Nanny Bans Bouncy Castles

Nanny Bans Bouncy CastlesThose of you who enjoy a good bounce, should avoid Fife in Scotland.

Nanny's chums in Fife Council have ordered schools, leisure centres and community centres not to allow anyone using their premises to hire inflatable castles for parties, fetes and gala days.

This bizarre ban, they claim, has been forced on them for health and safety reasons; after a number of children were injured on bouncy castles over the summer.

However, safety experts at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents said it would never call for a ban on the castles. They have a more pragmatic solution, namely telling parents to ensure children "jump with care".

Ken Greer, the senior education manager at Fife Council, gave this pompous quote to the media:

"We have set a policy on bouncy castles, as there were a number of accidents involving them in the summer.

It was decided, because of health and safety issues,

that there should be a moratorium on using bouncy castles

Utter bollocks!

No wonder children seek thrills by playing on railway lines.


  1. I am sure that there must be a lot of danger in walking along the pavement or going upstairs to bed. If these idiots have their way we shall all be wrapped in cotton wool at birth to stay there until we die.
    Except for politicians of course.
