Steyn: An Englishman's home is his castle dungeon

From Mark Steyn, on another example of how far the hapless Brits have become mired in submission to their government:
The motto of the Canadian Mounties is that they always get their man. The motto of the British police is that they always get you. Frankly, it's a lot easier:
The TV presenter and Marks & Spencer model Myleene Klass has been warned by police for waving a knife at teenagers who were peering into a window of her house late at night.

Klass was in the kitchen with her daughter upstairs when she spotted the youths in her garden just after midnight on Friday. She grabbed a knife and banged the windows before they ran away.

Hertfordshire police warned her she should not have used a knife to scare off the youths because carrying an "offensive weapon", even in her own home, was illegal. [emphasis added]

Klass's spokesman, Jonathan Shalit, said the former Hear'Say singer was "utterly terrified" by the intruders and "aghast" at the police warning. "All she did was scream loudly and wave the knife to try and frighten them off," he told the Sunday Telegraph.

Is screaming loudly still legal? Or is that in breach of Health & Safety regulations? ...

Read it here. This is what happens when the people lose both the spirit and means of armed rebellion. The second typically follows the first.

It's hard to imagine anything short of direct action by the few remaining courageous Brits (are any still left?) against their government turning this around. Unfortunately for them, without guns and the will to use them the chains of their own slavery will likely bind them to their graves, absent the intervention of better men than themselves. When the Brits surrendered their guns they removed the ability to implement a kinetic solution to their enslavement, and extinguished any hope of remaining free men. Let's pray we Americans never make the same mistake.
