And where exactly in the 'report' above does it state that Sherlock?

What a scant regard you have for other people's lives. What? you might be held up for a few minutes whilst they try to save the life of a person in dire trouble? How dare they!
I don't know if you have a family, or if you are just a lonely person, but if you do, try to imagine your feelings if say, your daughter or wife were to be the one in that car. How would you react to the type of comment you have made?
Perhaps you should pop to the local psychiatric unit for a little anger management. Methinks it would do you the world of good!

You think so? for what exactly? Upsetting a fake mourner?

Unless I'm mistaken, no one has died at this incident yet the grief machine has been put into full motion.

Here, get one of these..........

A BRITISH inventor has developed an all-in-one council estate tragedy
shrine that can be erected within seconds of something ‘sad’ happening.



Sympathise with strangers using wax and tin
The Portagrief weighs just two kilograms and comes pre-loaded with decaying tulips, a poorly-composed sympathy poem and a tatty-looking teddy bear.

Inventor, Martin Bishop, said: “Within moments of something happening to somebody you’ve never met, you can share your fake sadness with friends, neighbours and the audience of Sky News.

“It’s the indispensable item for the childish, mal-educated grief-vampire who wants to appear really upset in as public a way as possible.”

The Portagrief will be offered in three basic models – the Executed Gangsta, the Teenage Traffic Accident and the Little Angel, which will include a card with the message ‘yoos in hevin now’.

Bishop added: “I was watching a Sky News reporter standing outside some council estate ****-igloo and the question suddenly occurred to me – where would the average ghoul in the street get their hands on an elaborate tea light holder at four o’clock in the morning?”

Nikki Hollis, a grade six untermensch from Carlisle, said: “When that toddler went missing from down the road, I had my Portagrief Little Angel outside the family’s door before the police had turned up.

“Unfortunately they found her the next day so she’s not in hevin, which is a shame for her.”

Just because you couldn't give a toss about anyone but yourself, that does not mean that those that do are any less of a person than you are. You may one day get the chance to prove you are more than a moron but posting in the local paper about how much you don't care proves nothing, except you are just the type we need to represent us in the next war. Stop bleating about your lost seconds, put your name down to join the Royal marines, then return here and tell us some of your manly exploits. We will be amazed at your bravery, especially the bits where you go back under fire for your wounded comrades!

I wasn't there and neither were you.

Not sure I made a comment about the victim, my point was about the over reaction to it.

A bit like your over reaction to everything I've written - histrionic.

Shall I tell you about the Falklands? Will that do?

Yes, wholly irrelevant - a bit like you oh offended one.

How did you know? I might have been.
No I am not offended, but people who are family and friends are all too often upset by mindless people who seemingly care more about the traffic delays than the possibility of the grief that other people suffer as a result of the incident. You are regular on here and you know what I am talking about. Call it HPD, call it what you will, but I try to interject when People are injured or worse, to show that people do care, when I can.
As for why the Police now get the forensic kit out and bring in the helicopter, that you know is down to, for the most part,the demands of our wondrous teams of solicitors, who have done for justice round about the same as Attila the Hun. Kill 'em first , then look and see whose side they were on.. But, I did at least make you think a bit, that you needed to really grind me into the dirt here! :)

'someone was taken ill' that's all you and I know I'd suspect. Still, as long as you get to wear your heart on your sleeve and display your faux empathy, good for you.

Whatever floats your boat.

Meanwhile, I'll comment whenever I see a total over reaction to an ordinarily mundane, day to day occurance.

No wonder they claim they're skint. EVERY ambulance that passes where I live on its way to an emergancy (two crew on board) has been preceeded a few minutes earlier by a paramedic in a car.

Talk about belt & braces nonsense.

Now your going to start on me with my heart on my sleeve. The paramedic car is usually the first responder and gets to the patient as fast as possible. With only four minutes of oxygen life in a non-breathing person, this has saved life over and over again. I live in Basildon, a couple of hundred yards from the emergency services and I can tell you, the time between a paramedic car and an ambulance is sometimes well past the brain-dead time. But if the first responder gets there and gets the patient breathing, or stops the blood pumping out of the body, then the ambulance can take the patient to the hospital whilst the car can be available and away to the next emergency when it occurs. But, if you want to use French words for fake then that's your choice. I tried to cross the bridge back but you are a stalwart right of right and always right so But I must ask, being as you were as near to this emergency as I was, you made your judgement on "Person taken ill" so how in hell did you know the road was not covered in the result of an Aneurysm. When I was a first responder (Part time) I experienced that first hand. Most people would not have wanted to see that if it bled externally. If someone had a sudden bad headache I doubt they would have closed the road so perhaps they are not just out to see how much of a hold up they can cause, or whatever leads you to the conclusion they are over reacting.

Oh, and from the picture, it looks like they have created a diversion round Gibcracks ( about a further 100 yard journey, minus rubber necking time) so you could have still got home in time for pointless or whatever.

Oh dear. Someone was taken ill. Maybe they threw up. That is all we know (AFAIAA)

Aneurism? It wasn't though was it?

The ambulance was there dealing with the patient. Plod, closed the road??

Two Police cars, they could have easily had a copper at each end controlling traffic. But they didn't, they closed it. As usual, an you have missed my point by a country mile.

BTW I've probably attended more 'emergency situations' than you've had hot dinners. As a 'first responder' as you call it. (Full time)

Aneurism? It wasn't though was it?

The ambulance was there dealing with the patient. Plod, closed the road??

Two Police cars, they could have easily had a copper at each end controlling traffic. But they didn't, they closed it. As usual, an you have missed my point by a country mile.

BTW I've probably attended more 'emergency situations' than you've had hot dinners. As a 'first responder' as you call it. (Full time)
AFAIAA says nothing though does it? Because you don't know, you say what you like. I say discretion should be used, at least until we know what the emergency was. What they could have done depended on what the heads (Especially the new right-wing Political head) decided they want the front-liners to do. Take your complaints up with them by all means. No, I haven't missed your point by any measure. I don't call them "First responders", that's the latest fad. As for emergency situations, you don't have an idea at all what I did or didn't do. So all that proves is you are a gambler first.
But you said about the overkill of two emergency medical vehicles not being needed and now say the same about the two police cars. You forget, I suppose, that when there were two patrolmen to a car, there would have been two officers there, but with the local cars (which you can see the nearest on clearly is) they only have one. So, how would that one car put an officer at each end? So without all your not so subtle innuendos and your own supposed emergency situations, when my sister fell down my stairs they sent a Paramedic ambulance. No "First response" so no overkill. Are you getting that point now? They knew it wasn't life threatening injury.
My "First response" BTW was as a first aider on an industrial site. No big deal, I rushed to answer site emergency calls, did what I was trained to do then, if required, we "The team" passed the patient into the care of the Ambulance brigade. I never claimed different, that was what we did and "First aider" was what I was called. Definitely part-time! Voluntary and token annual payment. But, Emergency situations other than medical I might surprise you. I was also a part-time fireman. But don't insult me regarding whether I care, or only pretend to, you have no idea and I am afraid that reflects as purely insulting. I at least told you why I raised the point with you. Someone who considers others are "Faux," someone who couldn't give a toss about others is the good guy? I don't think so. Far more likely to be a fabled politician, I'm afraid!

Feel better for that? Good. Now breath.

By the way, following a shooting of ONE person in Shenfield last week, they sent SEVERAL ambulances.

They closed the railway station - the incident was in the car park several hundred yards away.

And a good Sunday to you too. I hope you had a good breakfast and now feel ready to face the working week.
I will keep my fingers crossed that you don't get any hold-ups on the way to your place of work. If you are a working person and not retired of course.
Oh, and by the way, I dialled 999 a couple of years ago when I caught a young man breaking the side window of a car to ransack the glovebox. Whilst waiting for the police, he managed to skate (On his bike) off from me. However, I'll expect them any day now! Was that few enough for you? (That was at the bottom of The Gore in Basildon, where you would expect to see even the helicopter, so you would have been happy that they didn't over staff that job!)
