The Nonsense Complaints Commission is to shut following a record number of complaints.
There was a fundamental confusion about our purpose, said Sir Leanings Westward, the outgoing chairman. People thought we were a Commission to which you could complain about nonsense. In fact, our purpose was to make complaints about nonsense to others.
The Commission complained about nonsense twice. Once in 1973 and once in 1982. Since it was set up in 1968 it has received an average of 4000 complaints a year, all of which were discarded.
If you wish to complain about nonsense, you now have nowhere to do it. In fact, it turns out you never did.
