Nanny Promotes Gender Segregation


Nanny Corbyn, should he ever be elected as Prime Minister (when he will be 70), has decided that men pose such a threat to women when they travel on trains that he will segregate the sexes and have women only carriages.

Segregation for your own "safety" on trains is but the first step to segregation in other aspects of our lives.

Beware the rise of the dinosaurs!

Twitter Bans Politwoops


Twitter has decided that it doesn't like sites that tweet politician's tweets that the politicians have deleted. As such Politwoops website that saved tweets deleted by politicians said Monday that Twitter had blocked its access to Twitter, halting its operations across 30 countries.

As per the Telegraph:
"The Open State Foundation started Politwoops in the Netherlands in 2010, and its collection of deleted tweets proved a frequent source of embarrassment for politicians, as well as a useful tool for journalists.
But the foundation said it was informed on Friday night by Twitter that access was being shut off to Politwoops in the 30 countries in which it operates, following the blocking of Politwoops' US operation in May.
It said Twitter was also blocking Diplotwoops, which screens deleted messages by diplomats and embassies worldwide.
The Open State Foundation said it was told that Twitter had decided to suspend access "following thoughtful internal deliberation and close consideration of a number of factors that doesn't distinguish between users".
"No one user is more deserving of that ability (to delete tweets) than another. Indeed, deleting a tweet is an expression of the user's voice," Twitter told the foundation. 

Since being formed at a so-called hackathon five years ago, Politwoops spread to 30 countries from Egypt to the Vatican, as well as the European Parliament. 

It started operating in the US in 2012 thanks to the Sunlight Foundation, which fights for transparency in politics. 

In a statement to AFP, Twitter said that "the ability to delete one's tweets - for whatever reason - has been a long-standing feature of Twitter for all users". 

Twitter policy says that those who have access to its APIs (application programme interfaces), as Politwoops did, must delete content "that Twitter reports as deleted or expired". 

"From time to time, we come upon apps or solutions that violate that policy. Recently we identified several services that used the feature we built to allow for the deletion of tweets to instead archive and highlight them," Twitter said. 

"We subsequently informed these services of their noncompliance and suspended their access to our APIs." 

Open State Foundation director Arjan El Fassed insisted comments made by politicians on Twitter should remain in the public domain. 

"What elected politicians publicly say is a matter of public record. Even when tweets are deleted, it's part of parliamentary history," he said. 

"What politicians say in public should be available to anyone," El Fassed added. 

"This is not about typos but it is a unique insight on how messages from elected politicians can change without notice." 

A check on the Politwoops website on Monday showed no activity for the past two days."
This is not a black and white issue in my opinion.

In essence should politicians who tweet be treated as human beings, or as politicians?

When a politician misspeaks on TV/radio his/her "misspeak" is more often than not repeatedly broadcast to millions.

Why should Twitter be any different?

Personally I think that depends on what they are tweeting about. A politician who tweets on a political subject is clearly acting as a politician. However, a non political tweet by a politician can be construed as a human being expressing a view. Thus, given that Twitter allows all users to delete human tweets, it should be the case that a politician can delete a human tweet as well.

However, sadly, it is the nature of politicians that they seek to take political advantage in all things.

Drink Is Evil - Nanny Hates The Retired

Nanny has managed to hit two of her most hated targets, drink and those who are retired who contribute nothing to her "paradise one earth", in one blow this time by warning that people over 65 shouldn't drink too much.

According to academics at the institute of psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience at King’s College London a fifth of over-65s are drinking unsafe amounts of alcohol, posing a major risk to their health.

Not this guff about "safe limits" again!

When will Nanny get it into here thick head that "one size fits all" simply doesn't work when it comes to what is "good/bad" for our health?

Anyhoo, the analysis of the health records of people living in the London borough of Lambeth found that heavier drinkers were more likely to be male, wealthier and better educated. That pretty well hits the key demographics of people that Nanny loathes!

The study found drinkers were more likely to be white British or Irish, while people from Caribbean, African or Asian backgrounds were less likely to drink.

Nanny's bollocks guidelines state that men should not drink more than 21 units of alcohol a week, and women 14 units. The study, published in the journal BMJ Open, analysed the GP records of nearly 28,000 people in the borough.

Dr Mark Ashworth, from the division of health and social care research at King’s College London, said:
This research highlights that as GPs we need be more aware of the risk of older people, especially men, drinking excessively. Reducing alcohol misuse is important to prevent premature death and serious negative health effects, such as alcoholic liver disease, which are big burden on our health system. 

Alcohol excess carries additional risks in the older population such as falls and confusion. Based on our findings, the elderly who were most at risk were those from the white British population rather than from an ethnic minority, and were wealthier and better educated rather than those from a more deprived background.”
In a nutshell, Nanny feels that the elderly are a burden. That being the case she should encourage people to drink more, so that they die earlier!

Nanny Loves E Fags



Nanny has had something of a volte farce recently over e fags (or vaps as they are sometimes referred to).

Despite earlier misgivings about e fags being to "route to smoking", Nanny has now decreed that e fags are the route to "salvation" from smokers.

Public Health England asked a group of "experts" (pass the sick bag someone) to study "evidence". Their conclusion was that e fags are 95% less harmful than tobacco. This is amusingly ironic, given that in Wales the government there wants to ban e fags in public.

Anyhoo, that aside, Nanny is now considering prescribing e fags on the NHS.

Errmm....am I the only one to spot the idiocy of this?

Given that someone who smokes is trying to quit, why cannot he/she used the money saved on buying fags to pay for the e fags?

No Buts It's Got To Be Butter!


Knock me down with a feather, after all those years wherein we were bombarded with dire warnings from Nanny about the dangers of saturated fat found in butter, meat or cream it now transpires it's not dangerous at all.

In fact, the real danger lies in food abomination products such as margarine.

A recent study has shown that saturated fat does not increase the risk of stroke, heart disease or diabetes. However trans-fats, found in processed foods like margarine raises the risk of death by 34 per cent.

The new research which looked at 50 studies involving more than one million people found there was no evidence that saturated fat was bad for health.

Variety, not faddy fussyness, is the spice of life!
