Queen Upsets Nanny

The QueenOh dear, it seems that even royalty is not outwith the scrutiny of Nanny and her acolytes.

Nanny's chums in the British Horse Society, which incidentally is patronised by the Queen, have criticised the Queen for riding the other day without a hard hat.

Surely what the Queen chooses to wear, when out riding, is her business?

It looks like Nanny is starting off 2005 as she means to go on, namely by putting her nose into matters that don't concern her.

    Many of us in the US admire your Queen and wouldn't want to see her hurt in a riding accident, so my first reaction was to think of poor Christopher Reeve's riding disaster. Then my wife reminded me that he WAS wearing a hard hat at the time, and simply had the misfortune to land badly.

    Perhaps a suit of kevlar armor?

    I'm sure our NuLab masters are secretly plotting to make horseriding illegal under the cruelty to animals laws. To this end they'll probably get DEFRA to euthanise all members of the equine species so that compliance will be 100% and the laws will be seen to be erm... poplular.

    Since someone brought up Christopher Reeves, I'll point out that helmets reduce the chance of brain injuries but provide no protection to any part of the spinal column. At certain angles of impact, they may even increase the force applied to the neck - although most impacts on the helmet that cause injuries to the spinal cord would have splattered the victim's brains without a helmet.
