We were told by CPS in Court yesterday not to fix trials during the olympic rip-offs as there would be no Police witnesses available owing to the fact that they are seconded to London.
So, quite apart from the anguish caused to those who might be involved in criminal trials, and an open invitation to criminals throughout the West Midlands (of which there are one or two), that proportion of the local authority taxation paid by the people of the West Midlands which goes to pay for the Police, is being diverted, without so much as a by your leave, nor compensation offered.
2. I hope she doesn't end up in a wheelchair.
I was in Sainsburys in Wolverhampton today and the toilet cubicle for the use of the disabled (am I allowed to say that?) were about to be occupied by a young man in a wheelchair who was having a little difficulty holding the door open and manoeuvring his wheelchair into a suitable position to effect entry, at which point a perfectly able bodied woman in her thirties, I'd guess, walked past him and stepping into the cubicle, wrenched the door from his grasp and began to close it.
The young man made a relatively innocuous comment about discourtesy and the woman poked her head back around the door, looked him up and down and said "Chicken Pie off" before pulling the door closed.
Oh, if I had but possessed a wedge with which to jam the door closed...
