Nanny has an obsession with education, she claims that she wants the highest standards of education to be available for all.
The fact that, in many cases, the education system is failing the children of this country seems to have passed her by.
Anyhoo, as with many of Nanny's obsessions they tend to be somewhat schizophrenic and contradictory.
Nanny's chums in Fareham Borough Council have got themselves rather worked up over noise pollution. They won't have the peace and quite of their borough disturbed by extraneous and unwelcome noises.
Excessive traffic, noisy neighbours and noisy industrial equipment are a blight on society.
However, Nanny applies her rules to all noise creators; without fear or favour.
As such, Fareham Council have decided that 70 toddlers constitute a noise pollution threat. The toddlers play in a nursery garden, created by £2K public donations, next door to Jim Habens.
Habens has complained to the council about the noise, and the council have acted.
The toddlers must now only play in the garden for two half-hour slots a day, and the nursery Wendy house will have to be sound proofed.
Apparently, if these rules are not followed, the council will then implement a noise abatement order.
I wonder if this is really the best way to start children out on their long road of educational learning and discovery?
