Inbred.

I am more amazed that the site states that there are 182 things to do today in Lincolnshire. I imagine the list starts: pick potatoes, do a bit of poaching, learn Polish...

And steal a tractor............

Funny you should mention the poles, a little further down is a piece about the local tin pot radio station transmitting a show in polish. They are always good to have around for cheap cigarettes.

Any particular reason for the light sentences? Presumably due to the lack of success in the theft? Interesting approach by the judge...........

I think it may have something to do with the lack of brain cells in the theft..

The judge probably decided they wasn't going to make much of a career out of theft and they wouldn't do it again?

Nobody else struck by the context of intimidation by travellers being the driving factor? It sounds like they must have had a pretty miserable existence, like some kind of rural gothic horror story: the Scunthorpe strimmer massacre perhaps?
