We are walking into a catastrophe with these things. In an age where terrorism awaits with baited breath, we as a nation are ignoring the massive threat these things offer.

Want to deliver a payload through the Queens bedroom window with impunity?, want to bring down a plane over London/Birmingham/Edinburgh/Paris/Berlin/Milton keynes?, want to send a dirty bomb through the window of Number 10, well all you need is to goo on Ebay and buy one using whatever credentials you want to, the bigger the better, a few days training and its the Twin Towers at a fraction of the cost.

In the modern history of warfare, if you control the skies you hold the upper hand in the main. I cannot believe the complacency that these things are being regarded as.

Imagine buying five of these things and having a like minded clientele. You could wreak mayhem with them.

The symbology of Drone strikes in a Western Capital would not be lost on an nation or movement or religion who's leading members were taken out or killed by a drone strike from a Western force.

We are ambling into a precarious situation in allowing the free movement of tools that can really hurt us as a society.

Me mukka's just bought one, but his motives are less threatening, as he's more keen on spying on the women in his close, particularly the bird who used to be a Kate Middleton impersonator.

I'd buy one just to spy on Ember's Dad and his conquests.

The tips might come in handy for the new book. :roll:

I'd love to get one, but would no doubt crash it during the first outing and they're not cheap or are they?

Need something big enough to carry a small camera.

Funnily enough, I bought myself a pair of small Pentax Binoculars yesterday and very pleased with the results judging by the tattoos on females I was able to read at 100 metres. :roll:

Let me know if his conquesting causes a heart attack. He's already been in hospital twice, and me thinks a third time could be Adam Faith time.

American terrorists have been causing catastrophes with these things for years.

On a serious note, anything else with such "potential" for destruction, requires Joe Public to have a license. Guns, a car, aircraft or the like are regulated or outright banned.

Time to wise up in Westminster.

Good to see the jolly RAF will be able to get their hands on a shed load more (well a couple ) of these to fly over and bomb the shite out of the Islamist toasters wherever they may hide.

Hip hop hooray....... spiffing

Three years ago I wrote this, sod all has been done since and now we see a major airport bought to a standstill because of one of these.

Very surprised that they can be used near huge international airports.

Dear UK Media

Just a note from your friends here in the Chipping Norton, Islamic State supporters club. The lads here in Chipping have been looking around for some time at ways to bring the word of he who is to be praised to the unbelievers, without the chance of getting shot. A thing none of us here, or our Brothers in Islington fancy much.

Your coverage about how a couple of children's toys has brought an International Airport to it's knees without the need for any of us to risk a fat lot, is flipping wonderful...inshallah.

That flat-foot Rozza, did warn you, but what does he know ?

I'd ban em full stop - I said that years ago and got shot down at work... 'it can't be done ', 'it's only a toy' , 'you are a spoilsport' , 'you're a fascist' etc. etc.

I only hope those people are now stuck in that queue.

Anything drone - like within a quarter of a mile of an airport should be shot down, no questions asked. Pain in the arse these fucking things, ban the sale of them too.

Do the powers that be have the remit to go and search houses local to airports?

It's an arrestable offence, I would certainly hope so.

Two people helping police.

If guilty it would be nice if they were placed in stocks at Gatwick Airport during the day with baggage handling duties through the night.

Considering the hundreds of thousands of pounds they've cost people, not to mention the inconvenience to thousands of travellers, I hope that if convicted, they'll be cleaning the bogs in prison for a few years.

If they form a Drone party, I'll vote for it. One member did more to stop immigration in a day, than politicians have done this year.
