Butchering the Free Market

From the Daily Mail:

Butchers banned from using knives

Butchers at Sainsbury's have been banned from using knives - because of health and safety.

Shopper John Wilkinson was shocked when a meat counter worker at the supermarket said he could not de-bone a joint of lamb.

The businessman was told: 'My bosses won't let me - in case I cut myself and I'm not insured.'

Commanding butchers not to use knives is kind of like telling Obama he can no longer use his teleprompter.
