If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

I've just had a short wait in the local Out-Patients waiting room. Opposite me was a man of about 60, unshaven, dressed in tracksuit and anorak, with sandals on.

And a Bluetooth earpiece in his ear.

Why is a certain type of man so attracted to this kind of gadgetry? It's as if they are saying "I have so many friends/clients/MI5 contacts who need to get to me urgently, so I need to be permanently contactable, even when I am busy and using both hands. Now, please let me through." All they do is make you look like a taxi driver. Or a refugee from Star Trek.

And they remind me of something. What was it ... Ah yes, now I remember:


  1. You said so well! Funny.

  2. Thank you, HoH - and welcome to the blog. Thanks for taking the time.
