It is reported that Nanny's chums from a "council Allotment Working Party" sent Andrew Pittman a 3 page "risk assessment", outlining the risks of his allotment.
The document gave him a list of recommendations, including:
- Putting a lid on his water butt to avoid drowning
- Covering the end of bean canes to prevent eye injuries
- Moving tools off footpaths to avoid tripping
- Replacing glass frost covers with plastic ones
You may wonder how it is that Nanny has the time, and the resources, to waste on such nonsense.
Well the answer is simple, nearly 7 million people now work for Nanny; many holding non productive jobs such as admin. These people have time on their hands, and as such have to justify their own existence; hence the creation of "risk assessments".
As to the cost, Nanny doesn't give a stuff about that; the costs are covered by our taxes.
