Nanny Bans Glass
Full marks to Nanny's chums in Kingston Council, who have banned the use of glass outside of pubs.
Yes I am being sarcastic!
Eva and I were paying an evening visit recently to one of the waterside hostelries there, whose barmaid asked me if I was intending to drink outside or inside.
I said outside.
She advised me that I would have to have a plastic cup for my beer, as the council were worried about yob behaviour.
I noted that a yob was just as likely to do damage inside as well as outside with glass, and she agreed.
Rather ironically Eva's wine was served in a glass. I asked about this, and was told that they had run out of plastic wine glasses.
I noted that this rather made a mockery of the rules, a point that was fully agreed with.
Next week Nanny will be banning knives, forks and plates.
