Yet more evidence, if any

Yet more evidence, if any were needed, that the current British Government is crap, and excessively nannying: sports leaders slam Government plan. Reporting the presentation where the mandarins laid out the Government’s proposals to the leaders of the six biggest sporting codes in the country (athletics, cycling, cricket, football, rugby and tennis):

One slide said that encouraging young people to play sports could wean them away from crime and drugs. The next slide said that this could also mean we would get fitter criminals. As this message flashed on the screen, there was an audible gasp from the sports’ leaders.

Curiously, the Government is now reported to be back-pedalling as fast as Prescott’s stubby little legs will go.
