"That's one way to get a lift from a trucker
A Dominatrix mannequin has whipped up a storm of protest in a village. The life-size model, with whip, handcuffs and bare buttocks, has been tied to a 'reduce speed now' sign and aims to entice motorists into a crime museum. Parish councillor Bernie Giles admitted the lady- nicknamed Miss Whiplash- had caused a stir but said "She is not very inviting and I do not think it is very necessary." Parish council vice-chairman Julie Wozencroft added: 'it does not portray a very good image of our village.' However, Andy Jones- owner of the Littledean Jail Museum in Littledean, Gloucestershire- said the model tied in with his 200-year-old building, which was once a house of correction. 'She is also a traffic-calming measure and helps slow people down,' he said."
I don't doubt it slows people down I'd be pretty shocked too if I drove past a sign in Gloucestershire and saw a Dominatrix tied up to it. Personally I found it quite amusing and it's nice to see that people in my county have a sense of humour. But then this is coming from the girl who has 'Life's better under a Conservative' posters up in her front window.
