Nanny Bans Stairs
Here is a rather daft example of Nannyism from my beloved home town of Croydon.
I pooped into the bar of our local theatre (The Warehouse) the other day, it has been a couple of years since I had a drink in there, and saw that the upstairs bar had been closed down a while ago.
Aha, can you guess?
Yes, that's right, our old "friend" health and safety!
It seems that the health and safety officers of our council have deemed that the stairs were too steep, and they banned the stairs (the only access point to the rather cosy upstairs bar) from being used; hence the bar had to be closed at some expense.
Now here are a couple of points that kind of make that judgement look daft:
1 The stairs have been used for the last 20 years, without any form of injury
2 If the stairs were not so steep, how the hell would they reach the next floor?
However, as you can see from my fight with Croydon council over the arena project, Croydon council wanted The Warehouse shut down anyway. I suspect that this was one of their nasty little tricks to try to shut the place down.
Fortunately the council failed on both counts!
