Re: Burka Bandits

First thing that came to mind on reading the story...... these guys targetted this man and his home because of the safe... and used a van so they could take it away... rather than the usual Vauxhall Corsa getaway car

@30FTTC06  Not that original.  Some of Mr Corbyn's neighbours were at it in 2013: http://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/news/crime-court/new-film-depicts-islington-gang-s-selfridges-smas...

Pity the neighbours didn't call the police instead of posting on facebook.

@shutter

Driving anything in a Burka would be a dead giveaway as I don't think 'women' dressed like that are allowed to drive by the law of our land or the religion of theirs? 

Neat all the same and no, I'm not condoning crime. Roll eyes

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: Burka Bandits

I was once told by an over keen copper that the "I've got a Tiger in my Tank" sticker (remember those?) on my rear windscreen was restricting my view and that technically I was committing an offence. He was not amused when I asked him about the tax disc on the front.  

Mind you, it was a little Austin A30 like this so.....

@Minivanman  No, I don't think it's against the law in this country to drive dressed like that, and the driving ban for women is Saudi law; women in - at least some - other Muslim countries are allowed to drive.

Re: Burka Bandits

I've also had a good chuckle @Burka wearing drivers in full face vails of various colours and models, grill or slit type etc while working in Birmingham. The grill type was the most alarming that I've seen people trying to drive with.

@30FTTC06

Well it's almost certainly illegal in the accepted sense, but it would be a brave copper who stopped the driver and reported the offence.

Can you just imagine the poo storm?

Re: Burka Bandits

Of course we've sort of been here before with turbans.

But in that case the big difference is the Sikh is only endangering his own life.
