Nanny Bans Daffodils

Nanny Bans DaffodilsIt seems that Nanny must have some form of hayfever, or had a particularly unpleasant experience with flowers in her childhood, as she has decided to ban daffodils.

According to Nanny's chums at the Strood Civic Centre, daffodils are "politically biased".


Staff at the centre told Valerie Jewess, who was taking in a bunch of daffs to display there, that she could not display her flowers as yellow is the colour associated with the Liberal Democrats.

Whilst I realise that we are in the middle of a General Election, I do think that is taking things a little too far.

After all, each party (both mighty and small) have a particular colour in their brand; you cannot ban all colours.

Or maybe you can?

    The first thing that came into my head when I read this was the song 'Painting the Roses Red' from Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

    Nanny, knowing best, is perfectly entitled to ban all flowers with party political colours, which presumably means that we could only have grey or black flowers?? Or perhaps these colours would be offensive to elderly citizens and ethnic minorities...

  2. Plaid Cymru might have a thing or two to say about this.

    As for me, I'd rather risk strolling through Baghdad than vote Lib Dem, but Daffodils are my favourite flower.

    Crumbs, I just rode past acres and acres of yellow oil seed rape. I hadn't realised it was actually propaganda.
