Oh for Fox Sake! (2008)
written by thestation-sergeants-blog on the 28th October 2012 at 11:51

  • The award for Politically Correct Imbecility of the Week goes to Northamptonshire Police for their investigation into alleged racist comments by Basil Brush.  Yes, it’s true.  Basil made a gag in 2002 that a fortune teller stole his wallet.  This has been repeated eight times on television and appeared on the Basil Brush DVD.  Now it has been deemed to be offensive to the Traveling Community so is being investigated as a hate crime by Northants officers who clearly have nothing more urgent to occupy their time.  Such incidents detract from the importance of investigating real hate crimes.  Has it come to this, that real police officers are so anxious to please the Government that they are investigating the comments of a glove puppet?  And in any case, if New Labour hates foxes so much, why has it banned hunting?
