My thanks to John, who sent me this story about the goings on in the parish of Threemilestone in Truro Cornwall.
Threemilestone Parish Council have provided a play area, equipped with play equipment, in the locality for very young children.
However, it was recently vandalised by youths putting broken glass bottles in strategic places; such as at the bottom of a slide and amongst the bark chippings, which had been provided to stop children from injuring themselves.
A few weeks ago three of the Parish Councillors were trying to clear this glass from amongst the bark chippings, when a small group of local louts (Scum!) approached them and started shouting obscenities.
One of the Councillors started to take photographs of the youths (Scum!), using his camera in his mobile phone to record the incident.
Full marks to him for his initiative!
Unfortunately, Nanny then decided to involve herself in this matter.
A few days later, these same Councillors received a letter from one of Nanny's chums in the Social Services telling them that they were wrong to take the photos.
Because the Scum were classified by Nanny as being children!!
As John says, it speaks volumes does it not??
Nanny has made the mistake of classifying the vandals as human, their actions clearly define them as sub human scum.
As such, they do not deserve to be accorded the same rights accorded to decent human beings.
I wonder what precisely Nanny would have done if a child had injured himself/herself on this glass?
