A lot of Brits comment on how the UK has become a "Nanny State" the UK bends over backwards not to offend everyone, but in doing so dilutes many of its own traditions. I was very surprised when I visited a blog yesterday to see this message on a bus in England.
I have recently been reading that there is a campaign for The right to dry, in other words hang your washing out in your own garden. Blimey if it was warm enough I would love to hang out my washing today, but its just too cold.
This morning I have just read about people being asked to leave shopping malls in America because they took photographs of their family eating a meal, I didn't realise that you couldn't do that. So dont take photographs in enclosed shopping centres or the bouncers will get you!
It makes me realise that I don't want that kind of lifestyle and so I will stick to being a person who enjoys wandering around trees, rocks,and looking up at blue skies...I wish errmm what blue skies........and not much traffic.
PS there is a bus stop here, but I still haven't seen the bus, milk lorries, white vans, huge tractors, but where is that bus?
I see only tractors around herePPS......Dont get me wrong France has a billion rules about things that you can and cannot do!
The French word for forbidden is interdit
The French word for clothes washing is lessivage.
