Money Well Spent

Money Well SpentNanny and her police are to be congratulated on the time and money spent on the investigation of "the Nation's sweetheart" Anne Robinson, for her "anti Welsh" comments in 2003.

Seemingly, Nanny was so annoyed at Anne that she spent nearly £4K on a police investigation into the comments.

Mind boggling isn't it?

Dear old Anne, talking about her childhood and the large groups of people from North Wales who shopped at her mother's market stall in Liverpool, branded the Welsh as "irritating and annoying" on the BBC show "Room 101".

Needless to say, 12 people with nothing better to do complained to the police.


Nanny's chum North Wales Police Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom set up an inquiry, and sent two detectives to London to interview Greg Dyke (Head of the BBC).

Don't our police have better things to do with their time?

Seemingly not.

Anyhoo, after wasting £4K and 96 hours on this "serious crime"; Brunstrom wrote to Dyke, explaining that there was "insufficient evidence" to take the matter to court.

For the record, one superintendent, a detective chief inspector and two detective inspectors were involved in the probe.

Nanny's chum Carl Sargeant, Labour AM for Alyn and Deeside, said:

"I would have expected the investigation to cost a lot more than it did."

Another prat!

Come on, are people now so thin skinned that they have to bring in the police at the first "perceived" trivial insult?

Are our police so inept that they then have to investigate these absurd complaints?

    What a waste of time and money!

    What a thin skinned lot these Celts are

    I'm sure if a Welshman had said something similar about the English the police would have taken no action...

    Who remembers that Welsh "comedian" called Max Boyce who used to appear regularly on TV and made anti English jokes his stock in trade? Some of us found HIM extremely irritating. However we used television's OFF switch on the television and went and found better things to do. We did not complain to the Plods about the man

  2. £41.66 per hour eh? Makes some of the profession's trainees seem remarkably cheap.

  3. I feel sorry for the clowns who complained. It's a wonder that they didn't claim damages as well. And if the North Wales Police have nothing better to do then they are overstaffed.

    I guess the one's on here are the narrowminded english people who left these messages about why the police were called in to investigate those disgusting Anti-racist remarks about the welsh people, are obviously the same english people here who have nothing better to do then to make these spitefull jealous comments, about a nice little country with nice charming people who keeps them selves away from you english.

    Well done wales for standing up to this bigheaded country who have bigheaded people like Anne robinson that lives in a horrible place called england.

    Well then, being of Welsh herritage I must say that not only am I appauled at the careless babble of another English whore, I am also delighted; this gives us more ammo to use when we the Celts (you know, the "thin skinned" people) have our day and crush your pompouse asses under our boots and plant the Irish, Scottish, and Welsh flags directly up the queens ass. We are the Wolves that will hunt you down and make you pay for all the wrongs you have done to our people.
