As Nanny proudly beats her breasts (can I say "breasts"?) about her forthcoming Olympic propaganda show in 2012, it comes as more than a surprise to me to read that one of her local councils has deemed that that the swimming of lengths in the local council pool (kind of useful for those training for sporting success, or just wanting to keep fit) has been banned.
For why has it been banned?
Can't you guess children?
Yes, that's right, health and safety!
Swimmers at Dagenham Swimming Pool in Essex (run by Barking and Dagenham Council, for once not Tory but ZaNuLabour) have been banned from lengths, primarily to make the job of the life guards easier (in the event they have to pluck someone from that water).
The pool is 33.3M by 25M (hardly ginormous!), and has been open for donkey's years.
Seemingly the council are balking at the idea of having to keep an extra lifeguard on duty for lengthwise swimming.
The council claim that it's not just about health and safety, but also because "most people" don't want to swim 33.3M.
