Nanny is rather a strange old lady, isn't she?
Some things, which are trivial to normal folk, really get her dander up; yet others, which you would consider to be important, don't seem to excise her as much as they should do.
One such case in point is her interpretation of the new European hygiene laws, in relation to abbatoirs.
Nanny's chums in the ever watchful Food Standards Agency (FSA), those fine people who gave us the Sudan scare a wee while ago, are making sure that they zealously interpret every letter of this new law.
It is claimed by the Forum of Private Business that more than a third of abattoirs may face closure, because of the actions of the FSA.
The Forum say that some of the abattoirs are being expected to install better hygiene equipment than hospitals.
Given the MRSA issue this seems a tad odd, don't you think?
The Forum are so worried about the situation, that a group of its members will travel to Brussels to find out for themselves how the new standards should actually be interpreted.
Nanny really ought to get her priorities sorted out.
