Well it's finally happened, Nanny has "flipped her lid".
In what can only be described as the most ridiculous and daft of edicts to have ever issued forth from Nanny's troubled mind, Nanny has decided to ban pencil cases.
Yes, pencil cases!
Nanny's chums at St Anne's Primary School in Denton, Greater Manchester, have banned pupils from taking in pencil cases; after one of their pupils was accidentally stabbed with a letter opener, by a fellow pupil, who had concealed the opener in a pencil case.
Glenys Dyer, head teacher at St Anne's, said:
"We have banned all pupils from bringing pencil cases and their contents into school to prevent any other potentially harmful instruments being brought into the classroom."
She said the decision to exclude the child sent a:
"clear message to both the child and the school community that this is unacceptable behaviour which we take very seriously."
No Glenys, what it says is that you and Nanny are idiots.
What about compasses?
They are dangerous, are you going to ban geometry lessons as well?
What about cutlery, used in the canteen?
Cutlery can be used as a weapon.
Are you going to ban lunch?
Oops, sorry, I forgot that Nanny has already banned metal cutlery on planes. Ever tried eating a steak with a plastic knife...thanks a lot Mr Bin Liner!
At the end of the day, banning pencil cases is utter bollocks.
What a sorry state we are in.
