Re: What's the nature of a scorpion?

They're actually starting to sound like whiny brats and it's clear as crystal that this is their default approach to all shitty legislation - keep banging on until the public get bored and resistance fades. Only it isn't fading this time because they are actually asking for something that can't reasonably be done.

"They must focus their brightest and best on meeting these fundamental social responsibilities."

What, so the government can ignore all their advice when it doesn't fit with their own pre-conceived world view? (See drugs policy).

All they want is everything, all the time, no resistance and they will keep whining until they get it or the public wises up and sacks them. The moment someone tells them what they want to hear they'll be all over it, whether it's possible, sensible or legal - doesn't seem to matter.
