My good friend Rich Boakes has blogged a powerful story about a man in Suffolk who is selling gallows to foreign states for a cool 12,000 GBP a pop – including such pillars of human rights as Zimbabwe.
Too many crims needing to be dealt with ? Well he can help you out, as the BBC says:
The execution equipment he says he sells ranges from single gallows, at about Â£12,000 each, to “Multi-hanging Execution Systems” mounted on lorry trailers, costing about Â£100,000.
As Rich puts it so succinctly:
This month Mr. Lucas is going to make a killing. Next month killing will continue, but Mr. Lucas will just have his regular customers; if they still want to do business with him.
Rich’s article has the details if, like me, you’d like to avoid doing any business with Mr David Lucas (below).
So does this job come under the category of ‘well, somebody’s got to do it? Was i supposed to laugh at this? I did..a lot:) Bloody ‘ell 12 grand for a few bits of recycled railway sleeper..can’t be bad eh?
Well, his business partner is claiming it’s all a hoax..
Awesome. I have some old television sets and lawn furniture laying around in the
garage, I think I will sell Kaffer Mugabe an electric chair.
