Objects Confiscated From People Entering British Parliament

Drawn from a freedom of information request, a breakdown list from London’s Metropolitan Police of the 667 items which they confiscated at Parliament over the first half of 2011 that were classified as “other”. Why were there so many attempts at sneaking harmonicas, giant tennis balls, and shaving cream into the halls of power? I wish that some of these revolutionary plots had gotten further along before being squelched by the law enforcement apparatus. Posted on Reddit:

      i wish they’d list what kind. it’d be hard to conceal one of those big scottish types in tweed trousers…

      • Think you mean a claymore. I’m not an expert on swords though, hammers are my thing.

          exactly. claymore.

            My ancestors were partial to axes. And the ever underrated spear.

            The spear is very cool, especially when you look at the different designs across cultures. I happen to really like anything twin, chinese, and bladed.

            Hard to beat the good old fashioned combo of spear and shield. Simple and effective. The basic tools of any viking raider worth his own salt.

            of course, the spear.shield combo’s ubiquity speaks for itself.
