Human Rights Nonsense (10): Protecting Children by Banning Parents From Play Areas

human rights nonsense / law

It seems some people take the rights of children a bit too seriously. From Henry Porter’s Blog:

[The city of] Watford [in the U.K.] has just banned parents from watching their own children at two council play areas. … “Sadly, in today’s climate, you can’t have adults walking around unchecked in a children’s playground.” Instead of parents being able to watch and play with their own and other people’s children at the Harwoods and Harebreaks recreation grounds, vetted council staff known as “play rangers” will be in charge. … The council spokeswoman was keen to point out that the policy meant that if no parents were allowed into the two play areas it reduced the risk of adults wandering into the playground. … It seems possible that the mayor and her appalling council may be in breach of article 8 of the [U.K.] Human Rights Act – the right to family life.

More on children, pedophiles and playgrounds. More human rights nonsense.
