Labour-Saving Device

Fougasse (Cyril Kenneth Bird) (1887-1965)

PEN AND INK

ILLUSTRATED: PUNCH 28 JULY 1954, PAGE 133

ROADS IN LEICESTERSHIRE AND RUTLAND ARE TO BE PATROLLED BY POLICEMEN IN PLAIN CLOTHES, AND NOTICES WILL BE ERECTED ANNOUNCING: 'POLICE IN PLAIN CLOTHES ARE PATROLLING THIS ROAD.' NOTHING COULD BE MORE FIRMLY IN LINE WITH THE BRITISH TRADITION OF FAIR PLAY - UNLESS THE AUTHORITIES FEEL THAT THEY COULD GO ONE BETTER AND ADMIT THAT THERE AREN'T ANY POLICEMEN, JUST THE NOTICE.
