There was something on Newstalk today about how MPs have been practising with doing stuff like speedchecks as part of their training for foreign police postings with the UN. Only half heard it but it was on foot of several calls reporting sightings of MPs in odd places. Probably related to at least some of the above.
Why can't regular speed cameras do the same job instead which has the added bonus of policing every vehicle which passes through a location instead of just one or 2 per day ?
Do military vehicles have to obey traffic laws unlike the Gardai who seem to do what they want ? In fairness to our Defence Forces I have yet to see Defence Forces personnel hypocritically taking the piss out of the state unlike the Guards who seem to do it all the time.
Are you Eddie Hobbs ?
Agree, but the military is founded and operated on the principle of discipline. It has to be enforced, no matter how draconian it may seem.Seems a bit draconian. The Phoenix wrote ladt year about the Military Prosoceutor's office being beefed up too.
