If, like me, your Mrs makes you watch Geordie Shore, then you might have a vague idea as to what I am talking about. If not, then Geordie Shore is basically a group of mid-20 somethings, getting paid to go out on the lash, and shag each other. Epic.
And, before you ask, there are currently no vacancies for the show.
On Saturday night, Oppos from Northumbria Police were called to an event being hosted by 25-year old Stephanie Snowdon to celebrate her birthday.
And before people start whining about the misnomer that the Police should have ‘better things to do’, the Police go where they are called. Simple.
It would appear that the revellers were more-or-less compliant with the directions given by the Cops who attended the address. Which is always a good thing.
But considering how many Cops had to attend the location, then should the Reality TV star be made to pay for the time which was spent by the Police whilst having to bring the party, which apparently got out of hand, to an early end?
Surely, if you have a party, then its your own responsibility to make sure that things don’t get too lively?
Especially if you are in the public eye?
Or, at the very least, if you are a celebrity, then pay for your own security, as its pretty obvious star-struck fans are going to want to get a piece of the action?
At least, in this incident, the party-goers appeared to be quite a decent bunch.
When I served in the Metropolitan Police ( East London), I lost count of the amount of times when me and my oppos were called to parties which had gotten out of hand, only to be met with a cold front of empty bottles (and other missiles) being thrown towards our location…
We were even sometimes met by incoming turds (human) – but that was mainly when we got called to illegal raves, where patrons tend not to wash for weeks on end.
