>> A tiny minority of fuckwits will wish to fly their drones wherever they please, the majority of drone owners are sufficiently sensible

This is pretty much a template for British government policies down the years. Insert almost anything you like for "XXX":

1; A tiny minority of fuckwits will wish to XXX, the majority of XXX are sufficiently sensible

2: Government outlaws/licenses/legislates XXX and completely ruins it for the majority of sensible people

3: Minority of fuckwitts ignore bans/licenses/legislation and carry on their XXX fuckwittery as before

4: Government makes wodges of cash from licensing / prosecuting / taxing sensible people who still want to do XXX

5: Amount of undesireable XXX activity unchanged.
