Citizen Editor: Blame culture a ridiculous reflection on society
HOW ridiculous that someone trapping a thumb in a door will cost the taxpayer.
Quedgeley Parish Council has found itself between a rock and a hard place over this. Contest it and they would likely have paid out considerably more than the £9,131 their insurers have forked out.
Inevitably the premium will rise and residents' pockets will just have to get deeper.
'Where there's blame there's a claim' the saying goes but, really, who is actually to blame here?

A man's thumb trapped in a door during windy weather and a woman running headlong into automatic doors because they 'opened too slowly'.
These people need to take a long hard look at themselves and really ask who is responsible.
It would be hilarious if it wasn't so depressing.
ON page four today we tell the story of brave little Harry Chambers.
Life did not get off to a good start for Harry, who's now four, but he has shown plenty of fight.
It was down to a life-saving piece of equipment that he's here today and how fantastic to see his family doing everything they can to ensure others can go on to healthy life after a shaky start.
We would urge all of our readers to support the Chambers family's efforts to organise a fundraising music festival.
THE Citizen is all about community, not just reporting on it but getting stuck in too.
That's why we're delighted to see our 'Citizen Gets It Done' campaign starting to bear fruit. Our team will be swapping notepads for brushes at Holy Trinity Church in Longlevens.
