Tinsel Trasher

Nanny Trashes TinselNanny's friends at Chipping Sodbury school, in Gloucestershire, managed to ruin their pupils' Christmas this year.

The school decided that the traditional wearing of tinsel, around the necks, by the pupils was in fact dangerous; and therefore banned it, citing "health and safety grounds".

It seems that, according to Nanny's friends there, the tinsel presents a strangulation risk.

If that is the case, why does the school uniform include a tie?

    Maybe the boys need to wear ties so the girls can strangle them in case of trouble, but you wouldn't want the boys to get the upper hand by providing them with equal strangleholds on the girls, now. (Or is it just American nannystaters that believe males are inherently evil?)

    By the way, how strong is British tinsel? I can't imagine strangling anyone with the American version. But we do have Scrooges trying to ban festive costumes.
