A Modern Horror Story

Natalie Solent tells a tale of procedure and rules run amuck. I'd like to think that it couldn't happen here, but I'm afraid it already is. Jobsworth is fast become an international icon.

My personal belief is that bureaucracy and an excess of government is what killed off the dinosaurs.

Radical Muslims don't need to get violent. In another fifty years, we'll be begging to be taken over to save us from red tape!

Oh I agree. If Osama Bin Laden were truly intelligent, instead of a jumped madman with a lot of cash, he would have just waited. At the time of 9/11 the USA was disengaging from our international commitments and drawing down the military. Europe was blindly ignoring it's own imminent demographic death. Not everyone is awake now. But a lot more are, than were in days past.
