Nanny does seem to have a bit of a thing at the moment about sweets and diet.
Not only does she consider sweets to be bad for the health, but she now has decreed that they are also weapons of mass destruction.
Well dangerous weapons anyway.
Think I am kidding?
Nanny held her big debate on Iraq last week.
However, it was interrupted by a furious woman from Unison storming onto the podium complaining about being banned from bringing sweets into the conference.
"I want to know why I have been stopped from bringing a bag of sweeties into the conference. It is bureaucracy gone mad!"
It seems that Nanny was worried that they could be used as missiles.
I also undertsand that an elderly lady had a bag of Mint Imperials confiscated, for fear that she might create mayhem by rolling them along the floor.
