A thought for the end of the year ...

I spotted this on The Gorse Fox's blog and think it bears reposting, especially at this season. It certainly ties in with several discussions and posts made by myself and Josephus in recent weeks. It touches on a number of things that contribute to the state of our nation today. 
An ageing Church of England vicar has, apparently, produced a new version of the Ten Commandments and suggests they be hung in the BBC News rooms. 
1) Thou shalt take heed of the atheist prophet Richard Dawkins and not worship God at all. 
2) Thou shalt promote the images of celebrities which thou dost worship. 
3) Thou shalt take God's name in vain. 
4) Remember the Sabbath day to shop until thou dost drop. 
5) Take no notice of thy mother nor thine absent father. 
6) Thou shalt kill the embryo in thy womb, for it would be an hindrance to thy lifestyle, init? 
7) It was said afore time 'Thou shalt not commit adultery' but I say unto thee that thou should'st put it about a bit, like. 
8) 'Thou shalt not steal' being virus chapeau, thou mayest fiddle thine expenses. 
9) Thou shalt grass up neighbours to the Thought Police if they utter such that be racist, sexist or discriminatory. 
10) Thou shalt covet thy neighbour's wife and even his slag, his iPad, his Rolex and his Ferrari and everything that is thy neighbour's. 
This seems somehow appropriate and certainly would explain the focus of TV programmes that seem to glorify and promote all that is seedy.
