'Tis a "sunny" and "cheerful" Monday morning, therefore what better time than to award one of my prestigious and internationally renowned Prats of The Week Awards?
This week it goes to West Dunbartonshire Council.
Just ask the teachers, parents and children of Gartocharn Primary school, who were trying to enjoy their sports' day recently.
To make the occasion extra special the school decided to hire the services of the London Olympics chief starter (Alan Bell), who was going to use a starting pistol to start the various races etc etc.
However, he and the school had reckoned without the health and safety Gestapo from the council.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, Nanny banned the use of the starting pistol.
The council were worried that the sound would frighten the children!
Have the council never watched kids at firework shows?
Kids love bangs and loud noises!
The council's solution?
To play a recording of a starting pistol from an iPod, or at least that was their "solution" until they were persuaded that they would like like complete morons if they went ahead with that. Instead a klaxon was used.
West Dunbartonshire Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
