Who Needs a Nanny State?
Just as I thought I'd put my dangerous ear exploits behind me, Lisa sent me this picture. I have often bemoaned the excesses of the nanny state, what with over enthusiastic Health and Safety restrictions and almost every aspect of our lives subject to the closest scrutiny. "What idiot needs a sign like that?" I would have railed against the television, had it been an item on the Channel 4 News. But now I find I must skulk to front of the crowd, stand on that soap box that I am too fond of proclaiming from and 'fess up the answer to that question "I do, I need a sign like that."
