Lawks a Mercy!
I plum forgot that yesterday was Shrove Tuesday, when people the length and breadth of the country are tossing like mad.
Did you all have a good toss yesterday loyal readers?
The good people St Albans of didn't.
Our old fiends from health and safety intervened.
St Albans holds an annual pancake race.
This year was no exception, aside from one small fly in the oinkment.
Charles Barker the tourism manager from St Albans council appeared at the race, complete with high vis jacket and clip board (so you knew he was "important"), and told the competitors that they must walk, not run.
The council decreed that because it had been raining people might slip over, ie there was a health and safety risk.
The announcement was greeted with much booing and derision. However, sadly, only three people disobeyed the council and ran, the rest walked.
The race had been held in the town since 1445.
St Albans council clearly are a bunch of tossers!
