Nanny Bans Photos Again!
Nanny's photo police have been up to their old tricks again, ever fearful that an innocent photo of a child may in fact be for nefarious purposes.
Nanny rigidly follows her mantra "Won't someone think of the children?"
Sheila Campbell, the 85 year old mother of Nicky Campbell (a TV personality), found this to her cost recently when she went with her 4 granddaughters (aged between 5 and 10) to the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh.
Mrs Campbell was happily about to take a photo of them when, blinky blonky blimey, one of Nanny's pool attendants popped up from nowhere and forbade her from taking a picture.
There were no other children nearby, therefore it was clear that she was taking a picture of her own grandchildren.
Mrs Campbell was worried that the attendant, were she to take the picture, would have confiscated her camera.
She is old enough to have been in the last war, when we fought against this sort of thing. I wonder if she now feels that the sacrifices that she and her contemporaries made were worth it? My late father (who was in the Atlantic convoys) used to look at how the state (and its minions) behaves, and would muse that the effort and sacrifice had been for nothing.
Nicky Campbell said:
"I am sorry.... I don't think my mother looks like a paedophile or a terrorist."
A spokesman for Edinburgh Leisure, that runs the swimming pool, claims that there is no ban on photography. Therefore why did the lickspittle of an attendant ban Mrs Campbell from taking the photo?
Were the attendant to seriously believe that Mrs Campbell was taking a photo for evil purposes then surely he should have reported her to the police, and had her camera searched for evil pictures. The fact that he didn't shows that he had not the slightest thought in his head about this, other than the power rush a little man gets when he is given a tiny amount of power over another human being.
These "little man" jobsworths need to be expunged from any position of control/power they may have.
