Nanny Bans Rafts

Nanny Bans Rafts
Our "favourite" organ of Nanny, the Health and Safety Gestapo, have donned their jackboot again.

This time they have put the mockers on the River Rother Raft Race (try saying that when you have had a skinful). This is a charity raft race, which has never suffered a serious accident in its 27 year history. However, Nanny (in the shape of the council and police) has put her hobnails into it and insisted that:

- competitors wear £35 sea-going life jackets (they do wear buoyancy aids, and it's not the sea),
- lavatories be provided for the disabled,
- the 3.75-mile course be fenced to stop spectators falling in

Lat year it raised £13K for charity. However, no more money will be raised as the demands made by Nanny are simply too much for the organisers.

Another local event/custom destroyed by Nanny and her dreaded Health and Safety Gestapo.

Nanny will not be content until we are all placed in cotton wool coffins.

    Nanny always has to interfere....She feels a need to have to be seen to be doing something, no matter how stupid she looks.
    I suspect Nanny's biggest objection to the rafting event is that people might actually enjoy themselves and, in Nanny's eyes, that just won't do.

    As someone who enjoys river and lake swimming, I can empathise with these latest victims of the health and safety gestapo. In my opinion, these tossers don't have the guts to do anything like this themselves, but seem to have such sad, inadequate lives that their only pleasure appears to be spoiling other peoples enjoyment.
    Instead of banning this raft race, which I imagine brings a great deal of enjoyment to others, as well as raising money for charity, society would be much better off if we got rid of these health and safety parasites. As we are now in a recession, and many people may well lose their jobs, couldn't we start with these health and safety fascists?
