What a pity

Will describes him - quite accurately I should think - as a petit-bourgeois individualist dilettante. Well, I am all in favour of that sort of thing. Hazzah for Anthony Carr, vicar of Holy Trinity church in East Peckham. Carr walked into the police station in Tonbridge...

"I said to the officer 'I want to report a crime' and I took out my pipe and lit it.

"He said 'Will you please put that out as this is a no smoking area' and I said 'I will not'."

When officers told him he would not be "bundled into" the back of a van he said "what a pity".

An environmental health issue, apparently; as with so much else these days, not the business of the police.
