This time the health and safety Gestapo have goose stepped their way to Bucknell village railway station, which for several decades has been garnished with flowers etc by members of the Bucknell Women's Institute.
Despite the fact that no one has ever had an accident tending the floral displays, Nanny's chums from Network Rail have now decreed that the WI's actions are contrary to health and safety regulations. Network Rail have ordered that the ladies stop their activities until they complete a risk assessment, arrange insurance and sign a five-page licence restricting their activities.
They will also need to have safety training.
Is this Victoria station?
Ermmm...no...a "staggering" 8 trains a day use the station, at a mind blistering 2mph.
Word on the street has it that when representatives of Network Rail confronted the ladies at the station, the manner of the representatives was not that "polite".
Bully boy tactics from failing state enterprises are not what we expect from our brave new "big society".
