The anti-war protester Brian Haw could be exploited by terrorists wanting to bomb Westminster, a court heard. Mr Haw’s banners outside the Houses of Parliament could be used to conceal a device by extremists, Marylebone Magistrates’ Court was told.

Well yes they could. But so could a backpack. Or a shopping trolley. Or a pizza box. Or a black cab. Or a bus. Or a briefcase. Or a large German Shepherd. Or a herd of school children. Or a car. This list could get quite long.”
