Nanny's Rose Coloured Spectacles

Nanny viewing the latest road safety demonstrationNanny love statistics, ahem, when they work in her favour. However, she hates to be reminded of life’s unpleasant little realities.

One such reality is the fact that people, from time to time, are killed on Britain’s roads. Now this is a fact of life, and it is not Nanny’s fault. However, Nanny likes to see the world through rose coloured spectacles; and insists that her subjects use the same spectacles.

Therefore she gets into a “right old strop” when she is reminded of road fatalities. Incidentally, fatalities on Britain’s roads reached 3,508 last year, a 2% rise on 2002.

One very public reminder of these deaths is the informal laying of flowers at the spot of an accident, by friends and relatives of the victim.A roadside memorial

Nanny wants this abolished.

She has therefore persuaded her lackeys in local government to come up with a cunning plan, to remove any tangible evidence of an accident.

Anxious to please their mistress, they have obliged her. Four local authorities (including Lincolnshire and Aberdeenshire) have told bereaved families that they must not lay flowers at the site of a fatal road crash, after a predetermined period of mourning; and are seeking to ban permanent memorials.

The councils claim that they are acting in the interests of those who place the flowers, and the drivers who may be distracted by the memorials.

Mary Williams, chief executive of Brake, a national road safety charity is reported to have said:

This is the most offensive thing that has ever been done by any official body, against people who have been violently bereaved through road accidents..It’s unbelievably crass and insensitive to suggest that traumatic grief lasts for a fixed period of time. These are people whose lives are changed for ever and the policies being implemented are depriving them of the right to tell others where something appalling has happened...”

The bottom line is that Nanny is crass and insensitive.

To see the world like Nanny does, order a pair of Nanny’s rose coloured spectacles today.

They are not only fun, novel and amusing to wear; they are compulsory.
