The Panel 2016

This week’s Friday Flash Fiction effort…


In 2016, a new law was brought in. its jurisdiction was world-wide, but sneakily-worded legislation meant this was not clear.

It boiled down to: Every single comment you make on social media will be analysed by The Panel.

Who the f**k were the panel, wondered those who had noticed the sneaky legislation.

A booming voice: We decide if you are a threat. We know this because social media demonstrates your views perfectly and consistently at all times, and we work out your level of risk to national security.

[And taste.]

Watch out…
