The country's financial situation has now become so desperate, that Nanny has resorted to theft and demanding money for the safe return of the stolen merchandise.
Marcus Morris (of Leeds) discovered this to his cost the other day, when he parked his VW Polo near to Leeds city centre as he went for a job interview.
Some 30 minutes later he returned to find that his car had gone.
Guess who took it?
Yes, that's right, the police.
The police told Mr Morris that he had left a window open and a CD wallet in the back of the car.
Hence, for his own good, the police took the car to a storage facility.
When Mr Morris collected his car the next morning Nanny gave him a bill for £150.
Chief Insp Elizabeth Belton of West Yorkshire police said:
"Officers regularly patrol our communities looking for opportunities to prevent crime, which is exactly what has happened on this occasion.
The vehicle was left insecure with valuables on show in an area with significant levels of car crime and we were unable to locate the owner.
We make absolutely no apology whatsoever for the officer's actions, which have prevented this vehicle becoming a target for thieves. Had a thief got there first it would have been a very different story.
We need people to take responsibility for their own property and take any valuables with them when they park up. We hope Mr Morris's story will serve as a reminder."
It's a great wheeze, innocent people are punished and fined.
Far easier than catching criminals.
