Out into the sunlight and the pure wind

The BBC has discovered something else for parents to feel guilty about. A poll conducted on behalf of the College of Optometrists has revealed that nearly a third of parents in Britain do not buy their children sunglasses.

Dr Susan Blakeney, optometric adviser at the College, says she is "shocked to see that so many parents aren't ensuring that their child's eyes are protected in the sun".

It is a wonder that earlier generations of children survived to adulthood at all.

What with global warming and all those paedophiles about, I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that the best thing is to keep your children locked in the cellar.
