Blind air traffic controllers needed
Friday, 11 July 2008 10:39

The Isles of Scilly invites applications for the post of air traffic controller, and as a requirement of the job they want someone with 20/20 vision - that's perfect eyesight. Fine, the person appointed will need that and there's no doubt they should have good eyesight.

However, just to prove that the lunatics are in control and alive and well the application form is being made available in Braille. The Royal National Institute for the Blind has welcomed this. As an example of the ridiculous state of affairs that pervades all officialdom in the UK this is one of the best.

Common sense doesn't seem to come onto the radar these days, it is sheer madness to waste money with things like this.
