The name Kevin is now illegal. Why not use Alan instead? It suits you.

A drunk Brian Blessed is waving his fist and shouting "BALLS TO YOUR KIND" at disinterested ducks. Officers dispatched with large net.
Are you absolutely sure this isn't real?

Southerners drinking shandy, then going for a 'knees-up' followed by 'eels and liquor' or whatever it is that passes for culture in the Great Wen.

This is bloody hilarious. How long until the actual Met shuts them down, d'you think?

As on previous weekends, our main focus this evening is to try to retrieve several thousand stolen Ikea pencils.

Great Lord Cthulhu, destroyer of mankind, has arisen from his watery repose and is currently causing a minor traffic incident in Enfield.

Worth pointing out that this joke account was set up in direct response to this and subsequent Tweets from the official Twitter account of CO11, the public order branch of the Metropolitan Police. The tone didn't go down too well.

Remember when The Hoff solved that mysterious string of murders linked to the ghost of Jack the Ripper trapped in the London Bridge in Arizona? Hoff saved the day.

To help test our defenses against alien invasion Met officers are walking around with truncheons under their arms pretending to be Daleks.

OK, this is funny.

Aw, you mean there really isn't a "Wimbledon: Man in yellow T-shirt standing on wooden stilts pretending to be the sun. Officers with protective eye-wear investigating"? There should be.

"Individuals seeking to disrupt the 2 minute silence will be dealt with robustly #Armistice Day #remember"

"Any police action will be considered & proportionate, respecting those who hold the 2 min silence as a sign of respect #Armistice #remember"

"If the memory of dead soldiers is insulted where people have gathered to honour those soldiers there is clearly a threat to public order."

"Deliberately using abusive or insulting words or behaviour is an offence under Section 4 of the Public Order Act #Armistice Day #remember"
Wow. Small wonder Orwell was British.

Earlier reports of a suspicious death in Wood Green have now been downgraded to "someone having a nap". Classic stuff!

In response to the ongoing CCTV outage in the Holborn area we have now deployed a small team of barn owls with notepads.


Related cases, perhaps?

If the feed is taken down, there should really be reenactments so that the once-fake incidents show up on the real feed. #occupylondonbridge

I suspect that is aimed at Muslims Against Crusades, who strike me as a UK Islamic version of Westboro Baptist Church (hatefull trolls, basically). [That said, I prefer the US response to W'boro to the UK response to MAC]

New pilot scheme starts today. All hate crimes will now be immediately dealt with by a firm shake of the hand.

Heh. Oh hai, Sepp Blatter.
