Park Closing Soon
Well MacCrime, you want your National Park and you shall have it – but think about this: democracy would be something I suspect you hold dear. How is democracy served by a proposal being pushed through because other than the farmers whose lives and whose families lives depend on the outcome, no one else seems to give a hoot? It will go through not because of your vote, but because of your lack of one. Not democracy MacCrime – not one bit. Reflect on that. When you have to pay to park, when you have to fill in a form to walk, when you have to present your Personal Accident Policy to get into Donard Car Park, when Farmer Giles is entitled to remove you from his land (with reasonable force) because a bit of paper says so and when some child in a stripey uniform tells you what you can and what you can’t do, when the whole weight of this disgusting bureaucracy drives to your weary knees, peer out of the good eye left you and watch a large black carrion creature on the horns of a dilemma. Should he take your remaining lamp or not? When Peter Piper picks another peck, it would be a good idea if he keep ‘er lit because someone might just take the ground it grows in, out from underneath him.
