Nanny Bans Banner

Commiserations to The Carron Fish Bar in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, home of the deep fried Mar's Bar.

Nanny, in the shape of Aberdeenshire Council, has taken exception to the banner outside the shop that proudly proclaims it invented the deep friend Mars Bar.

Nanny wants the banner removed.

For why?

"For the good of the community"

What the fark does that mean?

Carron Fish Bar owner, Lorraine Watson, is quoted by the BBC as saying that the proposed ban was "ridiculous" and she would "definitely not" be taking the banner down.
"Thousands and thousands of tourists come from all over the world to purchase the deep fried Mars bar from the birthplace.

They stand outside under the banner with their Mars bar, smiling from ear to ear, then go home and let all their friends and family see it.

We have no idea why the council would want this banner taken down, bearing in mind it takes thousands of visitors to the town.

Isn't that what we are trying to do? Aren't we trying to boost tourism in Scotland?"
Aberdeenshire Council issued Mrs Watson with a letter:
"Following a thorough walkabout and inspection, an action plan has been drawn up.

Many of the actions would fall to individual property owners and one of them relates to your property. What needs to be done: Remove banner."
A spokesman for Aberdeenshire Council said:
"Together with a range of community organisations we have been looking at ways to improve the look of Stonehaven for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors. 

An action plan has been created in conjunction with the Stonehaven Town Partnership, Community Council, Stonehaven Business Association and the Horizon Group.

As part of the action plan we have asked some owners in the area to consider making alterations to their properties. This included asking the owners of The Carron Fish Bar to consider removing their banner.

We do not wish to prevent the owners from promoting their business and we would be happy to have discussions with them regarding the banner."
Leave the banner in place, and stop being so anal about it!

  1. "This included asking the owners of The Carron Fish Bar to consider removing their banner."

    We considered it and decided it's staying. As we've done what you asked, please don't contact us again.

    Would be a good, non sweary answer

    Bucko: Not so simple in Nanny's Brave New World. When Nanny "asks" or "advises" people to do something, what she actually means is, "You are hereby ORDERED to comply ....or else!

  3. I know :-)
    Might force them to say what they actually mean though?
