    Its absolute madness.... my little girl who is 4 fell over at school - we had a phone call which first off make you think 'this could be really bad'... so my wife has to drop what she is doing and go to the school, when she gets there she is asked to clean the scrape (and I mean its next to nothing, not even any blood) and then she has to put a plaster on it - ALL BECAUSE THE TEACHERS ARENT ALLOWED TO PUT A PLASTER ON!

    Back in the day we used to get the cane and that didnt do me any harm! Kids think they can get away with anything these days, heaven help society in 10 or 20 years time when this current lot at school are running things!

      How about this for a good un.
      I have been attending my lads Jr football every Sunday for the last 5 years. I know all the lads and other parents and we take it in turns to run the line.
      Last Sunday i took the flag only to be informed that i could not do it because i had not been CRB checked by the club.
