Seeing Red

A 'snippet' article in the print edition of today's Daily Telegraph:

"Phillip Lilley, 36, of Droylsden, Greater Manchester, was fined for driving a yard through a red light to allow an emergency police van to pass."

And if he hadn't, no doubt the poor bugger would have been fined for 'obstruction of a police vehicle'!

Oh well, one supposes it helped Greater Manchester Police tick another 'crime solved' box in their 'stat returns'!

This incident is the type of thing which goes on day after day and we never protest. The stupidity will only stop when the people say NO.
