building a nanny state, one kiddie at a time. one classroom at a time.

The training for a nanny state starts very young.
One day, many of the 10 year olds mentioned in the article, will I guess be members of parliament. One may even become a prime minister.

No doubt a number of civil right lawyers among them too.

You’ve gotta be taught ( with nod to line from a song in South Pacific )

btw .... the term ‘to be told off’ has a slightly different meaning over here.  Or it’s used in a slightly different way. For example, being told they have the wrong lunch is being ‘told off’. 

Crisps are what Americans refer to as potato chips.


The packed lunch police aged just 10:

They check for unhealthy food in younger pupils’ meals - but parents are not happy

Hall Road Primary Academy in Hull has told Year 6 to check pupils’ dinners
10 and 11-year-olds inspect children’s lunchboxes for crisps and chocolate
Furious parents have launched a petition against the lunch police scheme
Some children are not eating because they are afraid of being told off

By Daily Mail Reporter

A primary school has appointed 10-year-olds as ‘packed lunch police’ with the power to inspect the food younger pupils bring to school – and even issue warnings if it is unhealthy.

Parents have started a petition against the scheme after receiving a letter telling them to pack only healthy items.

Brooke Johnson, 34, whose children Charlee, seven, and Riley, five, are pupils, said: ‘It’s crackers. I decide what my children eat for lunch, not a 10 or 11-year-old.’

The letter from Hall Road Primary Academy in Hull states: ‘Year 6 will be packed lunch police and will be checking what children have in their lunches, with warning slips given if lunches do not meet our standards and awards for those that do.

‘Your packed lunch may include bread, pasta, crackers, rice, wraps, meat, cheese, fish, small yoghurt, fruit and vegetables. In order to be a healthy school, your packed lunch may not include crisps, chocolate spread, fizzy drink/energy drinks or food that needs heating up, eg micro chips.’

All pupils in the first three years of primary education have been provided with free school meals from this month – partly to stop parents giving children unhealthy food. But parents can still send their children with a packed lunch if they wish.

Miss Johnson, who started the petition, added: ‘My little girl came home from school starving because she hadn’t dared open her lunchbox.

‘She knew I had packed her sandwiches, crisps, a sausage roll, a small chocolate bar and apple juice.

‘I don’t see why she should risk being given one of these warning slips by another child just for eating her packed lunch. It’s ridiculous.

‘If these kids are inspecting my children’s sandwich fillings, how can I be sure they are washing their hands after going to the toilet and aren’t picking their noses? One six-year-old boy was given a warning slip just for having a Kellogg’s cereal bar.’

But the icing on the cake is this quote from the headmistress. Which I think is a gross exaggeration if it isn’t a downright lie.

Headmistress Caroline Holliday said: ‘This healthy-eating campaign has been driven and implemented by our children themselves.’

Yeah. Sure it is. Cos as we all know well, kids that age aren’t interested in playtime. They want to study politically approved correct diets.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
