I'm not sure if this report says more about our robbers or our shopkeepers.

The word on the street is that the three lads held up the shop with a shotgun. The owner, the most excellent Mr McDonagh (no relation), walks in to find a lad holding the gun to his missus while the other two are loading 100k worth of swag. Does he submit? Does he f##k!

He takes advantage of the sudden screaming and DISARMS the guy, removes the cartridges (to ensure no-one cheats ) and proceeds to HOSPITALISE the guy while his mates leg it, only for one to be nailed by another shopkeeper and the other to be running tackled by a female officer of the law. Ouch.

Result, two in hospital, all to be charged, red faces in prison. SCORE

I hope it does end that way .. cos I'm getting rather fecked with the law coming down on those, who merely try to protect their property in the face of violent force, i.e. them not being able to defend themselves properly and forcefully in the face of such a threat

A bloke who once worked for me tried to rob his village post office with two lengths of copper pipe taped together in a sports holdall and a pair of tights on his head. After he'd made his demands the post office keeper said, "Steve, just go home." He got four years.

He'd have to be, for you to employ him as your butler.

I don't think there'll be much trouble - we're a little more relaxed about that kind of stuff. Different if he'd tipped him in a minor RTA , 'cos then there's INSURANCE to pay the legal vultures, sry, Eagles.

Another case:

Mr Nally is now a free man and something of a Folk Hero. I'd like to shake his hand....

I'd probably not ring his doorbell though

One less knacker is a good thing. Congratulations to the man, he should never have seen the inside of a courtroom.
The PC brigade will be here soon...
