Oh dear what a funny old country we live in, I didn't think that I would be writing this headline I must admit.
It seems that Nanny has taken her love of her furry little friends one step further.
Frank Cook, a farmer of 77 years of age, saw a dog worrying his lambs and decided to scare it off by firing his shotgun (note he did not aim the gun at the dog).
Needless to say Nanny was not best pleased, and sent six (yes six!) police cars to arrest him.
Mr Cook was in fact well within his rights to kill the dog. However, he simply fired from behind it, and then apologised to his neighbour who owned said mutt. Mr Cook even promised to pay any vet bill for the misunderstanding.
Needless to say, the neighbour having been well indoctrinated by Nanny, decided to create a fuss and called the police.
Six of Nanny's finest police vehicles arrived containing a dozen armed officers, some of who then drew their weapons.
Mr Cook was then arrested, put into handcuffs, placed in the backseat of a squad car and frogmarched (or would it be frogdriven?) to jail where he was photographed, and had his DNA and fingerprints taken.
Needless to say Mr Cook was eventually released released without charge.
Mr Cook was a tad pissed off at his treatment and said:
"I am a law-abiding citizen and did not deserve this treatment.
I couldn't believe all this had happened on a nice spring day.
I was standing out on the lawn with my grandchildren, when this armed flotilla of police cars arrived.
Our jaws just dropped.
To my utter astonishment, no fewer than six police cars drove up.
Armed policemen stepped out of the front and stood with their guns at the ready.
Then three men came across the lawn.
I was approached by one of them and asked whether I was Frank Cook.
On assuring them I was, I was then cautioned and arrested.
I protested and told them not be silly and to send the armed men back into their cars and then I would talk to them.
They would not listen.
Instead, one officer put an arm lock on me, frogmarched me to a car and pushed me in.
They told me they were arresting me for criminal damage."
Mid Bedfordshire Tory MP Nadine Dorries, who has taken up Mr Cook's case, said:
"This is a case of using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
I cannot believe that something like this can happen in England."
Given the slack jaw morons running this country, I can well believe that it has happened.
