Eric the Viking Folklore: Britannia Coco-nut Morris (56* d) RE: Folklore: Britannia Coco-nut Morris 19 Nov 13

Safety is a funny term and in this case it seems protecting us against ourselves. We walk on the pavement and cross the road all the time. Many of us ride, bikes, horses, motorcycles and drive cars, buses, lorries. We even skateboard and roller skate. Sometimes we even put roller skates under the Eagle annual roll downhill at great speed. We even teach children how to cross roads and have bicycle riding courses at school. This "Safety" aspect is a total thread of misinformation. Using H&S has become the hammer to hit so many nails on the head of our freedom. Regarding safety, they haven't banned marching parades when troops return home. They didn't ban Scouts and Guides etc from parading last Sunday and plenty of people stood on the pavement and road to watch and pay their respects. There are many times the public stand on the road. Look at the Olympic flame that made it's way around Britain last year, absolute chaos in some places.

This in my mind, is a flimsy excuse to remove another aspect of ever decreasing national identity.
