Terror arrests link to PM threat

These guys haven't got the gist of "democratic society" yet, have they? If you disagree with Government policy, you use your voice, not plastic explosive, to register your disapproval, and to change the political direction of your selected homeland. Even the brighter cro-magnons in PIRA realised that eventually.

Notwithstanding their choice of targets in this case (which were actually pretty rubbish, as I doubt that a high percentage of the population would care too much about Brown or Blair - think of the Windsor Castle fire and the public reaction, but consider the 'prestige' angle) I do think that the treason laws need a scarifying, levelling and grading. Murder of a Government official/representative of any kind should attract a signally deterrent sentence. I'd go on, but be bound to be accused of medievalism or something.

The trouble is, that this sort of nonsense is going to carry on unless there's a fairly radical counter to it. Sensibly, what's that going to be?

Hope so, but there has been a number of questionble conviction of the most fantacist Moslems which do make you wonder, such as, downloading literature from the web, or four blokes having a bullsh1t conversation etc.

My first reaction on seeing this Thread was: sh1te - they've finally arrested the Lord Flashheart!

My SECOND reaction was to look out the window and make sure the local Plod's Armed Response Unit was getting ready to storm the house...

Frankly, and as long as there is no collateral damage, I could give a fcuk about politicians getting slotted.

"Murder of a Government official/representative of any kind should attract a signally deterrent sentence."

WTF? Doesn't their salary reflect that part of their job is to be a moving Fig. 11?

Anyone attempting murder of a politician should be jailed for a very long time, though.
(It would serve as a reminder of the price of failure to those who follow in their steps).

What about the very, very few who actually do represent your opinion? And those who're servants of the state, such as police, soldiers, nurses etc?

I've had a couple of MPs who were outstanding, and I know of a fair few "Government Officials" (including military people) whose assassinations went against my sense of fair play.

The Chinese established some sort of 'protest park' in Peking to accommodate the loons who disagreed with their policies on torture, execution etc; Larry Niven wrote about a similar idea where no normal law was enforced ("Cloak of Anarchy"). Neither worked. What will?

Errrrr, is expressing a desire to see Brown dangling from a lamp post a crime then?
I think I might be in bother.
Not sure how that would all work in Court considering the crimes he is guilty of.

I think a large number of us are in trouble. Like everyone who posted in the "coup" thread.

Yeah. If anyone thinks that a bit of internet chat is the basis for a prosecution then they deserve the CPS we have. I doubt very much whether a team of Columbos have been despatched to Finland on the basis of a line of snaggle-toothed Islamic wisdom on some Bradford-based public opinion board.

Unless I'm very much behind the times, a bit of evidence is required.

Bummer.
As from now I shall only post on Arrse from randomly chosen internet cafe's in towns some distance from where I live......

As Whiskeybreath points out, I would really hope a bit of internet vitriol is not sufficient grounds for being arrested under terrorism legislation.
On the other hand it does seem to be used for anything your local council see's fit to persue you for

The fundamental question here; is there a courtroom in the land with a big enough dock for all of us?

If so Regina versus Arrse should be a laugh.

“…and I put it to you that the reprehensible threats made against the Right Honourable Gordon Brown MP (and Tony Blair and Geoff TCH Hoon and……..) are sickening in a civilised society. What possible justification could the assembled defendants have for these heinous actions?”

The Arrse spokesperson (Flash) retorts: “ Because he’s a treacherous, one-eyed lying cnut Your Honour”


Case dismissed and the job’s a good un.

The Most Henious Crime ever in the wonnerful world of Nues Liebor Zanuf-Pf Party today is to shout ..."Booo...!" or... "Rubbish...!" at one of our Lie-Bore Ministers when they get up on their hind legs to spout b*ll*x at the New Lie-bor Party Conference each year....

So watch out for the up and coming Lie-Bore party Conference in a few weeks time when the silly season starts again in earnest.... that reminds me, I wonder what earnest is doing there....

...There are 2 things that are in abundance in the Universe. One is Hydrogen... and the other is.. Stupidity.. 8O . But not necessry in that order!!

Like Nessie, UFO's and female virgins over the age of 14 in Glasgow - I've heard such things exist but never actually seen one... :twisted:
