A laugh-out-loud collection of ludicrous laws, money-wasting council schemes, and ridiculous red tape Have you heard of the country whose schools have banned the use of egg boxes and toilet paper rolls in craft lessons as they pose a health risk (they could be carrying salmonella, don’t you know), and removed pear trees from a picturesque lane because they were too dangerous? No? It’s Britain! Learn how police community support officers giving talks on cycle safety were banned from cycling to schools to give them until they had passed a test and exam; and, after falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated £248,000, including a substantial amount "for lost earnings." If you find yourself grimacing at the stupidity of health and safety gone mad, you’ll love this collection of idiotic interventions and ridiculous rules that have come into play to keep us from harm.
