Why, that's just the sound of your future getting sucked down the toilet, if you live in the UK. Pay no attention to it. Repeat after me: The state is good. The state is your friend. Individuality is bad. Single is bad. Join the State.
Or maybe, just maybe, you folks in the UK should look at what your government is becoming, and WAKE THE HELL UP!
You want less crime in the UK? How's this for an idea: Let your law abiding citizens own and carry firearms! Put criminals in jail, instead of poor schmucks who were just defending their home! Holy Hell, people! The fact that this is even being suggested should scare the LIVING SHIT out of people!
Thanks to Mrs. du Toit for the link.
