    ‘You’ve committed an offence, mate,’ said the policeman, ‘and you’d better get used to the fact that you’re going down for six months.’ Nicky Samengo-Turner on the nightmare he endured after being stopped for a random security search

    the UK. 'nuff said.

    But Agricola said that it was legal to take rational measures for your own self protection in Great Britain.

    This is obviously a fabrication!

    I can't believe that AngriCola would misrepresent England to us...

    This harrumph sounds like it came directly from an "Avengers" re-run:

    I gather the article is a true account. If so, it's a rather strange piece of journalism; it reads like a joint effort of The Onion and Kafka.

    Satire has gone the way of the Dodo on account of it being pretty much indistinguishable from reality these days.

    And do you think that cannot happen here? :uhoh:
    Lip off to a TSA guard as they fondle your female spousal unit while you put your shoes and belt back on at the airport, have your dog shot by the police as your kids watch while you're detained by the side of the road because you left your wallet on the roof of your car, etc.

    May we live in interesting times. :scrutiny: We do.

    In our country we can leave the airport and skip the fondling.

    We can also shoot back at the idiot cop who is shooting at us. (note to resident LEOs, I am referring to the corrupt and power tripping among you who are very very few and very very far in between, but nonetheless exist.)

    We have it a lot better than those in the UK.

    Now, I wonder what those idiot constables would have done if someone were transporting a fixed plate steak knife as part of a pic-nic.

    Power tripping arsehole authority figures are universal.

    From what I can remember over here, we aren't allowed pepper spray or even those little collapsible batons. Even if you intend to use it for defense, the nutters over here consider it an offensive weapon.

    Seeing as we've got a few WMDs ourself, could you please liberate us? I mean, we aren't allowed defensive weapons like you have. We're neglected by our government!

    The saddest of sad things is this approach to ''offensive weapons'' as bad news across the board. No differentiation between good guys and bad guys and as we know - the bad guys will always be ''tooled up'' regardless.

    So poor ol' Joe Public there is obliged to have the ''stiff upper lip'' whilst being defenceless ... or risk being jailed because he happens to have a halfways decent Swiss army knife on his person.

    I knew things were bad five years ago when I was still a 'subject' there - it only however seems to get worse ... As I have said before, I am all but embarrassed to admit my heritage. Thank heaven I never got found with my M27 in sho rig! :p

    Sounds like they have no right to refuse, or do they?
  14. As Babe Ruth might have put it,

    "It's deja vu ("1984") all over again."

    Remember, the allegedly "free" Britons have NO "constitution,

    and NO "bill of rights".

    Currently the "Liberal" party is proposing,

    no trial by jury for "terrorists".

    Problem is,

    how do you define who is a "terrorist"?


    happy homo east cost pediophile liberals look to the UK as a blueprint for the future.

    As the Babe said it well,

    "It's deja vu ("1984") all over again."

    Perhaps he should have said "NO" to any of the multiple queries for permission to search his vehicle. I'm not sure if it would have made a difference but, if I happen to be carrying a weapon of any kind in England and someone ASKS if they can search my belongings the answer is gonna be a big fat negatory. I wonder what would have happened then?

    "Great" Britain's government and society is absolutely FUBAR!

    Nothing short of a revolution could change things over there.

    I strongly encourage those few million sane and decent Brits, who are fed up with all that monkey business and repressions, to seek political asyl asylum in the "red" states of the USA, Germany, Finland, Czech Republic, Austria or Switzerland.

    In Germany it is perfectly legal to carry (with the exceptions of public festivities and sports events) pen knives or K-Bar "assault" knives, or Fairbairn-Sykes daggers, or other fixed blade or folding-blade knives.

    George Orwell was absolutely right! EngSoc is alive and well. :cuss: :banghead: :barf: :barf: :barf:

    There are a lot of Brits that are getting sick and tired of the ever creeping infringment of their rights. As in america there is a growing divide between the ruling elite class and the average person. Recently, when Ozzy subdued a burglar, there were many who completely agreed with what he did despite the fact that his actions have been outlawed by their "progressive" government. The reactions to this article. indicate that a backlash is coming.
  20. How do people stand to live under such a screwed up system.
