“SecureAlot”, Hackney: greetings from Spamalot

“SecureAlot” burglar alarm, Hackney • These aren’t quite arrows – more like half arrows or lances, which suits a name that sounds like a comedy knight from Monty Python’s Spamalot. Sir Securealot the Bonkers Burglar Alarm, perhaps – mates with Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot and Sir Bedevere The Strangely Flatulent. The firm’s website has lots of phone numbers but no HQ address, so maybe they do indeed hail from Camelot. • Spotted: Mehetabel Road, Hackney, London, E9, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Hackney South and Shoreditch
