It is always fun to see the MSM catching up. We did the story in Spetember so to have the Grauniad only three months behind isn't bad going. The paper does, however, illustrate the huge sums involved in the bailiff scam, with our friend Fern Silverio, the divisional director of collections and housing benefits at Harrow council, telling a conference of bailiffs this year ...

There is a certain fascination to be found ... in their total oblivion to history, and to what always happens when robber barons do what they do.

What is it? They are special? They are different? They know how to do it? Or do they really believe that nobody ever behaved like them before? PDT_Armataz_01_30

You merely need to understand there IS Rule of Law. It's just that the "Law" is not what's written. Instead, it is WHATEVER they want it to be. We have the same problem on the west side of the Pond as well, where "shall not be infringed" means WHATEVER the nine black-robed gods say it does. Because after all, as President Clinton proved so well, it all depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is...

Of course, we over here have at least a semblance of the 2nd Amendment left.

PS: Then again... maybe the oblivion is associated with the fact that none of these "enforcers" have British names.

[btw I've always despised the American terminology: "Law Enforcement" for police. I suppose it's one of those things imported with euros.]

I hate to quibble, but these people should really learn to use terminology properly. They refer to the 'sector' to which you have rightly prefixed the word 'bailiff'. But if they were speaking proper they would have said 'bailiff community'. They just aren't image-aware enough.

I write as an active member of the old moaners community.

I have always felt I could have moaned for England, so if we're getting a team of old moaners together for the 2012 Olympics, I'd like to claim my rightful place on the team.

Here's a demonstration of my expertise ...
That Cameron ... tch!

See what I mean? The gold medal is practically in the bag. PDT_Armataz_01_30
