Danger! Lib Dem health and Safety executive at work!

I thought this objection by a leading Lib Dem to a tattoo parlour because it was "fairly close to two schools" was very revealing.

It would appear that the Libdems think all children should be cocooned from all possible temptations and that they cannot think for themselves. As one of the scotman bloggers (this is worrying, as that's the second time I have agreed with one of them!), put it, do we then remove chip shops, bookies, pubs, bakers, dangerous roads, bikes shops, (they might fall off one!) or anything else that might in some small way be seen as dangerous.

Is this their long awaited vision for the city....?
