I heard on R4 this afternoon that Lewes police are trying to find a guy who has taken pictures of his tackle, printed them on A3 and A4 paper, and stuck the posters up around the town. Needless to say, I had a good snigger and wondered if this was really a good use of police resources (they're having the posters fingerprinted, apparently).
Why can't they just reproduce the pics in the Sussex Express and see if anyone can identify him?

Yes, I think it's rather mean that they're being taken down before we've all had the chance of a chuckle. I think it's funny, tbh, especially as some people seem to be a bit aerated about it all.
If anyone knows the location of any still on display, do share!

Maybe the male population of Lewes have to have a trousers down line-up like on the Porkies film.
Apparently some of the posters carry the byline "fees set to rise later this year", which taken together with the fact that the Lib Dems are/were opposed to student fees, and the fact that the pictured todger had a yellow ribbon tied around it, leads me to believe that we may be looking for a Liberal Democrat. Maybe the fuzz ought to be checking Norman Baker's office!

Funny how quickly the police are on to this while they have still done nothing about the man who put out leaflets saying 'Vote for me - I'm the only one who can keep the Tories out' and then, once elected, became a minister in a Tory government. Justice, pah!

the good name of the town is besmirched forever. i reckon it's a mason. that's why the police are onto it so quickly. i wonder how they are going to carry out an investigation and what will the offender be charged with ? offending public decency or vandalism ???

Saw one of these in The Paddock on the weekend.
He's a Roundhead, not a Cavalier, if that helps. As it goes, I would have assumed it was a porn pic nicked off the web rather than a self-portrait, but I wouldn't claim to be an expert in these matters.

I was wondering about the offence, BB. I think you have to actually expose yourself in the flesh for it to be indecent exposure, and I couldn't really think what else he's done wrong, tbh. They never seem to prosecute anyone for sticking up flyers.
Mind you, if you were a magistrate and this guy was in your court, you'd let him off lightly because of the merriment factor, wouldn't you?

Just read about it in the metro paper, police quote 'From what we've seen, if this is a self-portrait, the artist won't be in a hurry to be identified'. Brilliant! I want to see one now! I love living in Lewes, what fun!

Not many men have access to ribbon. Could this man be a morris dancer? Perhaps LewesLawyer can tell us whether prosecution could put an end to his bell.

On second thoughts Down and Out's observation that the chap is a Roundhead rules out the Morris dancer theory, as I'm told you have to be a complete p***k to be one of those.
