Education by humiliation

It's good to see someone else cheesed off by the government's latest lurch to the Daily Mail right. The idea of getting offenders to wear special jackets and have 'Wanted' style posters of frequent fliers all over the place is a risible idea more at home in some Little Britain spin-off. But desperate politicians do desperte things and as the latest governance configuration slowly and humiliatingly disintegrates, we can expect more of these tawdry and wretched unideas to bob up in the papers - only to sink into oblivion where they, and their septic originators belong.
Still, it would be fitting if Blair and the rest of the war brigade were forced to wear this uniform in honour of their crimes against humanity. Though they would have to scrub for years to get the filth off themselves....
