I have just returned from two months in chaotic, colourful, paradoxical Kenya. The contrast with the orderly, grey madness of the UK could not be more stark. No sooner back and I discover that some lobby group or other has decided that next Saturday is “Buy Nothing Day”. Apparently it’s a protest against consumerism and all things capitalist or something.
I never was a shopaholic anyway but I hate being told what to do by anyone, especially governments and lobby groups. So I will make a special point of going out next Saturday and buying something. It will be my protest against all those who want to run my life to suit them. I think it may time for a “Busy Body Go take a Hike Day!
