Nanny State

Got up early this morning, enjoying a full brekkie when wallop, I come across another example of the nanny state being a complete and utter twonk.

The British Standards Institute are proposing that those of us with trees in our gardens have them inspected every three years. They are worried about "branch shedding" and "whole tree failure" which kill six people a year in the UK. I've got two trees in my garden so must be in mortal danger every minute I'm in the Schloss Beaman, or out roaming the grounds!

What will the environmental lobby say when we all cut down our trees to avoid the snoopers?
