"it's time to celebrate the role that appropriate regulation plays every day".

Apparently. Not my sentiment, but that of Brendan Barber of the TUC, in a New Year's message destined to set pulses racing, hearts pounding etc etc.

Perhaps I should race down to the town hall with a few confederates, and arrange for a couple of bureaucrats to be lifted up in their chairs and whirled around Croydon as if they were a newly wed Jewish couple (Think 'Fiddler on the Roof'). Or perhaps I could add the council, government etc etc to my rather short list of thank you letter recipients. I have spent a few seconds trying to re-work the lyrics to Kool & the Gang's 'Celebration', and judge that 'Ce-le-brate red tape, come on' works.

Other suggestions welcome.
