Nanny Hates The Sun



I see that our old friends from Nice (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) have yet again issued a warning about sun tanning.

This time they say that there is no healthy way to get a natural tan, and that we should stay out of the sunlight. However, they then go on to say that we should avoid vitamin D deficiency and that sitting in the sun shielded by a window won't do the job of building up vitamin D.

As ever with Nanny and Nice, her one size fits all advice isn't worth the paper it is printed upon. In the UK, as we know, the number of sunny days per annum are somewhat "limited". Advice such as this merely produces hysterical media headlines, and a sigh from the rest of the population who will inevitably ignore the advice.

Doubtless in a few months Nice will issue a directive telling us that we are in danger of rickets etc because of vitamin D deficiencies!

Just ignore the advice, and use your common sense when outside.

#CamilaGate


As per the Telegraph:
"Alleway wasn’t especially keen to expose her subject as paranoid, narcissistic, belligerent, manipulative, self-pitying, evasive, irresponsible and needy. But Batmanghelidjh didn’t give her much other material to work with. A distressed voice behind the camera asked ever more journalistic questions about huge sums squandered on a private swimming pool, taxis, not to mention the money stuffed into brown envelopes so Kids Company clients could allegedly pay their drug dealers."

Prats of The Week - Birmingham City Council

Kudos to Birmingham City Council for demonstrating some first class prattery.

The council, for reasons best known to itself, has banned a group of amateur historians from taking pictures of the city's historic graves unless they apply in writing for permission on a ‘case by case’ basis.


Members of the Jewellery Quarter Research Trust in Birmingham had been compiling an online database of the many famous, and not so famous, people buried in the historic Warstone Lane and Key Hill Cemeteries.

The voluntary group’s website contains a database with lists of graves and in some cases biographies, obituaries and photographs or portraits of the deceased.

There is also a Google Street View-style 360-degree photographic tour of the cemeteries.

However, they have now been banned from taking photos of each gravestone unless they apply in writing for permission on a ‘case by case’ basis.

For why?

Here is a spokesman from the council explaining to ITV the council's "rationale":
"Permission for this request was declined on the basis that once this information is held by a third party then the council will have no control over how it may be used in future, without a formal agreement in place.
We have not asked for any existing photographs to be removed from the Jewellery Quarter Research Trust’s website. We have offered to work with the trust on a case-by-case basis and have advised them that a formal agreement will be required if they wish to photograph all memorials at both cemeteries."
What concern is to the council what people do with photographs of gravestones?

Is it now forbidden to take photographs of gravestones?

Birmingham City Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!

Cecil Rhodes


I am gemused to see that Oriel College Oxford has decided to ignore the spoilt, ignorant brats who want the statue of Cecil Rhodes torn down.

It is a pity that the college allowed this nonsense to drag on for so long.

My advice to leader of the rabble, who seems so incensed about Rhodes, is that if he is so incensed about Rhodes he should refund the scholarship funds that he receives as a Rhodes Scholar!

A Question of Governance - Auntie Castigated


Loyal readers know that I have been less than impressed with the Kids Company, and the clowns that were allegedly "in charge" of that clusterfuck of an organisation.

I am pleased to see that the Commons Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (PACAC) have given that failed organisation, and its "leaders" a well deserved kicking.

Unsurprisingly the clown in chief, Camila Batmanghelidjh, denies everything and is quoted by the BBC saying that the report "is a product of bias and rumour".

Disregarding her delusions, the PACAC report also gives Yentob and Auntie a kicking too (as per this extract):
Auntie had better watch out, PACAC may well go after her next!

Nanny Bans Damian Lewis


My sympathy to the current pupils of Acland Burghley school in Tufnell Park who, if some former alumni have their way, will be denied seeing Damian Lewis (who lives locally) launch the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

For why?

He went to Eton, and some former have decreed that anyone who went to an "elitist" school must never cross the threshold of Acland Burghley or mix with current pupils!

One former pupil, City University sociology lecturer Rachel Cohen, who attended the school in the 1980s, has set up a petition which has attracted 90 signatures urging the school to change its plans.

Nice to see inverse snobbery is still thriving in Britain!

Snobbery, be it top down or bottom up, is a sure fire way to stifle ambition and to keep everyone in their perceived "social class".

Traffic Lights and Speed Bumps Are Dangerous


Kudos to The Institute of Economic Affairs, for stating that four in five sets of UK traffic lights should be torn down to reduce travel delays and boost the economy.

Additionally the Institute doesn't think much of speed bumps and bus lanes either.

In its view the proliferation of traffic lights, speed bumps and bus lanes seen in Britain in recent decades is “damaging to the economy”. It estimates that a two-minute delay to every car journey ends up costing the UK economy about £16 billion every year.

Ironically these "safety" measures make the roads more unsafe. The IEA is quoted by the Telegraph:
Not only is a majority of traffic regulation damaging to the economy, it also has a detrimental effect on road safety and the environment.

Road-users rely on third-hand instructions rather than first-hand judgement about how to adapt to the conditions and proceed safely."
The number of traffic lights in England increased by a quarter since 2000 and some 60,000 speed humps have been installed since they were first introduced in the 1980s, the report says.

These "safety" measures also negatively impact Nanny's totem of the environment, “as drivers brake and accelerate, increasing emissions, noise pollution and harmful health effects”.

Traffic controls are in fact detrimental to road safety because it “subverts our social nature and removes individual responsibility”.

I assume Nanny will ignore the findings of the IEA.

Fried Vegetables Are Good For You


I am gemused to read that, contrary to all previous advice from Nanny, the healthiest way to cook vegetables is to fry them (not boil them).

That, at least, is according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Granada and published in Food Chemistry magazine.

Frying improves antioxidant capacity and increases the amount of phenolic compounds, which help to prevent conditions such as diabetes and cancer.
The research does note that you should only use olive oil.

However, I say, what's the harm in using lard?
