The Commission for Social Care Inspection (commonly known as “Sea Sky” or, with the obsession with stars, perhaps it’s “See Sky”) is a Titanic failure and is now worse than useless when it comes to doing the very things it was set up to do. The great hulk is holed beneath the water line and it’s going nowhere but down.

I see the star ratings as distress flares being fired from a sinking ship . . . or are they the explosions as the boiler blows up?
