Hey, 'Mail', You Spelled 'Gutless' Wrong...

More than 20 caravans were said to have moved onto the grounds of Sovereign House, in Royal Leamington Spa, Warks., last weekend.
Police were powerless...
Hmmm. Not the word I'd have used. 
Witnesses said they saw gangs of men forming a 'production line' as metal was systematically stripped from the ceilings and walls which could be sold for scrap.
That's theft.
Yobs also smashed windows and human faeces was found smeared on the walls and floors.
That's vandalism and anti-social behaviour. But there's more chance of seeing a unanimously-approved Teresa May Brexit plan than a copper turning up to arrest a member of this 'protected species'...
The owners of the building, which has been unoccupied since last September, say it may now have to be demolished.
The police farce that sat on their hands while all this happened should be forced to pay, but since it's the poor long-suffering taxpayer that'd be on the hook, it's pointless.
Trespassing is currently a civil matter but Home Secretary Sajid Javid is considering making it a criminal offence.
He needs to stop considering and start doing. Or is he just another useless CINO too in thrall to identity politics to act?

It really beggars belief that these are a protected species to whom the law doesn't apply. Can senior plod be sued by the company for nonfeasance or misfeasance, I wonder.

Burglary is when a person enters a property, or part of a property, as a trespassersenter and steals. According to the story, both parts of this definition were carried out. The fact that the local Police did nothing is a disgrace.
As part of a squad which arrested 9 of a group of travellers in 1987, women and children included, for the same offence, I find it difficult to believe that nothing was done.
In my case, 4 admitted the offence, the rest were released without charge, 2 vehicles and 3 caravans were found to be stolen and seized, and Customs seized 4 more vehicles for red diesel offences. All in all, a good day, and I got 5 hours overtime out of it!
