Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the following article ref the Health and Safety Executive banning traditional british games for school children in the UK, ie Conkers, British Bulldog and Leapfrog. My question to my MP is, has the HSE gone mad?

It is OK to install a wind turbine in a school’s playground but not OK for the kids to play tried and tested playground games.

I appreciate you are currently awaiting a response from the HSE ref the two collapsed WTs in the South West last year, but I would ask my MP to bring this matter to the appropriate Minister for the HSE.

Tell me Mr Bradshaw, would you allow your children to attend a school, which had a WT in the Playground?

I suppose they could tie the naughty kids to the blades and let them spin for a couple of hours? Personally, I would like to tie the HSE CEO and leave her there for a couple of days.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
