green weapons

September 20, 2006

A hilarious post on Big John’s blog about a “new generation of environmentally friendly weapons.”

Health warnings on missiles- a good idea:

Meanwhile, “The Metropolitan police have pleaded not guilty to breaching health and safety laws over the death of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes in July 2005.” Presumably they were charged with not washing their hands before pulling the trigger. I see some meddling MP’s “queried whether health and safety legislation was the correct test for a terrorist operation.” Why ever not? Suicide bombers show scant regard for hygiene and can make an awful mess, inconveniencing  numerous people. What better way to deal with them than drop on them the full weight of the Health And Safety At Work Act 1974? Section 8 is  particularly draconian “”No person shall intentionally or recklessly interfere with or misuse anything provided in the interests of health, safety or welfare in pursuance of any of the relevant statutory provisions.” If that doesn’t deter some of these terrorists I don’t know what will.

    Just spotted a serious offence in the picture- leaving a dirty rag on a missile- that must be dealt with pretty severely under the 1974 Act.
