So the Probation Service is drowning in paperwork and spend 75% of their time in meetings. Where is the news in this? The whole country has been choked by the creation of paper trails, box ticking and pointless meetings instead of getting out there and doing useful stuff, exercising discretion. Why? Because under the last government we were needlessly over-regulated every time there was a problem and have ended up after 10 years in a climate of fear because due process was not followed. Bring back individuality creativity and common sense.
