Ahh the UK,it never lets us down…in a sense anyway.
A group of pensioners have been banned from holding a coffee morning at a public library for health and safety reasons – in case they spill hot drinks on children.
The seven members of the Over 50s coffee morning have been meeting every Tuesday for the past four years without incident at the Eye Library in Eye, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.
But council officials have now axed the meetings claiming that toddlers from a nearby nursery who use the library at the same time could be injured if hot coffee spilt on them.
I can add nothing to this, you already know the drill.
