“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Oh! what a tangled web we weave.

It's a given that if, for example, you run a fruit and veg stall you will take stuff home with you at the end of the day. The local butcher will not be popping into Tesco to pick up some steak on the way home. Viewed in this light A4e boss Emma Harrison's decision to use her unemployed "clients" as slave labour in her company office makes sense. I suppose this is how she viewed it. Just a perk of the job. Bit like the landlord pulling himself a pint. Certainly nothing that would justify being forced to step down from her position as Cameron's Family Tsar. Mind you, how many people would want to have Harrison coming round the house when they were having a bit of trouble with one of the kids? And that's another thing - was Harrison called in to help with the unfortunate issues that have befallen Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman's family? I know Caroline, teenage boys can be a problem.
