Interesting Development...

The police acted after receiving complaints from residents – just over a year since 52-year-old Barbara Williams was mauled to death by a dog in the home in which she lodged with Alex Blackburn-Smith in Demesne Road, Wallington.
Police say the complaints relate to two recent incidents – one where a dog leapt over a garden fence and attacked another dog, and a separate attack by three dogs on a cat.
Up until now, the response to attacks at private property and on other animals has met with a collective 'Meh!' from the police, unless pushed into action by the bad publicity. So it's good to see them taking some preventive action here for a change.

Of course, given that it's Wallington and they've been here before, they still have to contend with those other dumb animals, the local magistrates...

I'm currently enjoying 'Don't Blame the Dog' on BBC3 where each week a pair of typical 'yoof' is brought under the glare of da TV lights and under the intense tutelage of a foreign dog trainer who then basically trains them and In a very short time something their entire UK upbringing and education failed to do.
These are unpleasant animals but it really isn't their fault.

It has been suggested that in the whole of his life, Jeremy Clarkson has only ever made one sensible statement. This followed an untethered dog attacking his child in a public park. The quote, "In cases like this, a dangerous dog should be put down - immediately followed by its owner!", is one with which I concur.

Are you talking about the dogs, or..?

"It has been suggested that in the whole of his life, Jeremy Clarkson has only ever made one sensible statement."

Indeed!
