Won't Someone Think of The Children?

The sad thing about living in a Nanny state is that it seems to leach some people's senses of humour out of them, especially when it comes to Nanny's child centric fetish.

Step forward the good people of the Black Lion pub in Leighton Buzzard, who put up an amusing chalkboard sign that said staff would nail children who are running around to the table.

Clearly anyone with half a brain can see that this was written tongue in cheek.

Sadly some people haven't got half a brain. Debbie Bird, editor of, told The Mirror it is important young children are ‘exposed to social events’ such as pubs and restaurants, and that she considers the sign to be aggressive.

One anonymous Facebook user suggesting the owners of the pub should be ‘arrested for promoting child abuse’.

How absolutely pathetic!

Children who are being a pain in the arse should not be in pubs, period!

    What a load of politically correct poppycock! As you say, Ken, it should be obvious, even to a village idiot (am I still allowed to use that term?) that this was in no way intended to be taken seriously. However, I also take the view that, if you have children, you should be required to ensure they behave in a civilised manner, especially when attending functions at which other people are present. Sadly, far too many "parents" seem to subscribe to the view that their children should do what they like, no matter how much nuisance or danger they are to others. No doubt those who complained about this sign would be the first to want compensation in the event that their children's unchecked, unruly behaviour resulted in the child or children injuring themselves.

    I left Britain in 1978 and back then children were not allowed in pubs. That was just fine with me. I recall when I was a nipper, I understood that and it became a sign of growing up when I was allowed in these wonderful places.

    There are plenty of places where kids are allowed, that serve alcohol and food. They are called restaurants.

    As for the sad trolls who appear to take that sign literally - just roll your eyes move on. Sadly, there is nothing common about sense.

    People of my generation would read this notice and take it to mean "Keep your kids under control if you bring them in here." We would also laugh......As a nation, we used to be known for our good manners and sense of humour however, we have had a sense of humour failure, since the left has started to meddle using social engineering to change our nation towards the nasty socialist utopia they long for.

    In my opinion, letting children into ordinary pubs was a terrible thing; I used to go to the pub to get away from screaming kids.

    Hey Debbie: If you don't like the aggressive nature of the sign, don't use that pub. It is rather simple really....Now, if you put one foot in front of the other alternating with the other foot, you will find you are walking.....Is there anything else I can help you with?

    I've had the honour of drinking a few "thirds" in there. Proper pub with real ales, and the option of a taster selection of thirds if you can't make your mind up.

    And the sign works, because it was surprisingly devoid of children. Which only added to my enjoyment.
