You’ll be glad to know that fat sweaty coppers from the Politically Correct Thought Police are keeping you safe in your homes by operating a zero tolerance policy against little girls.
And why not, the Labour Prime Minister who ushered in the Politically Correct Thought Police reign of terror promised to be tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime. Well crimes are committed by adults and children grow up to be adults so it makes sense to crack down on childhood games and make sure the kinds are well intimidated.
Or so it might seem to parents in Kent.
Officers of Kent finest (who said a bunch of Kents, come on, let’s have some resprect for the men and women who harrass our children) reportedly reprimanded Lilly Allen, 10, earlier this week for drawing a hopscotch grid on the pavement on the pavement near her home.
The traditional games outline she drew was akin to criminal damage.
The schoolgirl was said to have been given the warning by two unnamed coppers officers as she played the centuries-old game.
Lilly was issued the warning after making the outlines in white chalk, which washes away in rain. Drawing on the pavement is criminal damage, two plods in a patrol car told her.
Lilly’s dad, Robert Allen, 51 has lodged a formal complaint to Kent Police over the incident, which occurred on Monday. He told reporters Two policemen in a car drove up to her and said it was illegal to draw on the floor as it was criminal damage. I am absolutely seething.”
After posting a picture of the grid on his Facebook page, the pub entertainer joked: I call her Banksy now.
Scores of his friends commented on the posting, labelling the police comments as ridiculous.

It is understood that police were today trying to establish which officers may have spoken to the girl.
We cannot currently trace any car being in the area at the time, a police source said; (well they would, wouldn’t they?) full story
The police action might not be as ridiculous as it first seems. While the coppers are busy harassing little girls they can’t be sent off to chase real crims who might have guns and knives and baseball bats with nails through the end.
Boggart Blog legal expert A Cheever Loophole said, “You could say drawing on the pavement is defacing public property by the offence would be had to prosecute as the evidence would be washed away by raid before the case came to court.
