Police: Jewellery ripped from elderly woman’s fingers – Tameside

Written by RSS Poster Crime & Justice - UK Crime News

An 84-year-old woman had her Asian jewellery ripped from her fingers during an aggravated burglary in Tameside.

At around 10pm on Thursday 17 April 2014, three offenders climbed through an open window of a house on Oldham Road, Ashton-under-Lyne and made their way into the living room where the woman was sat.

One of them put his hand over her mouth while the others pulled jewellery from her fingers, wrists and neck before leaving.

Detective Sergeant Michelle Lomas said: “As well as suffering significant bruising, she has been left mentally scarred by what happened. The offenders have been aggressive and not cared she was elderly. In fact, we believe she was targeted due to her vulnerability.

“Unfortunately, the only description we have of the offenders is they were male, wore black balaclavas and black gloves. I would ask anyone who may have seen something suspicious or who may have been offered a ring, bracelet and necklace under suspicious circumstances, to phone police.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 9311 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Police: Let’s call time on French‑bashing

Written by RSS Poster Surrey Constabulary Blog

There is no truth to the story about a law banning work emails after 6pm, but that didn’t stop media hysteria.

The French are angry. Usually, they ignore what the perfidious British write about them. This time they are very angry. According to an absurd story going viral on the internet, French office workers have been given a legal right to ignore work emails and phone calls after 6pm.

Clock off: France has had a 35‑hour working week since 1999

Clock off: France has had a 35‑hour working week since 1999

There is no truth – not even much suspicion of truth – in this story. It began with a column in The Guardian, whose author has since admitted that she made a mistake. It was taken up, with further embellishments, insulting commentary and no fact-checking, by the Daily Mail. It has since spread rapidly online.

The Mail wrote: “Workers in Socialist France can now ignore telephone calls and emails from their bosses when they are at home. It is all part of a new legal agreement which confirms President François Hollande’s country as arguably...

Military: You know your Argentine when

1. 1765 is after 1830

2.UN Human Rights laws do not apply to Argentina

3. Don't question your government if you like what they say.

4. Senior Statemen will openly release statements that show a level of diplomatic immaturity that would make Mugabe blush.

5. Creating Signs and monuments to a non existent place called Narnia , oops I meant Malvinas.

6. When your inflation rate reaches at least 40 % and your Financial Minister doesn't know basic economics and storms out of a press conference, you start burning British Flags and start calling all Brits Piratas.

7. You worship someone called Cohen who is supposed to be an expert of international law but has no idea of what Uti Posseditis means.

8. You claim other nations are Usurpers but your whole history is based on invasion and occupation.

9. You claim 3000 people are not entitled to live in there own homes but state with no sense of Irony you would do whatever you had to do to defend the motherland.
