You know how Nanny keeps entreating us to exercise more, so that we don't become a nation of fat bastards?
You would have thought therefore that Nanny would have been well supportive of Sam O'Shea (10 years old) who wanted to cycle to St Paul's Primary School in Portsmouth, wouldn't you?
Well my old muckers, you would be wrong.
St Paul's banned him from cycling, claiming:
1 They had nowhere to store bicycles, and
2 The roads were too dangerous to cycle on in the area.
Here's why the above reasons are complete bollocks:
1 Sam and his parents were on TV last night discussing the issue face to face with one of the governors and headmistress of the school (in front of the school gates), it was a rather testy discussion with the headmistress saying "you don't want to see it from our point of view". Sam pointed to a purpose built storage area for bikes that had been erected (can I say "erected"?) only recently; they do have storage facilities.
2 It's not the school's responsibility to dictate to parents what is safe/unsafe outwith the school gates. Sam's parents are the ones who must decide if the roads are safe for him to cycle to school.
St Paul's Primary School, well deserving Prats of The Week.
