Poppy Sellers Banned

Poppy Sellers BannedYesterday was the 90th anniversary of the end of the "Great War". Nanny, true to form, decided to commemorate it in her own special way.

Nanny's chums in the police from the Littlemoor area of Weymouth banned two poppy sellers from selling poppies door to door.

Jan Hinton and Charlotte Warren-Sinclaire have, for the past seven years, raised hundreds of pounds for the Royal British Legion.

However, this year, police banned them from door to door selling on the grounds that they were "bogus callers".

They tried to convince Nanny's police that they were not bogus, by showing their official documents, but were still ordered to leave because a member of the public had complained.

I hope that the member of the public who complained feels proud of himself/herself, and that in the event that we face another war there are people willing to lose their lives to defend that person's right to complain to the police about a trivial matter such as someone selling poppies door to door.

The officers allegedly threatened to "pull the plug" to stop the Legion from selling poppies in the evening if the pair did not cooperate.

Mrs Hinton said:

"We are always polite and never force people into buying them. We have never experienced anything like this so were stunned. They have to respond to suspect callers so we showed them our ID badges, tins and poppy trays.

Their attitude was just unbelievable. They said we couldn't collect after dark and not to collect this week because it was Halloween.

They then said if we carried on, they would pull the plug on the RBL doing house-to-house collections.

I thought I was hearing it wrong. Who do they think they are claiming-they have the authority to make that decision?

They wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for my father and all the other people who fought in the war. They ought to be ashamed
."

Nanny has no shame, and programs her underlings to follow the letter of the law without employing any common sense or humanity.

Her father, Arthur Pitman, served in the Royal Medical Corps and was a prisoner in Burma.

A Dorset Police spokesman said:

"Many people, particularly the elderly, are worried about bogus callers.

We do not have any problem with legitimate collecting of this kind
."

The why ban it, if you don't have a problem with it?

Maybe the person who complained would like to explain himself/herself?

    These things happen, i belive, because of 3 reasons.

    1) The increased fear the population has of anyone they dont know, perpetuated by the media and our government.

    2)The police will always follow the path of least resistance these days, its easier to hassel a bunch of innocent old folks than move on a gang of fighting fit yobs hanging around the streets.

    3) we seem to be in a state where it is encouraged to "grass up" anyone to the authroities so they may stick in the jackboot.

    It's not like they were a couple of dodgy builders offering to tarmac the drive for 10 grand.

    Mind you our glorious leaders treat our living troops with nothing but contempt in this country, so what chance have the dead ones?

  2. It was said that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely; Since we have given more and more power to "officials" in general and the police in particular, so they have taken to abusing those powers as a matter of course.
    Most senior police officers are little more than politicians in uniform...Listern when they make statements or answer questions at police press conferences.
    The more junior ranks seem to be infiltrated by groups of uniformed skinhead thugs...The old recruitment procedures used to weed this type of person out, now they appear to be the prefered candidates....The junior police officers also seem to be little more than uniformed tax collectors....I yearn for the day when we will have a return to the traditional Bobby on the beat, such as Dixon of Dock Green....Will it ever happen?....I doubt it, we are stuck with the skinhead thugs dressed in paramilitary black uniforms....

    I was under the impression that World War 2 was fought to get rid of the S.S and the Gestapo, instead of which many police forces in this country seem to have adopted their mantles. As for the person who complained about these ladies, in my opinion he or she is a real tosser who isn't fit to wipe the arses of our brave troops.

    From my days in Weymouth I seem to remember Littlemoor as being one of the places where crime was somewhat high due to the high proportion of feckless, proto-chav scum that lived there (not everyone though and you did feel sorry for the poor sods who had to put up with it). Maybe this has fallen so much since I left that the local boys in blue (sorry, black body armour nowadays), bored and with nothing to do need something to justify their existence. However, I somehow think that this is probably not the case having recently been witness to three fights in Weymouth town centre whilst visiting and having heard the area being described as being on a friday night "like the f****** Wild West at times!" by a serving officer of my acquaintance.

    It could have been that the officers were in fact trying to discourage the sellers from being in the area at that time lest they became a crime statistic, mugged for their collecting tins or set alight by trick or treaters but again I somehow doubt it.

    As for the person who complained ? Probably someone who didn't like being roused from in front of their 42" plasma screen and asked to part with some cash that they could more usefully put towards a six pack of cheap cider from Lidl and 40 B&H.

    Finally though I would like to say that not all Dorset coppers have the attitude that was displayed, there are still a few out there trying to do a decent job under difficult circumstances. However, like everywhere, the new generations leave a lot to be desired in some cases and really do need a few old school sergeants to give them a boot up the a*se just like we got.

    The new police uniforms are despicable. Para-military, aggressive, sinister, nazi ski caps. The popular shaven heads just make them look like members of an SS Panzer Division. Watching re-runs of 'Heartbeat' with the old style uniforms being worn makes you realise how much has changed.

    I don't know what senior police officers were thinking of to approve these changes.

    But the police would rather persecute law abiding citizens, who will 'do as they are told' than tackle real criminals who might fight back.

    "could have been that the officers were in fact trying to discourage the sellers from being in the area at that time lest they became a crime statistic, mugged for their collecting tins or set alight by trick or treaters but again I somehow doubt it."

    So do I! Don't forget, Weymouth is the place where the authorities are so reasonable and considerate that a couple of years ago, when someone fell into the harbour, he was hauled in front of the magistrates and fined along with the person who jumped in in order to rescue!

    I couldn't agree with you more. Perhaps I'm being cynical, but maybe they got a cut of the profits?

    ''They tried to convince Nanny's police that they were not bogus, by showing their official documents, but were still ordered to leave because a member of the public had complained.''

    Where TF do I complain about all those buggers who shove unwanted flyers through my letter box? Usually advertising Balti, Curry, Pizza, Tacos and sundry other reclaimed roadkill masquerading as 'takeaway food' of an ethnic persuasion. And another thing, how come they always manage to sneak in and gum my hall up with the bloody things before I can spot them and run out and tell them to F4&k off?
