You won't see me coming....
Not quite sure what you're getting at there, Jools. Every one of those sorts of common gardening/household items has been used to kill or maim people -probably just within London in the month -the way the stats are going. You recall the charity shop attack where a off-his-meds member of staff attacked others, including someone I'm close to, with a garden fork? True anything can be a weapon in the wrong hands but bladed items (and the picture shows balded items) tend to lend themselves easily to misuse.
*edit 'bladed' not 'balded' incase anyone was confused.
Not another turf war!
Oh Lord, would my garden shed be regarded as a weapons cache?
PC Onthe Lamb of Almondbury once convinced himself that I needed a hedgecutter licence to operate the blade on the public side. MTG
Jack Ketch might appreciate this aside. I once thoroughly confused an assistant in a shop in France. With my superb command of the lingo I tried to say that I was blind without my glasses: I told her I was bald without my glasses . . .
@DCBain *snigger* but I see your foreign language faux pas and raise you this one: Aged 17 I was in a bar in Hamburg and shouted out the name of the bar woman across the crowded bar room to get service. She had previously told me her name was 'Uschi' -which was for her age a fairly common German girl's name (Uschi Glas springs to mind) but I had never encountered it before then and I misheard what she said in English (because I spoke no real German at the time). She probably said "I'm Uschi" which I heard as something else and later shouted out "Oi MUSCHI!".Uschi is a girl's name, 'muschi' means 'pussy' (yes that sort).Oh how we all laughed.
So ban everything eh Jack? What next, Masterchef with a spork?
If I look hard enough I might find your lawnmower Melvin. Jaded
I wouldn't be surprised if another bent Plod 'acquired' it and filed down the serial number, Jaded.
I would be very surprised Melvin if that happened but I'm not a mentally ill loser who thinks the worst of everyone.The trade in stolen lawnmowers is only surpassed by drugs and people smuggling. Apparently.Jaded
So ban everything eh Jack? Huh? Where did i say something should be banned because some twat has misused it as a weapon? I was merely pointing out that ridiculing @police in this case was perhaps unfair.
"Every one of those sorts of common gardening/household items has been used to kill or maim people -probably just within London in the month -the way the stats are going."Or they could simply have been left by a local council gardener...?"Not another turf war!"Oh, very good! "Oh Lord, would my garden shed be regarded as a weapons cache?"The drones have been dispatched to check!"I told her I was bald without my glasses . . ."LOL!"If I look hard enough I might find your lawnmower Melvin.
