The Dangers of Skating Clockwise
I could not help but "titter" (can I say "titter"?) when I read this daft Nannyism a while ago. It seems that Stirling Council has a thing about ice skaters who skate clockwise.
The council deems it to be a health and safety hazard, and as such have banned clockwise skating during public skating sessions at the £27M sports complex (The Peak) which is meant to be used for training for the 2012 Olympics.
Also banned during "skate for all sessions" are; speed skating, figure skating, jumping, spinning and chains.
Not much scope for practising for the Olympics there then!
Precisely why this complex, allegedly built to help people train, needed quite so much money spent on it is therefore is a bit of a mystery.
Needless to say, the skaters are going elsewhere to train (where the rules aren't so daft).
