Aren't You Blaming The Wrong Tools, 'Daily Mail'?

Shouldn't you be blaming the idiot parents who leave them where children can get hold of them?

Or should we all have to put up with cooler hair straighteners..? You know, for the chiiiilllldreeeennnn!
Study leader Professor Alison Mary Kemp, of the Institute of Primary Care and Public Health, Cardiff University, said: ‘Prevention is likely to rely upon heightened awareness and behaviour changes by carers.
'While these appliances must be kept out of the reach of children, there is the potential to explore modification to product design to ensure toddler safety,’ she added.
The study concluded: ‘Public information messages, children’s centres, health visitor or family nurse practitioners should address safety education as a matter of routine.’

Fuck me!

I remember the old coal grate, that had a dimpled copper sheet on the fromt.

None of these sissy "Fire gueard shite things.

Only took me once to realise that touching the copper when the fire was blazing for glory was NOT really a good idea.

I STILL have the scar, and I remember that to this day, hay! Guess fucking what idiots?? A fire grate is HOT! SO FUCKING WHAT!?

I was dead proud of the plaster though! (60s first aid.... DON'T go there.)
