'The Beast'

The US Presidential limo offers all the security that is available but "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry" as was evidenced when 'the beast' fell foul of US security getting stuck while crawling a over a security speed hump at their Embassy in Dublin.

After the initial shock, bystanders saw the funny side of the incident but there is more to come with the 'three point turn' in Downing Street. Some interesting gestures from the guy doing the guiding!


  1. The dateline on your video insert (Wednesday, 1 April 2009) suggests that the 'Limo' incident took place during Obama's previous visit for the G20.

  2. Well spotted motuproprio. I've changed the tense to avoid confusion. Thanks for pointing it out.
