Those who fought Nazism and the threat of dictatorship in the last war may be wondering today whether their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their fallen comrades, was really worthwhile.
Nanny's Health and Safety Gestapo have taken up the mantle, which was once worn by the dictators of the last century, and have threatened to ban remembrance parades as they fall foul of Nanny's health and safety rules.
Organisers of these events have been told that the marches cannot proceed unless they take out public liability insurance, carry out a risk assessment and organise stewards dressed in fluorescent jackets to police the event.
Seemingly Nanny is worried that the veterans, who risked life and limb for our liberty, are not capable of walking down a street without inflicting upon themselves some terrible injury.
You see, Nanny hates independent thoughts and actions. Those that seek to organise themselves, without her "help" and "guidance", are seen to be a threat to Nanny.
The effort and cost required to comply with Nanny's rules and regulations will force many veterans' associations to cancel ceremonies.
Members of the 8th Destroyer Association in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, have already been targeted by Nanny's police. Nanny's police have threatened to ban the event unless the organisers agree to pay £300 for insurance, and to file the necessary paperwork.
Read that again.
A British police force is threatening to BAN a peaceful and honourable gathering of war veterans, who fought for our freedom and liberty.
That is simply WRONG.
Veterans Association chairman, Peter Lee-Hale, said:
"We've been marching for 18 years now and never had this before.
The police have provided motorcycle escorts
and everything has been fine.
Now health and safety has reared its ugly head.
What's going to happen on Remembrance Day
when there are so many marches around the country?
Are they all going to have to do this?
The £300 is not a lot of money really,
but it's the hassle of it all.
I'm 73 and one of the younger members.
Most of them are in their late 70s and 80s
and it is a lot to cope with.
The whole thing is ridiculous.
We're only marching less than a mile.
We went to war to fight fascism
but it's our police who are acting like Hitler."
North Yorkshire Police said:
"We are concerned with the safety of everyone involved in the parade
including those taking part, spectators and our own officers..
...but safety is of paramount importance."
The march organisers have been told they must be accompanied by two lines of stewards in fluorescent jackets, and have an ambulance in attendance.
Mr Lee-Hale said:
"I could understand it if we were a bunch of yobs marching through the town,
but what trouble do they think an 80-year-old ex-sailor is going to cause?"
Last year poppy sellers were banned from pinning flowers on people's clothes, in case they cause injury.
Nanny is as much a threat to the freedom and liberty of the people of Britain, as the Nazis were some 60 years ago.
The question many veterans must be asking themselves now is why did we sacrifice so much to fight for freedom and liberty, if that freedom and liberty has been taken away from us by our own government?
