An over-reaction Bradford-style....

I've just been to fill up a petrol can with fuel for the lawnmower. A mundane task of no threat to anybody. Unless you're the cops of course. They've instructed filling stations across Bradford not to sell petrol in cans today.

I assume this is because the people making petrol bombs (if there are any) are stupid enough to go fill up cans at a filling station replete with CCTV? Rather than, for example, siphon the fuel out of cars in the street. And if they are that stupid perhaps they'll just drive to Leeds where the filling station will cheerfully sell them a can full!

Instead, people like me are inconvenienced and some poor bloke who runs out of fuel won't be able to fill a can so as to get home.
