PORSCHE STRETCHES THE TRUTH
new Porsche Limo, as revealed in last month's
wreckered, has shown up in the UK.
The first evidence comes from reader Colin Tominey who got this snap
of the car outside Stella McCartney's wedding on the Isle of Bute.
CAMERAS TO BE ARMED
chiefs have reacted cautiously to renewed calls for speed cameras to be
armed. Following recent vandalism of cameras by organised groups of angry
motorists calling themselves MAD - Motorists Against Drivers - armed speed
cameras are said to be back on the agenda.
The proposed combination
of CCTV and live ammunition has brought criticism from driving organisations,
who have demanded a meeting with Home Office ministers. Last year East
Anglia police piloted a scheme in which speed cameras around Cambridge
were fitted with hi-powered flechettes. The TOW (towed on wire) devices
were withdrawn after shooting only at the tires of police cars and on
one occasion impaling a woman against a kiosk.
Critics warn of a
society governed by a race of robocops on poles. Jackie Moore, currently
taking a year out, said "They'll be like guard towers, man. Total
birth of a machine culture keeping us down. Like, we're already living
in the days of the Terminator or the bible or something". Civil Rights
UK boss Martin Mill echoed Moore's concerns. "It's like, totally
George Orwell. Heavy duty."
