"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen"
Thank you George - it might have happened if you hadn't warned us.
It might still happen if we don't keep remembering your warning.
And sometimes I wonder whether it has already happened, and we just haven't noticed yet.
The Ministries of Peace are still planning wars.
The Ministries of Truth are still telling lies.
The Ministries of Plenty are still conserving resources for the few by depriving the many.
The Ministries of Love are still imprisoning, torturing and killing, 'in the interests of national security'.
And Big Brother is still watching us.
