this news is a couple of days old, but I've been a bit busy with work and other stuff!
It seems Tony Martin was found with a scythe in his car. He was stopped for not wearing his seatbelt when police 'found' the scythe. The question I am asking myself is where was the scythe? Was it lying in full view on the back seat or was it in the boot of the car?
If you have been pulled over for not wearing your seatbelt, then you should be dealt with only for not wearing your seatbelt. It shouldn't be used as an excuse to search your car for the sake of it.
And anyway, he's a farmer! Who has a scythe! What will the charge be, intent to farm in the wrong century?
Interesting also is the BBC headline. Vigilante Farmer. Hardly a vigilante, I mean he hardly set off with a flaming torch and a gun on the hunt for the burglars. Yes, perhaps killing the burglar was a bit over the top, but branding him a vigilante is a nonsense.
