Which Would You Trust?
Letter in this morning's Daily Telegraph, from Mr. Roger Mason, of Devon: Sir, I was surprised to have my shotgun licence application rejected, owing to the fact that the co-signatory was unsatisfactory. Apparently the occupation of Master of Foxhounds which had been written in the relevant box did not represent a person of sufficient standing in the community. The firearms officer politely suggested that it should be an MP or someone similar. At least, in these austere times, the police still retain a sense of humour.
