What The Fark?
I was in my club (The East India) on Thursday, waiting to meet someone for dinner. However, I had a mild headache approaching (not booze related).
Therefore I asked at reception if someone could give me a paracetamol. A simple enough request?
Seemingly Nanny has passed a law forbidding places such as hotels, clubs and restaurants from handing out any form of painkiller (even Alka Seltzer).
The club was most apologetic, but insisted that this is law.
So there you have it, a middle aged businessman at 6:30PM is denied a simple request for one lousy paracetamol for a headache; whilst in another part of town, a 14 year old will be readily scoring drugs of any description/type or quantity without any interference from Nanny.
Am I the only one who thinks that there is something incredibly wrong here?
When the fark did this absurd law get passed?
Where the fark were the opposition parties in opposing such nonsense?
