Theresa May’s Britain

Where the foxes caper unmolested, the government packs your school lunch, and only in Canada*you say?

A 78-year-old homeowner has been arrested by murder detectives after a suspected burglar he fought with in his own kitchen died of a stab wound. The pensioner was upstairs asleep with his wife when he was woken by the two men breaking into his suburban home…

  1. So what’s a little murder charge on a 78 year old going to impact, he wasn’t going to use that screwdriver for anything good at 2 am now was he? The UK cops certainly aren’t going to go after any real criminals, those guys fight back. The cops are putting enormous effort into keeping this 78 year old locked up, almost as much effort as a UK politician will expend searching playgrounds for their next date.

    Yet the real body count on the london streets rises and khan shrugs his shoulder’s. I guess people dying on the street is just part and parcel of life these days, but burglars getting murdered while on the job is ‘hitlerian’ and must be stopped.

    1. the police in this instance need to be arrested and then paraded before the populace with big signs around their necks saying they are stupid.

  2. As Steyn says, in the UK everything is policed but crime. In this case it sounds like justice administered by a citizen is considered the offense. When citizens are nothing more than state chattel, only the state can pretend to defend them as police can only deter and clean up the scene after the fact. Without the right to self defense there is no right to life.

  3. I assume it would have been OK if the fellow had stabbed the intruder with a screwdriver?

    Of course, it would have to be the same length of screwdriver as the burglar’s, not one of those sawed-off ones…

    And don’t forget the bit – watch for those Phillips and Robertson (street slang “squarehead”) models – only registered carpenters should need those types.

    And what about those hollow-handled ones with multiple quick-change bits! OMG!

    We need a registry….

  4. If they convict a 78yo I’ll bet they have a parade for him in the joint.
    Hell they should have a parade for him in his home town!

  5. Utter insanity.

    I think we can safely assume that if the intruders were white and the homeowner was a muslim immigrant, there would be no charges.

  6. This old guy deserves a medal.
    Too bad he didn’t kill both of them .
    All involved with his arrest are absolute cowards.

    1. So, has the state moved in to care for his demented/handicapped wife? Is she in the care of the NHS, a certain death sentence?
      Indeed, just like Canada.
      This is so screwed up…

  7. The proper term for what happened to this 78 year old citizen of the UK, is,Anarcho-Tyranny

    A-N-A-R-C-H-O T-Y-R-A-N-N-Y
    Look it up on Google

    We need to start using this term
    It describes exactly what is going on in all western countries

  8. If there is one thing bungling government bureaucrats (unfortunately that would now appear to include the police) hate, it’s competition. While giving the shrug to criminals, since arresting them is hard and makes it difficult to drive up the statistics they need to please the higher ups, they’ll attack like screaming banshees a private citizen defending themselves since that private citizen’s act of self-defence shows up the bureaucrats for the spineless, useless deadwood that they are. It’s beyond pathetic.

  9. I recall that case where he fired warning shots…none of the perps were injured (unfortunate that), and it is Ian defending his home and property that gets Absolutely SCREWED over.

    One wonders if a guy is alone on his property up North somewhere in the West and a Grizzly decides it wants in, you shoot it – kill it. To protect your property and life…are they gonna charge for unlawful use of a firearm…?? if not then I would be tempted to throw that in the face of the POLEECE…when they arrive a day later to do a body count

    WE absolutely need The right to defend our property, our Family and our lives without fear of the GESTAPO losing their shit. It may be written somewhere, but not that I can see it. Nor is it evident in the response of ALL Canadian Police in these matters – to their Shame and Detriment….IMO

    To me this is an Inalienable BASIC HUMAN RIGHT – To survive.

    1. The most basic human right is the right to defend yourself against a predator, whether that predator in animal or human should be irrelevant. If your life is endangered you should have the right to use what ever means necessary including fire arms in self defense.

  10. There’s a reason it is called “criminal law”.
    Conceived by criminals.
    Drafted by criminals.
    Enacted by criminals.
    Enforced and “administered” by criminals.
    Purely for the benefit of criminals.

    Cynical? Moi?

  11. What would make the most people the angriest?

    Trump sending his personal lawyer army?
    Koch brothers sending theirs?
    Conrad Black (he IS a lord after all)?
    All of the above sending all the lawyers on the planet after the British government?

    Well, not ALL the lawyers; would not want Jagmeet or Lizzie screwing it up for this guy…

  12. Britain needs a “stand your kitchen” law, in the same vein as Florida’s “stand your ground” law. Sheesh. Now it is considered “excessive force” if you happen to WIN the fight for your own life?

    Whoever arrested this pensioner … should be brought up on charges himself.

  13. And the police wonder why we have little respect for them. Notice the huge number of forensic unit officers, regular police, cars, vans, tents and all sorts of crap to charge a 78 year old pensioner for stabbing a crook along with another criminal breaking into his house. They are charging this old guy with murder, are you serious!


  14. I understand the screwdriver was improperly stored together with its breech block and ammo. When will this insanity end?

  15. naturally the susvictimspect must, MUST express ‘deep remorse’ for his ‘crime’
    or face imprisonment until they release him in a pine box.

    I plan on spending roughly 1 or 2 yrs traveling europe when I finally put my place on the market, but ye olde angland is NOT on the itinerary. not now.

    &^#$^#*#$*$&#%% cops. are they infested with muzzies and criminal gangs too ?????
