Opinion noted

A fellow riding shotgun in a BMW X5 in Northumberland apparently mooned the speed camera, causing wailing and gnashing of teeth for at least one minion of Her Majesty’s Nanny State:

Jeremy Forsberg, of the Northumbria Safer Roads Initiative, said: “This behaviour is simply ridiculous — it’s clear what he was thinking with what he had on show. Not only is it disrespectful, but distasteful and offensive, particularly to children who may have been exposed to this nonsense. This prank could have been a real distraction from the driver and that is not something to laugh about.”

Get a grip, Jer. The camera could have gotten shot at.

    “not something to laugh about”

    I respectfully beg to differ. That’s actually a rather clever and amusing prank.

    I guess the real reason Monty Python broke up is, how do you parody that!?

    His name is “Jeremy,” which is all you need to know

    Somebody mooned a speedcam in Northumberland, and upset Jeremy goes for the Twit Of the Year Award:
