We had a local alcoholic in for pre-sentence reports the other day. Sober (which is not often) he comes across as an ordinary, well-spoken chap. The incident we were dealing with occurred after he had taken ten cans of strong lager and a bottle of wine, which turned him into a menace. Probation asked us to adjourn further for a psychiatric assessment, which we agreed to. As we bailed him he looked straight at me and said "I have a very strong faith in God, Sir"

I was tempted to advise him to transfer his faith to someone better known in Ealing Broadway.
