A report in the local paper tells us that a young man of 19 appeared in Furness magistrate’s court and pleaded guilty to carrying an offensive weapon. It also tells us TWICE that he hails from Egerton Court (pictured) which by any stretch of the imagination can't be mistaken for luxury penthouses.
The report also gives us the information that he appeared in court wearing a tracksuit and trainers. The reporter might as well have said that the offender was a chav from a slum.
If the guy was from one of our more leafy suburbs, would we have been told that he appeared wearing a suit, tie and shiny shoes, I think not somehow!
