ET Killed by the PEL system Part 2 (93* d) RE: Killed by the PEL system Part 2 22 Jan 05

On Channel 4 tonight was an excellent 30 minute programme called "We are all criminals now". It was about the wealter of legislation, rules and regulations and the army of busyboides that back them up - getting worse by the day - did you know it was an offence to despose of office paper in a domestic dustbin - presumably some official will be round inspecting you bin!

The programme concluded, rightly, that the English, who are generally law abiding, will be so sick of being criminalised for no purpose, will envetually rise up against this!   I have e-mailed the programme pointing out additional offences - pub pianos being played without a licence for example or darts matches to entertain without a licence.

The programme pointed out that it could not get government ministers to acknowledge this flood of legislation - much of it is cast down to local authorities whose petty officials run amoke!
