As loyal readers know I have written several times about the daft rule introduced last year by Nanny, that forbids parents to take their kids out of school during term time, lest they be punished by a fine and possible criminal record.

As I have noted, when was a wee nipper it was a simple matter of common sense and a discussion between the parents and the school as to whether it would be permitted.

However, under the iron rod of Nanny (can I say "rod" before the watershed?), common sense has long since been abandoned. Sadly there is yet another case of absolute buffoonery caused by Nanny's daft rule, as Maxine Ingrouille-Kidd has found to her and her son's cost.

Ms Ingrouille-Kidd has been threatened with a fine of up to £120 and possible prosecution if she takes her son Curtis (13, who is a blind quadriplegic and has cerebral palsy) out of school during term time.
Doctors have given Curtis a few years to live, and warned he may only survive until his late teens.

Ms Ingrouille-Kidd is quoted by the Telegraph:
My son is 14 in October and this may well be his last holiday.
I asked for a holiday request form and was absolutely flabbergasted and shocked when the response was ‘no’.
Unsurprisingly, following media pressure and a campaign on Facebook, Somerset Council has now said it would speak to the school regarding the case.

It is quite ridiculous that this issue has arisen in the first place, common sense dictates that this should be a simple matter of a discussion between the school and the parents.

It is knobheadery in the extreme!

    Poor Curtis. Frankly I wonder why the chap has to go to school at all; can't be any fun; least of all for him. He might be much better served being on holiday all the time; out in the fresh air and sunshine of Somerset making the best of the time that he has been allotted rather than having daft "specialist" teachers stuffing his head ready for a life he is not going to have.

    Are those jobsworths who enforce these rules callous by nature, or do they develop this by working for Nanny?
