In a statement issued last night the London magistrate who calls himself Bystander on his widely-acclaimed blog announced an indefinite moratorium on use of any simile involving radar. Suicide bombers 'were not on our radar' or something 'disappeared from the radar' - tired old clich├ęs, all of them. Every newspaper uses the R word several times a day, and it must stop. Now.

The only permissible use of the R word in future will be in connection with aviation, speed traps and weather forecasts.

Blog readers are asked to note any further occurrences and to post them on the comments section, in order to shame the perpetrators.
