A lunatic Act

Quote of the day

Well Catherine Bennett in yesterday’s Observer to be more precise:

A week later, an indifferent Commons passed the bill anyway, hoping, as one idealistic speaker declared, that it would “work out as intended”. As an experienced scrutineer will appreciate, it depends what you mean by intended. Can an individual, or body of people, acting without thought, in a mood of crowd-pleasing over-excitement, amid a succession of equally superfluous and ill-considered acts, be said to have consciously intended anything at all? In an ideal world, there would be effective safeguards against such people.

An excellent article which reveals that the new Independent Safeguarding Authority will now cover 11.3 million of the adult population, all presumed guilty unless they can prove otherwise, and at their own expense too. She shows just how toothless some of our Parliamentary representatives are in allowing such legislation to find an easy path onto the Statute Book.
