Take a good look at the above picture because it contravenes the Geneva Convention!
“Oh, no it doesn’t…” I hear you cry. Well, sorry but I’m afraid that it does!
Take a good look at Nurse Poltis – that’s the one on the left in case you can’t work it out for yourself. The Red Cross emblems on her uniform were changed to green crosses after the British Red Cross informed the theatre it was breaking the law and could face prosecution.
Unauthorised use of the emblem violates the Geneva Conventions Act 1957.
The British Red Cross said it had contacted the Pavilion Theatre over the use of a red cross on the nurse’s costume in the pantomime.
All I can say is that it’s a shame they’ve got fuck all better to do…
