Nanny Bans Caps

Nanny Bans CapsAs we all know, Nanny has something of a bee in her bonnet (if you will pardon the pun) about hoodies.

In her view they are the devil's spawn, and should be banned. That being said should you be worried that Nanny has become a sad single issue obsessive, fear not.

Nanny has also got a bee in her bonnet (again with the lousy pun Ken!) about caps. That is at least what Liz White found to her cost, a few weeks ago, when she went to her local pub.

Liz went to the Woodman Pub in Old Catton with her husband for a drink.

Unfortunately she was wearing a baseball cap. Nanny's special chums at the bar told her to remove it as they have had trouble with yobs before, and operate a "no caps" policy.

Fair enough you might say. However, think on, Liz is in fact 55 and wears the cap to hide her hair loss from the cancer treatment that she is receiving.

Landlord Darren Reilly, who was not working that night, said:

"Staff follow procedures

and have not been trained to deal with a situation like this

Take a moment and read what he said again, then think about it.

"Not been trained.."!

How much training does it require to recognise that a 55 year old lady with cancer is not a 16 year thug?

Here you see a fine example of the damage to society caused by the Nanny state, rules and procedures are put in place that encourage people to stop thinking.

Nanny is turning us into a nation of mindless, moronic jobsworths.

Reilly said:

"It's a shame this has happened.

I wish I had been on the bar that night.

Rules are there to be broken at the end of the day

    such stupid and insensitive rules are indeed there to be broken, and so are the people that make them. I am told that "I was only following orders" was a common excuse around 1945/46.

    Have to agree with Ken and Anonymous 1 (Maybe 2 as well buit that drifts off to another topic ...) BUT then again being a chap of similar age to the lady concerned (according to my birth certificate) I have to wonder about her choosing a cap as a head covering. There must have been other forms of head covering available which might have prompted more forethought from the staff on duty.

    Or maybe not ... says a lot for the eductaion system doesn't it, especially teh softer end of it - citizenship and all that stuff.

    Or maybe the staff on duty were just making a point?
