And Winston Churchill wept

A boy of five was left stranded in a tree at school because of a bizarre health and safety policy - which banned teachers from helping him down.

The boy was only rescued after 45 minutes in the tree when passer-by Kim Barrett, 38, noticed the child and helped him down herself.

Well... thank goodness for that. I guess this woman was the hero of the day.

Well... not exactly.
Instead of being thanked for her actions by the head teacher of the Manor School in Melksham, Wiltshire, she was reported to the police for trespassing.
The New & Improved Britain... get out while you still can.

Holy Mackeral.

At least you STILL have a BUST of Winston over there. Unless the cleaning lady tossed it in the trash with the cig ashes.

At least I THINK you do.

Obama gave it back, ya know. Not appropriate for New White House.

Let not the hearts of the Queen's Dominion be troubled.

We're close on your heels with this goo-goo stuff.

Take care.

My bad. Crap. You're Canadian.

I do like SOME Canadians. Great people.

Please don't be offended by mind went south and I confuses the post with the nation at hand falling into the pit of history.

tolbert, it's true... there's plenty of stuff here to worry about... witness the ann coulter stuff the other night in ottawa.

hopefully, at some point, we get a stephen harper majority and the train can be put back on the track.

Or just, Elfishly Elephantine, James.

As to Coulter and Derringers and the liberal dude who's no longer with us at the moment. (Though his response clocked in to my email):

Don't say that kind of thing too much. It might turn me on. Derringers in a garter belt, oh my.

Last time I was out West in some hole-in-the wall saloon on the edge of town, I called to room service and asked for blonde, a bottle, and a gun.

So, be careful, liberals.

"wakefield says... the liberal dude who's no longer with us"

ah, wakefield... that'd be "liberal supporter"... who has recently been banned for making threats against my family.

maybe he should just move to what's left of britain... plenty of battles to fight over there.
