You will recall my recent article about Nanny's police force using their scarce resources to spy on people in pubs, and fine the bar staff for serving "drunk" people?
Well, she's up to her old tricks again.
It recently emerged that 12 of Nanny's finest visited The Prince of Wales pub in Moseley Birmingham, and carried out sobriety tests on the punters there who were enjoying a quiet libation (can I say libation on this site?).
In a scene out of a Charlie Chaplin movie, drinkers were made to walk along a straight line chalked on to the pavement at the rear of the pub.
Nanny was not happy with the results, officers told bar staff that the customers were intoxicated and out of control.
Landlord Keith Marsden thinks that this was a load of old bollocks. He noted that it was a normal Friday evening, and branded the police "bully boys".
"I'm absolutely outraged. It's complete nonsense and if it wasn't so serious it would be a joke.
Why are police officers wasting taxpayer's money investigating whether or not people are drunk in a pub?
West Midlands Police said:
"West Midlands Police received a formal complaint in November which is being investigated by our Professional Standards Department.
It would therefore be inappropriate for us to comment further at this stage."
Clearly there is no other crime in the West Midlands!
