Oh, that silly Orwell!

That stuff from 1984 will never happen!

Thousands of the worst families in England are to be put in “sin bins” in a bid to change their bad behaviour, Ed Balls announced yesterday.The Children’s Secretary set out £400million plans to put 20,000 problem families under 24-hour CCTV super-vision in their own homes.

They will be monitored to ensure that children attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals.

Private security guards will also be sent round to carry out home checks, while parents will be given help to combat drug and alcohol addiction.

Oh, sure. They’re gonna start with the “Baddies”.

Then they start finding more and more reason to declare people “Bad”.

Shortly thereafter, you’ll report to your television every morning before work and evening before bed.

But don’t worry. That book was just fiction, citizen.

    I’ve always said that I thought Orwell was an optimist.

    Actually the comment will be “1984? Isn’t that when we went to war with Pacifica?” followed by “Orwell? Who is he?”
