Sometimes Nanny does something which, even by her standards, is so monumentally stupid that the term "Twat" can only be applied.
This time her lackeys in Nanny's Republic of Glasgow have come up with a real wheeze (there's a pun in there if you look hard enough).
You will recall that Scotland is a few steps ahead of England in respect of banning smoking? Well yet again the Scots are leading the way in extending this ban.
Smokers in Glasgow are being urged to extend the nationwide smoking ban in public places, to their own homes. A project, running since December, in the city's east end has managed to harangue 50 people into signing up to make their homes smoke free.
Seemingly residents can "earn" a gold award by making their home entirely smoke free, or silver by having a dedicated ventilated smoking room.
Do these people lead such sad lives that the award by Nanny of a gold star really gives them a kick?
Get a life!
The project aims to protect families and young children from the effects of passive smoking.
Now if only we could have a project to protect us from Nanny, that would be something!
Nanny is currently targeting families with children aged under five, you can bet that she will extend her target area in the near future.
Agnes McGowan, principle health promotion officer (tobacco) with NHS Greater Glasgow, said:
"It has been very well received.
Smoking is normalised in communities and a way to deal with stress.
We say, you can protect your family."
Rather ominously, Nanny's chums in Glasgow City Council have visited 143 premises since the introduction of the ban.
Do they have a right to do that?
The local authority didn't issue any penalties, but said it was "a little disappointed" at a lack of no smoking notices.
A spokeswoman said:
"That's part of the legislation and we'd expect to see a bit more attention by owners to that area over the next few days."
What will they do if they find people smoking I wonder?
The scary thing is that we are paying these people's salaries!
