St George Slays The Dragon

St George Slays The DragonThe majority of articles on Nanny Knows Best show the seemingly unstoppable encroachment of Nanny into our lives, at times it seems that there is nothing that can be done to stop her.

However, once in a while, a ray of hope (such an awful phrase don't you think?) illuminates the darkness.

E tenbris lux.

One such ray comes in the form of Phil Moffatt's victory over ever popular, and "respected", Liverpool council.

Mr Moffatt, owner of Churchill's Food Emporium in Tuebrook, has traditionally flown the flag of St George every St George's day (which is tomorrow folks). However, Nanny's chums in Liverpool council had tried to stop him doing it this year.

They claimed, and I doubt that this was the real reason, that the flags constituted a health and safety issue. They were going to fine him £1K, if he went ahead with his plan to fly 20 flags this year.

Mr Moffatt stood firm, and won.

Nanny has backed down, and Mr Moffatt will be able to fly 20 flags.

This shows that Nanny can, like the dragon, be slain.

My compliments to you Mr Moffatt.

    Englishmen hardly ever 'stand firm' - at least not since 1776! The EU, VAT, the ghastly Poll/Council tax, unchecked third world immigration, disarmament of the law-abiding homeowner while criminals prey on the weak & elderly at will and the highest fuel prices in the civilised world; need I say more?
