Explosive find at arms fair
You'd expect explosive finds at arms fairs but this one is more figurative than literal. An Israeli stand was closed down at the Docklands "Defence Systems Equipment International Show" because the company sold torture instruments. The company admitted that it does indeed sell leg irons, clubs and electric shock equipment but their spokesman said that, whilst the gear appears in their brochure, none was on display at the show. Priceless! But wait, it gets better. According to the JC, the company, Tar Ideal, is considering legal action against the organisers. A quick google search on Tar Ideal shows that they already have quite a reputation.
