From the Herald‘s report about the robbery of almost £600,000 worth of jewelery and watches from Hamilton & Inches in George Street, Edinburgh, last year, comes this dreadful allegation:

number plates

I mean, if you are going to drive a stolen car, be man enough to do it without number plates!

I mean, if he had done it in Glasgow, at least it wouldn’t have been a capital offence…
