Nanny Warns "Keep Your Hand On Your Stick"

Commiserations to Nkosana Mdikane, 74, "Scotland's happiest lollipop man" (due to his singing and dancing at work) who has been banned by Nanny's chums from West Dunbartonshire Council from high fiving kids.

For why?

Health and safety!

West Dunbartonshire Council are quoted by the BBC:
"All patrollers are instructed when crossing children over a road to remain static with one hand on their stick and the other stretched outwards. This ensures that they can be seen and effectively provides a barrier between school pupils and the traffic." 
Read that again...
" hand on their stick..."
Ooer missus!

A parent speaking to the BBC Scotland news website said:
"Because our children want to go and see him [Nkosana Mdikane] they all cross at the pedestrian crossing, rather than anywhere else on the road, so he's keeping our children safe. 

Also because he's such a 'larger than life' character the cars pay more attention too."
There is also a Facebook group named "Save the high fives", which has gained support from almost 3,000 people since it was set up on Wednesday afternoon.

Nanny doesn't have any commonsense, and wants to crush individuality!

  1. Poor kids. They are learning that even the smallest amount of happiness and magic will be snatched away by the state. If there is a more malevolent force on earth than the state, I haven't seen it.

    Rotten miserable jobsworths!

  3. "and effectively provides a barrier between school pupils and the traffic."

    Uhhh... I think members of that council failed physics. An effective barrier would be concrete pillars of some sort. A person, not so much.

    My comment is probably not even worth writing since it's so self-evident but.... hasn't he got one hand on his stick whilst high-fiving with the other or is he getting so carried away that he's double high-fiving even as his stick is clattering down on some kid's head?
