A Wakefield mother’s intense questioning about whether her son wanted some more sprouts breached the European convention on human rights a courts has confirmed.
The son, Dave Jenkins, who was visiting from nearby Huddersfield, was exposed to hours of questioning which all essentially boiled down to “Are you sure you don’t want some more sprouts?”
“I think she was trying to trick me into liking sprouts.”, said a stony faced Mr Jenkins. “Apparently, when I was 4 years old, I’d eaten a couple and as a result she cooked 28lb of the little green bastards for a recent meal.”
“I’d also pointed out that I’d eaten a few to go with the one, yes one, roast potato I was given during the meal.”
