Talking of bleak and Torchwood…

This is from my friend Toby, over on Facebook, in response to my tweet / status update on how bleak Torchwood was:
What was bleak about Touchwood ?

We can only dream of a Britain where corrupt evil government officials almost literally do the honourable thing and fall on their swords….rather than the innocents who expose their lies …,

Where the government can overnight organise, TO THE MINUTE coordinated public transport for tens of thousands of people …. I mean have been on a train lately ? …. …

Where the police are willing to fight the army in the streets for the sake of the children …. rather than people caught up in a protest against global capitalism ….

Where the public are willing to beleive the government about both a national emergency AND the safety of a mass childhood vaccination …..
