Haslemere Councillor Jim Edwards is most upset that the town is to lose its policeman. Well Councillor Edwards – join the club – because plods are now in short supply around the borough, and that’s before the planned cuts.
Councillor Edwards told his colleagues at a meeting of the Overview & Scrutiny Committee that it was:
“beyond the bone”
for the town’s police officer to be withdrawn.
Fear not Councillor Edwards perhaps WBC could release your Leader – Bobby Know-less and put him back on the beat as he may well soon be looking for a new job! Perhaps not – when he was on the plod…his nickname was:
“THE OLYMPIC TORCH” – Why – because he never went out!
