The very observant Pc

I am indebted to Red Mist for this reference to an article from the Express & Star newspaper about a blind man who had been banned from driving for three years. I like the bit where the prosecuting solicitor Peter Love asked Pc Glyn Austin, one of two officers who pulled Aziz over, if he had noticed anything about the driver. Pc Austin replied: “I did - he didn’t have any eyes, Your Worships.” I also agree that the comments of former Leader of Sandwell Conservative Group, Karen Bissell, could be construed as meaning the fragrant Karen didn't think the poor chap should be banned at all. I'm sure she didn't mean that... but the phrase about beggars in respect of this particular gentleman could have been better chosen.
