Plods Antipodean Antisocial Proposal
Police in a town once branded Scotland's "toughest" are to build a cabin-style "modular custody suite" in its car park to deal with a surplus of offenders at weekends.
I have been advocating for some time that Plod uses shipping containers for drunks. Cut a few holes for ventilation, add some bars to split up the inside, drop them off in the Market Place for Saturday night and when the trouble makers have sobered up in the morning just rinse it out. Simple, cheap and effective, but it seems my plan would fall foul of Human Rights and so instead of my couple of thousand pound idea they are going to spend £750,000 for a ten cell block. £75,000 a berth!
