Nanny Bans Cakes

Nanny Bans CakesNanny really is pathetic at times, her rules and regulations seek to sap the very spirit and sense of joy out of people and out of their lives.

Elaine Richards (a retired district nurse) made a cake for friend of hers, who is 96 and a regular at an Age Concern Day Centre in Barnstaple Devon.

Nothing wrong with that I hear you say...

How wrong you are!

You see, the cake was made at home and in Nanny's view the home is a very dangerous place (she can't control it you see!).

Therefore the cake was banned.

Ms Richards was told, when she arrived with the cake, that it broke hygiene regulations and that the OAP's were only allowed to eat cakes bought from shops.

Ms Richards said:

"It's nonsensical. I couldn't believe it.

I have a family of four who will vouch for my cooking.

The worst anyone has had is indigestion!

My cakes are healthy.

The rules are completely daft

Andrea Scott of Age Concern, said:

"We have many frail and elderly come here and some are diabetic.

If we let one person do this, the floodgates are open.

We don't know where these cakes come from.

If something went wrong, we could be sued

Ms Scott said that Age Concern was supported by the local environmental health department.

Here we see how pathetic Nanny's rules are, the day centre is quite happy to allow their clients to eat shop bought cakes.

Why would a shop cake, no doubt filled with all sorts of chemical shit and made by people on a production line, be any safer than a homemade one?

As said, the reason for banning the cake has nothing to do with people's health or wellbeing, it is down to the fact that for moment Nanny can't control what happens in people's homes.

She absolutely hates that!

Needless to say Ms Richards and her friend consumed the cake at home, outwith Nanny's malign influence.

Those of you wishing to try the forbidden cake might like to know that it contains the following highly dangerous ingredients:

-9oz flour
-6oz unsalted butter
-6oz sugar
-three eggs
-candied peel
-lemon zest

No doubt all of the above will be banned in the near future!


  1. Ah Ken, you have forgotten, flour, in particular flour coloured purple, is used as a dangerous missile to throw at Blairy when we are all fed up to the back teeth with him and his cronies!!!

    And also don't forget that the other dangerous missiles are eggs, thrown in the past at "Two Shags" and also "opus dei" Kelly.

    So in reality, cakes will shortly be classified by Blairy as WMD's!!

    Easier explanantion.

    It has nothing to do with the food content of cakes at all.

    As we all know cakes have been used since time immemorial to hide files which have been use to cut through metal bars and make escapes.

    The last thing the Nanny and her minions want is for their victims, er - people, to escape from their vice-like.

    Age Concern, and many other so called charities as well as organistions like the WI, have long since been taken over by those with hidden agendas for politically correct but 'back room' politics. Influence and effect without the risk of headlines of Prescottesque excesses.

    Also an alternative way to net a gong of some sort.

    I'm utterly disgusted by the attitude of the staff at this day centre although, sadly, I doubt whether this is an isolated case. Apart from the fact that the cake, being home-made, was almost certainly more nutricious and delicious tasting than what is normally consumed in this place, I also consider the attitude of the staff to be a gross insult to the kind person who spent time and energy preparing and cooking the cake in question.

    "Needless to say Ms Richards and her friend consumed the cake at home"

    I'm not sure that consuming the cakes at home is acceptable. The cake having been offered and refused by a responsible authority (viz Age Concern) became, by that very act, a "non-consumable" and should have been disposed of at the earliest opportunity in accordance with the regulations of the Health and Safety Executive.

    Regulations of the Health and Safety Executive? It occurs to me that we all need to use paper whilst visiting the bathroom, and I cannot think of a better use for this particular item!
