THE Granny Tax, the Pasty Tax, a cash-for-access scandal, the fuel fiasco , rubbish economic figures and being beaten in a by-election by George Galloway.
David Cameron’s got a lot on his plate at the moment to turn all that around.
Well you’d think so, but instead the Prime Minister, the highest politician in the land, is bothering himself with the length of Beyonce’s skirt.
As if the country’s not bogged down enough with rules and regulations, the leader of Great Britain – the eighth largest economy in the world – has decided to get involved in what is and isn’t sexy.
The man whose troops are dying in an unwinnable war in Afghanistan has come out saying he wants ‘sexy’ pop videos to be given an 18 rating if they show a bit too much flesh.
What next? Police armed with rulers to measure how far above the knee a woman’s skirt is?
Burkhas to be made compulsory in case someone finds a beautiful face arousing?
It is utter nonsense, Cameron is not trying to ‘protect our children’ as he claims, he is just pandering to a vocal minority who think women in anything other than dungerees and sensible shoes is a crime against God.
This is not the will of the majority. Any sensible person knows a pop star showing off a bit of cleavage isn’t going to bring about the end of the world.
Since the time of Elvis in the ’50s a bit of sauciness has gone hand in hand with pop music, and if the Tory leader really believes a flash of bum cheek on MTV is the root of all society’s problems he is clearly deluded.
Let’s hope the rest of the House of Commons give this move short shrift – before we end up with the religious police patrolling our streets.
