I was gemused to read in my local rag that Nanny has banned people from carrying tins of paint on buses, as they appear to be a hazard.
Ken Adams (a civil servant in his 50's) recently attempted to board the 5B with a tin of white emulsion.
The driver told him he couldn’t come on, so he had to walk home two miles.
Following a complaint in writing, he received a refreshing email response from Brighton and Hove Bus and Coach Company:
"I am very sorry and you have my heartfelt apologies. They are not fun things to carry long distances and I hope you made it home safely.At least they admit that the health and safety policy is ridiculous!
It is policy because tins of paint are usually heavy and if the bus braked suddenly then they can open quite easily and do damage to the bus. They also have a habit of popping open in direct sunlight.
I know this is another ridiculous sign-of-the-times health and safety policy and not all our drivers adhere to this.”
Sounds like a whitewash to me! (HAHAHAHAHA).
Anyhoo, there is further irony.
Brighton and Hove Council is more than happy to accept paint at its two recycling centres.
So how can one get to these centres?
Oh that's easy, the council recommends that you go by bus!
