The Times recently noted that one of their correspondents endured a "Nanny moment" on the underworld railway.
Upon entering the train at Westminster a number of adults were standing.
The seats, including those marked for the elderly and disabled, were all occupied by children (aged between 8 and 10).
To make matters worse, the children were accompanied by their teacher who should have told them to give up their seats.
Now, when I was a lad, I was told to give up my seat to adults.
Ah, but how wrong I am.
You see, this is Nanny Britain, health and safety is the new doctrine (designed to crunch individuality and freedom). Seemingly the teacher was operating under the mantra of health and safety that dictates children must be seated, even if there are elderly people standing.
What a nice lesson to give to the children!
