Oh, nice one Nutty!

A Poppy for all those carrier pigeons that didnít make it back to the loft, and have no known nesting place. :ok:

I assume/hope RBL is aware?

There was a great story/video I saw a couple of days ago. Some guy mugged a poppy seller and ran straight into the loving arms of a group of older bikers who performed a citizens arrest until the police arrived. Wish I had the link because the look on the guy's face whilst in an armlock by this big hairy biker was priceless.

That could have been the one in Stafford. It seems that the only way that his body wasn't re-arranged more thoroughly was that the bikers were aware that they were under CCTV coverage.

The Twitter footage of two low life stealing the Poppy collection pot however, is a despicable act.

Well done, Oxleathers MCC!



A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We'd like to update our local community regarding an incident that took place in Stafford town centre whereby an attempted theft was witnessed by members of the public who intervened.

"Steven Norman, 43, was charged with attempted theft and remanded in police custody. He appeared at magistrates court on Monday morning.

"We're grateful to all who assisted with the investigation. "

Norman, of Friars Terrace in Stafford, was fined £250 after pleading guilty to attempted theft.

Thanks, Beagle, that's the one.

Shame the little poppy thieving scrote's neck didn't accidentally snap. £250? He'll be at it again before you can blink.

I'm not referring to the pigeon....
