Translation: You Can Get A Job With Amazon By Giving False Details

Home CCTV footage appeared to show an Amazon delivery driver stealing a sink worth £350 from the front garden of Mark Thomas’ parents’ home in December.

Mr Thomas reported the incident to the police, who were given the driver’s name by Amazon in addition to the seemingly incriminating footage.

To his shock, Mr Thomas received a letter this month informing him that the case had been closed as the “details provided by Amazon are not enough to identify a suspect.”

Hmmm, how so?

Surrey police said:
“While we have been provided with details of the courier used by Amazon, we were unable to identify the individual responsible through extensive enquiries into the name and details that the courier provided to Amazon.

“The case has therefore been closed pending further proportionate lines of enquiry.”

There’s only one way to read that, isn’t there?

One wonders, though, how Amazon paid him. Shouldn’t the police liaise with their fellow public servants and find out?

    The idea of one branch of government talking to another is not only comical, but downright mindbending. That sort of consideration and common sense is beyond the state.

    Simple things like births, marriages and deaths talking to the welfare system, to HMRC to the NHS to the police is a giant cosmic joke. Government is deliberately inept and unwilling to approach such a sensible suggestion.

      I’ve seen this at firsthand and in my case, I was surprised on whose computer screens it came up, although in my case it worked for me, not against. But still … worrying in principle.

      And any such grand plans, when they do make them, are doomed to failure.
