Tis the start of the week, and indeed the start of the year (one week in), time for a Prats of The Week Award.
As if by magic, Nanny's chums in the Fareham Shopping Centre proudly present themselves for the award.
It seems that the jobsworths who are in charge of security of the centre are so worried about the threat of terrorism that they have banned photographs being taken, even when the photographs are being taken by grandparents of their grandchildren.
Kim and Trevor Sparshott were ordered to stop taking photos of their grandchildren, because they were causing a security threat. Then, for good measure, they were banned from the shopping centre for life!
They were thrown out of the centre, after they tried to photograph the look of surprise on their grandchildrens' faces when they turned up unexpectedly.
The Sparshotts were taking a break from their home in Spain, and wanted to surprise their family by arriving at the centre, in Fareham, Hants, while they were shopping.
Mrs Sparshottis quoted:
"I couldn't believe it. I was so shocked.
He said we had committed an act of terrorism."
Errmmmm...wouldn't an act of terrorism actually be a bombing or attempted bombing of said centre?
I suppose they should feel lucky that the guard didn't also try to accuse them of being paedophiles, which is the normal response from Nanny when a parent/grandparent/adult tries to photograph a child these days.
Jobsworth actions like this merely aid the terrorists.
Fareham Shopping Centre, well deserving Prats of The Week.
