Nanny is up to her old tricks again.
This time one of our greatest Naval heroes, Admiral Lord Nelson, has caught her gimlet eye.
Admiral Nelson, as you will recall gave the French a right old drubbing at the Battle of Trafalgar 200 years ago this October.
To mark the 200th anniversary there will be a re-enactment next month at Southsea.
However, Nanny's chums from the political correctness brigade have put their oars into the event (a nice little naval pun, don't you think folks?).
Nanny has decided that she does not want to offend the French, and so the re-enactment will be between a red fleet and blue fleet; not the French and British.
So much for Nanny's ambition to educate people with facts.
Nanny has also meddled with the official literature. It describes the re-enactment not as the battle of Trafalgar but simply as "an early 19th-century sea battle".
What utter codswhallop!
In the 1805 sea battle off the coast of Spain, Nelson's 27 ships destroyed a combined French and Spanish fleet of 33 ships. The British lost no ships but sank or captured 22 of their opponents' vessels.
Although Nelson died in the battle, his victory paved the way for Britain's naval supremacy, which lasted a century.
Nanny is a fool.
The French are, as we can see from Sunday's EU vote, perfectly capable embarrassing themselves; we don't have any desire, or need, to do that.
