Language, Please

In times of austerity the pressure groups come out and start demanding with menaces, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the Welsh Assembly. They chose the year that we're all being told to cut back, don't move, don't breath or even think about having a life, to spend our hard stolen taxes to insist that the police now have to be Bilingual. This will all be at a massive cost, of course.

I mean, in the grand scheme of things is this really essential? Will your local hooded numpty really care if his rights are read in English or a language that only seems to exist to hurt your tonsils or for the over production of phlegm?
Lawyers, not ones for finding new ways of letting murderers out on a technicality, are going to have a field day with this: They're going to say, 'How do we know his rights were read correctly? Did he use the feminine with the past tense or the other way round?'. The Judge will look horrified at being caught out by the tabloids and release him with a pay out, an apology and a new house in Kensington to carry out his murdering spree unhindered

I just think the whole thing is wrong and a massive waste of money, so I enjoyed writing this cartoon a little more than most.
