As loyal readers know, Nanny is a somewhat cowardly individual; as and when the bright light of publicity and mockery is shone upon one of her daft ideas/petty rules, more often than not she backtracks and claims that it was a "misunderstanding".
I am gemused to see that Swedish Nanny behaves in exactly the same way.
Yesterday I wrote about a Swedish council banning Annica Eriksson (the school dinner lady in Falun) from cooking too well, because her food outshone the offerings of others at other schools.
Needless to say this ban prompted derision and mockery from a large number of people.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, Swedish Nanny has unbanned the ban and claims that it was a "misunderstanding".
The Local reports that at a meeting, held Monday afternoon, Ms Eriksson was told by the nutrition project leader Katarina Lindberg that local authorities would not stand in the way of her aspirations to offer pupils home-made bread and fresh vegetables:
“Annica misunderstood us, of course she can bake her own bread.”She noted that the whole thing was down to a "miscommunication":
"What we've said that the fruits and vegetables should be chosen according to season; it's a matter of taking environment and climate considerations into account."ROFLOL!
Suffice to say Ms Eriksson doesn't believe a word of that nonsense, and knows full well that the council was forced to eat humble pie and serve a large helping of pork pie in their statement.
Lindberg acknowledged that her colleagues were aware of the negative publicity:
“We are all affected by the events and the media attention this received.I advise the people of Sweden to learn the following mantra:
This is about children’s food, that is our future.”
Councils are the enemies of the people!
