The lunatics are running the asylum

Over in the UK, it appears that we are just one step away from requiring a criminal background check to be a parent…

A woman was prevented from taking her own son to school because she hadn’t been screened for a criminal record.
Jayne Jones had been escorting 14-year-old severely epileptic Alex each day by taxi, taking specialist equipment with her in case he had a fit.
But the mother-of-two was told she would not be allowed to continue doing so until her details had been run through a Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check.

More here. Yes, I know it’s the Telegraph, but they’re not making this up. Indeed the bureaucratic drone that they quote sounds quite unapologetic for this totally imbecilic policy.
