“MECE”, Camden: see me

“MECE” burglar alarm, Camden • Assuming this firm isn’t run by an ecstasy-chugging rapper called MC EE, the logo is intended to read “me see” – geddit? – and is thus, like yesterday’s iC, a “backronym”. What the letters actually stand for isn’t indicated on MECE’s website, though I did learn that it’s a huge 18-year-old company with offices across Europe, and loads of major clients including Eurotunnel, Cambridge University and the 2012 Olympics. Which makes it odd that I’ve only ever come across a couple of their sounders. • Spotted: Store Street, Camden, London, WC1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras

    • Well their head office is in Bredhurst, Kent – a town I have never heard of, let alone visited. Maybe it is festooned with their alarms.
