It seems that Nanny now believes that all adults are paedophiles, that at least is the inference to be drawn from the problems that Janice Turner of The Times has encountered at her local primary school swimming hole.
She noted that last week her son, and 7 other boys, were banned from swimming.
They had the wrong trunks!
Her son chose to wear long surfer-style swimwear, which he has worn on many other occasions to other swimming areas.
However, Nanny's lifeguard was concerned that the pockets could fill up with water (yes that would be likely in a swimming pool) and pull him under.
However, the real reason for the ban was given by her son's teacher.
Nanny disapproves of these shorts because they may come off in the pool, not that they have ever done so before.
Should they fall off, this will afford adults a glimpse of her sons privates; Nanny of course believes that all adults are paedophiles.
Do not be alarmed that the ban is only aimed at boys, the ban is not sexist; the school also bans girls from wearing anything other than black and navy blue swim suits, lest they go transparent.
Janice poses the question:
Which is the bigger danger: the real one of a generation of children barely able to swim, or the largely imaginary one of predatory paedophiles lurking by the side of every pool?
The problem with Nanny's attitude is that creates a high level of fear in the minds of children, towards adults.
That surely can't be healthy.
