World's Dumbest Chauffeur

Royal Mess: Chauffeur Reportedly Gave Secret Palace Tours

The News of the World says Brian Sirjusingh was paid $1,600 by its reporters in exchange for access to the building.

Once inside, he showed them several vehicles used by members of the Royal Family.

One was even allowed to sit in a Bentley used to transport the Queen on state occasions.

Strict security measures are meant to be in force at the Palace.

Even members of the Royal Family including Prince Charles must show photo ID each time they enter a royal residence.

Surjusingh apparently boasted of how he underwent a year's special training to prepare him for his job.

He thought the reporters, who he had never met before, were wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen.

According to the News of the World, he spoke indiscreetly about the Queen's movements, giving away confidential security details.

A spokeswoman for the palace said: "Any security matter is taken very seriously and we will look into these allegations."

Overall, this was my favorite part.

He thought the reporters...were wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen.

No cause for concern there, just let them roam around the Palace.

Stupid AND greedy. What a combination.

This is not the first time. Remember when that man was sitting at the foot of Queen bed when she woke up, saying he was lost?

Their security at the Palace is a literal joke.

What a dumb cluck, tar and feather him first, then kick him in the nuts, then fire him.

but PRINCE CHARLES has to show ID!

You can't make this stuff UP!

Bryan said...

Don't you wish ignorance was painful?

Chuck said...

Cube, the man gave up what is probably a good, cushy job for possibly years in prison.

Flavor, I was thinking the same thing. This reflects as much on the security as it does this idiot.

MK, that about sums it up

Z, life sure is stranger than fiction isn't it?

Bryan, that would fix a lot of societies problems

Maybe if the guards weren't mannequins... wow. Do they use the same valet attendants from Ferris Bueller's Day off?
