INTRIGUING IEDS ?

Sadly not the case in litigious USA where individuals and small businesses have been intentionally targeted to the point of bankruptcy for daring follow their principles and consciences.
If I personally attack someone, be it verbally, in print, social media, etc because of their skin colour, gender, legal sexual idiosyncrasies, religious beliefs, and so on, I will be called upon for my actions if it infringes on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But, it has to be proven that I did it with the intent of causing harm and that I was aware what I said was for lack of a simpler word, bad. For example, if I got pushed by a gent and said-watch it f_g- and he happened to take affront to that because he enjoys the company of men, I could end up in court. Only problem is I can turn around and say it’s a term of endearment amongst homosexuals, and the court cannot inquire to my orientation as it infringes on the right to privacy so the charge ends up going nowhere.
I fully admit my example is an oversimplification of the farce of what is happening here and I have no desire to put it to the test.

I don’t know if you’ve ever perused them, but I brought across the border a set of George Hayduke books as well as a US Army manual on improvised incendiary devices and the border agent didn’t give them two looks. There was a huge push at one point to get the Satanic Verses banned here as it caused followers of a certain religion to get their knickers twisted, didn’t work out for them in the end.

The place in work I regularly go to has big containers of Hydrogen peroxide stored outside.

As I have no hair, should I tell the cops that it's a terrorist factory?

To be honest it’s doesn’t really worry me in the slightest. The Canadian government, no matter which party is in power, has a habit of seeing their knee jerk laws that curtail freedoms get struck down when they make their way to the supreme court. Many so called social norm laws aren’t enforced because they will end up struck down in the long run, easier to pretend the law means something to make special types feel warm and fuzzy than have it tested and binned.
Apart from firearms legislation, even incoming govts who promise to end the RCMP control of registration always back away once the Civil servants have briefed them.

(Parts of) your Government have enacted laws compelling fairly rigid forms of speech in some social circumstances. It's as if Twitter has taken over the legislative process.
Parts of our Govt seem to believe the same way.

Will it be launching tins of Irn Bru?
No, well, not the full-fat stuff anyway. One has to be careful about giving sugary drinks to people now. Even if you're delivering them at several hundred miles per hour.

I was in a posh (for Glasgow) hotel having a meeting with coffee one morning. Absolutey gobsmacked to hear one of the attendees order diet Irn Bru.
I thought to myself, Urban elitist liberals have penetrated Strathclyde at last!
 
I find it deeply unsettling that a chap can be sent to prison for possessing public domain written material and a variety of perfectly legal objects, but without any evident intent to commit terrorist offences.

"Jenny Hopkins, head of the Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division in the CPS, said, “There was no reasonable excuse for him to have bomb-making and guerrilla warfare manuals. "

How about a "reasonable excuse" that he simply found them interesting to read in a vaguely walty manner, as do thousands or millions of other blokes? Indeed many of these publications are "military history classics" that have been sold for decades through specialist booksellers.

"Further searches at his home uncovered other items including a survival knife mounted on the living room wall, surveillance equipment, two smoke grenades, a drone in a rucksack, a telescopic lens, a camouflage tarpaulin and rolled sleeping mat plus a torch with a concealed knife."

With the possible exception of the two "smoke grenades", none of these items are unlawful in the domestic context they were found. Indeed, probably most of us have some or all of those in our own homes. e.g. WTF is a rolled sleeping mat a matter for the Police???

Unless this is a typical case of very bad reporting and/or Police misinformation, I'd see no justifiable reason why this chap was prosecuted.

I might be seriously screwed.

I had a serious interest in physics before joining up and later went on to get my CBRN qual - as a result I have a very good quantity of books and downloaded hard physics papers on the engineering of, and principles of nuclear weapons.

I see a dodgy dossier in my future...

Apparently it is now the law that you cannot even possess or view information likely to be useful to a terrorist without reasonable excuse.

(1)A person commits an offence if—

(a)he collects or makes a record of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, F1...

(b)he possesses a document or record containing information of that kind [F2, or

(c)the person views, or otherwise accesses, by means of the internet a document or record containing information of that kind.]
Thank God I no longer live in Britain, with the amount of stuff that I have I'd spend the next 100 years in a dungeon.
I have things like reloading guides, plus some Swiss stuff on resistance and home made weapons, a book on blackpowder blagged from the JHQ library and a copy of a US Army manual on various explosives, among other odds and ends.
 
Motor books in Charing Cross was the place to go for " research material of the kind likely to be of use to people planning more direct political action rather than writing a stiff letter to their MP "

Someone told me that I can't remember their name and I have no idea where it is or what they sell there, in any case I was on holiday when that bomb made of Vim and Vesta curry went off officer .

Oddly enough one of the lads I trained in 5 Queens (V) was arrested a few years later on explosive charges! He seems to have disappeared from the web!

He has probably gone into the Chiswick Underground as a soldier of fortune. If you can find him then maybe you can hire him as a member of the Z-Team.

The way they describe what was found in his house is a disgrace. You could go into any blokes shed or garage and find ‘weapons’ like hammers, axes, air rifles, pick axe handles, cricket bats, etc. There’s nothing in it.

It would be like them finding normal porn on his phone and then reporting to the public that he had indecent images on his phone. Indecent to show to your nan but nothing illegal or weird, but their wording would make him sound like a nonce.

Gutter press.

Totale Widerstand? A classic and apparently studied by Baader-Meinhof/RAF after they graduated from department store arson.
