Broomstick

Kim du Toit points out:

that Britain is about to ban brooms. No, really:

Carpenters and woodworkers have been told not to use brooms to sweep up sawdust because they are considered dangerous under “ridiculous” new health and safety guidelines.

I think we can all agree that this is ridiculous, and a fine example of Nanny Gummint run amok. But that’s not the real point.

How is Cherie Blair going to get around if brooms are banned?

As Oscar said I wish I had said that...

Change into a bat presumably...

My chippie Dad lived to 82 without Asthma. He was finally seen off by the NHS with pneumonia resulting from chronic neglect after a stroke. However, because he had been a smoker, he went down as a smoking related death, not the fact that he wasn't seen by a doctor for 12 hours even though he was in hospital and had a fever.
