Jack Ormisher burst into tears after he opened his packed lunch only for workers to take the sandwich away from him and offer him their own fruit and vegetables.Now, what sort of person do they have in these places?
What kind of brain-dead, cowed, subservient minimum-wage busybody thinks that it's their job to dictate to the children in their care (and naturally, this is one of those oh-so-wonderful Sure Start places that Labour are so keen to trumpet as their crowning success) what they should eat?
And thinks that it's quite within their rights to snatch food away from a two year old?
His crime? Eating a verboten item. It wasn't on The List, you see:
The rebuke came after the nursery drew up a list of 'healthy eating options' for youngsters which include fruit, vegetables, rice, pasta and potatoes.But after little Jack had partaken of this repast (no doubt sourced from the cheapest possible tender to the government contract) a few times, he got tummy upsets. So his mother packed a lunch for him herself.
And when she queried their actions, she was given a rather different excuse to 'It's not on The List''...
'The excuse they have me was that other parents had complained that he had a sandwich when their children were just eating fruit.'Ah. Perfect!
NuLab's drones have internalised the message that their lords and masters have been drip, drip, dripping into all their messages. It's wrong that little Jack had something different to all the other kids. It would be wrong for the staff to explain to the other parents that everyone makes different choices about what to put in their child's lunchbox.
Everyone must be the same...
A spokesman for Wigan Council said: 'The centre has a list of recommended healthy food, according to national guidelines, which children are encouraged to eat. A cheese sandwich would not feature on the list.'But little Jack wasn't encouraged to eat a piece of fruit (like the ones that had made him ill), was he? No-one said 'Oooh, Jack, do you really want that sandwich? Here's a nice orange - would you rather have that?'
No, like any good little Stazi in training, they simply whipped the sandwich away and stuck the NHS-approved friut in his hands. No argument, no choice. Do as we say. Or else.
Well, little Jack learned a valuable lesson today, if he can remember it. And hopefully, so did some parants, those that are paying attention. As Leg-Iron points out:
"And I mean, really, are you honestly happy leaving your child in the care of someone who will steal a two-year-old's lunch and then attempt to justify it?So, parents. What do you care about..?
They do not care at all about your children. They do not care at all about the harm they do.
They care only about control. At any cost."
