STOLEN in London: LC63 YBB, brand new bright red Vespa GTS300

Please help spread the news to reunite a girl with her brand new scooter and, hopefully, with some of the possessions, too.

Stolen from Bidborough Street, St Pancras, London on Monday 17 February between 17.50 and 20.00 a dragon red (bright red) Vespa GTS 300 scooter, with matching topbox, full height windscreen and a Tucano Urbano leg cover.

Plate: LC63 YBB; three weeks old, appx 500km on the clocks. A couple of stone chip marks on the left hand side of the bike and the topbox, some scratches on the left hand side of the windscreen from when the wind blew it over.

With the bike, she also lost several things which will have been dumped:

A Schuberth J1 silver open face helmet, black Ixon waterproofs (originally in a large Fortnum & Mason bag), Tucano Urbano goretex gloves, red Moomin bandana.

A cream canvas shoulder bag with a picture of an old green/yellow Helsinki tram on it, black Jones ankle boots in excellent condition (originally in a Harrods bag), several pairs of Bravissimo bras still in store wrapping, Dior prescription sunglasses in a black hard Gucci case, white Snoopy Moleskine notebook, Holts travel guide to Ypres Salient, Deutsche Bank staff pass in a blue Moomin lanyard, two plain office notepads, a mouse, a floral thin umbrella.

None of the above has any real monetary value, but it’s a pain and an unnecessary cost to replace it, so please keep your eyes peeled for these discarded items.

If you see/are offered the bike, please call the Met. If you find any of the other items, please email her directly on Paivi at Hotmail co uk (she’s given me her permission to post the a/c, as she created it for this purpose only).

Yes, and I believe a damp sponge on a stick was used, and rinsed in a bucket of water.

TV drama called “Borgia’s”

I watched part of this, the character of Borgia as a cardinal in the Roman Church. When elected as Pope “Habemas Papam!” one of the test the mediaeval character had to go through was his “dandly bits” had to be checked out to see if he had “habemas duo testiscles et pendulous!” That proved the newly elected Pope had 2 bollocks & a dick, and was not a girly with a clunge! The question is – do modern Papal candidates have to go through similar investigations? I know, I need to take my bedtime meds now……!

Interesting question, but is it a matter of concern to anyone?

I bet Jarrod would be interested in that job.

Is that not because a female managed to become Pope once?
