Odds and sods - Credit unions plus man has sex with bike

Some good news (and some justification for a New Labour government) : The government will ease restrictions on credit unions to encourage growth in the sector and ensure the public has a viable alternative to banks for loans and savings.

I find this story utterly baffling. A man has "sex" with a bicycle, ok so far, so normal, though I quibble over the phrasing (was the bicycle a willing partner? courted with flowers and candlelit meals? roughly seduced?). Anyway he does this in the privacy of his locked hotel room, then a pair of nosey-parkers use a masterkey to force their way into his room, catch him in flagrante delicto, then "extremely shocked" inform the hotel manager, who in turn informs the police. The man in question, the bicycle-seducer, a Mr Robert Stewart, was duly charged - and convicted - of a sexual offence involving an inanimate object. Stewart has also been placed on the sex-offenders' register. The preceeding two sentences, are, in fact, scandalous. Convicting a man, and worse, placing him on the sex offenders' register for having "sex" with a bike is bizarre. I very much doubt the bicycle was traumatised by the experience.
