Quote of the Day

"If you have ten thousand regulations, you destroy all respect for the law."

(Sir Winston Churchill)

Its a real problem that.

So instead we remain part of the EU, and enforce ten million regulations instead, like, that will solve the problem.

This kind of explains why I find it hard at times to resist banging my head repeatedly on the wall.

I thought Churchill's point was very apposite both to Britain and to the EU.

If we stay in the EU we need to try to get the European institutions not to pass too many regulations.

Whether we leave or not, we need to fight against the temptation for British legislators and those who can impose other rules such as statutory instruments to impose too many rules made right here in Britain.
