Yep, it must be election time again.
There'll be a frantic rush to see who can "sound" the toughest on crime.
Better than nowt, I suppose.
But, what I really want is for them to recognise thatit is not within the remit
of any politician to "grant" me the right to defend myself, my family or my neighbours.
They have the audacity to make a recognition ofmy rights into a Party' virtue.
BTW, I see that there are rumblings of a British Bill of Rights. I read Jack Straw's proposed Bill ( Labour 2007-2008) and was mightily un-impressed. It comprised mostly of facilitating the access to Welfare and
had a great, big get-out clause..."we can completely ignore this Bill if we so desire"... I paraphrase.
Anyway, Labour and Straw have dropped any such pretensions, now.
But, will any such Bill of Rights reflect what we Citizens' want? Or, will it be a sanitized document handed down to us by our betters?
More than anything, we need to get these issues into the MSM and stimulate debate within the UK. God only knows how we can achieve that.
