Nanny Bans Grandparents
You know we do seem to live in a very strange country indeed, ruled over by a bureaucratic "elite" who appear to be totally disconnected from real life.
On the one hand, if the media are to be believed, care homes for children allow their residents to routinely go missing for hours/days at a time without any action/reaction.
However, when some grandparents have the "temerity" to send their estranged grandchildren a birthday card the state weighs in with the vigour and force of the Witchfinder General.
Such are the cases highlighted by Jane Jackson, a grandparent living in Bristol, who runs a support group for grandparents.
She claims that some grandparents who send cards and presents are threatened with arrest for "harassment", and that some other grandparents are asked to attend police stations where their DNA and fingerprints are taken.
Mrs Jackson said she had been contacted by 'a handful' of grandparents who had been arrested or threatened with arrest, but claimed there were more who were too scared to speak out.
The issue comes down to Nanny draining all commonsense out of the system. Whilst it is clear that real harassment needs to be dealt with, there are areas (at least to my simple mind) where if some commonsense were applied the state would not need to be so heavy handed with most of these hapless grandparents that Mrs Jackson is campaigning for.
As noted before, Nanny is devoid of commonsense.
