There's always John Smith and his incoherent babblings to amuse when Richard fails to do so.
The plod love to indulge in a little overkill - and what is the point of that balaclava anyway? To frighten any on-the-loose nutter, or to hide any identification potential should our hero do-over some nuisance OAP by mistake? And quite right about the "savage cuts" too. Never enough "resources" available when you need some bobby to catch a burglar -but try doing 50mph in a 40mph zone and you'll soon be surrounded by expensive Beemers and R/Rovers or have some expensive Number Plate recognition gizmo giving you their immediate and undivided attention! And if you're really lucky you could have the Force's Whirly-Bird hovering overhead as well, asking you to say "cheese" to the camera! Never a shortage of resources for the "easy" policing bits - much better than chasing some muggers on foot when you can play Starsky & Hutch in a patrol Beemer with that adrenalin-rush siren wailing and the blue lights flashing! No, "Evenin' all" from this lot - more likely "You're nicked"!

Give it up John, Richard's never going to invite you to dinner.
