    Unfortunately not. The example artistic licence was in fact using
    artistic licence in the approach to spelling.

  2. What daft advice, 999 calls are supposed to be used for life threatening
    situations, not to settle an argument, or make a point.

    The police will often trick people into accepting a caution because
    most people don't realise they are accepting they are admitting to
    having committed an offence
    Police trickery. They are institutionally corrupt

    Something that they seem - very often - to be unaware of.

    Accepting a caution also means acquiring a criminal record. That's
    sort of implied in what Alang wrote, but I think it's worth
    emphasising the point. For some alleged offences, a caution will also
    result in being placed on the Sex Offenders' Register (or whatever
    it's called this year). See Part 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

    I think you get a free orthographick licence with every artistick
    licence.
