BLOGTOBER 2009: Britons Not So Great Anymore, But At Least Their Government Takes Bovine Hapiness Seriously, Edition

Today's edition of You Couldn't Make It Up comes from Yorkshire, where a farmer has been fined £150 for 'failing to meet the psychological and ethological needs' of a cow.

I still can't believe I've just written that sentence.

Ronald Norcliffe's offence was to keep his cattle in a barn without electric light. When did that become a crime?

Richard Littlejohn speaks truth to bureaucrats in his latest "Debate" piece for the Daily Mail.


(and I feel so mature for not making any "Dick Littlejohn" jokes, though I know there's a 'Dick Littlejohn is Daily Mail's Master Debater' joke in their somewhere)
