In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money etc"
In days of yore, owls, pussycats and any other life form could go to sea without too much interference from Nanny (aside from some sensible rules wrt ships/boats etc).
However, Nanny has now decided that the rules that apply to ships/boats must also apply to all other craft that touch the water's edge.
Surfers, canoeists and families using dinghies could face jail if they are involved in an accident under plans to subject them to the same Department for Transport (DfT) safety rules as oil tankers and cruise liners.
Now before, quite correctly, people state that there are some right idiots out there who put themselves and others in extreme danger by their reckless disregard of safety etc; I would point out that I agree.
My father was in the Merchant Navy, my uncle was in the Royal Navy and my grandfather was in both the Royal and Merchant Navy; I fully get the point about idiots putting people's lives at risk at sea.
However, by applying rules that are meant for tankers and ships etc to all sea vessels/and craft (including surfboards) Nanny is making herself look very foolish indeed.
The real focus of the safety concern is jet skis, which are a complete menace when handled by morons and drunks. These should be subjected to the legislation.
