Two hilarious headlines from yesterday:

  • Students told not to throw mortar boards due to safety risk: Celebrating students have been warned not to throw their mortar boards in the air at graduation ceremonies in case the falling headgear hurts somebody.  The move to abandon the tradition at Anglia Ruskin University was described as “health and safety gone mad” by student organisations.  The university, which has campuses at Cambridge and Chelmsford, said the action had been taken because a mortar board had injured a graduating student several years ago.  The student had to be taken to hospital for stitches after he was struck in the face. The incident is the only mortar board inflicted injury to have been recorded by the university.
  • Burberry sees profits rise while Laura Ashley suffers : A steep fall in sales at furnishings and clothing chain Laura Ashley demonstrated yesterday how tough conditions on the high street are, while luxury retailer Burberry has weathered the storm well with a 25% surge in annual profits.  The maker of the famous Burberry check shrugged off fears that luxury goods sales would be hit by the credit crisis and economic downturn. Profits jumped to £195m in the year to end March. Sales of Burberry shoes, which cost up to £495, more than doubled, and sales of luxury handbags – such as the £1,595 studded Knight bag – were also strong.

One thought on “Police called to illegal rave – to discover grannies watching Grease!”

  1. Were the Police over zealous to attend a call for help from a member of our communities? What a strange question? Did they shut the film down? No. Did they attend the call on the merit of information they were given? Very likely. So did they carry out their duty to the public? Yes. The right result all round! What a strange way to put your question across. It comes across as not thought through and as though it is trying to put Police across in a bad way, possibly to the youth who we all should be working together with to insure our societies are built well for the future. I don’t know. Perhaps it’s just my reaction to poorly presented information and questioning. Happens to us all after all!
