Brits encouraged to turn in their bourgeois neighbors for having too much “bling”

By Tracy R Twyman

In the latest example of innovative policing in Britain, the Gloucestershire force is encouraging members of the public to report people wearing too much ‘bling’ during the recession.

They are also urging people to [report] anyone who drives flashy cars or buys expensive items without the apparent means to afford them during the credit crunch.

The campaign, run with Crimestoppers, was launched by the force today under the title ‘Too Much Bling? Give Us a Ring’ with the aim of cracking down on those who live a lavish lifestyle on the profits of crime

Gloucestershire’s Chief constable Dr Timothy Brain said: ‘In the current time of financial uncertainty, those who live a lavish lifestyle with no discernable, legitimate income become even more apparent.

Tory MP and former Home Secretary Ann Widdecombe asks the obvious:

“How are you meant to judge if someone buying a piece of jewellery can afford it?”

But of course, they have their own motivations for doing this. Quite simply, they want to take your stuff!

Under the Proceeds of Crime Act, last year Gloucestershire Constabulary, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts confiscated nearly £1.8million from convicted criminals and removed £1.4million in ill-gotten gains.

These bureaucrats are suspected of having a budget that's entirely too bloated and of using their police powers to steal the property of others
