This deserves some mockery.

Spotted at Nanny Knows Best:
Preliminary Business
Notice of Presentation of Bill
[No debate]

Ann Coffey

Bill to require householders to fit a letter box guard if they are in possession of a dog; and for connected purposes.

Formal first reading: no debate or decision.
You can bet that the next step will be the councils using RIPA to check on people who have, or might have a dog. Then no matter how small or well trained said canine may be they will issue enforcement notices (as well as lots of fines) on the home owners to fit guards.

I wonder how long (if this becomes law) before the media has a story of the old lady who has an armed response unit of the plod descend on her sheltered housing complex for failure to fit a guard and thus keep Mr Postman's thieving fingers safe from the ravages of her blood thirsty chihuahua who could never get up to the letter box in a million years.

Said chihuahua dying in a hail of bullets after scaring the tooled up members of the plod, much like a certain Brazilian, followed by a statement by the police that they followed the "correct procedures".

Maybe Gordon & Co could set up a doggie ID card scheme, a dog DNA database if you will and push some utter tool of an MP as a "dog Czar"; maybe they could hand that to Kerry McCarthy? Oh and of course they will have to lose all the information on a flash drive at some later date.

Not that this is the first time MP's have had a go at matters dog related, leading to a rather shoddy act based on lurid tales in the tabloid press.

Talking of dogs, Ann Coffey MP also claimed £1,052 in furniture and bedding and £40 a month for a TV package in 2005. So nice to see that with all the infringements of our rights and liberties, the overpaid MP's find trivial matters to fill their tiny minds with.

I thought we were supposed to have eaten all the dogs to save the polar bears from drowning. I'm confused.
