I Don’t Care If It Survived The Blitz

Hang on aren't they already painted?

Hang on, aren’t they already painted?

Oh for the love of wood paneling. A famous pub in Plymouth, built from the wrecks of Spanish Armada ships defeated by Sir Francis Drake, has been to ordered to cover the 16th century wooden beams with flame retardant paint. Knock, knock it’s health and safety. Hmm, how amazing after 500 years they are now suddenly a fire risk? Seriously, no  flame retardant paint in the world is going to stop a building full of alcohol from burning up faster than the  Hindenburg.

So Who’s The Bully Now?

A Texas teacher is  in big doodah after she ordered a group of school kids to line up and take turns in whacking an alleged school bully. It’s is believed up to 24 kids were told by the teacher to hit 6 year old Aiden and later to “hit him harder” in order to teach him a lesson. Another teacher who had suggested the idea is also in trouble. Oh well, another one who won’t like Mondays!!!

Want sauce with that?

Just Don’t Mention Mother’s Day

OK, here’s the thing US lady who adopted a Russian boy and then sent him back on a one way flight with a note pinned to him saying he was “disturbed and violent”, you are still responsible for him and must pay $150,000 plus $1,000 a month in child support until he’s 18. So says a Tennessee judge. Sheez, kids!

Psst Hmm, the kid is only 9, so  he’s going to be one cashed up  “disturbed and violent” teen by the time he’s ready to leave the orphanage.

This Can’t End Well

Doctors in Britain have been ordered to ration the number of patients they send for cancer scans so they can save money. Hmm, not reassuring considering Britain has the lowest cancer survival rate in Europe thanks to late diagnosis. Calling George Orwell, George Orwell to reception!
