Save those pretty Toenails

October 22, 2009

A Frankenstein like combination of bad science, magical thinking, peaked-cappery and misanthropy has led to an agency of HM Government trying to harvest toenail clippings from asylum seekers. It is claimed this is for isotope testing in the vain hope of catching people out in lying about their nationality. Those good people  ARCH and at Nature have alerted me to this assault on the toe nails of the world. But worse, the peak cap brigade want bits of hair too – tis’ but a moment before they will be gathering eye of newt, toe of frog etc. and dancing round a cauldron. I wonder what spells they will be attempting to cast?

Happy Halloween to the UK Border Agency.
