The endlessly inventive, witty tabloid press...

And what about that posed group pic in the Star?

Heckler & Koch man more interested in the camera than his target and Taser man looking suitably fierce - with his cock-eyed oversized helmet an' all.

Comical is the word but, hey ho, it's what the punters want to see doncha know?

Slightly off tabloid-press topic but, what about that uniformed lady police superintendent 'spokes-person' on tele last night? Anybody see that? - a very strange performance indeed. Not sure how to characterise it - a combination of facial expression, hairstyle, tone and cadence of voice I guess, but my wife burst out laughing when it came on. Monty Python could certainly have made good use of it.

The whole thing has been farcical, a wonderful example of what happens when someone threatens the police rather than the general public, with the media wholly complicit in the entire charade.

This must be the Christian values the papers are always on about. I'm reminded of this:

"No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."

did they get him?
