SHELLS are being removed from a Mornington Peninsula beach after a foreshore committee deemed them too dangerous for children's feet.
This is Occ Health and Safety gone mad!
And while we're at it, Rod Liddle hits the nail on the head with this piece in The Spectator.
In Santa’s grotto at a top London department store, Santa in his big white friendly beard sits on a bench — and there is a large ‘X’ marked on the bench a couple of feet away where the child is firmly directed to sit, allowing a wide corridor of clear and unsullied air between the child and the potential kiddie-fiddler from the North Pole, with his red cheeks, strange reindeer and unaccountable affection for children. Santa is not allowed to touch the child. The child is not allowed to touch Santa. Happy Christmas, war is over. This is where we are now.
This is where we are now. More here.
