Witches face jail for inaccurate predictions

Witches in Romania could face jail time if their fortune telling predictions turn out to be incorrect.
This comes as another blow to witches practicing in the country following new laws last year recognising witchcraft as a proffession and requiring practitioners to pay income tax. Witches unhappy with the changes were said to have cast spells on the government in protest.
Witches in Romania could receive a spell in jail or a fine if they make incorrect fortune telling predictions. Politicians are debating a draft bill which will require witches to apply for a permit and be judged on their accuracy.

There's predicting the weather, and then there's telling people where to place bets and how to live their life and getting paid for it. Besides, weathermen have a better hit rate than these supposed precogs.

Without weathermen we'd never know when to bring a raincoat. Now we know sometimes, and sometimes we find ourselves sweating in our raincoat because a 'sudden change' came in.

Is this some way for the government to test the 'accuracy' of... of... ummmm... how do I put it...? I don't know, a way for government to test the accuracy of 'sorcery'? How are fortune tellers going to cover their butts in that situation?

Jeepers, even doctors are wrong sometimes, that's why they call it a practice!!! And doctors provide their advice based off of medical experience. When they're wrong, or when they purposefully do wrong, they get sued for malpractice. Most psychics are scams, the ones who aren't are usually self delusional.
