It is good to know that Nanny cares so much for the welfare of the young that, not only does she ensure that they are not touched in any inappropriate way (since all adults are paedophiles), she also makes sure that when the "little rascals" misbehave they do not suffer the consequences of their actions.
Unfortunately for the rest of the population (ie the adults) this can make life a tad tedious, especially when violent scumbags are allowed to run amok without due punishment.
Liz Jones, a headteacher at Abbey Manor College in Lewisham, realised the imbalance in the law recently when she suffered a shattered cheekbone after one of Nanny's "darling little angels" punched her in the face.
Liz's crime was to tell 16 year old (an adult by most people's standards) Dexter Hungwa to close a door. He then punched her so hard that she was sent flying across the room with a shattered cheekbone, he also shouted obscenities at her.
Hungwa escaped a jail sentence, despite admitting causing grievous bodily harm.
Instead he was given a 12 month community punishment and rehabilitation order, electronically tagged and ordered to keep a curfew at his South London home between 8.30pm and 7am.
Needless to say, Ms Jones said the failure to send Hungwa to jail was "like being punched again".
"It has no regard for either public safety or the safety of anybody else in my position.
Any teacher, any head, anybody working with young people is vulnerable.
It leaves me with very little faith in the criminal justice system.
It undermines our work, the work of the police and the work of crime prevention generally.
When there is a serious offence,
it is not being treated seriously and so, as the victim,
it's like being punched again."
Seemingly, Hungwa sniggered when interviewed by police about the incident.
One union claims that a teacher is attacked or verbally abused every seven minutes.
Some might argue that scumbags like Hungwa should be given a sound thrashing, until their violent streak is well and truly broken, but as we all know folks Nanny does not permit violence in her "perfect" world. Unless of course the violence is being perpetrated by "young" adults or children.
