Police in Manchester have been publicising a big clampdown on parking, whereby they have actually been towing vehicles away.
All well and good. Illegal parking is a bloody nuisance at the best of times.
However, I must have missed the announcement of a similar clampdown on burglars, muggers and rapists in Manchester. You see, Manchester is one of the most crime ridden cities in England, and police resources are at an all time low thanks to government cuts. So I cannot imagine the police in Manchester would focus on such trivial, minor crimes while ignoring much more serious stuff, can you?
