Who Blew Up Eastleigh Speed Camera?

Shocking scenes in Eastleigh back in 2009 as police hunted a “terrorist” who blew up a speed camera with a bomb:

spee“A LOUD explosion shocked a sleeping Hampshire neighbourhood when a speed camera was blown up in the middle of the night. Weary-eyed residents in Eastleigh rushed to their windows at 2.30 a.m. to find the camera in Bishopstoke Road surrounded by a cloud of smoke Police and firefighters raced to the scene fearing that the explosion had come from the nearby Jet petrol station, but on arrival they found the fixed camera had been blown to pieces.”

As far as Guido can tell cops never caught the culprit. Here is one clue though: the speed camera in question was on the very same road as the house belonging to a certain criminal MP with the motivation…

    Emily Thornberry is on the Daily Politics. She really is a pompous up her own arse hypocrite. She is probably the most odious labour female MP, even including Harman.

    Wind turbines & speed camera’s are both there to steal money from the productive side of the economy.

    State theft. Organised crime.

    It is right & proper for the little people to fight back against political tyranny.

    Destroying speed camera’s & wind turbines is a patriotic act & I applaud the political resistance undertaking such magnificent acts.

      Could we not incorporate this into the new academic baccalaureate. It could well be the most significant thing in democratic education since the abolition of free milk,

      Careful there, you’ll reawake Fawkes’s vow
      To blow up the Westminster sacred cow
      Forensics on fragments of such a cull
      Would prove it was all just a load of bull

      Well said Sarah, i wonder how many agree with this sentiment.

      I’m hoping you/others here might be able to answer a question i have? probably just in part, because i fear the ramifications of this idea would be very wide reaching.

      Is this a bad idea? (below)

      With possibly no more that 5% of the worlds “money” being HARD CASH the rest being 1’s and zeros in computers, what i might propose is a National
      “Show me MY money day”

      if enough people went to the bank to withdraw their surplus cash (leave only enough for the DD’s Standing orders etc to cover commitments/bills) even the dormant accounts with say £2.67 in, it would not be long before people were walking away empty handed!

      Imagine then they handed over to the teller a letter something like this…

      To the Manager of __________ Bank.

      Today __/__/2013 i was unable to withdraw
      £_.__ of MY MONEY.

      I am writing to inform you that i am charging
      ________ Bank .5% over base rate per day
      until such time as MY MONEY is available.

      You will also be charged £35 for this letter to
      be combined with £_.__ mentioned above.
      (£_.__ + £35 = £3_.__ X .5% per day)

      Yours sincerely

      __________ ____________


      (they regularly write to me to INFORM me that their T&C’s have changed and that i have no choice but to accept them)

      EVERYTHING counts in large amounts, even those £2.67’s and .5%’s
      only then maybe will our lords and rulers, dictators and oppressors, realise they can NOT eat 1’s and zeros in computers, it could be very leveling.

      I don’t imagine the effects of this to be pretty, but i could see something like this bringing the current financial regime to it’s knees, i don’t foresee “the powers that be” taking too well to this and it would get messy,
      but when we inoculate/treat we sometimes make things worse before they get better.

      My gut feeling is that it would be a bad idea.

      I would appreciated peoples thoughts.

        ?..? says:

        Are you trying to start a bank run? We already have quite enough problems with the banksters without you setting off a world wide panic! By all means go to the bank and get all your money out, but then what? How is your salary paid? If you crash the banking system, how will your DDs be settled? You have not really thought this through have you?

        Better to stick to toppling windmills and breaking speed cameras.

          maybe i am…… i have no little consumers, no mortgage (death-grip) no faith in the current system.
          I’ve served my country and i think it’s broken!
          i’m guessing you have lots of 1’s & zeros in computer but if that disappeared where would you be? i know i’d be ok ;)

          read my question again i didn’t say take ALL my money out, but anyway i asked the question to see what response it would get that’s all.

          i am thinking of the long game, something the powers that be do too, but the long game of enriching themselves at the expense of all of us,
          i’d rather rough it, to see a better system in place in 20 years time, than watch the continuance of this rotten system for the benefit of rotten people (maybe you are whom i speak of, maybe you aren’t)

          guaranteeing the unborn debt, holding most of the land/property/wealth
          in their nepotistic little groups.
          denying basic things that they all enjoy/enjoyed (free higher education, access to credit, affordable housing) basic rights

          quite frankly i’m all for anything that sticks it to the “i’m all right Jack generation(s)”
          is that you by any chance?

    Speed cameras are usually yellow coloured. Interesting that this one is orange – another clue perhaps ?

    Mike Handycock MP, a bloke who knows a bloke, says:

    Let us just say that there are many individuals in the nearby city of Portsmouth who are capable of pulling this off, and for a good and valuable consideration, would do so. Introductions may have been made by certain persons to other persons of still more other persons. What happened afterwards, only those individuals can say. Boaz.

    Put Jeremy Heywood on the case to investigate and inspect the CCTV footage.

    Rest assured, Heywood will get to the bottom of this in no time at all.

    About to apply for a polish licence says:

    I think we can safely assume that the culprit was British because it is only UK licence holders that can be endorsed with three penalty points. Foreign drivers are rarely pursued and if they are then their licences are NOT legally able to be endorsed.

    This was obviously due to an extreme weather event caused by global warming.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
