Nanny Bans Union Jack
I have been running this site for yonks (since 2004 in fact), and have therefore become somewhat enured (there's a word I don't use often enough) to Nanny's idiocies. However, occasionally Nanny does something so idiotic that even my elephant hide skin is sufficiently pricked for me to issue forth a trumpet of rage.
Thus I draw your attention (on this fine Monday morning) to a truly absurd piece of Nannyism, courtesy of Nanny's chums from Fylde council (click the tag "Fylde" and you will see they have featured before on this site).
Peter and Lesley Salthouse run the Naze Lane Chippy in Freckleton, and have (as part of their shop front advertising) a Union Jack sign in the window.
Nothing wrong with that is there?
You would think not, wouldn't you?
However, Fylde council have ordered the Salthouses to remove the sign?
Apparently it contains too many "angles, triangles and colours"!
Isn't that what a Union Jack is actually made up of??
The council have decreed that the sign is "out of character" for an English village!
As I have noted many times before on this site, councils are the enemies of the people!
