The Love Police Matrix Hacking Squad and rhubarb


Yes (see post title) that's what they are really called. With Hat Tip to Charon QC/Old Holborn, here we have the insolence of office and ignorance of law in perfect synchronicity. Enjoy. They don't like it up 'em...



Plus, the rabbit is delighted to reveal that forced rhubarb has been given official European Union status! Forced rhubab is grown by traditional (and labour intensive) methods in intense heat by candlelit sheds in the 'rhubarb triangle' of Leeds/Bradford/Wakefield. Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb has been granted 'protected designation of origin' status from the European Commission. This calls for a quick Hallelujah Chorus....

This puts forced rhubarb up there with Champagne, Parmesan cheese and - erm - Cornish clotted cream as well as a pile of other stuff. The EU - you gotta love it. What other body would come up with gems like that? From hence, the rabbit will fly the EU flag from the sidebar.

Great news about Yorkshire Rhubarb.
Sainsbury's rhubarb yoghurt claims to contain Timperley Rhubarb.
Timperley is a rather posh village near Altrincham - now they wouldn't force it would they?

Fantastic blog! Very heartfelt and personal…

I’m anthropologist currently doing a little study on the blogging culture, and your blog has a special interest for me. If you don’t mind dropping by my site and maybe participating in the study by answering 5 questions I’d be more that grateful.

If for nothing else, drop by the blog just to take a look...

Cheers~

Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen's version was much better. Trust some git like Handel to rip him off!

As for the film, loved the way that the plod seem to like inventing new laws on the spot to deal with members of the public. Love it when such tactics backfire!

While I am here, can I ask that people visit Old Holborn at his blog as he has a fighting fund setup to help jailed pub landlord Nick Hogan. Read all about it here
