Firstly we learn that owning knives in Hampshire is wrong. Or maybe it isn’t; but the police only seem interested in gathering them anyway. Then we discover that the police are targeting signs that others find offensive. I’m not convinced this is a good use of my tax money.
But accordingly, I would like to politely request that Hampshire Police remove the following signs across the county, which I find offensive:
‘Please wash before exiting rest room’ (the facilities in my office)
‘Baby on board’ (still seen on the occasional car)
‘Defacing council property will result in the police being called’ (Job Centre, Winchester)
‘We will not sell Eggs or Flour to under-18s’ (seen in Sainsbury’s, see attached photo)
I hope Hampshire police get cracking with this; there’s nothing like a muted, inoffensive society to inspire us to greater wealth and knowledge.
Anyway, enough frothing at the mouth - I’m beginning to sound like The Devil’s Kitchen, with a little less of the adult language. Time for a Valium, perhaps.
