Nanny, and her friends in the EU, have decided that dear old Tony the Tiger and his friends are a threat to the health of the nation.
Seemingly they feel that Tony, the Honey Monster and their associates are in fact evil manifestations of all that is wrong with our society.
Namely freedom of choice and consumerism.
Tony and his chums are to be banned, as they encourage children to eat cereals. It seems that Nanny doesn't feel that parents have any control over their children these days, and therefore seeks to intervene directly in their upbringing.
In a small concession to common sense, Nanny may allow Tony to appear on TV late at night.
Those of you who still would like to see Tony, may enjoy this vinatge clip from 1965. Visit Tony Tiger to view it.
