Stupid quote of the month: July
Norfolk police have announced they will supply Muslim detainees with compasses to allow them to face Mecca when praying – unless considered at risk of self-harm. Here’s TPA chief executive Matthew Elliot’s reaction:
“These people may be criminals and should be treated as such.
“The fact that law-abiding taxpayers are having to pay for these compasses, and that staff are having to waste time carrying out risk assessments, is ludicrous.
“Behaviour like this leaves right-minded people questioning the priorities of the police.”
So how much does each compass cost?
