5.0 out of 5 stars The Lunatics are really in charge now!, 26 May 2010
This review is from: Bad Laws: An Explosive Analysis of Britain's Petty Rules, Health and Safety Lunacies and Madcap Laws. (Paperback)
The title of Chapter One says it all: 'The Theft of Common sense'. We now have an established elite consisting of politicians and bureaucrats who spend their time micro- -managing everything (to justify their jobs), thereby not allowing any of us to use our common sense. The politicians react to any situation by passing new Laws, when all that
is often needed is the enforcement of existing Law. It is the classic 'Appearance versus
Reality' situation: it is easier to appear to be doing something rather than actually doing
what is necessary. Any action that is taken usually penalises the law-abiding majority while sometimes letting the minority of culprits escape.

To compound the problem we now have another tier of unelected politicians doing the same,
passing Regulations and Directives that often have no relevance to Britain - I mean, of course, those gravy-train passengers in Brussels. But it will get worse - a further tier of unelected bureaucrats is being stealthily created in the name of bringing democracy closer to us: the Regional Assemblies.
