Had Scargill not tried to bring down the elected government by flexing the miner's muscle maybe the scenes of violence could have been avoided, but I'll grant you that anywhere the Met (London Police) got brought in it turned nasty, but that's more a reflection of the Met than Thatcher - the Met are _still_ a little too handy with their fists (see Ian Tomlinson)
If there was some way to weed out 'bad teachers' you could hope that the Biology teachers at such a school would continually be identified by Ofsted (UK schools watchdog) and warned, offered re-training, etc, then sacked, but sadly that's unlikely because the teacher union(s) would probably get all upset and call a national strike - even if Ofsted had such powers, and I don't think they do because if they did the teacher union(s) would probably get all upset and call a national strike!

How can a huge number of opportunities occur without people realizing they are there? The law of combinations, a related strand of the Improbability Principle, points the way. It says: the number of combinations of interacting elements increases exponentially with the number of elements. The “birthday problem” is a well-known example.
Now if only we could harness this to make an infinite improbability drive!"

Swedish police have visited other countries to 'interview' suspects in the past - including murderers - and presumably will do so in the future, so it does seem a little odd that they're so reluctant to pop over to the UK to interview a suspected 'rapist' who has offered to assist countless times.
The whole issuing of the European Arrest Warrant in the first place is decidedly odd too
"Real People" are not the ones who decide if MS is used in gov't offices or not.
"Real People" who spent their formative years at the coal face of IT 10-15 years ago are now in a positions of increasing influence if not outright power. They have spent their careers watching how MS manipulates the Windows ecosystem for MS's benefit at the expense of MS's customers.
Remember, Manning released _proof_ that the US armed forces were guilty of gunning down a Reuters reporter, then was further complicit in denying it happened and covering up, let alone not offering help to those wounded during the strike.
