Fair play to that man! Sparkling drills indeed!

What really set me to giggling was this:
A police source said: 'While it is always welcome when acts of bravery are successful there is always the possibility that they will go wrong and we urge people to call the police immediately to deal with these type of situations.'
I mean, like they're gonna actually turn up there toot de suet pudding, instead of a week later.

Could he be written up for a 'Queen's Commendation for Bravery'? Good drills that man.

I do hope his police statement says "They don't like it 'up em', Sir!

Fair play to him!

I'm strangely proud of the criminals though as they showed some kind of morals/values/fear of the law (yeah, right) in that they didn't put that rather heavy hammer through the old guy's skull..

Police are investigating the incident and trying to trace the two men - as well as the pensioner. He was wearing a beige raincoat with a poppy, brown trousers and carrying a bag over one shoulder.

why.......they probably want him for questioning in case he might have been an accomplice....thats usually their style....but I digress....excellent drills that man :D

They will probably be charging him with something or other, I mean imagine stopping them, he must have broken a couple of laws at least.

Why yes, Councillor Helen Lee-Parsons, Mayor of the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames could do it. If only enough people were to e-mailed her?

I think it's terrible, two young people doing their own thing and a some old guy comes up and RIPS his balaklava off his head obviously infringing on his human rights, the poor lad was so shocked at the assault that he and his friend ran from the crazed poppy weilding - probably ex special forces - pensioner. People that old should be put in homes.









Good on the old boy!

My bet is that he will be charged by the police with some offence or other.

It will help with their targets. The favourites are: assault and theft.

"Tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime". These words were uttered by some political non-entity some years ago. Nothing changed of course.

Dear xxxxxxxx,

Thank you for your email.

Do you have any name or contact details of the gentleman?

If we have these I am sure we can try to help. Going as far as the Award, this will be a decision for the Palace and not for us at York House.
We can try to point this in the right direction if we have a name and contact details.

Kind regards,

You might want to re word that bit.

I'm strangely surprised that the criminals didn't use the door that was open.

Bloody well done!!!

Would you do that at his age?

I have to be honest here; I'd like to think I would do the same as him at a similar age, but I really don't know....


He's of a generation who have different values from the norm these days. A generation that remind me of my late parents and grandparents. A generation many on arrse would like to have back.

I'm in awe of you Sir.

Humbly, Sparky.
