A dinner lady was warned she could be accused of 'grooming' a primary school pupil after she gave him a biscuit.



She said that the next day, the Key Stage 1 manager, who was acting principal, came to the kitchen and told her that under the Child Protection Act she could be seen to be grooming a child.



Who are these people in charge, why are they in the positions they hold, infact, why are they allowed to exist.



And they want us to take them seriously !!!!!

Last year a child threw a stick into a conker tree to release the conkers, it fell down onto her head and fractured her skull, this year the council have sent their workmen out to remove all the conkers from the trees in the area.

Another council has pinned posters to the conker trees saying "beware of falling conkers". Don't know about conkers they are bonkers.

To add insult to injury, the child and dinner lady involved are actually related to each other!



True about the conkers - I live in Bury St Edmunds where the 'warning' signs have been posted.



The world's (or at least, parts of it) gone mad.

what makes me laugh, nowadays you buy a bag of peanuts and it has a warning on the label that it might contain nuts.

Woodspeckie- do you know what ALL the quangos do? (BTW they haven't been called quangos for some years now - they're NGO's- Non Governmental Organisations)..... some are immensely useful.... QCA is an example... the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority... also OFSTED, who monitor education standards. Both are aimed at improving the education of ALL our children and both succeed. Have you a better idea?

What's it got to do with you how UK schools are run, Marcos? If you want to make them better first live in the UK (if you don't) and become a school governor or a volunteer helper or work in one to improve the educational experience for pupils .....rather than take the Daily Mail knee-jerk response to every education story.

PS On a related 'PC gone mad' theme, nobody ever did say 'Personchester', it's an urban myth kept alive by readers of above 'journal'.

Well I do read the Guardian from time-to-time, Mike (hence my occasional typos!) ...I thought-

'What's the point in learning to read long words and then buying a comic?'

Message 15 of 21 in Discussion

Branwell, I have spent many years paying far too much tax to educate our youth and was on the PTA of my sons school just before I moved here ( and what a waste of time that was !!!!!) One of the reasons for moving here was because I was fed up with the 'democratic system' we are suppose to live in, I now have total cointempt for everything I was brought up to respect, 'our democratic system'



I am very lucky because my son has excelled in his village college and is now an expert in computers ( at the age of 15 and earned in excess of $20,000 in the last year on the internet) and will do his A levels and will not need to go to university for some stupid nonsensical degree with a new made up name ...somefinkoligy



As a retired bloke I trust your pension is all safe so you can have a financially secure last few years, unlike a lot of us who have been shafted by the past 15 years of British government



So really it all a load of Bollox, actually old chap, the whole point of my post

Quarmby, it was only 10 years ago when I enhanced my business situation with Cambridge city council with what can be only described as a BRIBE, with two different departments for two different situations, the situation was percieved and accepted in a 'different light' but was to all intents and purposes, a Bribe.



I havnt actually been put in that situation here, & any 'deals' i have done have been above board and I have paid the taxes asked for by the tax office and as a consequence have a good working relationship with them. (all considerably lower than I would have had to pay in th UK)



I am perhaps one of the lucky ones, I know many who have done ok here, albeit mainly Cypriots and some of the ones who I know who have been shafted have made fundamental errors of Judgement, not negociated a good deal and handed over money 'cash' to people who I would even drink at the same bar with.



I know of one guy who handed over 250,000 to a 'Bloke' who then dissappeared of to Turkey, G

Marcos, wouldn't that be 'bollocks' rather than 'bollox' ...unless you're a Guardian reader, too, of course.
