Hoh Hoh Hoh - Australian Nanny Bans Santa

My commiserations to the good people of Australia who have to endure Nannyism every bit as annoying as our Nannyism.

Now that we are approaching the season of goodwill etc, it should come as no surprise to learn that Australian Nanny wants to ban the traditional activity of kids sitting on the lap of an overweight, red faced stranger.

Step forward child protection activist (what is a child protection activist, is this an official role or something that she has made up?) Hetty Johnston who is quoted by The Courier Mail:

What we would like to see is shopping centre owners updating their child protection policies.

The directive would be for children to stand beside Santa, unless parents or children request to sit on his knee. Shopping centres have duty of care to protect children on premises.”
Given that the knee sitting takes place in front of the kid's parents and assorted elves etc, what exactly does she think Santa is going to do to the kids?

The lesson that the kids will learn is to never trust any adult. That is not a healthy lesson!

    I think that the easiest way of making sure that your kids keep away from dodgy looking adults is to take them to see Father Christmas.

    2 minutes at a shopping centre in the company of a fat, sweaty, miserable bastard, dressed in red and smelling of whiskey and fags usually cures them of believing in fairy stories.

    My kid hated him and would not stop crying.

    I quite agree with you, Ken. Even the most predatory pervert isn't going to try anything with any kind of audience present. This seems yet another example of the "all men are evil" agenda that Nanny seems to espouse. The danger is that this kind of nonsense will lead to situations where children really are in need of help but are too fearful to approach any adult for such aid. In any case, most child abuse is not carried out by strangers, but by someone known to the child, often someone within his or her family.

  3. I can't help wondering why in these days of gender equality we don't have female Santas or have I missed something?
