Six hurt in letter bomb campaign

While most of us are enthralled by a video tape showing US forces firing on a British convoy in Iraq and an ex-astronaut losing her fucking mind, mail is exploding in Britain.

Six people were hurt on Wednesday by the latest in series of letter bombs, but police said they believed the devices were intended to shock, not kill.

Well is there anything quite as shocking as when your birthday card from great aunt Millie blows off your pinkie finger?

Wednesday's blast at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in Swansea, was the third in three days aimed at agencies or contractors involved in enforcing traffic rules, leading media to blame disgruntled motorists.

Well let's not run out Islamic fanatics just yet. The only thing they haven't declared jihad on yet are cars.

The bombs were similar to three others sent in January, one of which bore the name of a jailed animal rights activist.

So to all my readers in the land over the ocean, don't open your mail. Or at least have someone you don't like all that much do it.

Life sucks at the moment if you have anything to do with speed cameras and London Congestion Charges - and so it should. Time for payback on these Fother Muckers.

Makes a change from burning/glass etching the lenses of/chainsawing down speed cameras.
