Priorities are all wrong

ACCORDING to BBC research, the number of parents being fined for taking their child out of school for a holiday has risen dramatically.

What’s more important, education or life? A report published last year shows the share of serious road ‘accidents’ involving young children is at a 10-year high, during which time 32,849 have been killed or seriously injured.

Why aren’t councils enforcing 20mph speed limits, and why is the fine for taking a child out of school higher than the fine for speeding?
