Fitted up by the Sweeney?

It just seems very draconian for a tradesman that’s all. It just sounds like they were out to get him for something when they didn’t have enough evidence to get him for another crime they thought he was guilty of that’s all. I bet he regrets telling them he had accidentally left a knife in his pants. 

Is there enough detail in the press report to give anyone the ability to form any opinion as to what actually happened ?

Is there any reason to believe the press have exclusive access to information about something that happened?

No, but I think a lot of people believe the truth sayers on Facebook and are blurring the line between fiction and reality.

If it's who i think it is the guy is a scaffolder (or certainly was, not seen him for a couple of years) and having a knife is really useful for all the cable ties that they use for the netting. Can see why he'd have one in his pocket.

teapot character reference........

I carry a very sharp pen on me at all times. A good thrust to the neck would, I imagine, incapacitate anybody attacking me.

just punch in the throat......no need for a pen.......

I’d have thought a Stanley knife would be easier, quicker and safer to use on cable ties. Legal too. 

Why would a lock knife with a blade over 3 inches be suitable ?

Stanley blades snap, cable ties can be remarkably tough. If I was cutting a whole pile of them off a big scaffold job I'd want something a bit more robust than a stanley. I'm not defending the guy, again just pointing out his story on the face of it is feasible.

And Woody can't read.

Going back to the original Sweeney reference...I can't stop smiling at the muppet wpc in the Joey Barton clip on Sky.

Barton is just a common thug and should have no place in football

I think you misunderstood when someone told you the pen is mightier than the sword.

True, watching pirates trade blows with pens just lacks the excitement

No is the simple answer. I dare say we’ll wait a very long time for that rag to publish all the details.

Hang on are you of the thinking that he was charged went to court probably a few weeks later had the charges dropped then the police went out and thought well he had a knife at the time knife crime isn't really issue so let's just leave it on the off chance he gets off with drink driving and we can stick it on him then. Wow.
