A DISABLED CARAVANNER has been fined £40 and given a criminal record for having a SWISS ARMY KNIFE IN HIS CAR!
Full time carer Rodney Knowles kept the knife in his glove compartment of his vehicle.
The 61-year-old, who walks with the aid of a stick, was stopped by police on suspicion of drink driving - he was below the legal limit - but officers found the knife in a pouch in the car's glove box.
The retired maintenance engineer, who has no previous convictions, said: "It was in my glove box in a pouch, along with a torch, first aid kit and waterproofs. I USED IT TO CUT UP FRUIT ON PICNICS".
Have we really reached the stage in this country, where a pensioner is done for having a Swiss Army Knife in his Car? What did the THICK POLICE BASTARDS think he was going to do with it? Become a mass murderer? Slash some world famous paintings? Attack the Italian Army? Become a Terrorist? FUCK ME! It's no wonder some of us despair sometimes!
