Vetting 'threatens scout events'

BBC NEWS | UK | Vetting 'threatens scout events'
New anti-paedophile vetting rules will threaten the 90-year tradition of Scout Jamborees, the Scout Association says.

It has warned that major gatherings of packs from around the world may be cancelled due to the introduction of the scheme.

Under the controversial rules anyone working or volunteering with children must register for background checks.

But organising checks on thousands of foreign Scout leaders was "just not possible", a spokesman said.
That's what happens when you make stupid laws.

Defenders of our MPs, particularly in the light of the expenses scandal, repeatedly tell us how hard our MPs work. Unfortunately, this is the sort of shit they're hard at work producing.
