Granny tagged for selling a Goldfish

Here is a wonderful story of bureaucracy gone insane.

A 66 year old granny has been convicted, electronically tagged and her son sentenced to 120 hours community service for selling a goldfish to a 14 year old in the UK, in a deliberate sting operation.  You can read the entire sorry tale here in the UK paper ‘The Daily Express’.

What I find is beyond comprehension is that government resources can be allocated to mount this sting operation and the same rigour is not applied to the MP’s who falsely claimed millions in expenses or the bankers who drove the economy to the brink of collapse, for the sole purpose of lining their own individual pockets.  I am beginning to understand how the French Revolution began.
