This is a rant and has absolutely nothing to do with divorce. Our son, pictured above with friends, has been asked to accompany some musicians performing at the Scottish Parliament. To do this he is required to obtain a Portable Appliance Test certificate for his electric piano and deliver it to the Parliament tomorrow morning before the performance so the electricians there can check it. It's bureaucracy gone mad. As a MEng student in electrical and electronic engineering he is better qualified than most electricians to check the safety of his own equipment. Grr...

Indeed. I would have thought they would PAT test it there. What a joke.

Indeed. Today S had the security to contend with too.
At one point the porters lost the keyboard. How they managed that I don't know, it's gigantic.

Cos they are stupid! The smart people are doing the PAT

lol - The really smart ones were the security police checking out the bag of tricks where S keeps all his leads and bits and pieces. Anyone who can determine there definitely isn't a bomb in there deserves a medal IMHO
