Nanny Kills Common Sense

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to an appalling example of Nanny nonsense, emanating from Legoland in the Trafford-Centre.

Legoland has a policy of banning adults without children from the attraction (on the principle of guilty until proven innocent).

For reasons best known to itself it also decided to apply this policy to Simon Thomason a 40 year old man with cerebal palsy and with the mental age of seven, who used to enjoy visiting the centre with his carer. As such his annual pass will not be renewed next year when it expires, even though he has been going there for 7 months.

Mr Thomason would be allowed in if he went with a child, but he is sadly not capable of looking after himself (let alone a child) without a carer.

A spokesman for Legoland is quoted by the Manchester Evening News:
"Our policy not to permit entry to groups of adults, adult couples, or lone adults, regardless of circumstances, who are not accompanied by a child or children under the age of 16 is we believe therefore appropriate and the best way to constantly maintain a welcoming environment for our young visitors.

We make no apologies for this policy and believe it to be reasonable and appropriate, and one on which we make no exceptions.

That said, we also very much appreciate the continuing appeal that Lego has for all ages, and it has never been our intention to deny access to our adult fans, or cause distress to anyone.

That is why we regularly host evening events specifically for adults in order to showcase specific attractions within the centre and these are very well attended.

We hope very much that all adult guests will join us at one of these sessions and we are sure that he would very much enjoy it.

However if an evening event is difficult for him to attend then if his family make contact we would be happy to agree a time when one of our managers is available to show him around.
Nanny has killed common sense!

    Where are all the human rights lawyers complaining about this? Surely there is a case for discrimination?
