Tony Blair hasn't seen Serenity*

Could England get any worse? Seriously, if we have any overseas readers (or more than three or four) can you explain how you have grown so weak in the face of government. Check out this "secret plan," bunch of idiotic bastards:

Babies could be vaccinated with brain-altering chemicals to stop them getting hooked on drugs and cigarettes in later life.

Newborns would have jabs which could prevent addiction to cocaine, heroin or tobacco, under secret Downing Street plans.

Details of the extraordinary proposal to stop the annual £20 billion cost of drug misuse are in a leaked No 10 policy document.

Scientists have already developed a drug called naltrexone that eases heroin withdrawal symptoms. A cocaine vaccine called TA-CD has now been developed, the document says.

Ministers could also crack down on drug dens by having the post scanned for supplies using modern technology, while police helicopters would use revolutionary laser radar systems to test the air for chemicals used to make drugs.

The document, reportedly being considered by Tony Blair's working group on crime, talks of "immunotherapies" developed in secret to protect a generation.

It says: "A young person could be immunised and the drugs would never reach or affect the brain. Drug-related crimes could be reduced if vaccines can be successfully developed to reduce the craving."

Also, babies would have "jabs?" That's your word?

I love government imposed utopias. Seriously, is Joss Whedon writing their proposed legislation so that he can get a sequel to Serentity made? I can't imagine a legitimate reason to potentially subject babies brains to vaccinations that we don't know the potential effects of. Maybe the babies won't crave drugs, but they also won't crave getting up in the morning or studying or anything really.

* A brief explanation of the title. In Serenity, Joss Whedon created a plot whereby the ruling government secretly put a pacification drug in the air on a newly colonized planet. The citizens on that planet, after breathing in the chemical mostly laid down and died. On about a tenth of the population, the drug had the opposite effect, creating a vast number of people who were hyper-agressive. It's a good movie. You should buy it.
