Orwellian

George Monbiot is being hilarious once again – how this article has been misinterpreted by some as not being ironic, I really don’t know (as he explains here, clearly not everyone is quite so bright as me…). Anyway, enjoy. And meanwhile – he makes a good point. Asbos, no-hood warnings, Mosquito buzzers… how come the government is essentially criminalising youth these days? Teenagers have perhaps always been a complete pain (personally I don’t think so but I suppose it’s because I can remember what it’s like to be one) but it’s only in the last decade or so that we’ve started to view them as a problem we should solve rather than just One Of Those Things.
