By Jove, sir, the Anglicans are restless today.

I warned them about the Coming of the Antichrist in 1974, but would they listen?!

I think it's true -- anyone can ring the police and threaten anything -- but I like a bit of intra-thread action to lighten the tone.

How so?

It's absolutely true.  Ramp up the fear and tell us the only way to keep us safe is to let them read our emails and listen to our phone calls.  It's not to keep us safe.  It's because we are their enemy.

Because it's what happens?

Twist in the frights so the morons clamour for more intrusion and handcuffs.  Look at the recent bullshit hoo-haa over lee rigby and Facebook.

Expect the Home Secretary telling us how more surveillance exposed this plot and even more would have caught them 4 months ago.

So, what, you're all for a kind of laissez faire attitude towards terrorism? That we're not in any danger whatsoever?

Germany has credible terrorist threats, but you just dont see the hysterical media or government reaction. There was an arrest of 5 last week and a long imprisonment for an ISIS combatant. Barely made the news, fear and terrorism are way down on the average joe's list. Also Germany takes more immigrants and asylum seakers than anywhere else in europe and its services aren't creaking. why ?

You certainly don't get cctv and apr cameras on every street corner and every building fortified and machine gun toting policemen and barriers everywhere.

I lost count of how many cameras I saw in London

The UK needs a serious reality check.

I live beside the district which housed the russian military intelligence and round the block from the Stasi prison. I don't think that Germany wants that kind of shit anymore.

Mmmm. there's no answer to that

I would point out, though, that the German police are routinely armed, the British police are not.

I don't think that having a few armed police in strategic places is going OTT.....and by the way the HK carried by the British police is NOT a 'machine gun' it is a single shot semi-automatic carbine

Yes they were and you know it. You are playing straight into their hands. Frightened of the muslims, you will willingly allow the government to put a camera I  your bedroom, read all your emails and go through your internet search history if they think it will make you safer, because you are the epitome of A Good Citizen, and you have nothing to hide. Everyone should be like you.

Just hope that once those structures are in place, that one of our future governments doesn't decide that ex-policemen are the enemy. Or people called Benetta. Or anyone related to or associated with them.

Because you've done nothing wrong,  right? Like the muslims. Only it's different for them because their skin is darker, and they smell of curry. And that bloody language! I mean, it's gibberish innit? I mean don't get me wrong I ain't not no racist or nothing, but they shouldn't be here in the first place, we should keep England for the English - BAN THE JE ... MUSLIMS! MUSLIMS FORBIDDEN! ONE COUNTRY! ONE PEOPLE!  ONE LEADER!

Yes german rozzers have pistols, you don't see anything else, not at airports, not at government buildings. I can walk up and touch the Reichstag here uninpeded.

Try doing that at the seat of UK democracy.

Oh and a fuck load of germans are armed and there is still no need for quasi paramilitary rozzers strutting the streets.

a HK is a big fuck off gun regardless of how pedantic you want to be.
