The Nanny State
The economy is on its knees; the authority of Parliament has been seriously undermined by revelations of sleaze and greed by dishonourable members. And what is Gordon Brown’s big idea to save the country? He wants the Police to consider walking people the last mile home if they feel unsafe!
No wonder Tony Blair didn’t want to let Brown have the top job. It frankly beggars belief that the Prime Minister of our once great country thinks such a ridiculous idea has merit.
Of course if this plan ever sees the light of day, the Police won’t be able to carry your shopping for you unless they have been specially trained by Health & Safety officials.
Whatever next? A hotline to report cones on the motorway?
