Nanny Bans Shampoo

Nanny Bans ShampooMy thanks to one of my regular readers who sent me an email about some Nanny nonsense going on at his son's school (see below), he wishes for the school and his name to remain anonymous.

As he says, it is all bollocks!

Anyway, I thought that these products were tested on animals first?


"My 8 year old Son has just started to go on swimming lessons

at school year 4.

(He already takes swimming lessons).

During the after-swim shower, he was told he wasn't allowed to use any soap,

shampoo or body-wash due to health & safety after all he might be allergic,

or other children might be...

So the sole purpose of the shower seems to be to rinse off the pool water.

The stuff he uses is "hypo-allergenic" anyway so it is all bollocks!

The daft thing is that I'm a school Governor and put up with this crap

    I'm surprised they allow them to use showers, given the prevalence of water systems to be source of so many nasty things like Legionnaire's Disease and similar.

    Do these people understand nothing about risk?

    And I'm surprised they even let the children go swimming; or even get out of bed; or even be born; or conceived. It's a dangerous world out there!

  4. Methinks some of Nanny's minions have gotten into trouble retrieving dropped soap...

    After swimming in a (presumably cholorinated) pool ALL you need to do IS wash off the pool water. I don't see why you need soap...

    I'm surprised they haven't drained the pool to avoid any drowning incidents while the kids are swimming!!

    Ah, but then it would constitute a hazard as you might fall into it and hurt yourself when you hit the bottom (am I allowed to say 'hit the bottom' Ken?)
