One of the most obvious signs of a bureaucracy gone mad in Britain is the amount of time the Police have to spend on form-filling. This Red Tape seriously hinders their ability to catch criminals.
A new report seems to be accepting this, but does it offer sensible cuts in Red Tape? No. It suggests 90% of Police tasks in this area could better be done by civilians, releasing 3,000 Police back onto the streets.
No plans to cut the tape, then – just increase the bureaucracy. And how long would it then be before it was decided they could cut Police numbers? Not long I’ll bet. So here we go: another problem highlighted – and bad answer suggested.
