Nanny's Park Rangers
Nanny's child centric policy has taken another step forward.
She has decreed that all unaccompanied adults walking in Telford Town Park are potential paedophiles. As such, park wardens have been ordered to stop and interrogate anyone who is not accompanied by children.
For fark's sake!
Evidently visitors who are quizzed have to explain their presence and risk being thrown out, or reported to police if their answers are not satisfactory.
"I want to go for a walk"
How the hell can they judge as to whether that answer is "satisfactory" or not???
Nanny's local council (Telford and Wrekin Council) claims that this is a "commonsense approach", aimed at safeguarding children.
It is nothing of the kind, and clearly oversteps the boundaries as to what a council is meant to do.
I guarantee that the local residents have issues wrt refuse collection, and basic amenities being poorly maintained; yet the council meanders off into areas of policy that are outwith its remit.
The local "parkies" have taken to their new Gestapo role with great relish. Evidently two environmental campaigners, dressed as penguins (don't ask!), were thrown out of the park last month when caught handing out leaflets on climate change.
Telford and Wrekin Council said Rachel Whittaker and Neil Donaldson were ejected because they had not undergone Criminal Records Bureau checks or risk assessments before entering the park.
Seemingly this is a requirement under the Child Protection Act.
Errmm...am I drunk?
Have I just read that correctly?
Are they saying that in order to enter a park we now need a risk assessment and criminal records check?
By the way, in case you think that this is another example of Nu labour madness...it is not.
Telford and Wrekin Council is run by the Tories!
David Ottley, recreation manager, said:
"Our town park staff approach adults that are not associated with any children in the park and request the reason for them being there.
In particular, this applies to those areas where children or more vulnerable groups gather."
By this "logic" all adults accompanied by a child are not paedophiles and are perfectly harmless.
