The Anonymous Widower

Nothing Changes

The Americans never change, when it comes to the crimes and misdemeanours of their diplomats, forces personnel and their families in the United Kingdom.

Over the last few days, the case of the death of Harry Dunn, by a stupid driver reportedly on the wrong side of the road, has come to attention on the news.

Perhaps, twenty-five years ago, C and myself were at a dinner party given by a Chinese friend and we got talking to a retired Chief Constable from East Anglia, who C knew through various legal connections.

At the time, there had just been a fatal road crash involving a United States serviceman, near one of the many bases and there was a row going on, as the suspect had been whisked back home.

I remember the retired Policeman saying that it was always happening and justice was rarely seen to be done.

  1. And sadly nothing will change in this instance. You do feel for the family.

    • You do feel for them! I remember the retired Chief Constable saying it used to happen around US bases all round the world. He put it down to lots of cheap booze in the on-base bars.

  2. I see the Trump is going to speak to the woman in question but, I reckon at the end of the day they’ll not send her back.

    • They never do! Americans are very good drivers and don’t commit offences. Tell that to the good people of East Anglia.
