Bureaucracy 'gone mad'!

Craven District Council (good name for a bureaucrat's district!) has just perfected organised lunacy to a tee! Organisers of a village Christmas party have been told they must carry out a risk assessment of their mince pies - or their festivities will be cancelled. Council bosses say posters will have to be displayed at the party in Embsay, in the Yorkshire Dales, warning villagers the pies contain nuts and suet pastry. What a load of rubbish!

Are we to suspect EVERYBODIES' mince pies this Christmas? I would suggest for starters that anyone attending the Leader of Craven District Council's Christmas party (I hope it's not cancelled!) should peel off the top of each mince pie offered and put them under an ultra violet scanner to check for rogue elements.

Can't be too careful, can we?
