My thanks to several loyal readers who pointed me in the direction of a really absurd piece of Nanny nonsense, concerning cheese.
Britain has many traditions/events, some of which go back centuries. Sadly, in the age of Nanny, many of these are now frowned upon (lest they encourage individuality and freedom of expression).
One such event that Nanny does not like is the annual cheese rolling event on Cooper's Hill Gloucester, which involves people chasing a 7lb wheel of Double Gloucester down the hill this bank holiday weekend.
For the last 25 years the cheese has been made by Diana Smart at Churcham Farm.
So far so good!
Step forward Nanny's chums from Gloucestershire Police, who have warned Mrs Smart that she may be regarded as "responsible" as "organiser" if anyone were to be injured during the cheese rolling.
"It made me feel pretty angry... there's not a lot we can do."A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said:
"Advice has been given to all those who have participated in any planning of an unofficial cheese rolling event this coming bank holiday.Glad to see that in the midst of all the other national crime headlines, that the Gloucestershire Police have their priorities "right"!
This included the individuals who provide the cheese.
We feel it is important that those who, by law, could be constituted as organisers of the event that they are aware of the responsibilities that come with it so that they can make an informed decision about their participation."
