This can’t be real, can it? Parents banned from watching their children in playgrounds … in case they are paedophiles

October 28, 2009

Parents are being banned from playing with their children in council recreation areas because they have not been vetted by police.

Mothers and fathers are being forced to watch their children from outside perimeter fences because of fears they could be paedophiles.

Watford Council was branded a ‘disgrace’ yesterday after excluding parents from two fenced-off adventure playgrounds unless they first undergo criminal record checks.


Parents already have to ‘register’ their child on arrival so staff have their contact details in the event of an accident. But now only those who have been selected for CRB vetting by the council can enter the sites.

Mayor Dorothy Thornhill argued the council was merely enforcing government policy at the play areas.

‘Sadly, in today’s climate you can’t have adults walking around unchecked in a children’s playground and the adventure playground is not a meeting place for adults,’ she said.


That’s just unbelievable. Does the government have to run checks before they are allowed to change diapers too? They might be scat fetishists you know.

    The UK gets ever more ridiculous daily.

    Not a place for adults to meet? Ask any divorced dad that actually gets his kids for the weekend how much taking them to the playground improves his “social” life.
    If nothing else, divorcees can spend hours watching their kids play while bitching about their ex’s.
    Why would any parent turn their children over to someone selected by a closet pedophile?
    Yes, I believe that these people that see pedophiles everywhere are themselves barely controlling(or hiding very well) their own urges.

    Remember, this is the empire which degenerated into The Ministry of Silly Walks. And, they can’t even let Sikhs who are P.C.s wear turbans on patrol yet end over backwards to tolerate mindless blither from slaves to the ‘religion of peace.’ Feh.
