Nanny has lectured us for quite some time now about the evils of our poor diet. Yet she has been saddened and shocked by the fact that we just keep on ignoring her, what a shame!
Well she is fed up with being ignored like this, she is after all only trying to help us live "better" lives.
To this end she has decided to take a more proactive approach.
She has decided to ban chocolate.
Nurses working for Barnsley Hospital Care Trust have now been banned from buying chocolate. The ban affects 3 hospitals in the area; chocolate will no longer be sold in the staff canteens, as part of a health drive.
This rather nasty, and spiteful, attempt at restricting an innocent pleasure may in fact be just the tip of the iceberg.
You see Nanny now employs around 7 million people in the UK, that is quite a large section of the population over which she can exercise control.
I have a suspicion that those who work for Nanny will soon see other areas of their private lives restricted, as she takes a more proactive approach to enforcing her narrow views about how we should be living our lives.
