Kuntish Keystone Kops

I suppose he was Austrian, so he could have been a far-right terrorist, but it does seem more likely that actually, the police once again just had their fucking heads up their own arseholes AGAIN:

Like most visitors to London, Klaus Matzka and his teenage son Loris took several photographs of some of the city's sights, including the famous red double-decker buses. More unusually perhaps, they also took pictures of the Vauxhall bus station, which Matzka regards as "modern sculpture".

But the tourists have said they had to return home to Vienna without their holiday pictures after two policemen forced them to delete the photographs from their cameras in the name of preventing terrorism.

Matkza, a 69-year-old retired television cameraman with a taste for modern architecture, was told that photographing anything to do with transport was "strictly forbidden". The policemen also recorded the pair's details, including passport numbers and hotel addresses.



Why? What the cunting fuck do the police fucking think is suspicious about taking fucking photos, then?

A spokeswoman for Metropolitan police said: "It is not the police's intention to prevent tourists from taking photographs and we are looking to the allegations made." The force said it had no knowledge of any ban on photographing public transport in the capital.


Maybe you need to fucking tell the cocksucking little Führers that work for you that.

It's OK, he can just have a stroll around it on google street view.

That's all we need - the tourist industry fucked up by the government.
Now that someone from abroad can sightsee here on a groat a day, we need all the buggers we can get.

Plod knew they were Austrian - they were looking for photos of women in basements with cabbage-patch children.

Just proves how thick the copper was, he's obviously never heard of file recovery software...

Naughty microdave - the bastards will now nick your SD card rather than getting you to delete the photos.

Apparently it was Plastic Plod, rather than 'real' police - I'd have just walked off and ignored the idiots.

What's the betting it was special police. Although this does sort of remind me of the planespotters

@ aproposofwhat OOOp's, sorry - Just give them the battery pack instead, the typical Plastic Plod wouldn't know the difference.

@ Hugh, I think there is some difference between taking pictures of London Buses in London, compared to shooting pictures through the fence of a Military airfield in Greece...

Terrorist....tourist,
If you say it quickly it's an easy mistake to make.
Add in a Texan (read GWB) drawl and it becomes an even easier mistake to make.





...for complete fucking boneheads, of course.
