Of prime concern to Nanny is the fact that there are not enough street parties being organised, especially in the North, to celebrate the forthcoming Royal Wedding.
It seems that London will have more than 500 street parties, whilst Manchester and Newcastle will muster only 28 between them.
Nanny is urging councils to forget about licences, insurance and other red tape so that people could "get on and have fun", as the Prime Minister put it.
That just shows how little the government understand how local councils operate. The councils have no intention of abandoning the red tape, they hate public events like this and will do all they can to hinder them.
My own local council, Brighton (Tory run), refuses to publicise where our street parties (over 20 of them) will be held.
They claim that they don't want people coming to these events uninvited!
Isn't that the whole farking point of a street party??
Anyhoo, aside from council bureaucracy there are also two other reasons why there are fewer "organised" parties in the North:
1 It is wet at this time of year there.
2 The locals despise their councils even more than we do down South. Therefore, there is not a cat's chance in hell they will tell their councils that they are organising a party.
Enjoy the day folks, and ignore Nanny's petty little rules!
