That's good of them

The Home Office has a "Purpose, Aims & Values". But of course it does.

The first of those aims is that: "People are and feel more secure in their homes and daily lives".

So we have a government department concerned with how we feel. And how exactly does that department intend to fulfill its aim of making us feel more secure? After all, it's well-known that fear of crime usually bears no rational relationship to the likelihood of it occurring; so the Home Office could successfully crack down on crime, reducing it to unprecedentedly low levels and we, benighted souls, could well continue not to feel as required.

How, then, would Nanny respond?
