Gordo's next tax wheeze. Ooops. He will miss it.

This is another area where we start with the thin edge of the wedge. Something acceptable to most but with the capability to be expanded. First you introduce legislation that allows Brits to be penalised for legal sex abroad. Read here. It may be legal there but our government thinks it shouldn't be so we will prosecute and fine you here even though you have broken no laws. Of course this is OK because everyone knows it's for the children. You agree with it or you clearly are a monster and as it will only impact child molesters then you have nothing to worry about.

Of course it won't be long before it is expanded. We all know that looking at a gun never mind touching one turns everyone into homicidal maniacs. Five years for you if you get found out using one whilst on a holiday. Get caught speeding and the UK is notified. Then Gordo slaps on a fine as well. After all Johnny Foreigner hardly gives out decent fines. You need to be punished.

Sadly for Gordo he will miss the best tax grab he could get. One that would be free and would get him little media attention, although it would not get him much it will be virtually cost free. Phase 1. Once we all have little trackers implanted in our heads, coming to a UK county near you soon, they can be monitored 24/7. Then when you exceed the speed limit, no matter where in the world you are, you can be fined. Of course by then the fine will come directly out of your bank account. Phase 2. We will define for every road in the world our own speed limits and then enforce them. It'll be for the children some of these other countries have speed limits too fast for our H&S guys and even they are not properly enforced by a speed camera every 25 yards.

Anyway. Warning to you all. Be careful with the holiday snaps and video. Go digital and visit a cybercafe to FTP them home or upload them. Soon they will be the evidence used against you in a court of law. Especially if you are stupid enough to take them to Boots or Max Speilmans so their snoops can turn you in for handling a gun on your holiday in Texas. Naughty person that you are.

You can just imagine the future late night married couple conversations as wife logs on to the computer to check on husbands whereabouts from his implanted GPS and finds he is still in the pub.

I know it is unlikely, but it is scary. At what point do you get some privacy?

Uber, Still here. Mark me as present Miss.

well I can see the case for treating people who visit the USA with considerable suspicion - not quite the same sort of suspicion I always have of people who used to holiday in Thailand and now holiday in Cambodia or Veitnam.

Certainly I think the US is now so tainted that any european who visits it out of choice must be viewed as not one of us.

All these UK blogs I read make me very glad not to live there.

Sadly, should the little tracker actually be invented and instituted everyone will think it a great idea, because they have to be in touch 24/7.

I know why I remember visiting here before.
I enjoy my job which seems to be unusual in this day and age.
I always used to say my husband would go to work every day, even if they did not pay him. An exaggeration sure, but not much. I consider that one of the greatest gifts one can have in life. To enjoy one's job.

Gordo will miss the tax grab as he did with the gold.

Bag, awfully sorry not to get back sooner but we were structurally sorting things out. Can I take the user request as member request? We'd delight in having you.

Uber (1) The post was not really about that, as of course we all know that those perverts deserve it, it ws about how we are forcing our citizens to follow two sets of laws even where the contradict. It's the natural extension of our society.

JMB, It sure is. It makes me the happy soul that I am. :)

James, I've dropped you a note.

Uber (2), I'm sure your cheque is in the post.

Uber, I can't escape the truth of the matter. The article was about perverts. But remember some things that were classed as perverted 100 years ago were classed as being a bit kinky 50 years ago and acceptable now.

Bag- The article was about convicted offenders being brought before UK courts for breaching restrictions outside the UK, as a loophole.
