Quote Of The Decade

"The tendency of government has been to legislate for the sake of legislating. Bills have been rushed through in order to give the impression that action is being taken. However, many ills cannot be solved by legislation. Much legislation is drafted in haste and is not solidly evidence-based."
Ain't that the truth, Lord Norton!

But they can usually find some legislation on which to base the evidence ;-)
