So It Was, So Shall It Ever Be

I've just come across this article from the Telegraph:

Definitive proof that the Bank of England saw the financial crisis coming

All the warning signs were there but nobody did anything....

Do you know, that reminds me of something that I have recently read in a book .... now what was it called again.....

sadly that isn't a surprise. We are the 'little people' they are the 'controlling people'.

We haven't a bloody chance without a full scale revolution.

even more sadly, this is England.

Revolutions just don't happen here.

I'm not surprised either..

yanno.i was thinking..

shouldnt electricity be free ?
I mean, back in the day it was just an didnt HAVE to have it..but now you're really not allowed to go without it, you're expected to have it and everything runs on it.
so it's like a necessity
doesnt this make sense ?

or am i just really sleepy ?

Well, you don't really need to have electricity. It is possible to live without it - it just wouldn't be particularly comfortable.

In the house that I lived in for the first 12 years of my life, we didn't have hot running water - or a bathroom, come to that. We had to heat up whatever water we wanted before we used it. It depends on what you mean by 'necessity'.

If all necessities should be made free, I'd rather start with food and water!
