Is common sense making a comeback?

It's heartening to find it's not just me who thinks life in the UK is like one of Spike Milligan's sketches.

Even the police think their activities are now ridiculous. Perhaps now there'll be a change? Perhaps. In the meantime, careful with those groceries. If you have eggs in there, you might be charged with 'intent to throw'. And if your children are out playing with their toy guns, be sure they have enough cash on them for bail.

On another note, I've been nominated by Southern Writer for something. I have to nominate five others. It'll take a little thinking time.

I do agree with SW, BTW, that even your name sounds eerie. Perfect for a ghosthunter.

Is it real or a pseudonym?

Eventually someone will bring public nuisance charges against the police. A warning for a water fight? Yikes!
With all me childhood antics, iffin the Monter grew up in your neck of the wood me would have a rap sheet ten kilometers long.

STOMP!

What a crazy world you live in. I think I may never visit there!

Tom - I'm Romulus Crowe, what can I say? By the way, nobody is safe from political correctness. Hong Kong wants to ban the Bible because of its sexual and violent content.

Is nothing sacred any more? ;)

Scary - the worry is not that every child will have a police record, but that it will come to mean nothing. It'll be very hard to sort out the criminals then!

SW - still working on those nominations! I visit few blogs, and comment on fewer, but I think I might be able to come up with five. Is it bad form to pass back the nomination?

The craziness never ends here. It's the country of Spike Milligan and Monty Python. I think they're in charge now.
