Nanny Bans The Swedish Chef

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to a story regarding my old residence (1996-2000) of Sweden, wherein Swedish Nanny has got her knickers into a twist over the most excellent cooking of Annica Eriksson, a school dinner lady at a school in Falun.

The local council ("municipality") has banned her from cooking certain dishes.

For why?

They are too good!

Pupils at her school regularly dine on freshly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables.

Sounds good, yes?

So what is the problem?

Well you see folks Sweden practices (so it claims) "equality" (the price of a social democratic system), wherein everyone is meant to be equal and treated equally. The result of this being an unfortunate flaw in the Swedish psyche; namely that if a Swede sees another Swede doing rather well for him/herself, the green eyed monster raises its ugly head (ie jealousy).

The local Nanny council banned Ms Eriksson from cooking certain dishes, because Nanny knows that other schools in the area don't eat as well and deemed it "unfair".

Now in the real world competition often improves the quality of services or products that people receive. However, in Nanny's world it is easier to simply hold people back from doing their best; because Nanny doesn't want to (or can't) make the effort to improve.

Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper:
"A menu has been developed... It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same." .
As you can see, the state is doing its best (as it always tries to do) to hold people back from improving their lives.

Ms Eriksson is not best pleased:
"It has been claimed that we have been spoiled and that it's about time we do as everyone else."
From now on the school's vegetable buffet will be halved in size, and Ms Eriksson's handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.

Her traditional Easter and Christmas smörgåsbords may also be under threat!

As I have noted many times before, councils (wherever they are based) are the enemies of the people!

    So, as far as I can work it out, the local Municipalities policy on the standard of school meals is that they should not be cooked to be as good as they might be, and anyone making the effort to improve that standard should be disciplined and made to do a half arsed job.

  2. Boo hoo hoo: they've got something I haven't got, Nanny take it off them Boo hoo hoo.

    It never ceases to amaze me how socialists always want to drag people down rather than facilitate helping people up.
    I had always worked to better my lot and to profit from my efforts......If I was starting off in the big wide world today, I'm not sure I would bother.

  3. I believe 'Ms Lindberg' is a pseudonym for Diana Moon Glampers - Handicapper General - [See Wiki - "Harrison Bergeron" -for details]

    1. Very good with the 'Handicapper General'quote. It spelled out this sickening retorik to finality.
