Laws, Rules & Regulations

by Julia on 31 March, 2008

I just left my friends house where we were discussing the state of the country today (as you do), and something was said that really resonated with me and I felt was worth blogging.

We were talking about the amount of red-tape and over regulation that exists today in this country for just about every aspect of our lives. This is something I’ve been reading about in an amusing, yet worrying book entitled “How to Label a Goat” by Ross Clark. (I highly recommend by the way!)

Anyway, my friendĀ  said:

“The trouble with the law today is it’s like a house with central heating. The Govt. have added more and more pipes to an existing adequate system, that simply allows for more leaks, more creaking and it’s harder for the heat to get around.”

Pretty good analogy isn’t it!
