Wallasey man admits stealing from boss to pay mortgage
By Court reporter
PROBLEMS keeping up with mortgage repayments led to the manager of a carpet store stealing from his employer, Wirral Magistrates heard.
John Griffiths, 37, of Falkland Road in Wallasey admitted stealing a total of £1,821 from the Carpet Company at their Laird Street, Birkenhead store.
Prosecutor Clare Ion told how an investigation was mounted after discrepencies appeared on sale documents. Griffiths was interviewed and said he had stolen cash on about fifty occasions to a total of around £2,000.
In court he apologised. He said he had mortgage problems and saw stealing as the only way of keeping his house. He had let himself down.

What about his co-defendant? You would normally expect an indictment against co-conspirotors who can be shown to have aided and abetted the crime. The lenders! Lend too much and what could the man on the Clapham omnibus reasonably expect was highly likely to occur?

Maybe he lived the high life, spending what he did not have, and not getting his financial priorities in order. ;)

Good God! I was toying with the notion that we'd see more of this sort of thing the only other day :blink:

A true sign of the times I am afraid. The ugly side of the miracle. IMO, as the miracle economy collapses we will see a lot of ugliness both in crimial statistics and in behaviour generally. A lot of anger is building over immigration and that awful Panoroma expose a couple of days ago will have sent a message to the country that Brown is doing nothing to deal with the social deprivation and flouting of the law that is going on. The fact that people will see their "wealth" vanish overnight as house prices collapse will add even more poison to the system. Just wait for the job losses to become prominent and the mood will be foul as winter sets in.

But for now Brown is a knight in shining armour as he "tours" the flood zones. I am not sure if I heard that he had offered accomodation at Chequers and No. 10 to some of the worst affected elderly people? Did I hear wrong?

When I lived in Mexico, in the aftermath of the peso crash, a fellow journo had his car stolen. It was later returned by a bank manager.

People are going to get very horny indeed for cash, very soon.

Are you suggesting they will need to become escort girls/boys?

They can if they want to.

You'll see what I mean soon enough. Anyone who has ever lived in the 'third (or developing) world' will know what I mean.

Everyone in this country with a credit card thinks they're rich. They're about to find out they aren't and thus they will be horney for cash. (As it disappears.)

Is that really so difficult to get?

When someone is blatting you over the head with a blunt instrument to get your cash, you might want to ask him to fill-in a questionaire on the subject.
