Tis a Monday morning, and the wheel of life strafes my buttocks with a vengeance. Time to see what nugget of Nannyism I can deride today.
Let me see...oh yes..
Dear oh dear, universities certainly seem to have become somewhat prissy since I was a lad.
The University of Glasgow, once a proud bastion of the drinking classes, has had an attack of Nannyism and suspended a programme on its student radio station Subcity, and removed details of the show from the station's website.
Well it seems that the last edition of "Party Party" (that might give you a clue as to the subject matter), which was transmitted between 2100 and 2200 GMT on Sunday night the other week, involved a very "lively" discussion about drink.
It seems that the presenters claimed to be drinking a litre of tequila, swore (surely not!) and explicitly discussed sexual activities.
The presenters did manage to promote (once) the "responsible drinking" website Drinkaware. However, they then went on to encourage listeners to drink a shot of spirits for every tune they played.
Been there, seen it, done it!
We (students of Edinburgh) used to play a game watching the Alec Guinness film "Tunes of Glory", everytime someone in the film had a drink (and they did very frequently!) we had to have a shot of whisky.
The university, having completely lost its sense of humour, said that:
"If the contents of this particular programme are found to have breached the station's code, disciplinary action will be taken."
Tim Dye, chair of the Student Radio Association, said:
"Unfortunately when you give creativity and freedom to some people they run off with it."
Sounds to me as though he wants to limit people's freedom?
People are also free to turn off their internet radios if they don't like the show.
