Mr Reid, our esteemed leader in the Home Office has been faced with some serious problems this week.
Notsaussure, has the best in-depth pieces that I have seen this week.
However, with prison places hard to come by, paedo's on the streets and a feeling of general anarchy descending from the media to the whole populace I can see only two clear options for 'JR':
1 - Bring back hanging, this is much cheaper than long-term jail costs and is also a proven vote-winner with those all important voters, Rupert Murdoch, Rebekah Wade and Paul Dacre.
2 - Impose martial law until the crisis is over. If a resident of Number 11 Downing Street finds his passport cancelled while abroad or finds himself sitting rather too close to the door of a Hercules in the next couple of months, then it may be lost in the maelstrom of the news agenda.
Two easy solutions JR, which one for the media grid this week?
