Hard to believe someone could pull off this obscene scam in the modern era.
Selling expensive explosive detectors to countries like Iraq.
The pseudo-technology is no better than dowsing!
Jim McCormick, the filthy rich entrepreneur promoting this device, is an ex-copper.
(Always puzzled me why the British think they have the best police service in the world - but that's another topic!)
