    Who Will Regulate the Regulators? - Times Online, UK
    There can be fewer bodies as detested by industry or as despised by an infuriated British public as the Health and Safety Commission. Barely a week passes without fresh examples of intrusive absurdities by a mollycoddling nanny State: vicars forbidden to change church light bulbs in case they fall off ladders, amateur pantomimes and school trips cancelled, Christmas decorations unaffordable because of a new ban on firemen using ladders for nonemergencies, and even, appallingly, a child left to drown in a lake because the police were forbidden to jump into the water without previous training.
