Story I read in yesterday's metro newspaper:
If you are alone and not accompanied by at least one child in a particular park in England [adults not to be trusted without child supervision :) ], you WILL be approached and questioned as to your intentions in the park. This is to reduce paedophile activity, apparently.
Actually, I do have a comment, I do, I am pulling a muscle here, jumping up and down, to make a comment!
This nanny state business is getting out of hand. I often go to the local park, ALONE, (this may make me a loser but not a paedophile) or with G, and we do not have kids. I always thought we had the right to do so, but apparently not. Are parks for the use of kids only? Am I going to have to squeeze one out merely to have the right to use a park? What about infertile people?
This country has been very kind to me during my stay. But it is insane sometimes.
