Cowboys

Tony Watkins posts an amusing juxtaposition of quotes:
"Only the cowboys need to be afraid of the new Building Regulations."
Clayton Cosgrove, Minister for Building Issues, 24 April 2006
Really?
"An investigation has been launched after twenty one health and safety experts had to be rescued when their office collapsed during a meeting."
Royal Institute of British Architects Legal e-bulletin no.137, 1 March 2006

  1. Haha!!!... Goes to show who the real cowboys are!!! Just as an aside; did you hear the Vice-minister of transport confess on T.V.: "I don't know anything about cars", when questioned about the new “Parliamentary BMWs”… I can see why she’s got the job she has!
