Nanny has decided that we are not doing enough to help those who are less fortunate.
She came to this conclusion whilst on holiday in Egypt during, and after, the Tsunami disaster.
One part of her solution to this problem, is that she has decided to give a very large amount of aid to the victims of this disaster; the good news being (from her point of view) is that the money that she gives will not be hers, but the taxpayers.
No pain, no gain!
The second part of the solution to this problem is brilliant, even by her standards; she has decided that her “charges” should participate in voluntary work.
In order to make this easier for people, Nanny has decided to make “volunteering” compulsory.
Yes that’s right, you will be told to volunteer.
Each month of 2005 will be “themed” to a particular Nanny issue; eg January’s theme is health.
Brilliant isn’t it?
I don’t think this concept of “communal service” en masse has been used by any country, since Germany in the 1930’s.
One wonders where Nanny gets her ideas from!
