As public confidence in the police plummets this happens. A "crack" unit of Manchester's finest anti-drug police do a dawn raid in Bolton. But instead of finding a sordid den of iniquity they find a poor old dinner lady having a nice quiet brew before departing to feed the local school kids. With a quick "whoops sorry love" they left and, hopefully, headed for the right house. With police being more "dope" than "crack" these days is it any wonder we are fast losing faith in them.
Which reminds me of a sign I saw last week outside a garden centre. It read:
Top quality weed free
I turned back thinking this must be some kind of Howard Marks type legalise cannabis stunt but underneath it continued:
top soil in stock now.
