"Back in 2005, the UK's Labour administration announced that it would be seizing and crushing the cars of people who drove without being insured. This week, ministers in the new Coalition government are to go further even than this, saying that anyone who merely keeps an uninsured vehicle faces having it seized and crushed. Such proposals show how tentative a grip our politicians have on commonsense, and on justice." (01/10/11)
