There is nothing more pleasurable for dear old Nanny than to poke her interfering nose into a harmless pastime, that has been innocently enjoyed by "her charges" for centuries.
Nanny seems to get a real buzz out of this form of interference.
Anyhoo, this time she has decided to set her sights on a jetty on the River Deben; where children have been catching crabs since Norman times.
The local council, in their infinite wisdom, have decided that this activity is highly dangerous.
They have banned it!
This highly "dangerous" activity has been taking place on a 50 yard wooden pier, which has served as a passenger ferry terminal for Felixstowe Ferry and Bawdsey, for the last 1000 years.
During the 1000 years, children have used it for crabbing.
However, Nanny does not give a toss for history or indeed for the fact that there have been no serious injuries there.
Nanny, after all, does know best!
Indeed she has not only banned crabbing, but fishing and swimming as well.
What a miserable, selfish and joyless person Nanny is.
