Break the Law – Take the consequence

There have been vehicle(s) ‘parked’ on Station Road for some considerable time, untaxed, and No MOT, at least 8 people have reported these vehicles to the DVLA (they are not abandoned – as the owner is known to the authorities – It is not a Police matter as they are not been seen driving on the highway).
A number of Councillors and Fenland’s Street Scene Officer have reported these persistent vehicle(s) and complaints lodged with the DVLA about none-enforcement.

Some may argue the perpretator is doing no harm – sorry the rest of us have to abide by the law of the land, the road and corner is being blocked and for months (year or more) the road can not be swept and is becoming a mess…..

Yesterday action was seen to take place…. (Click on picture to enlarge)

What is A Sockpuppet !!!!!!

From Cambs Policing…..

Today, I listened to a radio article that referred to a Sockpuppet, I had no idea what it was until then. So, I thought I would just pass it on to you all unless you all knew already and it was just me behind the times.


A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term, a reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sock, originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an Internet community who spoke to, or about, themselves while pretending to be another person.[1]

The term now includes other misleading uses of online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a person or organization,[2] to manipulate public opinion,[3] or to circumvent a suspension or ban from a website. A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym[4] and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the main account operator.
Sockpuppets are unwelcome in many online communities and forums.
