Kim du Toit points out:
that Britain is about to ban brooms. No, really:
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.
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.
How is Cherie Blair going to get around if brooms are banned?
As Oscar said I wish I had said that...
