Wally of the Week – Shaun Bailey

Section:

Mayor of London candidate Shaun Bailey’s policy of giving out burglar alarm to 300,000 homes is utterly ludicrous

Burglar and car alarms are certainly amongst the most pointless inventions in history. Generally ignored, they annoy those in their vicinity and never seem to work when they’re actually required.

 

Now, first reported in the blog From The Hornets Nest, “man of gimmicks” Shaun Bailey – the Conservative candidate for Mayor of London – has decided to “give” burglar alarms to every Londoner aged over 65.

In a video shared on Twitter, Bailey announced his policy but did not cite any evidence as to why it would actually be effective. He remarked:

“What I am suggesting I will do is to give free burglar alarms to people aged over 65. They are the most vulnerable people in our communities and they need this protection and there’s the other end of this conversation as well. It makes burglary harder and what that does is reduce the amount of people who become career burglars.”

 

Patronisingly, this foolish man with pockets plainly as large as China then added:

 

“Of course if you really have one or you feel that you can buy your own one, please do go ahead. But you are talking about 200,000 to 300,000 Londoners who really need that support.”

 

As From The Hornets Nest rightly points out, “the millions he proposes to spend [would be] better deployed on replacing ‘on the streets’ police removed whilst he was ‘advising’ [David] Cameron on crime.”

  1. I bet he’s got a contract with ADT or Yale? Or will he be getting a bung of a tenner per set. At 300,000, that’d be £3 million. Nice little earner Shaun, nice little earner.

  2. This is one of the stupidest policy ideas I’ve ever heard of. A home of a 35 year old is more likely to be burgled as it is more likely to contain better electrical goods, computers, etc than an elderly person’s home.

  3. I am a pensioner and I don’t want a burglar alarm. I would not know how to use it even. I don’t even have mobile telephone. My daughter got me an iPad and that is just about enough for.
