All part of the BBC's smoke & mirrors (PR ) dept - These "Dildos" are exactly that, with no electronic workings, other than a vibrator powered by a battery.

Their news reports have the same accuracy, the BBC despises the population they claim to serve.

One has to question why none of these green devices has ever been video recorded in use by anyone uploading TV Licensing visits to YouTube and why nobody has ever video recorded their use from the street....
