By Boris Johnson
"It's not good enough. It's not good enough just to shrug our shoulders and say that Jean Charles de Menezes was an inevitable casualty of the so-called war on terror."
"The dreadful truth is that it wasn't excessive trigger-happiness that led to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes. It was the modern obsession with health and safety that ratcheted up the risk to the public, and fatally compromised the health and safety of an innocent man."Comments:Health&Safety is out of control.Over 30 years in the construction industry has shown me that.It's a hugh organization now and if they are not continually dreaming up ever more fanciful rules for our "safety" then a lot of them are out of work.Some of the rules pertaining to safety are truly unbelievable.So indeed "spot on Boris".
