The EU edict, European Standard BS EN 11 76, states the height of children’s swings must be no more than three metres (9ft 10ins).

What does BS EN stand for? Bull S*** European Number?

It really sad when a continent, even wosre when it is one that is run by a single governing board, is worrying over the height of children's swingsets. Certainly there are more important things to worry about.

You don't get it do you. It's "For the Children"... (And to keep the government employees employeed).

Now that they have the regulations, think of all the people that can be employeed. I.E. The ones to inspect the playgrounds. The managers to manage these people. The ones to fill out the required paperwork. The ones to produce and distribute the paperwork. The ones to verify the paperwork. The ones to prosocute offenders (more paperwork and management etc). Just think of all the jobs created to consume tax dollars. It is for THEIR children, so that the sons and daughters of the government workers will not go without food, shelter and recreation (except of course the playgrounds).
