PET SHOP OWNER LEFT TRAUMATISED, FINED AND TAGGED!


The woman who has owned the above PET SHOP in Manchester has just been FINED £1000 and HAS BEEN ELECTRONICALLY TAGGED for two months.
Her son of 47 has been ordered to do 120 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE.
THEIR HEINOUS CRIME?  To unwittingly sell a goldfish to a 14-year-old boy taking part in a trading standards 'sting'.  At most, pet shop owner Joan Higgins, 66, expected a slap on the wrist for breaking new animal welfare laws which ban the sale of pets to under-16s.  

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO?  ALL THAT, FOR A FISH?

The 'stingers' have to substantiate their salaries DL. Surely you know that.

This is what this country has come to though. What a tragedy.

She should have killed it, battered it, and deep fried it - then sold it to the kid.

The UK has gone completely gaga.

It's the curfew that I don't understand. I thought it was to keep violent thugs off the street at night; mind you, as a granny I don't suppose she does much roaming around after 8pm anyway.

Bring back the good old days says I, the last goldfish I got was from shooting something with a GUN at the funfair, named it after a schoolmate and it lived for 2 or 3 years thanks to my teen tlc.

Rosie, It's absolutely incredible. The lunaticts have taken over the asylum!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Scunnert, can you get me in over there? There has to be plenty of room.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Goldie, you're right. But now you've been adopted and are going to a private school your life will be so much better. Mind you, you still won't be able to remember anything longer than three seconds.

Banned, welcome back, I missed your comments. I hope everything went ok. I've read through the story and I don't understand the tagging either. Do they think she might be 'pushing' goldfish in the same way as others push drugs and they are trying to keep her off the streets?

INCOMING!!!!!!! said...

DL what was that programme called again...ah yes Beadle's About. Life is being deliberatly turned into a dangerous game of Candid Camera. It's just like the cops sauntering into your gaff and leaving you a note saying shut the fukkin' door. Or school kids getting a simulated Chechen hit on the school office, without warning, and then big smiles all round as the CP Graduates congratulate themselves on a great excercise well executed even though the mangled corpses littering the school yard have traumatised the children for life.

If you peer very closely at ALL those involved in this kind of crap you see that they actually do nothing, quite literally nothing. That's the gig. Just like the fools watching everything we type.

INCOMING!!!!!! It is frightening just how quickly this country has gone to the dogs over the last 13 years. The worst thing to is the way it kind of creeps up on you, insidiuously winding it's way into the fabric of society. The problem with the Tory fool is that he is a product of the last 13 years ans so accepts it as being the norm. Are there enough of us left to tell them where they are going wrong? I don't know and to some extent don't care. I wish I was American and I could become a survivalist in fucking Utah or somewhere.

Every day it seems things get worse and worse.Just when you think you've heard it all,you put on the news in the morning,and another unbelievable thing has happened.Sometimes it seems these things are done by intention.To totally demoralise people.If that's true,then its worked with me,because I'm FUCKING FED UP of this bollocks country.I don't see it ever getting any better.Just more monitoring,more demoralisation,more tax's,more immigration..fuck it,the list is endless,I can't be arsed and I'm making a cocktail of prozac,diazipam and liquid morphine for after the election.It makes no difference WHO gets in.They're all wank,and nothing will change
