I pointed out the other day :
"If Cameron gets his way we'll see the same sort of thing happening (with possession of knives) as happened with mandatory sentences for guns - retired head teachers, hikers and the like being banged up as police and prosecutors pick the low-hanging fruit."
The Dumb One points out it's already happening - not the banging up, but the arrests and harassment. The stories are depressing. We are ruled by idiots.
