Nanny's Top Ten


Chris Grayling, the employment minister, has published the 10 "most bizarre" health and safety bans which have come to light since he took office just over a year ago:

1. Murray Mount closed at Wimbledon because of rain
2. Butlins ban on dodgem cars from bumping into each other
3. A ban on Royal wedding street parties
4. The removal of a bulky TV from a pensioner's home
5. Carnivals with fancy dress parades
6. Kite flying on a popular tourist beach in east Yorkshire
7. Stopping pupils from going on playground monkey bars
8. Using pins to secure commemorative poppies
9. School football games without a sponge ball
10. Children banned from the sack race on sports day

Good for the H&SE and for Grayling for publishing these!

  1. seriously, i know in many activities there is a small chance of injury, a pricked finger, falling over your sack on your face, being hit by a football, but i mean for god sake what is the point in living without a little risk!!! People with scars love telling their stories and what kind of society will be end up with if people are worried all the time about what might happen if god forbid they hurt themselves a little bit! I do cheerleading and regularly have people falling on me or smacking me in the face, i end up covered in bruises and laugh at the memories!!

    We are the state; do as you're told or we'll 'ave yer!

    I also think that there are two problems that have led to this risk free 'elf'n'safety culture;

    1) Ambulance chasing solicitors and a large number ofwilling clients looking for free money.


    2) 'Elf'n'safety officers looking to empire build and to feed their need to boss others about; a hi-viz/peaked cap's dream.
