Ahem. Can I repost a blog post from some time ago?
This Sun story about a student receiving an £80 FPN for making a snow , er, scupture. Offence details entered by PC Wiley are 'MADE A 4 FOT (sic) HIGH PHALIC (sic) SYMBOL OUT OF SNOW ON PARKER'S PIECE'
'disgruntled commuter' comments on The Magistrate's Blog that
'Phalic' should have two 'l's. As perhaps should PC Wiley.
There's nothing to add to that.
