Provided that Health and Safety don't consider them to be deadly weapons.

The children or the pins?

Deputy Ferguson,

The pins can be designed for "child friendly" purposes.

I;ve never had any trouble with my lapel badges when I've been on a plane. Unlike a knive, you might give someone a nasty scratch, but the sharp bit is only around 3-4 mm long.

Yet to see a health and safety official check that a minefield or battlefield is suitable for government employees to work.

The States could buy the uniforms in bulk for each school and sale them at cost. I have 3 grandchildren and if it was not for all the family  helping out they would never survive. What with rent prices,food well you all know the rest. One other thing that gets my back is all the money that the schools ask for- dress down day,pizza day, and the rest. That should never be, what about the parents who really cannot afford it,they do not want to say they can't for saving face. I went to school and it cost NOTHING! Since PPT have come in the States take the view that the parents will buy what the school needs. They will raise the money and we can then spend our money on trips away maybe.
