Man writing missed connections at pains to clarify he is "not a nutter"
25th November 2014

Louise Scodie and Anthony Baxter were joined by Jamie Dunkley, city correspondent for the Evening Standard, and Rich Patrick, writer and blogger. 

Woman Steals £52 of meat from Sainsbury’s

The hunt is on after CCTV images were released of a suspect who shoplifted £52 worth of meat from a Sainsbury’s in Leyston.

After filling her carrier bag with uncooked meat, she left the store without making any attempt to pay.

8-year-old replacing a stolen poppy tin

When a kind hearted eight-year-old found out the poppy tin at her local chippie had been stolen, she was appalled and set about pooling her pocket money to replace the lost money.

Mille Timmins of Old Coulsdon also helped replace the funds raised for British Royal Legion by collection donations from other local residents.

However, Rich Patrick is cynical about the entire good-natured act. 

Man writing missed connection definitely “not a nutter”

In a particularly unconvincing move, a man who wrote a missed connection and stapled it to a tree assured its intended sweetheart (victim?) that he was “NOT A NUTTER”. Yes, he even used capital letters. 

The mysterious Romeo said he was looking for the woman he had been talking to in Blackheath “before the police turned up.”

In a pleasingly literal interpretation of the game, the new prompted Jamie Dunkley to exclaim that he really couldn't believe the Standard had missed this hilarious and only slightly creepy tale of thwarted love.
