Nanny Bans Sacks
Oh dear, Nanny's drive to eliminate competition (winning and losing) from our lives took a sinister new twist recently.
On the pretext of our old "friend" health and safety, Nanny's chums at John F Kennedy Primary School (I didn't know he was British?) banned children from taking part in sack and three-legged races at their school sports day.
Seemingly Nanny is worried that they may hurt themselves.
Simon Woolley, head of education at Beamish in County Durham, said:
"We looked at a three-legged race and a sack race but what we want to do is minimise the risk to the children.
We had to assess which of the activities were liable to cause a risk. We thought we would be better to do hopping and running instead because there was less chance of them falling over."
Earth to Woolley...children fall over; it's called growing up you prat!
I fell over lots of times, scabbed my knees then took great joy in picking the scabs off...I am now approaching 46 and still have the use of all of my organs (yes indeed!).
Nothing got infected, fell off or got permanently damaged despite numerous falling overs and scab pickings...why only the other day at Embankment I slipped on the wet floor arse over tit, and bruised/grazed my legs and other parts...yet, I recovered fine (I didn't sue either).
What is the matter with these knobheads?
Why do they deny children the pleasures and activities that they so freely participated in decades ago?
This is not the way to prepare children for adulthood.
