The respectable and law-abiding are crushed by the wheels of bureauracy, which ignore the feckless and criminal! Here is this year's list of shame from the Daily Mail (where else?): The List of Shame top three: 1. Hilary Beach of Chepstow. What a clown! Fix bayonets, chaarrge! 2. Castle Bromwich - West Midlands Police. The boys in blue should be persona non grata at parades, receptions and in Legions throughout the West Midlands. 3. Sutton Parks Police Service. Fire them from cannons instead! [/quote] As an afterthought: is this a ruse to give the hapless minister an open goal?
