Yesterday as I watched the M6 Toll Megabus spectacle my business partner waved up electronic cigarette and siad nonchalantly "it was one of these" . Today he walked in with an electronic cigar , much to my amusement. What I am struggling to understand about this incident is that if the bus spent about 45 minutes from alerting police to being evacuated how come nobody had realised that the passengers had not been gassed or asphyxiated and that perhaps there was a teen weeny element of overkill , which is euphamisitcally referred to as "a proportionate response" by the scrambled egg in a shiny brand new spotless hi-vis jackets.
Mind you I suppose it saves the cash starpped tax payer for paying to stage an exercise even though others probably lost a packet as they fumed on the carriageway with their window sealed and their aircon switched off - now there's a real public danger on a hot day
