Do people even know what Nanny State means?!

It seems to get used with every article associated with the UK nowadays.

Well what can you expect when the submitter is reading the Daily Mail?

leperboy69: Well what can you expect when the submitter is reading the Daily Mail?

Well, to be fair, they have lots of Farkophile trollish headlines at the Mail.

Makes you wonder though...

Why the FARK would they even have a 2-years-old's name and address in a system used by their Department of Motor Vehicles (or whatever they have over there)?
 
2007-11-09 12:43:09 PM
Dude, she's 2.

Despite mum Sharna's protests, dozy police insisted someone would have to cough up or they faced a court appearance.

So, they don't really care who appears in court, but someone will have to be there.

Trouble making little yob. Sure she's cute, but let her off this time and she'll feel entitled. What's next smoking pot? Exposing to much of herself in public?

Take a step back. Take a deep breath.

Now try again...

Get it yet? No? One more time... step back... deep breath... We all believe in you...

/Hint: define each of the words in the headline and then see how one of the definitions can be used with dual meanings to have humorous effect

Why did the woman have to prove that she was somewhere else and that the car registrations didn't match? Isn't "SHE'S TWO YEARS OLD" enough proof that she wasn't driving a goddamn car?
 
2007-11-09 12:46:16 PM
Did that headline make any kind of sense to anyone?

I know there's a writer's strike going on, but come on.

Ayesha was allegedly flashed by a speed camera in on the A638 near York Road, Doncaster.

I too flashed a child near York Road.

Wow. What a non story. Well done submitter, you got another greenlight on Fark by adding 'Nanny State'. What's the prize for greenlights again? Oh, that's right. Nothing.
Zzzzz.
Fark is actually getting worse than reading the Daily Mail or The Currant Bun. Not only are the crappiest, nastiest small minded curtain twitching stories in those rags constantly greenlit, you get all the mouth breathers and their dipshiat comments to boot.

The Greatest American Frampton: Why the FARK would they even have a 2-years-old's name and address in a system used by their Department of Motor Vehicles (or whatever they have over there)?

They probably had mommy's address and car, and somehow got the kid's name. Or someone fraudulently registered a car in the kid's name and address. Mistakes like this happen, one time a tractor in the countryside got sent a fine for not paying the toll to go into Central London. Turned out some asshat had put the tractor's license plate on his car. Shiat happens, the cops figured out their mistake and apologized. It's a Fark-worthy story, but it's hardly evidence of a Nanny State.

I'm *certain* that there is a brilliant piece of ironic satire in here, but I just can't quite find it.

Hah, funnier than the story itself are the panties-in-a-knot limeys who are crying about the headline.

Come on guys, cowboy up and stop being so sensitive. If a bit of 'innaccurate headline' greenlighting gets you so worked up, you'd never cut it as Americans, much less Republicans.
 
2007-11-09 12:52:09 PM
Nanny State, Terrorist, 9/11, and Wazzup have all been overused and diluted from their very important meanings.
 
2007-11-09 12:52:40 PM
Overuse of "Nanny State" is the new cliche.

Subby should go to court for that wreck of a headline.

Farking hurt my head to read that thing.

If the shoe fits, wear it. The UK has gone to sheeite in the last 24 mos, and that's a fact.

fatbear: Who the fark pierces a two-year-old's ears?

Both my daughters got their ears pierced before they were 1 year od. Neither cried, and neither remember. I've seen parents hold down their toddler's while they were screaming in terror and crying their eyes out in pain. That seems a little more cruel to me than doing it before they'll even remember.

Cute toddler Ayesha Khan was apparently clocked driving 65mph in a 40mph zone by South Yorkshire Police.

Understandable once you meet the cop who sent the citation:

/sorry.

If it was my kid I'd have brought her to court just to see what they would do.
 
2007-11-09 02:00:52 PM
Chief Inspector Ian Blint, head of roads' policing, said: "There has been an ambiguity in the information supplied to us that caused the notice of intended prosecution to be issued to Ayesha Khan.

Supplied to you by whom?

This is beyond our control and we apologise for any inconvenience and distress caused by the Khan family.

Sounds like classic finger-pointing only in this case, the finger is pointing at anything-but-us.
 
2007-11-09 02:05:01 PM

1) Somebody at the DVLA couldn't read Mrs. Khan's handwriting
2) Somebody in the Khan household wrongly included Ayesha on the electoral roll
3) ???
4) Profit (or NIP, in this instance)

Chavs and Pikeys.

gwowen: Oh my God! An easily rectified clerical error! EVERYBODY PANIC!

I don't know how things are run in England, but in Nevada there's no such thing as an easily rectified Clerical Error when it comes to the police. A buddy of mine was arrested and extradited utah because his name was $some A $farker and a $some T $farker had a warrant out on him.

//they didn't even give my buddy a ride home after they released him.

I'd take a day off work just to bring the little ankle-biter down to the court - it'd be fun.

Wait, they caused the distress and inconvenience? Wasn't it the police that caused the distress, etc? WTF?

Bonus points if you could get her to start calling everyone a poopie-head.
