Maybe There Won't Always Be an England

From the Telegraph (U.K.):
Myleene Klass, the broadcaster and model, brandished a knife at youths who broke into her garden -- but has been warned by police that she may have acted illegally.

Miss Klass, a model for Marks & Spencer and a former singer with the pop group Hear'Say, was in her kitchen in the early hours of Friday when she saw two teenagers behaving suspiciously in her garden.

The youths approached the kitchen window, before attempting to break into her garden shed, prompting Miss Klass to wave a kitchen knife to scare them away.

Miss Klass, 31, who was alone in her house in Potters Bar, Herts, with her two-year-old daughter, Ava, called the police. When they arrived at her house they informed her that she should not have used a knife to scare off the youths because carrying an "offensive weapon" -- even in her own home -- was illegal.

Totally frigging demented.

The brits need to use the knives on their useless cops and government officials.

One more reason why I don't want to live in the UK.

Reminds me of a pro-gun quote I heard last year: "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away..."

Apparently the only form of self-preservation permissible in England is to "Run away!! Run away!" (quoting from Monty Python and the Holy Grail).

No wonder they're fighting a drinking problem over there...
(1) Depressed that Multi-Culti has made impossible the Free Speech of Free Men (not to mention any kind of self-defense), and
(2) Few Muslims frequent the pubs, so the ethnic British can get together, have a couple of beers, and wonder how-the-hell to get out from under the witless mandates of the EU.

EVERYONE in the British Government who had ANY part in aligning with the EU should be shot for treason.

Agreed; well, perhaps not shot, but the U.K. should retreat from the EU, returning the the sort of customs-union status Switzerland has.

If Attacked...

Now we know the answer in the UK, if there was any question...
