We might be emerging from the recession, but that doesn't change the fact that most people still count themselves lucky if they manage to get to the end of the month with any money left in their account.
We're broke and we know it, and while things may be showing some signs of improvement on a macro front, the micro, as ever, is still pretty bleak.
So what do we need, if not more stupid rules and by-laws to remind us that we still have a dangerous, meddling, intrusive class of people who simply love telling the rest of us what to do, what to say, what to think and what to drink?
