Nanny is really rather a stuffy old so and so. On the one hand, she claims that she hates intolerance and prejudice, yet on the other she can be remarkably intolerant and prejudiced herself.
Her best chum, Fungus Clarke the Home Secretary, showed his true colours the other day by writing a very stern letter to Norwich Council complaining about the opening of a new club in the town centre.
What is it about the club that has caused him to complain so vociferously?
Will it serve alcohol after 11PM?
Is it a training ground for Muslim extremists?
Well, it seems that the club is nothing more hamrless than an establishment for those who have a foot fetish. The owner, Roy Singfield, is going to open the "Trample Club" where men will be able to pay for women to walk on them in a variety of footwear.
Not eveyone's cup of teaa, I admit.
But where is the harm?
Isn't that the whole point of a free society, ie allowing people to do what they wish (so long as the law is not broken) in the privacy of their own homes or in a private club?
Mr Singfield said there would be no sex at the club, well we are British!
The club will have a tickling room, a trample room, a dungeon and a fantasy room.
Needless to say, despite the fact that Fungus is Home Secretary, Norwich Council ignored his letter; the club will open.
Good for Norwich Council say I!
The guiding principle with any "non mainstream" activity should simply be, let people do what they want; so long as they don't do it in the street, and frighten the horses!
Nanny's Home Secretary should be concentrating on more important issues.
