Cry Babies

As people continue to moan about the referendum, some have said that the old have stolen the young's future.

I have even read suggestions that people over 65 should not be allowed to vote.

Yet when the votes are analysed, it transpires that 66% of 18-24 young people didn't bother voting!

Stop Whinging

Courtesy of Virgin media my broadband has been down since Friday and won't be fixed before Wednesday, hence I am posting from a mobile.

Regarding the post referendum whinging and clamour for referendum 2 the sequel, irrespective of how you voted, stop whinging and finger pointing.

We are where we are, and need to work from that.

A house divided inevitably falls !

Nanny To Monitor Kids' Internet


As per Jen Persson on Schools Week:

"While the compulsory retention of every website visit for every person in the UK was recently debated and passed in the House of Commons in the Investigatory Powers Bill, the plans for statutory surveillance of every child’s Internet use, in schools and at home, has gone unnoticed.

Without Parliamentary or public discussion, children’s internet use will be monitored by third parties from September. This is despite widespread associated concerns – including choking off free speech, religious freedom, and staff feeling vulnerable – presented to the Joint Select Committee for Human Rights by experts in education and security legislation.

The brief paragraph 75 in The Department for Education (DfE) “New measures to keep children safe online at school and at home” statutory guidance Safeguarding in Schools, will impose a change from a duty ‘to consider’ web monitoring to one that ‘should ensure’ it for educational establishments, excluding 16-19 academies and free schools.

The supporting advice to which the Government response points, suggests actively monitoring all screen activity during a lesson from a central console using appropriate technology as a solution, even in circumstances that suggest low risk. And that logfile information should be able to identify an individual user, and be reviewed regularly. Pro-active monitoring is suggested where alerts are managed by a third-party provider.

The Department for Education’s summary response and advice however offers little practical support to school leaders how to concretely take these things into account, while still meeting human rights legislation.

Without explicit clarity on the practice of monitoring personal electronic devices not owned by the school, we risk a slippery descent into schools made complicit in a privacy invasion of family life."

Thus the stage is set for kids to become tools of the state, from childhood onwards until they die of old age.
"Give me a child for the first 5 years of his life and he will be mine forever."

British Spunk Before Nanny Took Over



Here is a fine example of British spunk, in the era before Nanny took over our lives.

These are the temporary rules introduced by Richmond Golf Club in 1940, after German bombs hit the golf course.

Hot Drinks Cause Cancer - Probably!


The World Health Organisation (WHO), the organisation that spread aids in Africa via infected needles and that has mismanaged the Ebola and Zika outbreaks, has decreed that hot drinks "probably" cause cancer.

In other words they don't know!

Not withstanding the fact that WHO hasn't a clue, it has decreed that hot drinks should always be left for a few minutes to lower the temperature, or cooled down with milk to avoid disease.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency of the WHO, said very hot drinks of 65C and over double the risk of developing cancer of the oesophagus.

However, the panel found there was no evidence that coffee or tea causes cancer and said any link was because of the hot temperature of the drink. Ironically, a few years ago, IARC claimed that coffee did cause cancer!

Dr Christopher Wild, director of IARC, is quoted by the Telegraph:
"These results suggest that drinking very hot beverages is one probable cause of oesophageal cancer and that it is the temperature, rather than the drinks themselves, that appears to be responsible."
Aside from the word "probable" destroying any facet of credibility of this so called "research", who the fark drinks liquids at 65 degrees plus?

That's too bloody hot, you would burn yourself!

The WHO should focus on sorting out the mess it has created wrt Zika and Ebola, instead of sticking its nose into peoples hot beverages!

Eat More Fat


As loyal readers know, Nanny's health advice wrt many things is being disproved on a daily basis.

Hot on the heels of the debacle over her advice about eating less fat, Lord McColl (emeritus professor of surgery at Guys Hospital in London) has weighed in (see the pun there?) and said that low fat diets and exercise are pointless for those wanting to lose weight and obese people should simply eat less.

Lord McColl warned that current health advice to avoid fat was ‘false and misleading’ and was fuelling the obesity epidemic. He noted that exercising was useless against the huge levels of calories from carbohydrates and sugars that people are now consuming.

Quoted by the Telegraph he laid into our chums from Nice:
In the UK the Department of Health and Nice (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) maintains for many years that the obesity epidemic was due to lack of exercise.

It’s a pity that the 500 people employed by Nice didn’t think to go into the gymnasium get on a machine and exercise to see how few calories you actually burn off.

One can pedal away on one of those machines for half an hour and only two or three hundred calories are burned up. One has to run miles to take a pound of fat off.

The whole subject has been bedevilled by all sorts of theories about the course of the obesity; genetics, epigenetic, psychological disturbances. None of them is the cause of the obesity epidemic.

One fact remains. It is impossible to be obese unless one is eating too many calories.

He noted that eating fat was important because it kept people feeling fuller for longer, and advised overweight people to start adding fat into their diet.
Fat enters the small intestine and greatly delays the emptying of the stomach.

As the stomach emptying is delayed it gives the feeling that one has had enough to eat. Later when the fat has been absorbed the stomach then starts to empty again, It’s a beautifully balance mechanism which tends to prevent us from eating too much and prevents us from getting obese.
There you go, what have I been telling you for years on this site?

It is also worth noting that low fat foods are not low calorie.

For why?

The manufacturers add sugar, in order to make up for the lack of flavour caused by removing the fat.

In other words those people who buy low fat foods, in the belief that they will help them lose weight, are being conned by both Nanny and the manufacturers!

Time for a class action!
