A portrait of modern Britain

Philip Clarkson Webb, retired Classics teacher.

Police confiscate a 78 year-old man's walking stick to protect "climate change" protesters from this "offensive weapon".

Go ahead and read the article if you want, but there doesn't really seem much more to say.

Oh wait, except there is one more thing:

the cops lost his stick.

When he later went to collect it from his
local police station in Southborough, Kent, with his police receipt,
he was told it had been misplaced.

It took a string of phone calls for Kent Police to finally admit
they had lost it and to offer to buy him a brand new one.
