Eton, the school that allegedly educates the elite of British society such as Eden, Macmillan, Gladstone, Prince William; has fallen under nanny’s influence.

Fearing that the “delicate blossoms”, who are placed in its charge, may injure themselves; the school has banned pupils from changing defective lightbulbs.

This absurd rule is somewhat ironic; given the fact that the headmaster of Eton, Tony Little, recently said at a conference:

“The biggest worry we face is that an erosion of trust over the years in the teaching profession, voiced by politicians and echoed by the public, has led to a desire to control and direct the affairs of schools…”

However, do not fret about the pupils not being able to study in the darkness; the dangerous task of lightbulb changing has been passed on to those deemed to be expendable, the boys’ maids!

I see that the typical political correct stupidity is alive and well there. Who knows how many future managers will now not being able to change a light bulb make construction decesions.

Sounds like someone was watching an old video of the movie King Ralph and got a little scared about mixing royalty and lights... [Linked Image]
