Open up, I’m from the Ginger Protection League

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

A man in Perthshire has been jailed for assaulting a police officer, singing Spider Pig at them and calling another one “ginger”.

Best go through all those posts and find the references to ginger strawberry blonde people before the anti-terrorist squad come knocking on the door.  Is there anything that can’t be used as “aggravation” in a crime nowadays?  Racially-motivated, gender-motivated, disability-motivated, ginger strawberry blonde motivated.  When will it stop?

Hat-tip: Axel in the comments on this post.

    I wonder – is it actually illegal to sing at a police officer?

    You got my message then Gin … Strawberry Blonde?

    James, last time I checked it wasn’t illegal to sing at an hofficer of the law but I really wouldn’t be surprised if it was now.

    Wonko why are you reporting foreign news?

    Got to have a bit of foreign news from time to time Gruff, if only to remind yourself that there are less civilised people in the world than the baseball-capped scutters that hang around outside the local off-licence.

    … there are no border controls between us and you, so expect hordes of smelly refugees, bag piping at you, urinating in your bus shelters and swearing at post boxes
