Nanny Bans Plastic Cutlery
I must admit that I had thought that I had seen the end of this absurd piece of Nannyism from our "rule creating" supermarkets, wrt asking for id for teaspoons etc.
How wrong I was.
I am told by one of my correspondents (aged 25) that this time our old friends from Tesco (one of their stores in Liverpool City Centre) has asked for proof of age id (whereby the store operative signs off that the purchaser is over 18) for cutlery.
I suppose it can be argued that as cutlery contains knives, that could be construed as a potentially dangerous purchase.
However, here's the rub, the cutlery for which age id was required was not metal, wood or ivory but PLASTIC!!!
Why can't a child (a person under 18) buy plastic cutlery? They seem well able to buy drugs, booze, weapons and porn without much bovver.
You can join the Army before you are 18, yet Tesco won't let you buy plastic cutlery until you are 18.
Nanny doesn't need to enact any more legislation to take away our personal freedoms, her apparatchiks in supermarkets etc are doing all her work for her!
BTW, I can't be bothered to register to look through the Tesco site but am advised that for some reason or other the plastic cutlery cannot be found on the Tesco site. Can anyone validate this?
