Doing the right thing

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Lancashire Police are providing protection for  a wild flower amid fears it will be dug up & stolen when it blooms in the next few weeks.

The Cypripedium calceolus, a rare orchid otherwise known as Lady’s Slipper is growing on a golf course on the north of England & can fetch up to £5,000 when in bloom.

Some people are criticising the use of police resources to protect ‘just some flower’. Personally, I’d far rather we spent money on protecting such an equisite & rare flower than some of the more general shite we have to do day in & day out.
