Fly on the wall TV programme this morning.

Leave a laptop on a bench in a park on a bench, and see what happens !

First two people that find it ring the police to report it there. The policeman seems gutted by this , 

Seems the idea is to find who takes it home , then raid the home and arrest them for stealing.

is it a case of finders keepers , not a hardened criminal at work??   

Opinions please ....

All seems a bit off hand to me , come on police, you can do better than this !

Didn't anyone sit down on the bench and log in to the WHF? forums to comment on active speakers?

Didn't anyone open it to see if it belonged to a Government minister? (The usual reason for discarded laptops in public places.)

Didn't anyone realise that the biggest crime being perpetrated was by the programme makers for adding yet more sad dross to an already dross filled daytime TV schedule?

Maybe you should have watched "the wright stuff" instead a much better morning show to watch imo, can't comment on the laptop, obviously someone with too much spare time on their hands.

The only time daytime TV goes on is if the wife is off work sick. It's usually dire stuff involving lots of people selling stuff at car boot sales to afford to go to Australia or the countryside (where there are lots of murders solved by some bloke called Lewis Barnaby.)

Surprised a policeman didn't use it to leak something to the press Smile
