Come Squeeze My Cox's Orange Pippins
I am ungemused to see that Nanny, in her quest for maximum health and safety, has taken steps to erode yet another part our national culture and heritage.
This time Nanny has taken umbrage at the cries of market traders.
Nanny is concerned that traders who yell their wares and prices to passing punters may damage the hearing of those around them.
Nanny's chums from North Lincolnshire council have banned stallholders at Scunthorpe Market from shouting about their lovely pears etc etc.
The Mail reports that greengrocer Simon Stanley has been banned from the market and given a £1,000 legal fee for breaking the rule. Others have also faced the threat of bans and legal fees.
It seems that the council is using a new charter as the bedrock for its "right" to ban the cries of market traders.
There is one wee problem with the charter, it was imposed without discussion on the traders and not one of them has signed it; ie the council has turned dictator.
Councils are the enemies of the people!
