David Cameron always reads his reports...

I’m a bit late with this, but I was reading through Lord Young’s report on Health & Safety today and found this. In David Cameron’s foreword to the report, he says:
"A damaging compensation culture has arisen, as if people can absolve themselves
from any personal responsibility for their own actions, with the spectre of
lawyers only too willing to pounce with a claim for damages on the slightest
If you go on to read the part of the report that deals with compensation claims, you find this statement from Lord Young:
"The problem of the compensation culture prevalent in society today is, however,
one of perception rather than reality”
Mind you, Lord Young also says “I have agreed with the Prime Minister that I will continue in my role to deliver all the reforms identified as being necessary”, and we all know what happened there…
