Last year for the first time the local supermarket started tagging roasting joints, which at the time I found extraordinary. Well, it seems meat theft has reached endemic proportions; everything now bar mince and sausages now bears a security tag that must be de-activated at the till. Including the £1.47 chop for last night's supper.
And overnight the parking meter some ten metres from my front door was 'done'. And I didn't hear a thing. Oh well, off to the station. And just hope they haven't stolen the copper signal cables again this morning.
