I think maybe the UK leads in this sort of thing. "They" make up
laws and "requirements" so that they can have a bureaucracy and
employ more people. Thus we have loads of people waffling around
contributing nothing except doing the laws and regulations. It is a
way of employing immigrants too. In Canada it is usually difficult
to get assistance from a Govt. dept. because their English is
somewhat limited. This, I suppose, matches the "off shore help" from
many of the big companies. Problem is that all this is paid for by
the public sector and as the bureaucracy gets bigger so the private
sector gets smaller - so eventually the bureaucrats will have to
start private sector business to get enough money to pay
themselves. Boy, that should be fun !!!!
What you have to realise that that those people slapping tickets on
people employs not only the slapper-oners but their supervisors,
clerics, paymasters, the people who "train" them and Uncle Tom Cobbley and all.
