    So I just shot home for lunch to find my entire road and surrounding area closed off, something to do with a “firearms incident”. Rang the local nick and they won’t tell me whats going on. Aint London life great.

    Why would they?

    More like why shouldn’t they, I do live there afterall. Anyhow, for all you know I might have had people at home whom I’m worried about. A bit of info would have been reassuring thats all..I wasn’t asking for a full breakdown of events.

    The power of the little man. You see ,they have information, you don’t…Who’s in charge…They are.

    It is toss

    Because he lives there and not unreasonably wants to know what is going on there. Perhaps he’d like to know if the roads will be closed making going home difficult. He rang the police who’s job is to keep us safe, not the secret police who keep us in the dark. Who do you suggest he calls, Rupert Murdoc?

    or maybe its cause its a random phoning up trying to get what could be sensitive info. I know you’re a resident of the street, but they’ll also be getting calls from the press pretending to be residents … hence not telling you anything .. standard practice pretty much.

    They’ve given you all the info they need to: “Do not cross” and “firearms incident”.

    If you have someone in your place, tell them. Don’t exoect them to know automatically who you are and why it’s so utterly important that, in spite of the wider concerns with an incident (ongoing or being investogated) you simply must go home for your beans on toast right now.

    I’m sorry Officer Ournmaninthenorth !!

    Curiosity and a desire to understand our environment is what separates us from the police

    Where did that come from, maybe I do Nickc.

    enfht – now just be careful your ipod wires aren’t haning out of your jacket, or i shall be forced to lie on oath that you were a terrorist jumping barriers in tubestations and seeking to evade capture….

    (Seriously, you have no chance of finding out what the dibble are up to. I suggest you repair to a pub and “chillax” with a pint.)

    Mostlyharmless? what kind of a name is that?

    Did you spill my pint…etc etc etc…

    (removes jacket, hands glasses to wife)

    A damn fine name that’s been in my family for generations and much less stupid than my name on the old forum. Not noble enough for you is it.

    That’s the fist fight I’ve won since I caught John Hedges a lucky one to his ear, and he ran off to tell his mum….

    More like why shouldn’t they, I do live there afterall.

    There’s a thing known as confidentiality, just because live there doesn’t mean you have the right to know immediately what is going on. The times I hear this from people “What’s happening?” “I can’t tell you sorry” “I have the right to know I live here!” “Sorry no you don’t”

    enfht – ’twas the one down by the N Circ/Green Lanes area – written up in the local rag as the Enfield/Harringey borders – makes a change for it not to be the greeks/turks and albanians down that way trying to kill each other off (’tis nicer on the ‘posh’ side of enfield!)

    Sorry Drac dont agree mate, they could elaborate on “why” they cant tell me more, which would be fair enough, but when they assume they dont need to explain it makes me think they’re too removed from the very people they’re meant to be serving.

    Sorry Drac dont agree mate, they could elaborate on “why” they cant tell me more,

    They could but they don’t have to until they feel it necessary, safe or have permission to reveal such information.

    ssume they dont need to explain it makes me think they’re too removed from the very people they’re meant to be serving.

    They’re not assuming anything like I said there are times when information won’t be released.
