Police just stand around with their thumbs up their...

"It was pretty bizarre for that time of day."
For any time of day, I'd have said..

Sounds to me of another example where they didn't need to close the road but simply turn up and make some arrests.

Plod just love to inconvenience everyone for their convenience.

But it isn't just them. Our council shut down miles of main roads so a few dozen lycra clad dickheads could go for a run.

An eyewitness has stated that he overheard the man say "Mr McGee, don't make me angry, you wouldn't like me when I'm angry!!!" ;-)

I agree with Lord T. The road should have been left open and if any local Deptford rubberneckers were injured, or worse, it would only have improved the gene pool.

Would that "run" have been a hugely successful half marathon with some serious runners and a shed- load of eejits raising money for summat or other, supported by your failing local paper?

You live in St. Albans then.

Had it, suffered it, do it all again next year.

I don't think this chap was GREEN! A taser or a axe eh? Dem witnesses is sooo unreliable man. Deptford eh? No matter how much gentrification it is still a shithole.

Lord T said...

Nope not St Albans and even if it was they should arrange their hobbies and or sponsoring without inconveniencing other people. I've been sponsored before and not had roads shut for me. I do accept my hobby is not PC and therefor, although not banned, yet, frowned upon while dressing in lycra and inconveniencing others is acceptable to TPTB.

XX one man in possession of a weapon believed to be an axe or Taser. XX

Because the two look SOOOO damn similar, don't they?

The raising of money for "good causes" seems to be at the root of these mega runs. The more local involvement, the more money raised. The more local involvement being totally screwed for a day while Mister Blobby and two bearded girls from St. Trinians stagger the last few miles. "It seemed like a good idea at the time", said Blobby when asked why the fuck he's doing this.

Anyway, it's nice to know that there are people who raise money who do not want the world and it's cousin to make way. Hat off to you, sir T.

It certainly seems that way.

"Because the two look SOOOO damn similar, don't they?"

Yeah, I had to read that bit twice too!
