Four Legs Good, Two Legs Badder

After the tube bombings in July, many Londoners decided to stop using the tube and cycle to work. It seems, however, that even cyclists are not safe from the scourge of international terrorism, which now takes on a new form: the seemingly innocent pedestrian.

This worrying development emerged in yesterday's Sunday Times which reported that 34-year-old "property developer" Sally Cameron had been detained for several hours under anti-terrorism legislation after she was caught walking on a cycle-path in Dundee.

In a shocking example of the complacency which has permeated the highest echelons of the British legal system the prosecutor fiscal's office declined to prosecute Cameron despite the fact that, by its own admission, "the evidence is sufficient to justify bringing [her] before the court on this criminal charge."

One couldn't hope for a clearer example of why the proposed Terrorism Bill is so important. For too long the police have countered the terrorist threat to our precious bodily fluids with one leg tied behind their back. No longer can we allow this to continue. The Safety Elephant is pointing the way to the future. Let us follow his lead.
