"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Boys In Blue

Peelian principle No. 7: "...the police are the public and the public are the police..."

Po-faced Puritan, Superintendent Andrew Murray, Oxford City commander with Thames Valley Police, said:  'I have spoken to the officers concerned and reminded them in no uncertain terms that tobogganing on duty, on police equipment and at taxpayers' expense is a very bad idea should they wish to progress under my command.'
Wouldn't it be great to see all riot shields dusted off and deployed like this, rather than as offensive weapons at a protest march?
Story & more pics here
Contrast that article with this one  where two children were stopped & searched by PCSOs on the grounds of 'sledging downhill'.  Their details will be kept on the police database.  These f/nuts would probably be promoted if they were under Andrew Murray's command.

UPDATE: Try the following video instead. The one above has been removed, presumably because it used the theme music from Z-Cars.

UPDATE: Bastards.  Who's censoring this?


  1. I am embarrassed to find that someone with the same name as myself and a great tennis player could be such a dick.

    Yours etc ...

    Andrew Murray

  2. No! Never! Take heart that you are now in Canada, Scunnert :-) Andy Murray may be a petulant & surly diva but we can all appreciate a good game of tennis whereas the divwit of the Thames Valley Police leaves us cold.
