I found this article amusing: Home Office chided over ‘hairy chest’ policy
A LEADING chief constable attacked the Government’s “hairy chest” approach to law and order yesterday after Tony Blair announced a series of Home Office measures to tackle crime.
Terry Grange criticised the constant introduction of new legislation which, he said, was done without planned thinking and was based largely on the need to respond to critics.
Boy, if that isn’t a description of politicians’ approach to crime legislation in general!
Of course, you might as well call it the “My dick is bigger than yours” approach, which is immediately countered by “No, I’ve got a big one, too.” It’s impossible to be smart on drugs or crime when the brain has been shut off and the members of Congress are busy comparing… members.
