Hair driers are the new terrorist weapon.



Well not quite. But our idiot Police "Service" seem to think so.

Anna Williamson and Jamie Rickersr, from hit show Toonattik, were filming London's South Bank wearing combat gear and armed with children's walkie-talkies and hairdryers.

But the fake fatigues aroused the suspicions of patrolling police, who stopped them and took down their details under terrorism laws.

I mean really. Are they just plain stupid or more likely trying to up their stop and search score?

Would real terrorists be going around like this in full view?

"Jamie and I were kitted out in fake utility belts, we had the whole bulletproof flakjacket thing, we've got hairdryers in our belt, a kids' £1.99 walkie-talkie, hairbrushes and all that kind of stuff, and we were being followed by a camera crew and a boom mike and we get literally pulled over by four policemen and we were issued with a warning 'under the act of terrorism'."

And how laughable

'we are holding you under the Anti-Terrorism Act because you're running around in flak jackets and a utility belt', and I said 'and please put spangly blue hairdryer' and he was, like, 'all right'." (Emphasis mine).

What has our country come to? Aaaaagh

  1. Anyone armed with a blue spangly hairdryer is a danger to the public.
