‘Savage Police Cuts’, Anyone..?

Police were called to have a butchers at a blackboard after a member of the public found the risqué advertising messages offensive.

Leek butchers J W Ash & Son may have gone too close to the bone with their messages showcasing their ‘big breasted birds‘, ‘big cocks’ and ‘horny sausages‘.

Ho hum. But this time, the shopkeeper refused to be cowed.

Butcher Pete Lymer has been told by officers to tone down his slogans in the future, reports Stoke on Trent Live – so his latest one offers to tenderize customer’s rumps before they leave.

Heh! Good for you!

“Last month a lady from the police came in and asked if we could pull our sign in. And a bobby came in last Thursday. They’re just doing their job so I’m not annoyed with the individuals.”

Well, you should be. Because when approached, what was their response? Hint: it wasn’t to come clean.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “We’ve received no complaints about signage outside J W Ash and Son butchers in Leek.

“However, the local Chief Inspector for the Moorlands did advise the owner to give careful consideration to what was written on the boards in case anyone took offence.

No other action has been taken.”

So, shopkeeper says two visits, low rank. Official police line is…. ummm, what’s the term?

Thanks, LC!

    Is this an example of a pre-crime, a la Minority Report?
    I think the police should concentrate on doing the job they’re paid to do and stop harassing their paymasters over trivia.

    The girls in blue will defend their rights to be offended on pain of imprisonment – soon.

      This is what they were trying to do. ‘We don’t like this, someone could be offended’ so tow the line, obey and change what you say and think.

      Or else.

    I am offended by how easily offended my fellow Britons are. Such delicate blooms they are.

    How dare they send a lady from the Police to the butcher to discuss such a emotional subject, the poor Bobbyess could have fainted the Inspector who sent her must be sent for Sensitivity training pronto. Thank God? the butcher did not offer Pork sausages otherwise he may have been “Hung Drawn and Quartered”. gedd it.

    It’s funny how all cuts are ‘savage’. Let’s turn it around to ‘poverty creating high taxes required.

    All Lefties should be have a special tax assigned to them. They can call it ‘virtue tax’. THis tax will take everything they have and leave them £8 per person. They’ll suddenly start complaining that it’s unfair that they should be singled out. Well, dearies, wonder how the rest of us feel?

      Sounds good to me. All the Lefties made to live on equiv of Blair/Brown’s Gov’t JSA sort of like Cuba and rest of their income redistributed.

      They might then regret & abandon their “keep the poor, poor” ideology.
