Nanny's £55 Dementia Incentive


When I was a wee lad my dentist was prone to find the need to drill and fill my teeth.

Was I a sugar fiend, with rotting teeth?

No!

I have never had a sweet tooth and any minor decay on my toothy pegs could have been left to heal (yes, minor decay can heal) or sit there without doing any harm, without the need to drill and fill.

For why then did my dentist always reach for the drill?

Because Nanny paid him per filling; ie he was incentivised to find problems, and to enact incorrect solutions, where there were none.

Step forward to the present day and Nanny pays GP's to inflict all manner of bollocks tests on us (eg blood pressure readings).

Today we learn of a very dangerous development, Nanny will pay family doctors £55 for every patient they diagnose with dementia under a new NHS England scheme.

This of course will incentivise doctors to diagnose every slightly forgetful person they see with dementia, putting those persons through unnecessary stress and intrusive/invasive state interference.

Unsurprisingly the scheme has been condemned as an “ethical travesty”!

Coming soon will be "Well Elderly Persons Clinics"!

Nanny Bans Common Sense


In  Nanny's universe common sense has long since been abolished.

Step forward Tesco, a company that is currently imploding under the stress of its own idiocy, wherein its staff shouted at a customer to remove her guide dog from its Swiss Cottage branch.

Maya Makri was recently in the Swiss Cottage shop, with her clearly marked guide dog, when she was told by staff to "never come back".

The BBC reports that she said three cashiers shouted "no pets allowed" and to leave the shop.

Tesco said:
"This clearly should never have happened and we will contact Ms Makri directly to apologise."
Why are people, especially when performing their functions in a company/organisation, so devoid of common sense?

Ebola Paranoia


Sadly the media scaremongering over ebola, and Nanny's kneejerk reactions to media pressure, have caused some people to become more than a little paranoid.

Jon O'Brien, of Turvey Bedfordshire, has told Sharnbrook Upper School that he wants his daughter to wear a face mask to school during the ebola crisis.

He is quoted by BedfordshireOnSunday:
"I don’t believe the crap the government are telling us in relation to Ebola so I emailed the school and said I would like my child to wear a mask.

I'm not going to wait for my child to catch Ebola I'm going to send my child to school with a mask and bloody goggles. 

I should be able to protect her and I will do what's best for her....

I’m not part of the 95 per cent of sheep that run this country and do everything they are told."
Whilst I respect his desire to protect his daughter, and the fact that he doesn't believe what politicians say, if ebola were running rampant in Bedfordshire wearing a mask would not be adequate protection.

Let us try to maintain perspective please!

Boris Nixes Fag Ban

I am pleased to see that, despite commissioning the report that recommended banning fag smoking in parks, Boris Johnson has (following widespread criticism and ridicule of the recommendation) decided that the recommendation is bollocks.

As per the Telegraph:
"This idea in my view, as a libertarian conservative, comes down too much on the side of bossiness and nannying. 
One feature of life in London is that we are a city that allows people to get on with their lives within the law provided they are not harming anyone else."
Quite so!

Eat More Fat

Hoozah!

Common sense at last!

As loyal readers know I have long expounded the meritorious benefits of eating fat. The body is like a car engine, it needs to be lubricated otherwise it seizes up. Hence fat in the blood stream aids the natural flow of blood around the arteries and veins etc.

Step forward Michael Mosley on "Trust Me I'm a Doctor" who says that contrary to conventional advice, eating more of some fats may be good for our health.

Earlier this year a systematic review, funded by the British Heart Foundation, "Association of dietary, circulating and supplement fatty acids with coronary risk" examined the links between eating saturated fat and heart disease. Despite looking at the results of nearly 80 studies involving more than a half million people they were unable to find convincing evidence that eating saturated fats leads to greater risk of heart disease.

In fact, when they looked at blood results, they found that higher levels of some saturated fats, in particular a type of saturated fat you get in milk and dairy products called margaric acid, were associated with a lower risk of heart disease.

A recent study, published in the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care, "High dairy fat intake related to less central obesity" followed 1,589 Swedish men for 12 years. They found that those following a low-fat diet (no butter, low-fat milk and no cream) were more likely to develop fat around the gut (central obesity) than those eating butter, high-fat milk and whipping cream.

One reason for this is that fat is extremely satiating, so when people cut it out of their diet they consciously or unconsciously replace the calories with something else, often refined carbohydrates like white bread or pasta.


Hoozah!

Nanny Hates Fags - Boris Bans Smoking


Nanny's war on the tax revenue raising weed continues unabated.

Step forward Lord Darzi author of a report published by London's Health Commission and, of all people, Boris Johnson.

The report ("Better Health for London") was commissioned by The Boris, who wanted advice on how to make London "healthier". The result being a series of extreme Nannyesque recommendations including:

- banning smoking in public parks
- banning smoking in Trafalgar and Parliament Squares 
- Oyster card discounts for commuters who walk part of the way to work
- a ban on junk food shops near schools
- traffic light labelling on menus at restaurant chains with more than 15 outlets.

Farking bollocks!

Nanny can fark right off!

My advice to Boris and Nanny is simple, if you want to improve the health of London then ban cars and lorries as they are the biggest polluters of all!

Next I assume they will ban people smoking in their own gardens!

Nanny's Volte Farce

As loyal readers are well aware, Nanny has often chided (and indeed fined) those public spirited citizens who have ventured forth into their local communities and cut the verges, trimmed public hedges, planted flowers in roundabouts and attempted to fill in pot holes.

Nanny normally hates it when people use their initiative, as it makes her look surplus to requirements.

However, now that Nanny is finding it hard to make ends meet (and justify taxing us even more), her chums from Devon County Council have actually asked residents to fill in potholes themselves in order to save money on road repairs.

Devon County Council has (according to the Telegraph) an estimated backlog of 11,500 sections of road in need of repair, and has said up to a fifth of its neighbourhood highway workforce could be cut and replaced by volunteer “road wardens”.

Volunteer road wardens...how very Nannyesque!
The volunteers would help fill in potholes, as well as cleaning signs and trimming lawns and verges.

One might ask where our road taxes and council taxes are actually going, but I doubt that we would receive an honest answer.

What a volte farce!

No Mollycoddling

I see that Welsh Nanny has issued an edict that warns of the dangers of mollycoddling kids who have glandular fever, tonsillitis etc.

Kids who have been struck down with tonsillitis and glandular fever should carry on going to school. The booklet, given to families in South Wales, says pupils should take “zero days off”; despite suffering a range of childhood illnesses such as conjunctivitis, head lice, threadworm and hand, foot and mouth disease.

Foot and mouth?

I thought cows got that?

Nanny goes on to recommend that kids should spend just four days away from school for measles, and take no more than five days for chicken pox, whooping cough and mumps.

The Telegraph notes that the guide was produced by a consortium of five local councils, including Cardiff.

As to whether this is workable or not remains to be seen, given that "one size" does not fit all and kids take different times to recover. I would also note that forcing them to come to school, whilst still contagious, simply spreads the bugs to others.

I wonder what Nanny's recommendation will be for Ebola?
