Backlash: Kids! Who Needs 'Em?

Double buggies are such a menace in Islington. You can't move for double buggies.

How come I've never heard of the Islington twin explosion? Is Islington the new Midwich?

Me, I don't dislike children. It's just that I don't want to spend any of my time with any of them. I didn't much when I was a kid and nothing's changed over the past year. But would I feel differently if I had children of my own? Yes, then I probably would dislike them.

This programme shows a nice restaurant in a nice town which has banned children, a nice pub in a nice part of London which has banned children, and a nice caravan site in a nice part of England which has banned children.

I don't want to spend my time in the company of children so why don't I sample these places?

Because I'd rather spend my spare time in local adult-friendly establishments where the chance of getting battered is pretty high if you make eye contact with one of the ubiquitous local drunk psychopaths.

And I wouldn't want it any other way.

  1. Oh, and the presenter was so reasonable and balanced! I was hoping she would at least throw a glass of water over that really pious woman with six children who said that childless couples have empty lives just spending money and enjoying themselves (rather than bravely contributing to the world's overpopulation like her, presumably).
