Annual Police Terror
The Annual Police Terror has officially begun. Traffic filth had a 'Police Drink Drive Check Point' in central Lancaster at 11-00 this morning, no doubt trying to catch people who had enjoyed too good a time last night.
They were also getting belligerent, or at least one of them was, with people they thought had dodgy tax discs. The fella I saw had a fine tax disc, but his windscreen was a little steamed up with condensation. Cue disappointed copper.
Still, I suppose it stops them shooting children playing with toy guns or, as Anonymous pointed out in comments to my post yesterday, Brazilian electricians.
So, it's now time for my traditional Christmas joke about the traffic police, traditional because it's an ancient joke:
Q.What's the difference between a police Range Rover and a hedgehog?
A.The hedgehog has the pricks on the outside.
