Attacking Gatso cameras seems to be a new sport http://www.speedcam.co.uk/gatso2a.htm,
I wonder when the season opens and could this be a new winter activity when itís too cold to rib. Des

Unfortunately in Swansea - which is THE car crime capital of Britain the yobs do NOT attack the cameras much - why? Because it is all part of the fun to set them off!!! Along with seeing who can jump the most speed humps!!!

Just noticed that yet again funding has been refused for the air ambulance in Wales - funny they never have a prob finding millions for the Police helicopter.

By the way the yobs think they have really made it when the helicopter is after them - is it really worth it for a stolen Metro???

But not half as 'funny' as the dear old Belgians! And I'm still waiting for someone to confirm the purpose of Belgium's existence.

Ahh, yes...
Hercule Poirot
Eddy Merck
...mmm, I'm stuck now! Google seems to suggest that Plastique Bertrand is Belgian

And Louise tells me that Rene Magritte (c20th surrealist painter) was Belgian, so I suppose that makes up for Hercule Poirot being a fictional Agatha Christie character

Eddie Merck, eh? Now we really are getting desperate. My choice for number 1, and let's face it there is only one, Belgian of all time would have to go to Jackie Ickyx. Unless of course you count Marc Detroux

That's Eddy Merckx - Living legend. Please don't show your ignorance Philip. (I'd have been ruder but I see Richard B got it wrong too).
