Regulate Hairdressers, Says Llanelli Mp Nia Griffith

Recommended Posts

Calls have been made for the compulsory state registration of hairdressers to protect people from "unscrupulous" and "incompetent" traders.

Llanelli MP Nia Griffith is expected to raise the issue in a parliamentary debate on Wednesday.

Ms Griffith said she was "quite shocked" hairdressers do not need any qualifications.

If this goes through and Landlords and Estate Agents are not regulated, then I will be very angry to say the leaast

Salons have 'rented out chairs' for years to avoid their legal employment responsibilities. HMRC turned a blind eye and went after IT contractors instead - many of whom were far less 'employed' than hairdressers.

Prepare for lots of media stories in 3 years time bleating about a hairdressing 'skills shortage' and then no-one in your salon being able to speak good english.

So you have a bad hair maybe for a few weeks and then go somewhere else.

Farcical regulation which will do nothing other than generate needless bureaucracy.

Agree.....people will sometimes react adversely and have an allergic reaction to certain chemicals, even doctors make innocent mistakes......there will always be risks in life...that's life....or wrap yourself in cotton wool and never venture out the door. ;)

Ironically, hairdressers are on Australia's list of preferred professions for those trying to emigrate there.

I think there should be compulsory Government Regulation haircuts, with special styles for the Welsh.

That way we will all be safe.

Welsh haircuts like this?

Regulated hair cuts. No.1 all over for everyone!

Cost £5. With a London weighting.

I just remembered - in North Korea, they actually do have compulsory Government Regulation haircuts.

Typical labour pouncing on a non-problem and solving it with ... wait for it ... more regulation. All this is going to cause is hassle for everyone and more expensive hair cuts.

Yes but in their book it's a problem "solved". The fact it's a problem that doesn't need solving as you simply would not go back is beyond them.

Actually, the cheapest haircuts I've seen have been in London. Can't comment on the quality, but the competition keeps the prices down.

following on from the deflation thread....THIS is why we have deflation.

over-regulation and micromanagement stifles business.

no business, no earnings, no spendings, economy goes down the toilet.

there are two choices now.

choice 1) those pulling the levers of power back off and let people spend and invest how THEY see fit, we get a bit of growth back.-that means getting the TOTAL tax take fo standard rate individuals back to something under 30%

by that I mean income tax/NI/VAT/Council tax.

and also getting rid of pointless social engineering programmes.

presently it's something like 50-60%

choice 2) carry on regardless, and when the whole lot goes down the sh1tter pretend it wasn't your fault, and employ goon squads of brownshirts and propaganda specialists to physically and psychologically fordce the point home the IT WAS NOT THEIR FAULT...(see nazi germany/soviet russia for examples of the sort of society it will become)

...and anyone with a bit of wealth/business/sanity will depart these shores and it ends up a viscious death-spiral.

This is a good example of why there should be fewer MPs: keep them busy with proper work and leave them no time to interfere where their interference is not wanted, not needed and more likely to do harm than good

Nia Griffith is an idiot of the very first order

I have tweeted her, resisting the temptation to say something like 'if I had been on the receiving end of a haircut like yours, I would be calling for more regulation of hairdressers too' with

@NiaGriffithMP Please use your elected office for more important matters than creating additional red tape for hairdressers. Please!

A flagship policy from a labour positive discrimination recruit, hilarious. Reminds me of one of their budget speeches whilst in power where the chancellor spent much of speech talking about plastic bags. They're not actually going to get in again are they? are they?
