The Dangers of Uncle Joe's Mint Balls



Nanny has issued an urgent warning to parents in the Wigan area to keep their kids away from a gentleman posing as "Uncle Joe", seemingly his mint balls are radioactive and may cause children to glow in the dark!

Lose Weight - Go Shopping


Nanny is now so concerned about obesity, that the NHS is proposing that firms reward staff with cash or shopping vouchers if they lose weight.

A report published today by the NHS is quoted by the Huffington Post:
"Put bluntly, as the nation's waistline keeps piling on the pounds, we're piling on billions of pounds in future taxes just to pay for preventable illnesses."
Simon Stevens (NHS England CEO) said that the NHS has led to a "blind spot" about the healthcare of employees (because the state and the private sector do not make comfortable bed fellows), and workplace schemes to encourage weight loss have been largely ignored despite success abroad.
"The principal point is that employers in many countries have developed voluntary schemes for their employees whereby for example you actually get cash back based on participation in Weight Watchers or other type schemes."
Suffice to say Nanny doesn't intend to fund any private sector weight loss schemes, rather she (via the NHS) intends to "challenge" firms to bring in such schemes.

As to whether this gets anywhere, who knows?

I am of the view that we are bombarded day and night with adverts for slimming products and lectures from Nanny about our weight. Unless people have been living in a cave they must surely by now be aware of how to eat and exercise sensibly; people are not gaining weight because they don't know how to eat and exercise sensibly, therefore I doubt that more lectures and advice will have much effect.

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!
