Lunatics continue running the asylum

Timid Times

The resort of Torbay has spent £30,000 of taxpayers; money on flip-flops for women who are too drunk to stagger home in high heels.

The initiative by Safer Communities Torbay, a partnership between Devon and Cornwall Police, Torbay Council, the fire and rescue service and the local education authority, is meant to reduce the number of injuries caused by 'dangerous' footwear, including stubbed toes and sprained ankles.

The scheme, funded by the Home Office, is due to start next month in time for Christmas office party revellers, who pour out of the resorts clubs and bars in the early hours.

Am I the only person who actually weeps at this kind of stuff? The fact they are spending a single penny of taxpayers money on this is a disgrace, but they have managed to blow 30k.

Taxation is bad enough, but when it is wasted on frivolous manure like this; you have to start realising the damage of state sponsored theft can have.
