Oh dear oh dear!
Not content with trying to stop people swimming in lakes and rivers, Nanny has now decreed that paddling pools (ie those public areas with usually less than 12 inches of water) present a clear and present danger to the health and safety of children.
Can you guess what Nanny wants to do children?
Yes, that's right, she wants to employ lifeguards at these pools!
Failure to employ a lifeguard may mean that the pools will have to be closed.
Nanny has told our "beloved" and "respected" local councils (her frontline storm troopers in her war against the people) to drain their pools, or put trained lifesavers on site.
By way of example, Carmarthenshire Council has been told its eight pools must have the same safety cover as a beach.
Is Nanny totally bonkers, or has she been smoking something "special"?
I well remember using my local paddling pool to sail my model ships etc. Never once did I drown. However, my mum was always with me when I went "paddling" (just in case I drowned in the 8 inches of water) so maybe therein lies a possible solution????
Here's a radical thought, why not let parents be responsible for the health and safety of their kids rather than the state.
