Well, there's Footy and the Tour de France to fill up most of the news, so I don't think they'll catch him until after the final and the TdF has calmed down.

A scottish soldier in full dress marches into a pharmacy to speak to the chemist.
He opens his sporran and pulls out a neatly folded cotton handkerchief and unfolds it to reveal a smaller silk square which he also unfolds to reveal a condom.
The condom has a number of patches on it .He holds it up and eyes it critically.
''So how much to repair it ?'' he asks the pharmacist .''six pence says the pharmacist .
How much for a new one ?''Ten pence says the pharmacist.
The Scot folds the condom into the silk square and the cotton handkerchief and marches out the door of the pharmacy .
a moment or two later the pharmacist hears a great shout go up .followed by an even bigger roar .
The Scottish soldier walks in and says :'' The regiment has taken a vote ...we'll have a new one.

Reminds me of the old tale of the Aberdonian that returns home to his parents house after spending a few years down in London. He is carrying a large suitcase, and after telling them how wonderfully well he has done, he opens the case, and it is chock full of £20 pound notes. He takes 2 out and gives them one each and says "That is just my way of saying Thanks for all you have done for me!"
The father turns to the mother and says "Hey Isabel, this is great. It means we can now get married!"
The son says "What? You mean you two are not married?"
The mum says "Oh no son, we could never afford to"
So the son retorts indignantly "Well, you realise what that makes me, don't you?"
"Aye" says the Dad "And a right stingey one too!!"

They would have done that, but the overtime won't get signed off. Besides, if they leave the Police HQ they'll never get a parking space again.

from bbc News

CCTV image of Moat was only released six days after it was recorded.

On 2 July, police received a warning from Durham prison that Moat planned to harm his ex-girlfriend.

Moat was recorded on CCTV in a Newcastle shop on Friday - the day before Miss Stobbart and Mr Brown were shot - but these images were only released as police reissued an appeal for help from the public on Thursday.

IMoat visited a friend at 2330 BST on Saturday to deliver a letter but that friend was not kept under surveillance so that when Moat returned to deliver a second letter the police were not there.

And an armed robbery at a fish and chip shop in Seaton Delaval, near Blyth, on Monday night was not formally linked to the hunt for Moat until Wednesday.

A robbery at this fish shop on Monday was connected to Moat two days later Police only released details of Moat's getaway car, a black Lexus, on Tuesday morning and they got an immediate response. Rothbury resident Isabelle Wilson noticed the car while walking her dogs and contacted the police after hearing their appeal.

That led to the search for Moat focussing on Rothbury, yet police were slow to respond to a farmer's report of smoke from what turned out to be the gunman's campsite.

Then on Tuesday night a house was broken into. Armed police responded and checked the property but did not keep watch over it afterwards and it was later broken into again.

Can they not just get 20 rednecks from the Alabama swamps and 4 bloodhounds?

That always works.

Actually you're quite spot on with that comment...:bluelight

In one branch of the 'law enforcement industry' the New Lie made it, if not illegal, very uncertain if it was, to do certain types of forensic work, so the guys upped sticks. There're several that work from Denmark/Sweden now that I know.

The plod are too busy ticking boxes and signing off papers to make sure that they meet the targets. The sooner these Labour inventions are ridden off the better. Half the force is doing paperwork rather than fight crime.

In my county they have built a new head quarters for the police and the maintenance is 'outsourced' to a private company. This means that even if it a basic task of refilling the bog rolls, the police have to go through ten steps. Earlier it used to a chap going across to the local shop and getting a new roll. Now it is , filling in a request form, sending for approval, request logged in database, outsourced company acknowledges request etc etc.

(Disclaimer: Vine-induced-philosophy)

I'm starting to think there's a very ghoulish aspect about this. It seems we (even if we is only me and the media) are starting to enjoy this hunt as the pursued continually outsmarts the pursuers, in the same way we like to see the fox outwit the toffs on horseback. This guy is a murderer and as such is not deserving of any sympathy: the police are there to protect us and therefore we should support their efforts to capture a fugitive and protect the innocent..... although I find myself unable to concentrate on this fact as I'm mesmorised by the horrific 80s hairstyle of the police spokeswoman).

Anyone wish to place a bet on how much longer he'll be at large? Anyone betting it will emerge he'll have had some kind of 'special' military/survival training in the past? And although it's poor form to say it.. anyone reckon he'll live long enough to face trial?

There's a long thread about him on the ARRSE (Army Rumour Service) forum here (http://www.arrse.co.uk/current-affairs-news-analysis/137251-raoul-moat.html).

Haven't read it yet, but it will be quite interesting to hear what the squaddies have to say, especially as the days ticked by while he remained at large.
