Yellow Peril

Proof, if it were needed of how public servants are in a world of there own can be found in the the story of a well meaning lady in Kent.
A press officer was forced to issue a grovelling statement to the Press Association when Kent Council was forced to apologise for banning a woman from taking daffodils into her local council offices because they were not politically correct during the election.
Valerie Jewess was stunned when told that the bright yellow flowers had to go as they were the same colour associated with Liberal Democrats. She had offered the daffodils as a gift to staff at a council archive centre in Kent. The spokesman said the rules had been taken too ''literally''.
Perhaps I should take a red rose to the Sedgfield Council offices as a symbolic gesture ! Ed.
