Nanny's Donkey Inspectors
My thanks to one of this site's regular visitors who advised me of the following piece of Nanny nonsense that happened in Fylde, on the eight mile stretch of beach between Blackpool and Lytham St Annes, over this summer.
It seems that Nanny's chums in Fylde borough council are "investing", I of course mean wasting, £18K of taxpayers' money on health and safety "experts" who will check the safety of donkey rides and other seaside pleasures.
Nanny has set them the onerous and "worthwhile" task of looking into the risks associated with the above activities, as well as doing a thorough health and safety check on such dangerous activities as:
- tossing a Frisbee
- practising golf swings
- collecting and sawing up driftwood
Seemingly the council have said that every aspect of beach activity would be examined and assessed.
If necessary, guidelines would be issued to allow them to be enjoyed in a safe manner.
As ever, Nanny is wasting our money on pointless pursuits.
