Nannies put in their place by Lady Wilson

WITH nothing better to do now that her husband, Lord Wilson, late of Upper Albert Road, is dutifully employed running the Scottish Hydro-Electric company, Lady Wilson has been busying herself around the nursery school in London's Chelsea which she has owned since the 1970s.

But all, it appears, is not well between proprietor and parents.

According to a report in a British newspaper, Lady Wilson's heavy-handed approach is causing distress among the mothers and nannies who have been directed not to do their socialising (i.e. gossiping) in the school after they have dropped off the tiny tots.

Furthermore, the nannies have been instructed to reduce the amount of time they spend with their charges before leaving them to their lessons.

Perhaps the years in Hongkong flitting in a chauffeured Daimler between the colonial pile in Central and the white-washed lodge in Fanling have dented the Lady's senses.

Someone should remind her before it is too late that hell hath no fury like a pack of London nannies scorned.
