It’s your turn this time…

Who’d have thought it possible.

Dog walking has been banned or severely restricted in more than 3,300 parks and open spaces in just two years since the introduction of new asbo-style control orders nicknamed the “busybodies’ charter”, it can be disclosed.

The Kennel Club accused local councils of using controversial new powers to wage an unnecessary and unjustified “war on dogs and their owners”.

Obviously I condemn restrictions on age-old freedoms imposed by the pecksniff sub-human scum who occupy local government, but every time we see one of these stories, it has a silver lining for me.

Amongst the millions of dog owners will be a vast swathe of people who are enthusiastic about other people’s liberty being curtailed or interfered with, often vindictively so – smokers, drinkers, drivers, young people etc

There will be millions to whose lips sentiments like “this should be banned” or “the government ought to do something about that” come all too easily who are, this time, finding the overreaching state coming for them.

A handful – hundreds maybe, a tiny percentage – will reflect on this twist of fate, and pledge to think more carefully next time they are tempted to demand action from the state to interfere with someone else’s life.

But most won’t.

Most people will switch on Bake Off or Strictly in order to prevent anything so unsettling as constructive thought interfering with their state of self-absorbed imbecility.

Fuck those people.
