The Dangers of Health and Safety
One of the recurring themes, that serves to annoy all those who oppose the Nanny state, is the "health and safety" excuse used by all manner of jobsworths to refuse to do something and used by councils and insurance companies to screw the hapless voters out of ever more cash.
Sadly, aside from the financial and life sapping consequences of the health and safety culture that Nanny has constructed, there are at times real dangers from it that prove to be fatal.
Gabrielle Grady, a five year old girl, was recently trapped for almost two hours in a car that had plunged into the river Avon because health and safety rules prevented police from entering the water to rescue her.
West Mercia police stated that safety regulations barred normal police officers from jumping into rivers to try to save people (although they did enter the water to rescue her brother who had managed to get out of the car). Hence 97 minutes were lost whilst a police dive team were located and transported to the scene (they took 12 minutes, once on site, to rescue Gabrielle).
Gabrielle's funeral was held yesterday.
