  • Replied in Isn't it great?
    ...that there is a country where the right to free speech is not abrogated, even to the point where a large group of people can peaceably assemble in a part of the capital that was rocked by ...
  • Ah, so a thinly-veiled paean to so-called 'FF' exceptionalism counts as 'content' now, does it?

    Standards are slipping fast. Formal tests are now minimal swipes at actual objectivity, and it...

  • Replied in Why?
    We have perfectly decent licensing that applies to any mechanical device that can be readily adapted to be used as a lethal weapon. Just as no-one who is unqualified to drive a car will be able to ...
  • Really? I lived through more than 30 years of IRA violence and terror attacks. I even lost someone to one of those bomb blasts. And yet, I don't have Cathophobia.
  • Despite this recent event, I still maintain that most UK police should not be armed. The police operate by mutual consent here. Granted they do not obtain the consent of those they have to arrest, ...
  • Keith Palmer (the officer who died) was a part of Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command. He would have been firearms and weapons trained, heavily CQC/CQB trained, and was ex-military. ...
  • Fine. If you or Mossad or anyone else know a good way to overcome a marauding attack like this without loss of life, I'd be grateful to hear it. We lost four people today, and 40 are injured. ...
  • Yes, I heard that. That's crazy, and probably due to spending cuts. The armed response team are on hand on inner ring duty, but this wasn't outer ring. New Palace Yard is inner ring. I would ...
  • Missed out the last paragraph, I see. Would that be on purpose? Situation awareness for anti-terror police is to stop the attacker by any means necessary. If the attacker uses a rush attack and you ...
  • We have been fighting terrorism on British soil for decades too. IRA, remember? And the detachment put on anti-terror duty more often than not are ex-soldiers who have seen front-line action. The ...
  • It's nothing short of the way they are trained to react in this situation. If the guy is running at full speed and they can't get a shot off in time, they are trained to obstruct and prevent ...
  • He wasn't alone, and he wasn't unarmed. It was a rush attack at one of the two guards patrolling a small park on the outer regions of the Palace of Westminster. They are some of the best trained ...
  • I disagree. We've successfully foiled dozens of similar plots in recent years, and continue to do so. The UK security services have a good track record on keeping tabs on terrorists, but sadly one ...
  • Haven't we had enough hatred for one day? It's bad enough that a terrorist decided to plough a car through people, killing at least two and injuring 20, then killing a policeman before he was ...
  • Ah, my work here is done!
  • No, my response was: "Since you started criticising any opinion contrary to yours as made up stuff, that's when." If you can't keep pace with us no-tails, I suggest you stop trying. If I voice an ...
  • I thought those were 'routine drills'? Personally, I agreed with Russia that those NATO bases contravened 1980s non-proliferation treaties, right up until it started escalating things by putting ...
  • The chronology is hazy, yes, but it seems Russia started moving troops to the borders with Poland after Obama told Russia that there wasn't going to be any missile presence in Poland. Then when ...
  • Since you started criticising any opinion contrary to yours as made up stuff, that's when. Only a powder puff can dish it out without being able to take it in return. Happy now?
  • The missile bases in Poland were a very bad idea. Bush set America up for a fall, and Obama's presidency went on to botch the job still further. No one exactly covers themselves in glory here. The ...
