GARDA LACK OF IT FACILITIES

Piece from Irish Times, reporting on lack of computer facilities for the Garda Siochana, the Irish police. Big report from their inspectorate. Surprising absence of computer aided despatch sysems and basic email facilities.

SHADOWY ARMS DEAL TRACED TO KAZAKHSTAN

“BOMB DETECTOR” MAKER ARRESTED

Other newspapers give more details. Odd since the BBC broadcast a programme on this on Newsnight last night. Even odder that it took a media investigation to make anything happen. Dowsing plus a store theft tag, all powered by “static electricity”, allegedly…hmmm. Iraq paid $40,000 per unit, allegedly. Pass me my alleged homeopathic tranquilisers, please.
