And this makes Britain a better place how exactly?

From The Telegraph.

Carol-singing Brownies and Guides have been banned from a shopping centre because they are considered a health and safety risk.

The girls, who range from children aged five to teenagers, have sung for pensioners and disabled people at a late night Christmas shopping event at the Marlowes centre in Hemel Hempstead, Herts for more than 20 years.

And in all that time how many people have been killed or injured by their carol singing antics?

Marketing manager Eileen Gannon said: "With changes made to the centre's Christmas decorations and trade units there simply isn't space for a huge number of performers. We're disappointed, but our priority has to be the safety of people inside the centre."

Another centre worker said: "There were a lot of Brownies last year and they caused absolute chaos."

Yeah, those Brownies are little devils aren't they? Let's see, what other groups are renowned for causing chaos in public areas?

Lol! Great minds think alike (or read the 'Telegraph'). I've scheduled a post on this story too.

Must be the time of year!

"...our priority has to be the safety of people inside the centre."

Yeah. Sure it is...

The bleating liberal shits who were so concerned about poor hoodies being barred from Bluewater are no doubt limbering up to complain about this...not.
