Prat of The Week

Prat of The WeekIn a regular feature on Nanny Knows Best, we like to give an award to an individual who by actions or words has proven himself/herself to be an utter prat.

This week's Prat of The Week Award goes to North Wales police chief, Richard Brunstrom.

You will recall that Brunstrom has featured on this site before, in connection with the investigation into Anne Robinson's comments about the Welsh.

She described them as being "irritating and annoying".

Brunstrom's force managed to clock up £4K in costs, as they doggedly pursued their investigation in the Nation's Sweetheart; needless to say the investigations came to nowt.

Anyhoo, Brunstrom has managed to find himself involved in yet another investigation concerning alleged anti Welsh comments.

This time it involves Blairy Poppins herself, who allegedly shouted "fucking Welsh" when the Welsh dissed him during an election vote.

Brunstrom has now "hinted" in an interview that Blairy is in fact under investigation for this heinous thought crime; clearly the police in Wales have nothing better to do with their time!

In the interview Mr Brunstrom said:

"A complaint has been made. We are investigating. It is a live case. We did not seek this.

The government has given us laws and I think they are good laws and we must deal with that.

We have to balance resources but we have definitely put more effort into hate crime.

There is almost no way we could not investigate what is being reported (about Blair). It is not trivial.

I cannot comment further but I can tell you we take this seriously

Then, as if to add credibility to his rather odd view of what constitutes an effective use of police time, Brunstrom bizarrely claims that a decade ago police in North Wales "were seen as an English force of occupation, and with some justification".

One small fly in the ointment of this outburst, most of the senior officers were Welsh by birth and upbringing and (according to one retired officer) fiercely loyal and proud to be Welsh.

Well in this site's view Brunstrom well deserves the Prat of The Week Award, for bringing the police force in Wales into such disrepute.


  1. Would it not be fitting Baz if Bliar was oiked in for questioning, slung in a cell for three hours with a gay rapist and made to give a DNA sample ? And possibly worse, having his repulsive spouse come along to be his duty solicitor? ;o)

    sky_dog: Yes it would be fitting for him to get a taste of his own medicine. But somehow I don't think it will happen.

    Which Part of the Week do you plan to award? ;)

    TBH I think it would be time well spent IF, and only if, Nanny was guaranteed to be signally embarrassed by the investigation - as others have already observed.

  4. Oops!!!

    Well spotted Grant:)

  5. Mr Brunstrom is the Prat of Every Week. Ask anyone from North Wales.

    I think to be fair the glorious leader of the People's undemocratic Republic of Brunstromania can't win this award ; if only because if he was allowed to then no-one else ever would.

    Did you know, by the way, that the welsh phrase "Bryn Strohm" means "complete dickhead ?"
