The story of Brian Whelan...

Or: how to make yourself look like a prat to the entire country.

For those of you who don't know:
A few weeks ago the MOD decided to mount Starstreak HVM on the roof of some buildings to help with security arrangements for the Olympics. One of these was a block of flats, in a very high class gated community.

Now the news of this deployment was handed out to the locals in a leaflet.

At which Point Mr Whelan started kicking up a stink. his given reasons are varied and many. Such as the Missile might land on his home, or that a spontaneous missile explosion would blow the whole roof in, because the water tower was part of a matchstick factory. Gotta love the logic here. Equally he claims the MOD should have built a separate structure of suitable proportions Just for the Olympics.

Most people thought he was a bit of a tit at this point.
Its also worth noting that the only person to complain so far (that has appeared on the news) is Mr Whelan...

He then lurked in the bushes and filmed the SAM's being left unguarded! Well actually it looked like the crew were unloading, and had just nipped back to the truck for another load. He was standing near hte pile of kit for all of about 20 seconds before three blokes in DPM walked up and asked him what the hell he was doing.

Then he employed a Top Human rights lawyer to sue the Housing agent. So the SAM's must have been against his human rights...?

Anyway, the plot thickens.

Yeah, but, no But yeah but he's got rights, like.

Reminds me of those maggots that objected to having a hostel for families of wounded service men visiting their guy in hospital on the grounds that
it would increase the amount of traffic on the road. Lower the tone of the neighborhood and make them a target for terrorists.

His real fear is he is going to come home and find his Mrs being made airtight by three strapping squaddies.
