Nanny Bans Old People
Nanny views the old and fat in much the same way, of little value and a drain on her time and resources.
Whilst the fat, in Nanny's view, can be bullied into losing weight; the old cannot be made young and productive again.
Therefore it should come as no surprise to learn that Nanny's henchmen from Broomleigh Housing Association, which owns sheltered flats in Mottingham South London, have decreed that the benches that a group of elderly residents sit on to have a chat may be removed.
Seemingly the noise of them talking annoys other nearby residents.
Nanny believes that the elderly residents who sit and chat on the benches are being an anti-social nuisance.
The housing association claims that has received several complaints over the past two years about noise from the group, the oldest of whom is aged 96.
Ann Reddy, 69, said:
"How could I possibly be capable of anti-social behaviour?
When I told my doctor that we might be having our benches taken away, he asked me if I had been drinking. We don't drink and sit on walls throwing cans of lager around the place.
We don't sing in the middle of the night. It's unbelievable."
Julie Schoon, assistant director of supported housing at Broomleigh, said:
"As a registered social landlord we are responsible for ensuring that any complaints of noise nuisance or other forms of antisocial behaviour are acted upon.
Following a number of complaints from residents over the last two years we have worked hard to try to mediate between those involved.
We are very reluctant to remove any of the benches and would view this as a last resort. We are currently talking to residents and considering various solutions to try to resolve the issue."
The lesson from this sorry little tale is clear, once you become old you are considered to be a bloody nuisance and a waste of space.
They shoot horses don't they?
I suspect that were the "chatters" to be under the age of 16 (and thus falling within the "what about the children?" child centric policy of Nanny) the benches would most certainly not be removed.
