn’t reveal whether their lastest spawn had been given the MMR jab.

    Hypocrisy……

    Yeah hypocrisy now I could maybe forgive. But as God is my witness; it’s the lying and their ‘do as I tell you to’ arrogant pugnacious way with it – that sticks in my craw. Well sufficed to say, my loathing of the north London wankerati will be eternal, at least until I trip orf anyhow.

    What did we do to deserve this set of poisonous ‘to the manor born’ Socialist fuckwits?

    Who gave these Marxist journo divs permission to tell us what to do and how to do it?

    I mean it’s not as if anyone reads the fucking Grauniad – now is it?

    This problem isn’t helped by the fact that not one single MSM journalist does his/her job. The other day the obesity industry issued a press release claiming that two thirds of eleven year olds were obese or some such crap. This was parroted without a shred of critical analysis by the MSM. Fake charity invents problem in order to embezzle even more taxpayers’ money would surely have made a more interesting news story.

    But if it saves just one child from…….

    How about me. If ‘x’ can save just one knackered old shit from gasping for a tin of pipe tobacco that doesn’t have a warning on it that smoking may harm unborn babies (as if expectant mothers are given to smoking pipes)(and as if the govt dept down the corridor isn’t financing abortions), then why can’t I have ‘x’ provided to me as a benefit? Eh ? Eh?
