Have you heard of the country whose schools have banned the use of egg boxes and loo 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! This laugh-out-loud collection of ludicrous laws, money-wasting council schemes and ridiculous red tape reveals how: * A city council removed the conkers from dozens of horse chestnut trees, fearing for the safety of tree climbers searching for the ultimate sixer. * After falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated GBP248,000, including a substantial amount `for lost earnings'. WARNING: This book should only be used by those trained in lifting books and turning pages.
May induce laughter - read with caution and at your own risk.
