Remember, Remember...

Bonfire nightThis time of the year affords Nanny so many opportunities to interfere in our lives, as she seeks to remove every vestige of fun and excitement from the daily grind.

First there is the threat posed by conkers; now, as we approach November the 5th, we have Nanny’s other pet hate fireworks.

Nanny has had an overriding ambition to ban fireworks outright, she has not yet achieved this. However, she is doing her best to “put the mockers” on Guy Fawkes Night; by introducing a whole host of rules and regulations to make it impossible to enjoy the event.

One such rule is that public bonfires must be cordoned off, and monitored 24 hours a day.

Nanny’s daft little bonfire rule has succeeded in ruining one Guy Fawkes party in Coleshill, Warwikshire. They will not be holding a bonfire this year there, because of this rule.

This fine example of the inflexibility of the nanny state is particularly irksome to the residents of Coleshill; for you see the bonfire was to have been built next door to the local fire station, by the local firefighters.

Nanny can’t quite see the irony in this.
