They always get moved on though, on account of all the thievery, knifecrime and incest. Hence......'Travellers'

Wouldn't they get arrested for incest? or do they just move up to Jurby :)

The spoiler for both tents though is drinking beer out of plastic cups. Whoever thought that one up should be hung drawn and quartered (then minced)

 

 

Mincing was not really necessary if the full punishment was carried out.

 

you shall be drawn on a hurdle through the open streets to the place of execution, there to be hanged and cut down alive, and your body shall be opened, your bowels plucked out, and your privy members cut off and thrown into the fire before your eyes. Then your head to be stricken off from your body, and your body shall be divided into four quarters

 

I gather that care was normally taken to ensure that the guilty party was still conscious enough to witness the burning of the "privy members".

 

But.... this is the 21st century, not the 17th century.....

I wonder how much DED paid Iron Maiden for this bizarre bit of advertising...

That poster might encourage some impressionable motorcyclists to risk riding their motorcycles without a crash helmet on. Is that the right message for the DED to be pushing?

 

 

The message seems to be "Don't Forget Your Helmet".
