Apparently DIY shows are causing men to have DIY accidents.
So perhaps those TV ads showing blokes falling off ladders are making blokes.....fall off ladders. Afterall, this is the leading cause of DIY accidents.
Whatever, here comes the government galloping to our rescue.
".....this could soon be a thing of the past. New government rules are set to limit the size of projects handymen can tackle. At present, anyone can renovate as long as building inspectors check the work. By 2011, only licensed builders will be able to carry out the work."
Failing that the government will consider passing legislation to ban further production of DIY programmes....
