Nanny really is pathetic at times, her rules and regulations seek to sap the very spirit and sense of joy out of people and out of their lives.
Elaine Richards (a retired district nurse) made a cake for friend of hers, who is 96 and a regular at an Age Concern Day Centre in Barnstaple Devon.
Nothing wrong with that I hear you say...
How wrong you are!
You see, the cake was made at home and in Nanny's view the home is a very dangerous place (she can't control it you see!).
Therefore the cake was banned.
Ms Richards was told, when she arrived with the cake, that it broke hygiene regulations and that the OAP's were only allowed to eat cakes bought from shops.
Ms Richards said:
"It's nonsensical. I couldn't believe it.
I have a family of four who will vouch for my cooking.
The worst anyone has had is indigestion!
My cakes are healthy.
The rules are completely daft."
Andrea Scott of Age Concern, said:
"We have many frail and elderly come here and some are diabetic.
If we let one person do this, the floodgates are open.
We don't know where these cakes come from.
If something went wrong, we could be sued."
Ms Scott said that Age Concern was supported by the local environmental health department.
Here we see how pathetic Nanny's rules are, the day centre is quite happy to allow their clients to eat shop bought cakes.
Why would a shop cake, no doubt filled with all sorts of chemical shit and made by people on a production line, be any safer than a homemade one?
As said, the reason for banning the cake has nothing to do with people's health or wellbeing, it is down to the fact that for moment Nanny can't control what happens in people's homes.
She absolutely hates that!
Needless to say Ms Richards and her friend consumed the cake at home, outwith Nanny's malign influence.
Those of you wishing to try the forbidden cake might like to know that it contains the following highly dangerous ingredients:
-6oz unsalted butter
No doubt all of the above will be banned in the near future!
