I fear it may have to do more with the fact that lots of people don’t have jobs at the moment.

Anyway, the most recent consequence of overbearing health and safety is now, apparently, that Asda have put a warning on their milk bottles that says ‘warning – contains milk’.

Oh my giddy aunt. Where will this end?

As it happens I have also become aware recently that soon all newspapers will have to display prominently on their front page ‘warning – contains news’. Apparently the Sun has decided not to display the message for fear of breaking the trade description act.

Maybe soon we’ll have to put a notice on the door of church saying ‘warning – contains God’.
