How very James Bond. But in this day and age I wouldn't doubt anything.

Well, I am certain the dog will be thoroughly checked, inside out so to say. Any chip would be detected, don't you think?

Besides the Sun says:
“Apart from looking a little dishevelled he is fine.”
It is thought Max, who had lost 3½lb, got stuck down a rabbit hole.

Not wearing a collar might have saved his life for he could not get stuck at the roots.

Princess Beatrice doesn't seem to be having a good few weeks! But I think she only has herself to blame for this one...

Maybe leaving the keys in the ignition was not the brightest idea.

I wonder what the chances are that her car has a tracking device?

Bummer. But wait, 15,000 in British pounds for that car? Doesn't that come to like $35,000 in US dollars (someone correct my exchange). What?! For that honking sedan that's all it cost? I'd think a BMW like that would fetch about $80,000 in US dollars. Are they cheaper Across the Pond or something? Wow! You can barely get a decent Toyota Camry for $35K.

I don't think her BMW is one of the best model. I think that price sounds about right.

I cannot believe she left her keys in the car--but, I guess that is what happens when one spends too much time partying and killing brain cells and not enough time in class. It's sad because it (rightly so) contributes to that public image of her being a ditzy party girl.

The pub owner said she didn´t look very worried, I suppose that is because there are plenty more where that came from......

Well, lets wait what kind of stuff she had left in the car: I wouldn't wonder if it had bags with photos or a laptop or something like that in it that will turn up eventually. Plus I wonder where they found a shop where you can park legally in front off....

I don´t think we are going to hear much about the ilegal parking....and I think if there are any criminals thinking of having a spree this would be a good time to have it, probably every policeman in England is looking for her BMW, (and her bodyguard is probably looking for a new position, even though it was probably not his fault, she probably parked and jumped out and he had to do the same). It does make one think what was in the car, losing things seems to be an inherited trait.

The price of that BMW is incredibly cheap.15000 pounds is about $25000 US.Even for the lowest series BMW which I beleive is the 3 series you'd be hard pressed to get it for less than $40000 in Canada and a little bit less in the States.

Here in Portugal the cheapest BMW of the same model is $36,750 US but depending on the model it can go up to almost twice that....

£15,000 is for a basic BMW series 1, with extras the price goes up to £228,415, all that without the personalised number plate.

If she did leave the keys in, that invalidates the insurance, at least she won't have to pay any fine for illegal parking!

If she had a personalised number plate it would make tracking it a bit easier. The papers said the key was left in it so no insurance Oh dear

If I open my car door and if the keys are still in the ignition, I get a loud beeping noise to alert me - and - I drive a Ford!
I cannot believe that a Beemer doesn't have that safety option.

The real issue here is the protection officer; the last figure I read was that her protection costs about 250,000 pounds a year--but if he lets her keep her keys in the ignition like that (as well as illegally parking) and the car gets stolen, well, is he doing his job to the best of his ability? If I were a taxpayer in GB I'd be pretty irritated about this.

I have a Ford, a Buick, and a VW and they all beep when I leave the keys in or the lights on. A beemer should have that option as well!
