If only life were so simple

As I write, Ed Balls is defending the CRB checks that need to be carried out under Labour legislation on the Andrew Marr show. It seems that it has never been the case that parents need checks if they organise childcare for each other. It all sounds so simple. I am afraid that Ed is wrong and it isn't simple at all.

You only have to go back three months to the case of two policewomen who were told that they had broken the law because they looked after each other's childen. It was generally recognised that the legislation was complicated and confusing. This is why the Government is going to great lengths to say how simple everything is.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a Labour politician recognising their errors and saying they are working to correct them.

Change the world
