Default Stolen Bike

Stolen Bike - a few weeks ago someone left an expensive mountain bike in the car par to our flats. We have stopped at least 2 attempts to steal it by hooded yoofs. Now we have it under lock and key. But how to find the owner is a moot point. We have tried Hillingdon Council - they say its a police matter. We have tried the local police and they says its a Council matter. CJB

Blimey! you must live close to me. We moved from Hayes 14 years ago and
now have a place in Langley. Hayes is now like Dodge city. Glad we got
out just in time :-)

How do you know the hooded yoofs didn't include the owner among their
number?

People of such descriptions often ride bikes.

We Americans have a saying for the inadequacies of buckytooth limey
government, SNAFU (situation normal all ****ed up).
Deal with it!


Why would anyone leave an expensive bike just lying in public with no lock?

Hitler.


Your answer makes no grammatical sense. You can't answer a why with a
pronoun.

'Hitler' isn't a pronoun. It's a noun.

It's a personal pronoun, you dummies.


No it isn't. It is a proper noun. Just as all names are.

Personal pronouns are 'he', 'she', 'they' etc.

"Hitler" is a proper noun, not a pronoun.

There is no reason why a question may not be answered - colloquially -
with a marker term which plainly stands for a whole argument, though in
the instant case, Godwin threatens to intervene.

I could have just written: "Godwin".
