You can't, as Sir Michael Jagger used to sing, always get what you want. Last week, a chap with illusions that he has a talent for burglary was sentenced to three years, at Trim Circuit Court.

A householder disturbed the would-be burglar, who dropped his car keys and ran. He left his car behind and later told another victim his name, then fell asleep on the job. It was his 64th conviction.

Someone should take this lad aside and suggest he might have ended up in the wrong line of work. Perhaps he ought to try banking.
