You Can't Have a Plaster, But Here's a Condom
A child at Uphill Primary School in Somerset caught her finger in her coat zip this week. She went to a teacher for help and a sticking plaster. Instead of putting a plaster on her finger, the teacher called the girl's mother and told her to come to school to apply the plaster herself because teachers were banned from using them in case the child might be allergic to latex. Allergic to latex. Hmmm. It doesn't stop condoms being doled out to under 16s though, does it?! The world's gone mad.
