Police spend FOUR WEEKS tracking down mother after she made Facebook joke

Police spend FOUR WEEKS tracking down mother, 45, after she made Facebook joke about egging PM

* Debra Burt made remark after becoming frustrated with government cuts
* She wrote 'Cameron - I'd like to egg him' on a friend's Facebook
* Two officers visited her - they had been looking for her for 4 weeks, she said


Police spent four weeks tracking down a mother who joked on Facebook about throwing an egg at David Cameron, it has today been claimed. Debra Burt said that she made the remark after becoming frustrated with government cuts.

The 45-year-old from Ramsgate, Kent, wrote: 'Cameron - I'd like to egg him' on a friend's Facebook timeline, during a conversation about the Prime Minister's visit to Kent last week to witness the Archbishop of Canterbury being sworn in. She told the Sun she felt as if the police had been snooping on her.

She said: 'I’m not a terrorist. I’m just a middle-aged woman who made a jokey remark. I’d like to chuck an egg at him but I’d never do it. I’m just unhappy I can’t find more work.'

Her comments were posted on a friend's Facebook account. She quipped that she was 'good at throwing eggs' and jokily boasted that she had never missed. The day before the ceremony, she said she was visited by two officers who said they had been looking for her for four weeks. Two detectives knocked on her door in Ramsgate the day before the ceremony and said they had been hunting her for four weeks.

She said they had looked through her Facebook site, and tried an old mobile phone number and former address.

The mother-of-two labeled the situation a waste of time and said officers should instead be fighting 'real crime'.

A Kent Police spokesman said officers monitored Facebook ahead of Cameron’s visit and had responded to information that someone was going to throw an egg. They added that officers were satisfied there was no threat after making a visit.

Mr Cameron, former Prime Minister John Major, Labour’s Ed Milliband and John Prescott have all been egged in the past while campaigning.

The moral of the story is.....Don't make jokes otherwise the police will be after you! Abuse & torture kids, they will ignore you and sweep it under the carpet, especially if you are a politician, governmental minister or hold any sort of power in this UK society

It took TM and C-R 4 YEARS to track down TB, and he gave them his name, address, telephone number, email . . . !

Well I cannot believe what I am reading. Four weeks to track this lady down. Do they really think she would announce her intentions on facebook if she were really going to do it. It beggars belief what is going on. The amount of serious crime that is going unsolved and four weeks is spent on this. What must posters from other countries think when they read things like this going on in Britain.
Burn our flag in broad day light and the police can't do a thing? You couldn't make it up.

Well I'm concerned that she hadn't declared the eggs to be free range and organic. I ask you, if you're going to throw an egg at someone important the least you can do is to make sure that said eggs are the best and come from happy chickens.

Two senior Doctor Who staff 'used their jobs to sexually exploit young male fans of BBC show in 1980s'

* Producer John Nathan-Turner 'groomed young men who visited studios'
* Production manager Gary Downie was also involved, new book claims
* Book claims JNT once engaged in sex act in BBC office while on phone

The BBC faces a new sex scandal (another one) over claims two senior Doctor Who staff abused their positions to exploit fans. A book alleges the show’s longest-serving producer, John Nathan-Turner, and his partner, production manager Gary Downie, preyed on young male fans in the 1980s. Many of the men, the book says, were under 21 – at the time the homosexual age of consent. Former Blue Peter editor Richard Marson makes the claims in his biography of Mr Nathan-Turner, who died in 2002.

In JN-T: the Life and Scandalous Times of John Nathan-Turner, Mr Marson says he was propositioned in 1984, aged 17, after visiting the studio for a Doctor Who Magazine article. He writes: ‘He [Nathan-Turner] got a bit frisky, shall we say. ‘I was a bit taken aback; I was only 17 and . . . he said to me, “You’re so f****** provincial”.’

The next year, on the promise of Doctor Who photographs, Mr Marson visited the studio again. He says he was then assaulted by Mr Downie, who died in 2006.

In another incident, Mr Marson says a wealthy fan supplied Mr Nathan-Turner with male escorts in exchange for visits to the studio and souvenirs. He adds both men were on the look-out for teenage fans who would have sex with them because of Doctor Who – dubbing the fans ‘doable barkers’. He claims Mr Nathan-Turner, producer from 1980-89, once engaged in a sexual act in his BBC office while on the phone to Blue Peter editor Biddy Baxter.

The accusations come in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal, with fears the BBC DJ and Jim’ll Fix It host sexually abused up to 450 adults and children. The BBC was accused of a cover-up after dropping a Newsnight investigation into Savile after his death in 2011. The broadcaster has since established a review to hear victims’ evidence and to examine the culture of the institution. Mr Marson says some people felt the men’s behaviour was ‘inappropriate’, but were not willing to tell police. He writes: ‘It would not be true to say I’ve found anyone willing to testify to coercion or abuse.'

He told online sci-fi magazine Starburst: ‘I don’t think he [Nathan-Turner] was predatory . . . I don’t think he forced himself on the unwilling. I was much more cautious about Gary.’ A BBC spokesman said: ‘We cannot comment on individual cases but clearly allegations of this nature are extremely serious. We have set up the Dame Janet Smith Review to help us understand how alleged incidents of this nature could have been committed and how we can avoid them happening again.’

÷ Police dismissed reports of a suspected paedophile ring at BBC soap EastEnders. The Sun newspaper yesterday claimed a unit was set up over allegations adults groomed children on set in the 1980s and 90s. Police said no such unit exists and no abuse was reported.

big grin I think you're missing the point. sarcastic
It's not the social standing of the person or whether he's important or not that's the issue here.
The issue here is he's a hateful figure, and his actions not to popular liking of the general public. Hence if anyone feels so inclined to egg him then it would have to be ROTTEN eggs that best serve the purpose. I suppose rotten tomatoes will have same impact; depending which is easier to hurl from a distance. big grin

Maybe No. 10 has already questioned him behind closed doors, and rotten eggs were hurled acrossed cross-party closed door meeting.
