Management Services;Nov84, Vol. 28 Issue 11, p6

Perhaps the problems are so great that those elected to ensure the welfare of all the electorate have to grasp at straws to sustain some semblance of purposeful activity. But, to some disillusionment with the whole democratic representational system when an apparently responsible elected body protests about the middle class racial and sexual overtones in Tufty Fluffytail a cartoon character who has for long, apparently been the penant bearer of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents so far as children and road accidents are concerned.
