“Mace”, Derby: bonce-buster

“Mace” burglar alarm, Derby • I once saw a real Tudor mace in a museum, and it was very scary indeed – a massive club that could bust your bonce with one blow. And these days, Mace is a generic term for tear gas and pepper spray, of the type popular for quelling civil unrest. So despite the atractive ceremonial crossed maces shown here, it’s not a weapon you’d want to get too close to. I found this sounder in Derby, so I reckon the firm behind it is Staffordshire-based Mace Security, though the logo’s now changed to something less martial. • Spotted: Town centre, Derby, Derbyshire, DE1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Derby South
