    Just had to show you this –

    Hero Granny Stops Thieves!!!

    Northampton Heroine beats off SIX would-be robbers with her HANDBAG!

    No sound to the above as it was filmed by an “onlooker”. Nothing personal to the video filmer, but thank God in this world we don’t all choose to be onlookers.

    Video also here with a report – at ITV News. and here at Anglia where it sounds as though the people filming are calling the Police.

    Watch the one with the white helmet, in the jeweller’s doorway, thumping away in vain at the shop window. When he spots Northampton’s gutsy crime-fighter walloping his partners in crime it is as though Clark Kent has landed. He runs, terrified, to jump on the back of a moped/scooter. He is the one the other passers-by then leap on with some (delayed) gusto.

    It isn’t often I whoop while watching the news. This time I had to whoop and laugh out loud at the same time.

    The granny who used her handbag to fight off six hammer-wielding thugs has spoken of how no one came to help her when she first intervened.  The woman, who has been named as Ann Timson from Spring Boroughs in Northampton, said those standing nearby appeared mesmerised and stood their filming or taking photos.

    Yeah, we noticed!

    Well done that super-brave TRUE British citizen.  Great to see that some of us still believe in fighting to prevent the bad from laying low the good.

    The British fighting spirit still lives.



    Daily Mail : “‘Nobody was doing anything, so I just clobbered them!’ OAP tells how she foiled SIX robbers with her handbag”

    “All countries need a leader who isn’t afraid to fight terrorism. I believe Mr. Blair did a necessary job in helping his allies. Are we all just supposed to lie down and wait for them to come for us, I don’t think so.”

    And – “Mr. Blair is one of the finest politicians to have had the privilege of serving the United Kingdom, and Britons are fortunate to have had him as their Prime Minister. Time will show that Mr. Blair’s approach to affairs in the Middle East were and remain correct. From a member of the Commonwealth, thank you, Mr. Blair, for your continued service to legitimate and lasting (and not convenient or politically expedient) freedom.”

    AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”

    AND – “I am sick and tired of television and radio interviewers asking the same old questions over and over, regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, presumably they hope Mr Blair will let slip some secret information which they would then use against him. History will show if the decision was the right one, (I believe it was) but people must accept that Tony Blair is an honourable man, and made his decision based on the known facts and not with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight.”

      Why didnt the cameraman stay where he was and film the whole scene properly using zoom instead of rushing around like a bloody amateur TB? And furthermore, having done so, why did it take SuperGran legging it across the street and attacking them for 20-30 seconds, knocking two off their moped and doubling over in laughter before before anyone else or the cameraman got involved? Northampton, you should hang your heads in shame. Except for SuperGran, of course. She’s from Manchester

    2. menace Says:

      “The manager of Michael Jones Jewellers said he was happy that their security measures had prevented the robbery. ” I didn’t realise SuperGran was part of their security measures?
