The Dangers of Bunting

2012 will be a busy year for celebrations and parties, not only do we have the Olympics but we also have the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and yet another lavish TV series by Lord Fellowes to watch.

All of these events are prompting people to plan street parties.

Needless to say Nanny has poked her bony finger into the planned celebrations. She is worried about the hanging of bunting, and has demanded that those who wish to hang bunting go on professional  health and safety courses that teach them how to mount (or is it climb?) ladders.

For good measure these courses will also teach us how to carry out the risk assessments required to put up tables for a street market.


Thus the good people of Petersfield Hampshire will have to attend a course called Safety With Ladders, which covers the Health and Safety Executive Work at Height Regulations 2005.

The hapless participants are shown how to set up a barrier around a ladder to stop people bumping into it, and how to position someone at the bottom of it to warn others the ladder is there.

Needless to say, there is a charge for the course.

    I think you'll have a long wait, Microdave, and you too, Ken!

    As has been observed before, Nanny cannot abide seeing people happy and enjoying themselves, which is the only way of explaining why we keep having this kind of excrement imposed on us by her minions.

    My Lord,

    Nanny fears that if people realise there's more to life than work and that parties and other activities can be fun, Nanny fears her over taxed beasts of burden, may not so readily keep providing her with cash.

    I remember in 1977, going up a ladder and onto the roof to provide my street with bunting; myself and another free thinking person, were on opposite sides of the street, throwing the bunting and the weight attached to it, across the street from roof to roof......Mind you, Nanny hadn't brainwashed everybody into being weak, risk averse, bubblewrapped twats back then.
