Jet Set Willy

It's been a long time since we've had the opportunity to pay another visit to the London Metropolitan Art Police HQ in Hackney, but I was very pleased that Alan and I made the effort this evening, because the experience was edifying.


We had an open invitation to watch several detectives and fire arms officers giving a demonstration of the tactics that they have learnt from their professional training by the crew of Team Robbo. We were particularly impressed with the quality and speed of their "We Must Perform A Quirkafleeg" search and destroy missions. Burners were completed in world record time and the quality of their outlines and fills was impressive. If there was one criticism, this would probably be that the texts in most of their pieces is rather too 'cautious' and too small for proper legibility. Also at times, they seemed to be treating their exercises rather like a game - but we were assured that the new guidelines published in the LMAP ZX manual that have recently been issued, will rectify this.


Thanks to our reporters from the London Metropolitan Art Police and the U.S. Navy for giving us special permission to publish one of their restricted photographs (Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Brian M. Brooks).
