Nanny Bans Sandcastles

I was less than gemused to read that Locog wasted £5K of taxpayers' money on building a sandcastle on Weymouth beach.

However, I was even more ungemused to learn that the sandcastle was promptly demolished after being photographed.

For why?

Health and safety reasons!

T'was a collective decision to destroy it, taken between Locog and the local council

Then why spend all that time and money building the farking thing in the first place?

    Now, I really have heard everything! What planet do these lunatics come from? What possible danger can be posed by a sandcastle for goodness sake? I can only assume they were deprived of the pleasures of building sandcastles as children, and in revenge, are attempting to pass that deprivation onto as many others as possible, although I see no reason it should cost £5,000 or anywhere near this amount. Isn't this the same council which, a few years ago when someone fell into the harbour, and a passer-by jumped in after him to pull him out, fined them both? 'Rules are rules, sir!' I thought our illustrious prime minister promised that his government was going to put a stop to this sort of nonsense? I wonder whether the council involved are as meticulous in removing the real dangers posed by potholes in the local roads, or uneven paving slabs, potentially a source of real injury, especially to the elderly or disabled? No,I thought not!

    I read this stpry and thought it was a wind up.

    The jobsworths stated that they feared it would fall over and harm someone if left; it was very big.
    A sensible commentator asked why it couldn't have been roped off so that people could see it but not be harmed by it; the jobsworths stated that had they roped it off, they would need to employ security guards to keep people away.......Only in our country!

    We are the state; do as you're told or we'll have you.

    Some people really do deserve a good kicking.

  5. I wonder if the fluorescent-jacketed numpty who decided it was a 'elf 'n' safety risk is traumatised from having their own sandcastle stamped on by a bully when they were a 5-year old, so they now have this irrational urge to destroy all sandcastles?

    As we can see from the photo..
    ..they had no 'elf & safety problem with small kids being next to 100 tons of sand whilst it was being built.
