May said the maps would
also be available as a smart phone ‘app’ so that busy professionals
could be paranoid and fearful between meetings.
She added: “When
you meet someone at a party you can ask what street they live in and
then nip to the loo with your iPhone before rejoining the conversation
and trying to work out whether your new acquaintance is a terrorist, a
fraudster or a predatory sex beast who is probably going to follow you
Meanwhile experts noted the map showed only three cases of
serious theft in central Westminster, but May stressed there was no
need to log those instances where MPs had given back some of the money

welcomed the maps with some planning to use them on terrifying leaflets
that will be handed out in pubs to women and weedy men with spectacles.
McKay, owner of CabCars in Stevenage, said: “These days with money a

bus full of maniacs that will only take them to end of their maniac
filled street. This will help enormously.”
Tom Logan, from Finsbury Park, said: “I really like living here so it’s good that the government’s ruined it for me.”
