With such distinctive and identifiable features, hopefully this piece of pond-life will be enjoying Christmas at her majesty's pleasure. But not much chance, these days punishment is usually a community order, or some other slap on the wrist.
I was burgled three years ago, and the trauma still lives on, so in my book house burglars = total scum. Keep a baseball bat handy.
And don't believe plod's burglary statistics, these are continually massged downwards, even though the anecdotal evidence in Kingston is overwhelmingly towards an increase in its incidence.
