And then I read the news and know it is.
Further confirmation of this undeniable fact comes with the report that two police officers face prosecution by OFSTED (Britain’s education watchdog) over their shared childcare arrangements
The two detective constables, Leanne Shepherd, from Milton Keynes, and Lucy Jarrett, from Buckingham, told the BBC how Ofsted insisted they end their arrangement.
Ms Shepherd, who serves with Thames Valley Police, recalled: “A lady came to the front door and she identified herself as being from Ofsted. She said a complaint had been made that I was illegally childminding.
“I was just shocked - I thought they were a bit confused about the arrangement between us.
“So I invited her in and told her situation - the arrangement between Lucy and I - and I was shocked when she told me I was breaking the law.”
I’m glad to see that the Children’s Minister is looking in to this, but still shocked it is necessary. This is clearly a case where the strict application of the letter of the law (a good and necessary law, I might add) goes against all reason.
