The always-amusing Daily Mash finds the humour in what is currently outraging the naive across the British blogosphere. To me, the incompetence of the State is a "given." As most of my fellow-citizens seem inclined to surrender their (and my) independence to it, the incompetence of the British State is actually my only hope of one day living a free life in my own country. If you lived next door to a monster with unbridled power, wouldn't you be glad if it was short-sighted, forgetful and stupid?
The only surprising thing about this story is that anyone is surprised. Go smell the stairs in a public housing block. Go look under the bed in an NHS hospital. That which belongs to the State, belongs to no-one. Hertz or Avis will tell you just how much people care about anything that doesn't belong to them.
