The Prince of Fools

The Prince of Fools

Sad to see that HRH has joined Nanny's legion of food Fascist's. HRH's comments yesterday, concerning his desire to ban McDonalds, can be duly consigned to the dustbin of history:

1 People get fat because they eat too much, and exercise too little; not because they eat fast food.

2 You are just as likely to put weight on if you overindulge in Duchy products, as you are if you overindulge in McDonalds burgers.

3 We live in a free market economy, people have the right to choose what they eat.

4 The possible future king should be apolitical, and not side with Nanny.

5 HRH's two sons indulge in burgers from time to time. Indeed, the head chef at Clarence House reportedly makes them from the finest fillet steak.

6 A Duchy original pasty has 25% more calories, 25% more fat and about 3 times the salt of a big mac.

Bang goes my knighthood!

BA Reservations II

Update to my story yesterday about British Scareways.

The House of Frasier

The House of FrasierNanny has taught us all one very vital lesson in life, no matter how trivial the complaint, one person can change things; ie the minority can exercise control over the majority.

Whether this is good or bad, I leave you to judge.

One fine example of an individual changing things occured in my wonderful home town of Croydon the other day.

The House of Fraser chain had recently started an advertising campaign for their new range of fashion bits and pieces.

The slogan for the new campaign was:

"Black is back, white is right"

Can you guess what happened next?

Yes, that's right, one person complained that the slogan was racist.

Needless to say, the House of Fraser realising that in Nanny's Britain we have lost the power of thought and reasoning, pulled the entire campaign nationwide.

The complainant, a woman who does not want to be named, said:

"One of my colleagues first told me about the poster

and I had to see it before I believed it.

I was so amazed I took a picture of it.

All I can think is that they don't have

a very culturally aware marketing team

if they couldn't see how bad it would look.

It echoes a racist poem that was around in the 1960s

which said If you is white, you's alright,

if you's brown, stick around, but if you's black,

hmm, hmm, brother, get back, get back, get back.

I just feel for the people in Croydon who remember

those times and cannot believe

that it was actually put up in a shop window

Now, at first sight, that may seem to be vaguely plausible. However, it is in fact utter bollocks!

Aside from the point that one person being offended should not necessarily be a valid reason for cancelling a campaign, there is a far larger fly in this woman's oinkment.

Her facts are wrong.

The "racist" poem that she inaccurately quotes, was in fact a Blues song written and performed by Big Bill Broonzy, the song was called "Black, Brown, and White Blues" (listen to an extract by clicking the link).

Mr Broonzy was in fact an American Blues singer, and ...errrmm...he was black.

The song was written to express his feelings about the inequalities between the races in America, at that time. Therefore, how the fark can the "complainant" describe it as being racist?

"Just listen to this song I'm singin brother,
you know its true,
If you're black and got to work for a living,
here's what people will say,
Now if you're white,
you're all right,
And if you're brown,
stick around;
But if you're black,
oh brother,
Get back, get back, get back

It's a pity that the House of Frasier did not bother to do some research and stand their ground, even if their slogan was rather lame.

As ever, in Nanny's Britain a little ignorance goes a long way!

BA Reservations

BA Reservations=Totally Useless

A Nation of Beggars II

A Nation of BeggarsFurther to my previous article about Britain being turned into a nation of beggars, those of you who fear that this policy might in some sense exclude those who are newly arrived in this country need have no fear.

It emerged at the end of last year that immigrants wanting to settle in Britain are to be questioned not on British history, but on how to claim benefits.

Doctor John Reid's much "respected" and "world class" Home Orifice, announced that it was extending the scope of the "Britishness" exam. The exam will now include questions on what benefits you are entitled to, and how to lodge a claim.

The subject areas include; the right to housing, healthcare and an education, and equal rights and discrimination. There will of course be no place in the exam for British history.

It seems that the Home Orifice is worried that migrants settling in the UK do not have sufficient knowledge of British law and culture; as noted earlier, we are now a nation of beggars with our arms outstretched from cradle to grave.

Therefore, it is only right and fitting that immigrants be indoctrinated into our ways as well so that they feel that they are one of us.

A Nation of Beggars

A Nation of BeggarsCongratulations to Kizzy Neal, from Torbay, who got herself pregnant at the age of 13. She says that having a baby is now regarded as "fashionable" among schoolgirls.

So much so in fact, that four of her classmates have also got themselves pregnant since Christmas.

Here's a radical suggestion, stop paying benefits; that might cure a few people of the delusion of a "fashionable" pregnancy.

We have become a nation of beggars, on our knees with our hands outstretched from cradle to grave.

Get off your knees, and take responsibility for your own lives.

What was it that our beloved leader once said?

"Educashun, educashun, educashun!"

Were we not to see some great revolution in the educashun of our children and young people?

Hmm, well it seems that there has been a revolution; but not maybe the sort that Nanny would have you believe.

It seems that educashunal standards are now so poor, that even students of media studies (that most "Mickey Mouse" of degrees) are having to be placed on remedial courses to improve their lousy English.

Lecturers at Kingston University have recently said that they are forced to give new students lessons in basic English.

Anna Kiernan, a lecturer, is quoted:

"Even with good grades, some students' English

is not up to standard when they arrive at university

It seems that some institutions have been dumbing down their entry requirements, in order to help meet Nanny's target of putting 50% of young people in higher education by 2010.

At least this will keep the unemployment figures down!

No Article

Sorry folks, no article today; business and alcohol intervened.


Wednesday, February 21, 2007


The poor old British public are bombarded by Nanny and her minions with propaganda about food and "healthy" eating.

On one side we are told that it is wrong to be fat.

On the other, we are told that it is wrong to be skinny.

As if this is not bad enough, the commercial "non governmental" media get in on the act; by producing shows that castigate those of us who do not fit the ideal form...whatever that is?

I have this simple question for the Channel 4 website:

Why do you pass Gillian McKeith, she of "You Are What You Eat" fame, off as a medical doctor?

Nanny succeeds because there are far too many people and organisations willing to "speak" for her, and do her bidding.

In other news, it seems that McKeith is now feeling bullied!

Nanny's Anti Fag Gestapo

Nanny's Anti Fag Gestapo
Goodness me, my earlier article about Nanny's Anti Fag Gestapo certainly seems to have caused some "discussion".

Anyhoo, it got me thinking about how to throw a spanner into the works of Nanny's evil spying plan. I remembered, as a child, having some fake fags that emitted a fine white powder when you puffed them.

A brief trawl of the net reveals that these products are still readily available, eg here. Therefore a simple, and legal, way to make Nanny's spying game unworkable is for people to start using these fake fags in public and to clog up the legal system with spurious cases.

Go to the pub, or restaurant of your choice, then start puffing away on the fake fag (filled with the white powder of your choice). Nanny's Gestapo will, needless to say, be all over you like a rash; threatening you with trial and fines etc etc.

However, you have not broken the law, as you have not been smoking. Pretty soon, the courts will fill up with erroneous fag smoking cases, Nanny will realise that her plan to spy on us is unworkable.

Does this sound like a plan?

Nanny Wastes Your Money

Nanny Wastes Your Money
What a spectacularly absurd waste of money!

Following a recommendation from a UK parliamentary committee, that more should be done to meet the needs of Muslim prisoners, Nanny's jails are to make every possible effort to make available special cutlery for the Muslim prisoners.

Red handled cutlery will be used, locked away from normal cutlery, so that the prisoners can be assured that their cutlery has not been contaminated by pork.

Each cutlery kit, of which 900 have been bought so far, costs between £500-£800.

Aside from the obvious issues about integration, it seems that as ever with Nanny this is an unnecessary "accommodation" to Muslims.

One Muslim resident of HM's Wakefield jail said:

"We've all eaten in restaurants where no one cares how food is prepared.

None except the strictest Muslims bother to check

whether different equipment is used

it's a waste of money

I would also venture to suggest, that strict Muslims shouldn't be in jail in the first place....or am I being a tad naive on that point?

Nanny Bans Fast Food...If You're Poor

Nanny Bans Fast Food...If You're Poor
Nanny hates fat people and...errrm...thin people.

I guess she hates everyone then.

Anyhoo, as part of Nanny's ongoing policy of hating people and what they eat, Nanny's chums in the Medical Research Council (MRC) have recently announced that chip shops shops and fast-food outlets should be barred from opening in areas of high deprivation.

In other words, poor people are too stupid to be trusted to eat what is good for them!

The MRC have stated that the high prevalence of such takeaways and restaurants in poorer areas may be one of the factors behind rising obesity, because they make unhealthy meals the easy choice for residents there.

Nanny has in fact coined a new word, in the journal "Appetite" the MRC said that fast food outlets in poor areas created an "obesogenic" environment.

Dr Sally Macintyre, from the MRC unit in Glasgow, said:

"Planners perhaps need to take into account

levels of deprivation as well as all the other factors

they consider when granting permission for new businesses

Tam Fry, chairman of the Child Growth Foundation, said:

"We have got to subsidise fruit and vegetable shops

and we have got to limit fish and chip shops

and burger restaurants to have an impact

on the health of the most deprived communities

How about educating people as to what is healthy, then letting them make their own decision?

Way too radical for Nanny!

Nanny's Special Gestapo

Nanny's Special GestapoI know that many of you cynics, living out there in Nanny's Britain, believe that local councils are a waste of space.

Councils, in your cynical view, are staffed by inefficient jobsworths whose only goal is to stifle individual creativity and freedom by imposing layer upon layer of bureaucratic rules upon us.

Folks, that simply isn't true!

Nanny is ensuring that our beloved and respected local councils will serve us even better in the future, by spending around £30M on special training for council operatives.

What will these operatives do Ken, I hear you ask?

Will they be trained to provide us with better services?

Will they be trained in customer care?

Will better quality people be hired?


Nanny will in fact use this money to train a whole new branch of her anti smoking Gestapo.

Smoking, aside from fat people and...errr..thin people, is one of Nanny's pet hates.

Therefore she is training a specially selected group of local council Gestapo, to spy on those of us who indulge in a quiet fag (cigarette for my American readers) in forbidden areas.

Thousands of "respected" council staff are being trained, as I write, to police the smoking ban in bars, restaurants and shops in England.

Nanny is paying £30M to train her Gestapo to give on-the-spot £50 fines to individuals, and take court action against premises.

Nanny's Gestapo will have the power to enter premises undercover, allowing them to sit among drinkers, and will even be able to photograph and film people.

Nanny's Gestapo will become fully active on 1 July. They will patrol virtually all enclosed public places including offices, factories, pubs and bars.

Business owners will be liable for £200 fines if proper signs are not displayed and, potentially, fines of £2,500 if they refuse to enforce the ban.

Our beloved and respected local authorities have been given the power to enforce the ban, so it does not consume police time. As we know, the police have their hands full arresting people for building snow penises.

Nanny's Gestapo will initially consist of an army of 1200 jobsworth busybodies, with nothing better to do than to stick their noses into other people's business.

Ian Gray, policy officer for the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and chief trainer for the government course, said:

"..there will be some occasions where action has to be taken

and I am sure the compliance officers will not shy away from that

The battle lines between the state and the people are being drawn, time to man the barricades!

Gray added, chillingly (drop him an email

"These officers do not have to identify themselves

when they go into premises and

they can even film and photograph people

to gather evidence although this may not be appropriate in many cases.

There will be two ways of doing this,

either staff can go in and identify themselves to the landlord,

but they don't have to

Those of you who don't believe that we are living in a police state should wake up bloody fast. Once these Gestapo are on the streets, they will be used for more than just anti smoking spying.

"In Germany they came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
The they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up

Martin Niemoeller

Let us try to create the ideal job description for a member of Nanny's new Gestapo. I will start the ball rolling:

-Sexually inadequate
-Uniform fetish

Please add to the list.

PratsTime to award my prestigious Part of The Week Award. This week's award goes to Havant Borough Council, who sent bailiffs into the Courtyard Restaurant in Havant Hampshire because the owner had a debt of 90p.

Bailiffs ordered the chef to stop cooking, and customers waiting for tables were sent away.

The bailiffs then went on to threaten to seize property and equipment unless Miss Davis, the owner, paid the 90p she owed the local council plus £183.10 to cover their costs.

Erm...does this not seem a tad excessive?

Why does Nanny use such extreme actions for such trivial matters?

Why does Nanny not employ equally vigorous methods for somewhat more serious issues eg drug dealing, assaults, religious extremism etc?

Needless to say, Miss Davis, was a tad pissed off about the whole affair.


"It's an extraordinarily heavy-handed action for 90p.

I'm angry about it because this sort of thing

can really hurt the reputation of a restaurant

Miss Davis had owed £725.90 to Havant Borough Council in business rates.

After the council gave her seven days to pay up before calling in its debt agency, Equita, she paid £725 by cheque but left off the 90p.

The council informed Equita of the outstanding debt and the firm sent round two bailiffs to get the cash back.

Hilary Hopgood, the revenues client manager at the council, said:

"There was a breakdown of communication.

Nevertheless, what happened is regrettable


Equita says it will refund Miss Davis the £183.10 she paid in bailiff costs, but not the 90p.

Havant Borough Council, well deserving of Prats of The Week!

Nanny Bans Penis's (Or is it Penii?)

Nanny Bans Penis
The recent snowfall in the UK, aside from causing all the predictable problems with our "world class" transport system, has led to a flurry (how very witty of me) of Nanny type directives.

Many of Nanny's state schools have banned snowballing...seemingly snowballs are dangerous, and present a threat to the future of mankind.

In addition, John Knowles, a student who erected a 4ft snow phallus fell foul of Nanny's gestapo.

Police Cunstable Wiley (I kid you not) apprehended Knowles in mid erection (so to speak), and fined him £80.

Cunstable Wiley made John de-erect his phallus then took him to the local police station, where he imposed a the fine for a public order offence.

Funny how drug dealers, muggers and other assorted scum seem to be able to avoid such speedy punishment isn't it?

Nanny really needs to sort out her priorities.

Congratulations to Nanny's ever alert and customer orientated police force.

Last month it was reported that Auzair Khan, a taxi driver, caught red-handed on camera, a thug breaking into his car and using a homemade petrol bomb to destroy it.

Did the police help?

Did they fark!

Mr Khan claims that the police failure to respond forced him to turn detective, to collect evidence against the arsonist himself.

Mr Khan had been fire bombed before, in December in Bradford, therefore he installed a CCTV system outside of his house.

This was as a result of police telling him that there was nothing they could do, they didn't even take a statement from an eye witness who believed he could identify the culprit.

When it happened again on December 20, Mr Khan told the police that he had film, a discarded bottle top possibly bearing the arsonist's finger print and a swab of what he believed was the offender's spit, which may have given police his DNA profile.

Nanny's police, being ever alert and on duty, informed Mr Khan that the evidence could not be collected for a week as the officer "was on holiday."

If only the criminals would take holidays too!

Oddly, only when Mr Khan released the CCTV to his local newspaper, offered a £1,000 reward and put his own appeal for information out did West Yorkshire Police finally send someone round to pick up his "evidence."

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said an investigating was carried out into the first incident, and described the police response to the second arson as "textbook."

Textbook indeed!

When law abiding citizens lose respect for the forces of law and order, anarchy will ensue.

One in three households across Britain is now dependent on the state for at least half its income.

Over seven million households are getting most of their income from government handouts.

Nanny is buying votes, and turning us into a nation of beggars with our hands outstretched.

Wasting Your Money

The regulars amongst you will know that I am an FCA and auditor, with a few years' experience of working in multi nationals around the world.

One of the many things that I have learned, aside from always going to the loo before a meeting and drying my hands afterwards, is that bonuses should be used to reward good results and exceptional performance.

Bonuses should not be used to reward failure.

Therefore I have to ask the question, why the hell have the staff at the Child Support Agency Staff (CSA) been paid over £25M in bonuses; given that the CSA is a total load of old bollocks!

Even Bliary Poppins herself has said that the organ is not "fit for purpose".

In 2002-03 £11M was paid in the form of bonuses, and £4M was paid last year (when John Hutton the Work and Pensions Secretary announced that the CSA was to be scrapped).

The CSA has a backlog of nearly 240,000 cases, and more than £3.5 billion of uncollected debts on its books.

Around one in five calculations or assessments are inaccurate, and it currently takes around 36 weeks to deal with new applications.

CSA staff admitted entering inaccurate information about families into the agency's computer system, and redirecting calls to answer phones.

Well done lads!

Needless to say Nanny's Department for Work and Pensions think the bonuses are great.


"The bonus scheme, agreed by the unions, rewards the hard work of individuals.

CSA staff are, of course, eligible to be recognised in this way.

The CSA's well documented problems stem from the design of the system

introduced in 1993, but staff should not be punished for them

Sorry, but have I totally misunderstood my last 20 years in business, aren't salaries meant to reward people for their work?

Money well spent!

There you go folks, in Nanny's world lousy work gets rewarded, especially when it's you and I that are paying for it!

The Speed Bandits

Beware, I have learned of a vicious plot by Nanny to introduce Draconian new restrictions on speeding.

Watch the video to see the chilling details of her plan.

Thursday, February 08, 2007

Coming Soon..The Speedbandits

Nanny Bans Mums

Nanny Bans MumsNanny knows no bounds when imposing her "zero tolerance" approach on her charges.

Ever conscious that we are not all the same, Nanny seeks to ensure that those who are in her view the most "disadvantaged" have the rules bent in their favour.

Instead of seeking to help people strive to improve themselves, or face reality, Nanny seeks to wrap everyone in cotton wool.

This of course does them immense harm in the long run, as people become dependent on the state and incapable of facing life's shitty realities.

One recent example of this absurd approach to life comes in the form of Nanny's ban on Mother's Day cards.

Helen Starkey, headmistress of Primary School in Carmarthen West Wales, has banned the making of Mother's Day cards because she doesn't want to upset children without a mother.


"More than five per cent of children here

are separated from their birth mother

and have either no contact or no regular contact with their mother.

This decision was not taken because of any philosophical attitude

towards the celebration of Mothering Sunday,

but to protect a significant number of children in our school.

In all our dealings with these children

we have to exercise great sensitivity.

I am not against Mother's Day

but no time will be devoted to making cards in lessons

What about the 95% of children who do have mothers?

Why can't the 5% without mothers make a card for the person who is acting as mother?

A ridiculous move, guaranteed to make the 5% feel more self conscious and less able to face life's harsh realities.

Isn't that child abuse of sorts?

EducashunNanny announced her much vaunted shake up in educashun yesterday; aside from a rather "eclectic" mix of new subjects such as, global warming and Urdu, the new curriculum also includes a few other "ideas".

Structured timetables are to be abandoned, and pupils will be given the chance to mark their friends' work as well as their own.

Oh yes, that's a corker of an idea!

Pupils will also have to complete 12 key 'life skills', this includes making a 50 mile unaccompanied journey by bus or train.

Erm...isn't learning how to use the train or bus something that parents are meant to teach their children?

Well, I think the most appropriate phrase that can describe this new curriculum is:

Big Brother

Big Brother
Those of you who enjoy interacting with the taxman, may be pleased to hear that you may have even more opportunities to "interact" with him in the future.

Seemingly taxpayers may have their phones tapped and their homes bugged in the future, if new surveillance powers are granted to HM Revenue & Customs tax inspectors.

Nanny's chums in HMRC claim that inspectors need such powers to tackle the growing threat from organised and white-collar crime.

Needless to say not everyone is convinced, lawyers and accountants argue that these powers could breach human rights rules.

Harry Travers, a solicitor who specialises in defending clients targeted by HMRC, says that the new powers were a possible breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.


"A number of Customs and Excise prosecutions have spectacularly collapsed

in recent years due to the abuse by officers of their powers,

not because their powers were inadequate

Nanny's chums in the HMRC are nonplussed by the objections. A spokesman for HMRC claims that the new powers for bugging are a rational move, after the merger of Customs and the Inland Revenue in 2005.

Oh joy!

Saturday, February 03, 2007


My article yesterday about Law and Order certainly seems to have "hit a chord" with many of you. Indeed one story, submitted by Grumpy, is quite shocking and deserves a more visible position on this site.

Therefore here is Grumpy's post in full, and unedited:

"A few years ago - but still in the Golden Age of Blair - I went to the aid of a policeman who was having the shit kicked out of him by several yobs (can I still say that?). The main assailant was a very big, very drunk and VERY aggressive young chap(can I still say that?). As I was reluctant to get my own head kicked in, I used a degree of force to persuade the young fellow(?) in question to desist. When, some minutes later the police and ambulance arrived, I was thanked for my public-spiritedness, the damaged policeman was taken to hospital and the yob carted off to the police station.

Some weeks later, another bobby came to see me; thanked me on behalf of his mate and then cautioned me before telling me that I was going to be charged with assaulting the bastard who was trying to kill his mate.

The charge against me was later dropped because the yob's brief had arranged a deal with prosecuting counsel; he would agree to drop the charge against me if the police dropped the charge of GBH and replaced it with one of 'Public Disorder'
Needless to say, I now look the other way if ANYTHING happens on the street."

Thanks Grumpy, pretty sickening state of affairs isn't it?

Somewhat ironic that Bliar and his chums are all lawyers/second rate lawyers, isn't it?

Does anyone actually have any faith in law and order in this country anymore?

Friday, February 02, 2007

Law and Order

Law and OrderWhen ordinary, decent, hardworking citizens lose their faith in the legal system and are no longer protected from persuing their legitimate activities and lives by those that they elected to orifice, then the country is finished.

Anarchy will take the place of order, and law will be the perk of a few well connected persons.

I am saddened and disgusted to see that this situation appears to be the norm in Britain these days. In the last few days we have seen a serving Prime Minister interviewed by the police again, and several of his his henchmen/women arrested by the police.

Precisely how can the people of Britain be expected to have faith in the law, if their elected leaders do not set an example?

We are without a doubt currently being governed by one of the most corrupt, and odious, governments it has been our displeasure to endure in the last couple of centuries or so.

Maybe some of you feel that the fact the Bliar and his henchmen/woman get away with what they do is of no consequence, and that if they are regularly being interviewed/arrested by the police it doesn't matter.

Think again, the system is breaking down.

Take for example the case reported yesterday of chip shop owner Nicholas Tyers and his son Lee (20). He ran the Queensgate Fisheries in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.

Some months ago they saw a 12 year old thug (a nasty piece of work by all accounts, prone to trouble making) who had spat at a customer and smashed his window the day before.

The two men did their bit for society, and law and order, made a citizen's arrest.

They put the thug in the family car, and drove him back to the shop to call the police.

Can you guess what happened next?

Was the thug arrested?

Were the Tyers commended?


Mr Tyers and his son were charged with kidnapping, and went to trial at Hull Crown Court for an offence that carries a maximum sentence of life in jail.

Finally, some six months later, the judge halted the trial and ordered the jury to clear them.

Judge John Dowse said the men had acted "reasonably", and gave the Crown Prosecution Service legal bollocking for being total wankers for taking them to court.


"I began this case asking whether it was in the public interest,

whether it should have been pressed

and the result is

it has not been in the public interest.

I raise the question of whether or not

there are far more serious cases to bring

The thug was only held for between two and six minutes and the evidence to support a case of kidnap was "not strong", said the judge.

Needless to say, no legal action has been taken against the thug, who cannot be named for legal reasons, in connection with the shop incident.

The cost to the taxpayers was £60K

The cost to the Tyers, incalculable

The cost to society...our liberties and freedom.

Mr Tyers has now sold the chip shop, that he ran for 10 years, and is looking for a job.

He said:

"I have faced six months of hell waiting to prove my innocence.

I have lost my faith in the judicial process.

The case should never have been brought.

When you are the victim of crime and you see the culprit

your immediate reaction is to take him to the police.

I can see why people turn a blind eye to crime

and don't bother reporting it

Mr Tyers had been having trouble with scum bag yobs for a while, particularly this one, stealing drinks and breaking a window, which caused around £400 damage.

He added:

"This lad spat at a customer and smashed the window to smithereens.

We had a look around for him that night, but he ran away.

I didn't see him again until the next day

He went on:

"We went back to the house rather than the police station

to call the police from there.

Nine times out of ten Bridlington Police Station is unmanned

and you have to speak to someone on the telephone.

We thought it best to call the police from home.

When we got to the shop a police car was passing

so we flagged him down and told them we had got the lad

The Tyers found that they were now the criminals, because the scum bag complained he had not been taken straight to the police station.

Mr Tyers said:

"We were going down the police station

on the understanding we were going to make a statement as victims.

The police turned the tables on us.

I was finger printed and had my picture taken and treated like a criminal.

I felt as if I was doing my public duty.

The case has been a complete waste of time and money.

I have made four separate appearances at court and gone on trial

Mr Tyers said the "final straw" came when his windows were broken again and he sold the business.

"All the police say when you call them is here is your crime number,

claim off the insurance

Can anyone tell me what is now the point of our legal system and our police force?

All I can see is that it is there to protect the interests of the failed lawyer Blair and his chums in Nu Labour, such Falconer (another lawyer) etc, who use the system for their own ends.

Until Britain is rid of Nu Labour we will see the continuing decay of law and order, as the system is abused for the privileged few.

Nu Labour need to be cut out of the political body, as one would cut out a cancer.

PlodThere are times when, even though I have been publishing stories on this site for over two years now, even I am flabbergasted (can I say flabbergasted on a public site?) at the boneheadeness of the Nanny state.

Well over a year ago, Jane Furnival was involved in a minor road accident in Hackney. Using her common sense, in order to ensure that the insurance companies etc were happy, she took some photos of the accident.

Unfortunately for her, the other driver and his girlfriend appear to have been off their heads. Ms Furnival claims that the driver's girlfriend violently attacked her.

Needless to say, Ms Furnival reported the incident to plod and provided some photos of the alleged assailant.

As Steve McGarret used to say:

"Book 'em Danno"

Unfortunately not, for you see dear reader this is Nanny Britain. Ms Furnival was told by a police officer:

"You brought this on yourself

people round here don't like being photographed

Now correct me if I am wrong, but is Britain not infested with CCTV?

Do we not have the largest number of cameras, following our every move, per head of the population?

Does not an audience of dimwits sit down on a daily basis, to watch a bunch of sad losers sit in house being filmed 24 hours a day?

Do not youths with mobiles take pictures of attacks and other moronic actions for their amusement, and the amusement of their moronic friends?

Therefore how can plod say that "You brought this on yourself"?

We, as a nation, are perpetually on film and being watched!

Anyhoo, bringing the story up to the present time period, plod has not interviewed, arrested or charged anybody...btw Ms Furnival also produced the car's registration number.

Fear not, justice of a sort will be done, the other driver has now lodged a counter claim against Ms Furnival's insurance company. These details could be used by plod to aid their "investigation".

Oh sorry, my mistake, plod has said that the matter has been closed because there is a six-month statutory limit on investigations into common assault, and they 'ran out of time'.

Ms Furnival's account of the incident should have, I would have thought, caused plod to do some form of police work...any ideas why not?


"The driver, a man of Asian appearance, went mad,

crouching on the road and screaming, 'No photos, no photos.'

His girlfriend punched me twice on the face.

I suffered severe bruising.

I was stunned and I pleaded with passers-by to be witnesses,

but nobody would agree.

Both the driver and his girlfriend were racially abusing me,

calling me 'white trash' and 'a fat bitch'.

It was like something from a Quentin Tarantino movie.

I called the police.

When I gave a statement at Stoke Newington police station

the officer told me, 'You were foolish to take pictures.

That's why you got hit.

Nobody round here likes having their photos taken.

You brought it on yourself'
" .

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police in Hackney said:

"Both offences were thoroughly investigated.

Officers were able to trace the registered vehicle,

identify the driver and pass all relevant details

to the victim to ensure she could pursue the matter

through the relevant insurance channels.

In relation to the assault, officers identified an address

for the driver and visited it to arrest him.

But he no longer resided at that address

and there was no forwarding address

Norman Brennan of the Victims of Crime Trust hits the nail on the head:

"It is bizarre that the insurance company

can liaise with this man but the police have seemed unable to do so

Sounds to me as though the police did not want to pursue this.

Can anyone tell me exactly what the point of the law is now anymore?

Once people lose faith in the rule of law, the country is finished.
