Compulsory Dog Insurance

In the latest example of disassociated thinking, the government is proposing mandatory insurance for all dogs in the UK. This is to provide compensation for people that are attacked, and is supposed to deter people from owning dangerous dogs.

Hold on, what?

You deter people from owning dangerous dogs by making them pay a small premium to move the responsibility elsewhere? Wow, let me get TWO dangerous dogs, I am not at risk of financial penalty any more!

And tell me, WHY should the owners of mild mannered dogs, and the owners of Yorkshire terriers that, even though they are viscous little buggers, couldn’t even break the skin on most people without a week of effort, pay for the problems caused by pitbull owners?
