Deeply Creepy

The government was half way through doing something about the wildly unregulated cosmetic "treatment" industry. Something much needed as the rates of people lining up for a quick shot of deadly botulism in the head. And now they've dropped the baton, can't be bothered, too much like hard work. They prefer to leave the industry to "self-regulation", which means no regulation at all, just let the cowboys carry on.

They say they're trying to avoid leaving medical professionals with too much "red tape" to get through, but reputable clinics are furious with the news, they want the chalatans who steal their potential customers and lead to media horror stories closed down.

So there must be some other reason for the issue being dropped. What could it be. Hmm, hmmm, still thinking ... how about backhanders, bribery and corruption? Just a theory.
