English as she is spoke
A national action plan to tackle child abuse through witchcraft is being launched today...
Well, I'm all for radical solutions if they're effective. Or does that sentence not mean what it appears to mean?
Ah! Parsing is such sweet sorrow.
Still, more important to sort out the minor problems than the major, hey?
A 'national plan' to contain and alleviate the problem would be simple, and would entail denying permanent residence rights to anyone in the UK hailing from a country where such witchcraft is common, and removing them when they are convicted of engaging in this loathsome activity. Can't see much likelihood of such a plan being adaopted though...
However a 'national plan' whose aim is the creation of conferences, to be attended by sinecure holders who 'discuss strategies' for 'addressing the issues' ad nauseum, is pretty much odds-on.
