Nanny Has Major Sense of Humour Failure


Oh dear Nanny really has a had a major sense of humour failure wrt funds raised for Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust.

It seems that because the funds were raised by men dressed as nurses, the hospital has turned down a donation.

For why?

Nanny believes that their behaviour was "highly-sexualised" and "demeaning".

The Telegraph reports that the men raised £2,500 in the event in Ludlow, Shropshire, which sees them dress up as female nurses and take to the streets with collection buckets.

The fundraising drive for Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust has been taking place without complaint for 30 years, raising around £90,000 in total.

However, Jan Ditheridge, chief executive of the trust, said she is not comfortable with how the event portrays medical staff and refused the donation.

In a letter to the Ludlow Hospital League of Friends, Ms Ditheridge and chair of the trust Mike Ridley, said:
"The presentation of men dressed as female nurse sin a highly-sexualised and demeaning way is wrong, very outdated and insulting to the profession."
Peter Corfield, chairman of the League of Friends of Ludlow Hospital, described the refusal of the cash as "absolutely ridiculous."

He added:
"The event has always run with the full knowledge and support of the hospital and primary care trust management with participation by NHS staff.

The whole thing is a light-hearted fundraiser which has raised between £2,500 and £6,500 each year and so over that period of time it's a very tidy sum."
Ms Ditheridge, chief executive of the trust said:
"It isn't okay to portray healthcare professionals in this way.

We have previously asked that this doesn't happen and therefore don't think it's right to accept any money associated with this activity.

I'm sure the event was organised with the best intentions and we are sorry if it's made people feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.

Many people kindly and selflessly raise money for our organisation, and especially for our hospitals. We are eternally grateful for that."
Dear oh dear :(

Bong!


Oh dear, it seems that the decision to silence Big Ben for four years is down to good old health and safety.

Odd that this has never been a problem before.

Health and safety has managed what the Luftwaffe couldn't!

I would note though, that our "respected" MP's should have known about this when they approved the works order.

Anyhoo, what with the silencing of the bongs, the extinguishing of the lamp on top of Big Ben and tonight's partial eclipse I am wary of a major black swan event coming!

Nanny To Ban Boozing At Airports?


How "ironic" that Ryanair, Easyjet and Panorama are all bleating at the same time about boozed up passengers.

A cynic might suggest that this is some co-ordinated ploy devised by Nanny in order to allow her to ban boozing at airports!

Anyhoo, be that as it may, the BBC and all other major news organs report that Ryanair has called on UK airports to enforce a two-drink limit, after a BBC Panorama investigation suggested arrests of drunken passengers have risen by 50% in a year.

The airline has already banned customers from drinking duty-free alcohol on board (fair enough!).

It seems that a total of 387 people were arrested between February 2016 and February 2017 - up from 255 the previous year.

Needless to say Nanny's Home Orifice is "considering" calls for tougher rules on alcohol.

Ryanair is also urging airports to ban the sale of alcohol before 10am, and to limit the number of drinks per boarding pass to a maximum of two.

Here are a few thoughts:

1 To put the number of arrests (387) into context, annual passenger numbers published by the Civil Aviation Authority show that in total 251.6 million passengers used a UK airport in 2015.

2 Many of the budget airline destinations are to "all you can drink" resorts, as such what sort of passenger do the budget airlines think they will get if they cater to "all you can drink" holiday makers?

3 I and many others can drink like a fish on a plane, but manage not to assault anyone or ending up being arrested. The issue is down to the nature of the cretins who end up brawling.

4 Banning booze before 10am sounds very "modest", yet airports are international and people are travelling in their own timezones where 10:00GMT may in fact be 18:00 according to their body clocks.

5 Limiting sales of pre flight booze, and stopping drinking duty free on board, may to a cynic seem to be a way of increasing sales of on board drinks!

6 Flying is hellish enough, without the comfort of booze it would be an even more joyless experience.

7 Shite airlines that charge for everything, but still cram people in to seats designed for midget, get bad tempered customers.

8 How the hell do they think that they can enforce a two drink limit? People will get their friends to buy the booze, or they will simply get boozed up before arrival at the airport.

All in all this is a coordinated piece of bollocks that will be used by Nanny to impose unenforceable drink restrictions on 251 million people!

Red Wine Limits Flu


Hoorah, it seems that drinking red wine can help limit flu symptoms.

The Spectator reports that a compound found in foods such as black tea, red wine and blueberries can prevent severe flu infections in mice, according to new research published in the journal Science.

The research, by the Washington University School of Medicine, also indicates that consuming the plant flavonoids before flu develops will limit its impact.

So there you have it folks, start drinkming red wine now in order to reduce the risk of a severe flu infection in the winter!

Nanny's £25BN Sin Taxes


Nanny hates the fact that we drink, smoke and eat sugar, but is nonetheless delighted to make money of of our "sins".

In fact Nanny is raking it in. According to an estimate by the Institute of Economic Affairs, in a  report entitled "‘Smoking and the Public Purse", Nanny is set to screw us to the tune of £25BN next year.

With the forthcoming sugar levy expected to raise £500 million per year, the government’s revenues from sin taxes will now total £24.7 billion by 2018. Contrary to popular belief, the three most censured ‘lifestyle factors’ – alcohol, smoking and obesity – do not cost the taxpayer money. The punitive taxes levied on them more than cover the costs they impose on public finances, providing a net saving to the government of £22.8 billion.

Costs and savings from smoking
  • The government spends £3.6 billion treating smoking-related diseases on the NHS and up to £1 billion collecting cigarette butts and extinguishing smoking-related house fires.

  • The government saves £9.8 billion annually in pension, healthcare and other benefit payments due to premature mortality.

  • The government brings in £9.5 billion annually in duty paid on tobacco.
This means that smoking produces a net saving to the government of £14.7 billion a year, at current rates of consumption.

Costs and savings from drinking
  • The gross cost to public services, including healthcare for drinking related diseases and expenditure on public order, is £4.6 billion.

  • The government brings in £10.7 billion annually in duty paid on alcohol.

  • Net benefit: £6.1 billion
Only obesity incurs a net cost to the taxpayer of £2.5 billion a year. Once the sugar levy is introduced this will decrease to £2 billion.

As the IEA notes:
"It may be easy to point the finger of blame at smokers, drinkers and the obese for rising NHS costs, but this no longer stands up to scrutiny given the findings of this report and the levels of taxation now levied on ‘sin’. And by scapegoating these people, campaigners and policymakers risk ignoring the real problem that our healthcare system faces: an ageing population."
There you have it folks, the real "enemy" of the NHS is not boozers/smokers/obese but the elderly!

This of course presents Nanny with a problem, for if we follow her puritanical lifestyle recommendations we will live to a ripe old, dementia ridden, frail age and bankrupt the NHS.

Would it not be more cost effective for Nanny to tell us to drink, smoke and eat ourselves to a youngish death?

Booze Boosts The Brain


My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to an amusing article about booze.

Seemingly a 30-year study by the University of California, San Diego has concluded that over-65s who indulge in up to three alcoholic drinks a day can look forward to a happy and healthy retirement.

In fact, they said, moderate to heavy drinkers are more likely to live to the age of 85 without dementia or other cognitive impairments than non-drinkers. 

Lead author Dr Linda McEvoy is quoted by the Mail:
"This study is unique because we considered men and women's cognitive health at late age and found that alcohol consumption is not only associated with reduced mortality, but with greater chances of remaining cognitively healthy into older age."
The researchers found that people who drank 'moderate to heavy' amounts of alcohol five to seven days a week were doubly likely to be cognitively healthy than non-drinkers.

Cheers!

The Queen Is A Binge Drinker


The Independent revisits an article from 2012 written to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee of The Queen.

According to Margaret Rhodes, the Queen's cousin, HM's alcohol intake never varies. She takes a gin and Dubonnet before lunch, with a slice of lemon and a lot of ice. She will take wine with lunch and a dry Martini and a glass of champagne in the evening.

That comes to 6 units per day, which would make Her Majesty a binge drinker by Nanny's standards.

Nanny states that men and women should not exceed 14 units per week.

If Rhodes is correct, and this is indeed how much Queen Elizabeth drinks per day, then she is on 40.6 units per week.

It warms the cockles of my heart to learn the Her Majesty is sticking two fingers up to Nanny.

Educashun - Less is More!


In an age where every academic institution is called a "university" and every person leaving school is expected to have a "degree" in order to flip burgers, don't be surprised that student debt is so high.

For why?

They have to pay for yacht owning vice chancellors, as per the FT:
"Prof Holmes, vice-chancellor of the University of Bolton, who drives a vintage Bentley Continental, also has a 30ft yacht moored on Windermere and believes academics should not hide their wealth. 

“I have had a very successful career. I hope students use their education to get a good job and then they can have a Bentley. Do you want to be taught by someone who is successful or a failure?” he said. 

Prof Holmes’ taste for luxury is partly funded through an inheritance from his father, a property developer, but he also earned £222,120 in 2016, up from £202,500 the year before."
I am so old that I remember a time when there weren't so many universities, nor students and zero student debt (apart from the debt between parent and student!); because there weren't university fees, and students were awarded a means tested grant.

Less is more!

Nanny Bans Free Air


Rather bizarrely, Nanny's chums in Tower Hamlets have banned the good people of Isambard's Cycles from offering customers free air via a pump.

For why?

It seems that the pump is an "obstruction".

However, if the bicycle shop paid Nanny for providing free air the pump would then no longer be an obstruction!

Drink Booze To Stave Off Diabetes


Well slap me with a fish!

It transpires that, contrary to Nanny's warnings, people who drink three to four times a week are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who never drink.

That is the conclusion of Danish research published in Diabetologia.

Wine appears to be particularly beneficial, probably as it plays a role in helping to manage blood sugar.

Prof Janne Tolstrup, from the National Institute of Public Health of the University of Southern Denmark, who led the research, said:
"We found that drinking frequency has an independent effect from the amount of alcohol taken.

We can see it's a better effect to drink the alcohol in four portions rather than all at once."
Suffice to say, Nanny is sulking and has said that this does not constitute a green light to drink more.

Well, she would say that wouldn't she?

Nanny Outsources Policing To Public


It seems things are so tight in some of Nanny's police forces (thanks to cuts and mind numbing bureaucracy) that they are being forced to outsource policing functions to the public.

The Mail reports that Wiltshire Police will no longer visits scenes of shoplifting in Swindon. Instead shop owners will be asked to take down the details of any offenders and file their own statement to the police along with CCTV.

This comes months after Leicestershire Police announced they had been refusing to attend attempted burglaries at houses with odd-numbers in their own bizarre cost-cutting measure.

The force trialled the scheme to assess the effectiveness of sending forensic officers to a crime scene and found it had no impact on the number of incidents or victim satisfaction.

The more laws Nanny passes, which are then not enforced because she doesn't have the resources, the more ridiculous and impotent she looks!

The Bare Faced Cheek of Gnomes


My sympathies to Lauren Perry, a keen gardener living in Wistatston, who has been ordered by Cheshire East council to remove two garden gnomes from outside his house.

For why?

They are baring their backsides to passersby and risk distracting motorists. 

Mr Perry got a stern letter from officials claiming the gnomes could cause a "distraction" to motorists as they light up at night, and warning they would cause an accident.


They told Mr Perry to clear the offending items within seven days or workman would be called out to remove them - and bill him for the cost.

The letter, from Cheshire East Council senior highways officer Andrea Bickerton, is quoted by the Telegraph:
"It has been brought to our attention that several ornamental displays and items have been placed on the highway verge in Wistaston.

I am sure that your intentions are meant to be humorous and light-hearted. Unfortunately, not everyone shares the same sentiment.

You are required to therefore remove them at your earliest opportunity. If you fail to remove them, the Council will remove them and recover from you the expense of doing so."
The question is, who the hell reported the gnomes to Nanny?

Mr Perry said:
"I feel very disappointed. My daughter bought them for Father's Day as a bit of fun as she knows I like a laugh. These things are in discount stores in their hundreds on shelves.

How can they be classed as offensive? I put them up two weeks ago - no one ever approached me to complain or ask for them to be removed. The next thing I know, this heavy-handed letter arrives.

I've worked with others for four years to turn a piece of land which had been left overgrown, covered in broken bottles and bricks, into a more attractive area. It's all been self-funded as we were turned down for funding by the parish council.

We even bought the sign that says 'Wonderful Wistaston' - now I feel like replacing it with one that says 'Miserable Wistaston'.

All we've tried to do over the past four years is improve the area where we live - and it's all been self-funded. I could get many more volunteers if I wanted, the support on the whole in the village has been tremendous.

But not from the parish council. There are certain people who have lived in communities for many years who don't like newcomers, regardless of their experience.

We placed a nice colourful bench on the land, and it was ripped up a few weeks later for no reason! 

We've put it back since, and concreted it in."
A Cheshire East Council spokesman said:
"While we do not wish to spoil people's fun, there is a safety issue here as such objects could easily cause a distraction to motorists and other road users, leading to an accident.

We received a complaint about these ornaments which, while seemingly harmless, are designed to attract attention and light up at night.

Therefore, we have to take steps to have them removed in the interests of road safety and the safety of pedestrians."
A very sad individual with too much time on his/her hands must have reported it. Such individuals are Nanny's eyes and ears!

The Rise of The Flexitarians


Meat substitute company Quorn Foods says it has seen "unprecedented" global growth in the first half of this year, with sales up 19% worldwide.

The firm says it is benefiting from the rise of the "flexitarian" diet. This means more people have been reducing meat consumption in favour of more sustainable protein sources.

Definition of "Flexitarian":
"A middle class person who virtue signals by pretending to be veggie once in a while."

Nanny Fines Five Year Old - #LemonadeGate


Nanny and her councils can be nasty pieces of work, as Andre Spicer's five year old daughter found to her cost.

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to a summary of what occurred.

The girl was fined £150 by Nanny's gestapo from Tower Hamlets for trying to sell lemonade in the street.

Andre Spicer said his daughter burst into tears and told him “I’ve done a bad thing” after enforcement officers read out a lengthy legal letter before issuing him the notice.

Mr Spicer said four officers stormed up to the table just 30 minutes after the pair had set up the stand, where they were selling one large cup of the fizzy drink for £1 and a small glass for 50p.

The five-year-old and Mr Spicer, a professor at City University, were given the fine for "trading without a permit" after they set up the make-shift stall near their home in Mile End.

After it was contacted by the Standard, Tower Hamlets Council promised to cancel the fine "immediately" and said it would contact the family to apologise.

No surprises there then, when Nanny is confronted she backs down!

A spokeswoman for the council said:
We are very sorry that this has happened. We expect our enforcement officers to show common sense, and to use their powers sensibly. This clearly did not happen.   

The fine will be cancelled immediately and we will be contacting Professor Spicer and his daughter to apologise.”
As I have repeatedly said, councils are the enemies of the people!

Auntie's Socialist Tendencies

 

It seems that Auntie's solution to the gender pay gap (exposed yesterday) is not to increase the salaries of female presenters, but to cut the pay of the male ones.

BBC director of radio and education James Purnell said pay cuts were part of the solution.

He told the BBC's Newsnight programme:
"Quite a lot of men have been taking pay cuts; John Humphrys said that today on air."
Auntie's socialist tendencies are being exposed here, where everyone is dragged down to a lower level.

Pressure Too Much For Robot - It Drowns Itself


My commiserations to the Knightscope K5 security robot which was supposed to patrol the Georgetown Waterfront, a  shopping-and-office complex along the Washington Harbour in D.C.

Unfortunately the pressure of work became too much, and the robot rolled into a fountain and drowned itself!

Looking like a mutant hybrid of R2D2 and a Dalek, the K5 was built to be a crime-fighting robot that could rove the streets and monitor for suspicious activity. It has been used in some offices and malls across America.

ZeroHedge quotes the robot's maker, Knightscope, describes itself as "an advanced security technology company that uses Software + Hardware + Humans to provide its clients with advanced anomaly detection capabilities. Knightscope's long-term vision is to predict and prevent crime utilizing autonomous robots, analytics and engagement." 



All very well and nice, so long as they don't malfunction, are not hacked and don't become self aware.

In the meantime, I dare say some people will now call for support groups for stressed out robots to be set up!

Chinese Nanny Bans Winnie The Pooh


Chinese Nanny appears to have banned Winnie The Pooh from the internet.

For why?

Pooh has been used in the past in a meme comparing him to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Poor old Pooh!

Nanny Bans Ladies and Gentlemen


The phrase 'ladies and gentlemen' is being scrapped from tannoy announcements on London Underground.

Tube bosses want to make the service more gender-neutral and have told staff to use phrases such as "good morning everyone" instead.
We want everyone to feel welcome on our transport network. We have reviewed the language that we use in announcements and elsewhere and will make sure that it is fully inclusive, reflecting the great diversity of London.
Mark Evers, Director of Customer Strategy at Transport for London

Please can someone tell me why the phrase "ladies and gentlemen" is so offensive, when it is clearly being used in a polite manner?

I really don't understand this, am I so old and out of touch?

Euro Nanny Hates Booze


My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me in the direction of an article in the Independent that warns about nanny having a go at drinkers again.

A report by United European Gastroenterology wants alcohol sales to be restricted and minimum pricing introduced.

For why?

Seemingly Europe needs to be weaned off its “deeply embedded” fondness for alcohol.

Apparently Europe drinks more alcohol than any other part of the world and consequently has the highest rate of ill-health and premature death linked directly to it.

Seemingly the Brits are to blame in part (a swelling of national pride!) because of the 24-hour availability of alcohol in the UK. However, we only rank eight in the boozer league (Lithuania comes out top).

Notwithstanding that, Euro Nanny wants evening sales banned, minimum pricing introduced etc etc.

Euro Nanny can F Off!

Humanity Becoming More Cretinous Day By Day


The Telegraph reports that a woman fatally shot her boyfriend in a YouTube stunt to "boost her online profile".

Monalisa Perez from Minnesota claimed after being charged in the shooting that it was a stunt gone badly wrong.

Ms Perez, who is pregnant, was charged on Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Pedro Ruiz III.

According to a criminal complaint, 19-year-old Ms Perez told authorities Mr Ruiz wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting a bullet into a book he was holding against his chest.

She says she fired from about a foot away and then fled the house, screaming.

Is it me, or are people becoming more cretinous day by day?
