Defining priorities. Getting it wrong again.

Well it seems my comment that we are on the watch list for MI5 is true. And as we all have to be investigated they miss out on the real bad guys looks like it is also true.

Lurch at Gun Culture tells a story about how police officers discussed his blog at his firearms renewal interview.

He says 'It seems that my crappy little corner of the blogosphere has come to the attention of the police, and they don’t like it.' He is concerned that they may not renew his firearms license. Read the full story here.

So when these nutters finally manage to kill someone because MI5 have not got around to investigating them I wonder how many of us will be facing bright lights in some dingy dungeon because they didn't like what we have written on our blogs. Of course that won't be mentioned.just shortage of manpower, too many suspects. We need to change the laws etc.

Somehow I think that, yet again, we are setting our priorities wrong and when the government does this it does actually come down to life and death. This country is still drifting towards a Soviet utopia where controlling the people is more important than anything else.

Our ancestors must be spinning like tops in their graves. Giving their hearts, bodies and lives for freedom. Look at it now. It seems it was all for naught.

Giving their hearts, bodies and lives for freedom...

...but perhaps not armed to the teeth in peacetime.

These were realmen. Most of them were armed and able and willing to defend themselves.

Not likemost of the wimps in the UK now.

I'm not sure it is because they want to control everyone. I think they genuinely want to make us safer but don't really know how to go about it.

Snuffle, Can't agree. History has shown that it doesn't work but they keep on trying and no one can be 100% safe anyway. We all pop off at some tme with something.

It's them forcing us into what they see as an ideal society. Now they may justfy it in their own minds as for our own good but it is still force.
