...absolutely, plonker, if I see anyone hit Charlie's car on the North Pier, causing extensive damage, even if I know the perpetrator, he can rest assured I will just give the chap a friendly wave and let him drive away... I won't report it, as I don't want to be labelled a sad 'grass', he wouldn't appreciate that at all.... would you Charlie? According to your rules, that is. Your criticism is of people who feel they should do the right thing and tell the authorities if they believe someone is breaking the law, rather than the people who are actually engaged in an illegal activity, is a most bizarre way of thinking. All these 'grass' references do make me chuckle. Where are we, is some sort of London ghetto or an episode of the Sweeney, where small time crooks are being encouraged to go to the cops and 'grass up' the big time crooks? The playground, perhaps, where 'tattle tails' are persona non grata with the cool kids? No, we're in a small island which is already over populated as it is, and the authorities are encouraging people to make them aware of anyone who's blatantly breaking the rules that the rest of us bend over backwards to abide by. What on earth is wrong with that?
