The Moron Terror

A Geordie friend was in a south London tube station earlier today. Not content with gloating over Sunderland's AFC's relegation from the Premier League, he takes a snapshot of this football headline as it appeared on a screen in the station. Cue an intervention from a community support officer, enforcing anti-terrorism legislation by cracking down on photography in public places. Mockery follows and, like a weak school teacher getting in the headmaster to sort out a troublesome class, proper coppers are called over. They run a name and address check, get a date of birth to differentiate my mate from his namesakes, write up the incident and send him on his way. No word from al-Quaeda yet; no doubt they are still reeling from this latest setback.
