Teenage curfews - Sally's Journal
Minors don't vote, ergo there is nothing to stop government putting them all on the electric chair if it so desired. The biddies would probably approve of such a scheme ("ooh young man! i don't like the look of you you look... young!") and they are the biggest force at the ballot box.
I've just discovered that my perfectly legal and very feeble air pistol is now subject to me owning a firearms license while in Sussex or I'll have to spend a minimum of five years in the clink. How did I find out about this? From the local newspaper that I was in the process of putting in the bin. Turns out I have until the end of the month before I'm sent off to the Ministry of Truth for re-education. Rule Brittania, eh?
