    The traffic police love good chase! If your car is better than they can afford personally you are in deep trouble.

      The police used to enjoy a good chase, especially the motorcycle police. The more enlightened officers would point out how you could improve your riding style, road positioning and so forth. The worst you could usually expect was a good 'finger wagging' at the roadside in view of your friends but it all seems to be about targets and quotas now.

        Yes, I have noticed that. I think it is the Paxo effect where interviewers seem to think they are cross examining interviewees, often whilst trying to put their own views across.

        Radio 3 is good though if you pick the right time.

                  Regarding 'toe rags' and 'disruptive pupils' we used to have 'Approved Schools' and 'Borstals', didn't we ?


                  What happened to them ?


                  I remember an 'Approved School' near where I lived and our school a football match against theirs. They came from all over the country, none were local.

                    I think they closed years ago, with those involved 'integrated' into mainstream education. There are still a number of Young Offenders Institutions but you only get sent to one of those if remanded or on the orders of a court.

                    Borstals and 'approved schools' were effectively boarding schools for naughty boys, but I think students were allowed some freedom so it would make sense for them to be located well away from home. I also suspect that in many cases 'home' was the problem.

                      If you have money then you will be fined; if you have a job or a family life then you will be jailed; if you have neither then these are not punishments but an infringment of your personal welfare and will not stop you re-offending anyway. Thats how it works I think.
