    Banning guns betrays singular stupidity on the part of government goons. Of course another motivation of those who lust for power is to disarm those over whom they wish to rule. It's turning bulls into steers -- slice, slice, off come the hangy-downs. Steers are easier to herd.

    Guns are inanimate objects. They are without mind nor possess motility.

    If I open the gate of my fence, my firearms will not run out and hurt anyone. Yet, even in my own home, I lock them and the ammunition for them in safes.

    Dogs have brains. They are animate. Dogs can be bred to be our servants, our friends. They can be bred to be latent monsters. However primitive this may be, dogs can think. I have on innumerable occasions watched dogs make decisions. I've rarely lived in a place where I wasn't surrounded by dogs.

    Our current dog is an English Shepard (we're going to get another, this one is aging-out; yet it still hears fabulously, barks when something isn't right; i.e. still has value and is well-behaved). This dog is as smart of a dog as I've ever witnessed. We have to spell-out words if we don't want the dog to know what we're talking about. I kid you not. Language? No. However, it's brain can sense the auditory "shape"/"pattern" of words and I think that many vowels get sensed in there between its ears. Intelligent as it is, will this dog do bad things? Yes. It is a dog. Many times, I can't bring myself to punish it. Why? It's a dog. It can't help itself. Sometimes the wife and I can't help but laugh when it does something a 3-yr old child would do. Life is as it is.

    It is a shame that we have to shoot mean dogs. In truth, those "humans" who bred those dogs to be pit fighters should be stomped and sent to prison. Cock fighting (popular where I'm from) is hideously cruel. I don't even begin to understand that sort of cruelty. Gambling, yes. Understandable. Gambling on death and suffering, that's well past sick.

    Roosters killing each other is bad enough (roosters do that naturally), but setting dogs against each other is a special sort of evil. Dogs have the brain-size to FEEL the depths of agony. And dogs are our friends -- should be. Whoever intentionally injures dogs and horses is dangerous to general society also. These are people who should be separated from civilization. Banish them. Put out their eyes. Let a horse stomp them. Turn pit dogs on them and let them feel for themselves the agony.

    Within a half mile of our home, I know at least two houses with fenced back yards holding pit bulls. There is no shortage of children around here, plus there's a nearby elementary school. Here in my office at home currently leans my .357 1892 lever. It is loaded with Underwood 158 gr cartridges (i.e. hotly-loaded / killer). In all likelihood it wouldn't be a human I'd have to kill with it. In addition to its survival purposes (would drop a deer, no problem), one core purpose is to nuke a dog gone turbo-mad. Pit bulls don't just go down when shot. Hollow-points out of a 9mm, might just make it angrier. Can't use a shotgun because you'd put lead into the human being attacked. Can't use a deer rifle, because after passing through the dog, the bullet would keep on truckin', thus put at risk people living in proximity. Therefore, short rifle or revolver loaded with hollow-point magnums. The bullet will dump most all of its energy into the mass of the pit bull.

    Online, there are gore-sites on which you can view people being killed by dogs bred to fight. Watched one last week. I'm NOT going to provide any links to that stuff. Fighting dogs lock onto to their victim and shake to rip the meat off the bone. They do not let go. Dog fighters use thick sticks to try to lever their dogs' jaws open when they are in kill mode.

    Out of a rifle, the .357 causes unimaginable damage to the toughest of muscle tissues and bone. Soft tissues explode. The hollow point bullet turns into a flat nose, half-inch wide, mushroom, with the bullet's copper jacket turning into a buzz-saw.

    Here's what happens to ballistic gel when hit with such -- note the massive hydrostatic shock. Note also the massive difference in energy transfer between the .357 magnum fired from a handgun and the exact same .357 magnum ammunition fired from a rifle. Underwood ammo is HOT, yes; however, other brands of .357 mag get super-damaging when fired from a rifle. The rifle's barred need only be 16' in length to bump the .357 up hundreds of ft./sec. faster than when fired from a handgun.






    Summary of meat and velocity testing:

    I agree re guns OG. In the wake of the very many recent stabbings in the UK there are renewed calls to ban knives. The problem with this that knives don't kill people, people kill people. Take knives and way and those with a mind to kill will simply use hammers, or whatever. Some years back a senior policeman from Manchester was berated for asking where we draw the line he said "we can end up using plastic cutlery but the offences will continue". He was, of course, right in this assertion.

    One of the key factors missed in "knife crime" issues is that every household has a kitchen equipped with knives and many "knife attacks" are simply with kitchen knives that have been taken out of their usual environment.

    the recent killing of the girl at the bus stop was reported to be done with a kitchen knife.
    of course terrorists seem to prefer machetes.

    Western civilization is now suffering from malignant spiritual illness.

    If a surgeon only put a bandage on a skin cancer, he would be committing malpractice.

    Cancer must be addressed with war-like treatments. Cancer kills. Eradication is necessary.

    Cleanliness must be returned.

    Pure bred pit bulls are certainly an officially recognized breed.

    Mixed breed dogs usually are the best pets. Pure-breeding often leads to defect-causing recessive genes pairing-up = bad health, bad behavior.

    One of my undergrad courses was "Genetic Counseling". That coursework involves a lot of statistics. Y'know, what are the odds of this couple producing children with specific genetic disorders. I've witnessed worked with a lot of kids, even adults, with these disorders. Many of these people do not live into adulthood, yet it happens. There's FAR more inbred, seriously defective, people who live into adulthood and breed ... passing on the junk genetics.

    I once saw a young man in an airport terminal who had Turner Syndrome (this syndrome is seen in females, however it can happen in a male; long explanation therein). The T.Syndr. fellow was wearing a Marine Corps. uniform. I guess they actually will take just anyone.
    .

    And as for this specific syndrome, me, I by-golly know that Turner Syndrome can happen in males! One huge developmental facility/hospital where I got clinical practicum hours had all manner of genetic anomalies to witness. Seizure-central, that place. Back in the bad old days (I was there to witness some abuses of the past), they'd put football helmets on the kids who had a lot of seizures so that when their heads hit the tables or the concrete, they'd not split their skulls.

    And now ladies and gentlemen, let's hear from PubMed!

    "Can Boys Have Turner Syndrome? More than a Question of Semantics"


    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34515231/

    "Individuals with 45,X mosaicism with Y chromosome material raised as boys are not diagnosed with Turner syndrome, a label restricted to phenotypic females. We sought to determine if boys with 45,X mosaicism had features consistent with Turner syndrome. ... Patients with 45,X mosaicism raised as boys appear to have features similar to patients with the same karyotype raised as girls. Routine screening of boys following the Turner Syndrome Clinical Practice Guidelines may allow early recognition of comorbidities."

    Old Gzr: If the comorbidities are there, then it's not just semantics!!!!!!!!! When you see this hell (to include heart problems and mental developmental issues), what the hell does any label mean?! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    A lot drug dealing related attacks are carried out with machetes. The recent scenes at the Notting Hill Carnival where a small group of thugs ran amok and were carrying machetes. A policeman told me some years back that the very first thing they do when they drugs raid somewhere is check behind the front door for a machete as it usually presages a drugs find (and, obviously, the possible risk of extreme violence).

    I think I might fear a machete more than a kitchen life.

    Some years back I watched a TV documentary about availability of knives to young people and they sent an undercover team to a series of garden centres where, at that time, a machete could be bought for as little as £7. Out of, I think, four garden centres only one checked the age of the young person who was buying, and that was because the shop assistant was under 16 and a Saturday part time casual worker (the machetes were haded tot he slice for destruction at the end of the documentary). This illustrates how easy it is to obtain a machete of one is under age. Additionally at that paltry cost they can easily become a "one use" item so, of course become difficult to recover from a crime scene.

    Ebay UK banned the sale of knives, try and buy from out of the UK and they block the purchase although UK knife stores still sell them; however most attackers use cheap kitchen knives.

    I've aquired a few knives/blades over time, F1 Falkniven, Alan Wood (Ray Mears woodlore knife), a few Mora and three Gransfors Bruk axes and Opinel locking knives but really in the UK I can't take them anywhere other than remote camping.

    The International Borg has assimilated the United Kingdom.

    If you want a machete, make your own. Start out with a lawnmower blade, then use a grinder to cut down to make the handle.

    I've 300 to 500 (o_O really don't know much o_O) pounds-worth of non-electric tools. They're scattered everywhere, vehicles, house, and work-shed. In the work-shed, I have a two teared roll-about tool-kit about 5 feet tall. Have boxes and boxes of spare nails and screws of various types and lengths. In the house, I've a toolbox of my Dad's and out in the den, I've a couple more. Here in the office, I've not even closed the dang thing due to having on-going projects about the house. Our oldest son -- crippled to hell and back -- limped into my office this afternoon to get some tools (hope he brings them back).

    Anyway ... defy Big Brother whenever you can. Do harm.

    This a real problem, most attackers are young people, most just pick up a knife from the kitchen dn, I expect, their mothers don't even realise they are missing.

    I can see why Ebay stopped sales of knives and, to be fair, that just means buying from specialist outlets such as Cyclaire & Heinnie, but at least they delivered to a responsible adult that way.

    I have the same issue, wrap them up, put them towards the bottom of my pack and take them remote camping. It shouldn't have to be that way but a small persistent group of criminals have made it thus and those of us least likely to use a knife as a "weapon" are most affected.

    If I don't have a pistol or revolver on me, I do have a lock-blade knife on me. This is for utility and in a pinch, self-protection.

    Good humans are valuable humans. Bad humans are useless or even dangerous left among good citizens.

    Good citizens in America are armed and do not hurt other people. Disarming decent citizens in the hopes of indirectly disarming evil inferior people is government abuse.

    Trash must be hauled away or burned.

    Self-defense is a core right, a core Liberty. Any government that denies its citizens the right to armed self-defense is invalid and must be overthrown.

    Those who use weapons against innocent citizens must be crushed, body and soul. Ban them or kill them. Put violent youth who do harm to others away in labor camps for at least a decade under deeply strict disciplinary conditions. If they continue to be dangerous after incarceration, then they must be put away forever or simply executed. Society is important. Their lives are not. Most are irredeemable. If imprisonment fixes them, hurrah. If not, goodbye forever.

    Post-SHTF, we'll need to simply have to shoot and kill them on sight. Looting / violence = death.

    the citizens here employ the Police to take care of criminals, we pay for this through are taxes, this original concept was good and worked for many years, all through my growing up and teenage years and forwards.
    the trouble is the Police of nowadays are run by university educated career senior officials who know little about real policing and everything about theory, they are Woke, BLM knee bending and wear rainbow flag badges to show how "inclusive" they are instead of getting on with the job of Law and Order without "fear or favour", the lower ranks can do nothing but follow their orders if they want to keep their jobs, goes for any occupation I suppose these days.
    I used to respect the old fashioned Coppers growing up and even into my 20s and 30s but not the modern Policeman, I wouldnt trust them an inch, especially with some of the examples we have had in the last couple of years, the wrong types having been getting into the Police Service.

    "When seconds count, the police will be there in minutes."

    Cops do as much as they can do, they're not omnipresent and nobody in their right mind wants them to be. If the police can make it to a bank robbery in progress and stop this aggression against the bank, then HURRAH! Police put themselves at risk when arresting aggressive criminals. This is why we arm them with chemical sprays and guns. Police make arrests AFTER the crime has been committed for in almost all cases, the crime has already been committed and the criminals are on the run. When the police arrive, they are often the ones who call the ambulance for the injured citizen who was unsuccessful in their own defense.

    Being attacked, every individual has the core human right to defend themself with an effective weapon, a gun or a knife. Liberty is sacred.

    It is we to whom law enforcement must answer. We must rule over our government. When leaders in government lose their fear of the people, then it's time to replace them by any means necessary. The initial step is to attempt to vote them out. We hope that matters need go no further than that. The individual states have their own militias manned by the armed citizens of each state. This is written into the American Constitution. People having physical power is the ultimate vote. "If you can't protect it, you don't own it."

    Respect, fear, and power are entangled entities.

    A deed to property is a piece of flammable paper. A deed and a gun is property ownership.

    Good citizens should do a better job of hiding their concealed self-defense knives.

    Laws that prevent self-defense are invalid laws.

    If an attacker gets cut or killed, then don't report the incident to the police. Let attackers bleed to death. The loss of this genetic trash is a benefit to society.

    Hopefully as economies collapse, government gods won't have the money to pay goons to enforce these invalid laws. England was invaded by bureaucrats long, long ago. Deep state functionaries do more harm than bands of thieves. Governments around the world need to be gutted and hung out to dry.

    Knives are age restricted to buy online nowadays. There is a photo ID scheme and many suppliers use this (in fact Heinnie who Max Rigger mentioned does this). Also on arrival proof of age is required via driving licence/passport before the courier will hand it over. They also require a signature.

    It is a fairly robust, and fully traceable system.

    This wearing of rainbow patches and taking the knee stuff needs to be curtailed. By acting int hat manner the Police are showing themselves as partisan and they should always act in a neutral manner. If they display political preferences they cannot be seen to act in a neutral way. If, for example. a white guy was accused of attacking a black guy and the arresting officers were wearing BLM badges a good defence lawyer would, probably successfully, argue to a court that the police had not neither fair not just in the handling of the arrest and evidence gathering.

    "Watch: Mob of pro-Palestinian protesters chase Israel supporter until police step in "

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/20...ian-protesters-chase-israel-supporter-london/

    "Vahid Beheshti, an Iranian dissident, claims one of the people who allegedly threatened to ‘behead’ him was later arrested."

    --------------------------------------

    "Moment lone man carrying Israel flag is chased and surrounded by pro-Palestinian protesters while others trample on flag in street - as Suella Braverman warns anyone 'glorifying terrorism' and 'mocking murder' of Jewish people: 'the police are coming' "

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...Braverman-terrorism-murder-Jewish-police.html

    "A lone man brandishing an Israeli flag was chased down a London street and surrounded on Saturday by furious pro-Palestine protesters after two women were spotted with images of paragliders stuck to their jackets in an apparent reference to Hamas militants.

    "Dramatic video footage shared online showed pro-Palestinian protesters' anger boiling over as they were seen trampling on Israeli flags, before the man with his own flag had to be encircled by police officers for protection.

    "It came during nationwide pro-Palestinian rallies on Saturday which saw thousands take to the streets of cities including London, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and Bristol.

    "A few scuffles broke out at the otherwise largely peaceful demonstrations, which were marred by the pictures of paragliders and a separate incident in Glasgow in which a woman was filmed shouting: 'Don't forget where the Jews were in 1940.'

    "Footage recorded outside the UK's Foreign Office showed a lone man with an Israeli flag running from dozens of pro-Palestine protesters before he is knocked to the ground.

    "One person appears to be shouting 'submit' as the man, who wears a black coat, scrambles to get on his feet again and pick up his flag."

    -----------------------------------------

    "Man Carrying Israel Flag Chased Down by Mob of Pro-Palestinian Protesters in London"

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...ing-israel-flag-chased-down-by-mob-in-london/

    "Vahid Beheshti, an Iranian activist who opposes the radical Islamist regime of the Ayatollah in his home country, was mobbed and chased by anti-Israel activists during the large demonstration in the British capitol this weekend.

    "Footage from the incident showed at least one of the protesters carrying a picture of former Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a drone strike ordered by former President Donald Trump in 2020. Others can be heard shouting at Beheshti, accusing him of being a 'murderer'.

    "He went on to claim that one of the protesters threatened to 'behead' him and that the individual was later arrested while in possession of a 'large knife'.

    "Speaking to The Telegraph, Beheshti said: I would not call them Palestinian supporters, I would call them Hamas supporters, and Islamic Republic of Iran supporters, because they were carrying the picture of Qasem Soleiman, they were carrying the pictures of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Iran’s current ruler) and saying ‘we love the Islamic Republic of Iran’.

    "Beheshti has had a fatwa put on his head for demanding that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) be listed as a terror organisation in Britain and recently embarked upon a 72-day hunger strike to protest the IRGC.

    "He said that the incident will not deter his activism, saying: “I came here to have my freedom of speech and my basic human right. I am not going to censor myself in the 21st century in King Charles Street in front of the Foreign Office in the UK."
    --------------------------------

    The following video was conducted prior to Vahid Beheshti's being recently chased-down and attacked by the mob supporting terrorism.

    carrying any flag at the moment will get one into trouble, better to be low key and not get noticed.

    "BBC Under Fire as Journalists Appear to Praise Hamas Terror Attacks on Israel"

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...ear-to-praise-hamas-terror-attacks-on-israel/

    Begin quote

    The BBC has come under heavy scrutiny as its own reporters have been accused of supporting the Palestinian terror group Hamas in the wake of deadly assaults on Israel.

    Britain’s publicly-funded broadcaster said that it has launched an “urgent review” as several reporters for BBC News Arabic — which is funded by the UK public through the television licence fee — appeared to praise murderous Hamas terrorists as freedom fighters.

    For instance, according to The Telegraph, BBC Arabic correspondent Sally Nabil liked a post on X (formerly Twitter) that praised “the Palestinian resistance taking an initiative and surprises the Israeli occupier with an operation of quality”. She also liked a comment on a video of a truck loaded with kidnapped civilians that described “A proud scene”.

    Another example saw programmes editor at BBC Arabic Nada Abdelsamad repost a video depicting Israelis hiding from Hamas with the caption: “Settlers hiding inside a tin container in fear of the Palestinian resistance warriors”. The post also featured the Qur’an reference hashtag “promise of the hereafter”, which has been associated with the complete destruction of Israel.

    Responding to the apparent breaches of the BBC’s impartiality guidelines, a spokesman for the Camera Arabic campaign group which monitors news coverage of Israel said: “These revelations about BBC Arabic employees go hand in hand with the outlet’s ongoing conduct during the war. The BBC has repeatedly whitewashed the practice of targeting Jewish civilians in Israel even before the current escalation.

    ======================

    Here in the States, the Left loves "direct action" operations. Democrats are socialists but deny the socialist / Big Brother component. At least the Democratic Socialist Party comes out and says that they oppose capitalism and U.S. Constitutional government. I believe that British socialists are somewhat honest also. They state that they oppose the nation of Israel, oppose capitalism, and support terrorist groups when those terrorists are not actively killing civilians.

    What we do

    We are a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters, DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

    Strong Labor Movement

    Capitalism pits us against each other and workplaces are fundamentally authoritarian unless workers can self-organize and build collective power. This is why people build unions, and why employers undermine them. It is also why the capitalists as a class constantly promote narratives about unions that frame them as unnecessary, undemocratic, or ineffective. We know better, and we’re building worker power in every region of the country.

    DSA Stands With UAW Workers

    DSA stands in solidarity with the 150,000 UAW auto workers in their contract fight against the Big Three Detroit car makers — General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis. As of midnight, Ford Michigan Assembly Plant (Final Assembly and Paint) in Wayne, Stellantis Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio and General Motors Wentzville Assembly in Missouri are on strike. Workers in other plants will continue working under the expired agreement, with no contract extensions. Future timing and locations of strike targets will be announced by the UAW based on progress at the negotiating table.

    I am not at all sure of Israel's response, or even how they might recover the hostages, but the Hamas attack was a terrorist attack. Surely that should be acknowledged?

    Yes, I do. Too left wing and woke. They deny it of course but it really is how they have become.

    The BBC never refereed to the IRA as terrorists. Calling the IRA or Hamas terrorists could be seen as showing bias.

    Being a Yank, I am not very knowledgeable regarding the IRA. Did they attack civilians, women and children? I was under the impression they attacked military and government targets.

    This is a timeline, lots of military but they had no problem killing civilians too. After 9/11 when the American people saw terrorism on their soil the 'Irish Americans' stopped donating to the 'good old boys back home'

    I don't disagree but. sadly, It's usually not the dogs, but the mentality of some those who own them that needs banning. So often "dangerous breeds" are owned by young people who think of them as a fashion accessories or status symbol, and they are simply the "wrong" people to own dogs.

    To give a positive example of a "banned breed". Years prior to the breed being banned a friend of mine had one. He was a very responsible dog owner, the animal was always pristine, fed on the best foods. He and his wife subsequently had two children, there was not a single incident with the dog, My friend was strict with the dog, and took him to training classes etc as any responsible dog owner might.

    One summer when the little boy was about three, they forget to put th eons out and the bin men, in al helpfulness opened the rear gate to get the bin but, not not shut it quite properly. My friend realised within a couple of minutes that the little boy was missing, naturally a huge panic ensued and he ran around the streets searching for the lad. The boy was only about one hundred yards away, but so was the Akita, just sat quietly next to the boy keeping an eye on him. So, not all dangerous dog breeds are always dangerous.

    most of it is down to the owners, like you say status symbols and a lot are owned by drug dealers and gang members or just stupid owners.

    "London Metro Police Threaten People Displaying British Flag With Arrest For 'Racism' "

    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopoliti...-people-displaying-british-flag-arrest-racism

    "In a scene reminiscent of the BLM riot events in the United States, white British residents of London are being admonished and in some cases threatened for displaying British and UK national flags during pro-Palestinian protests. London metro police are warning people carrying these flags that they might be construed as 'racist' and that this will be treated as grounds for arrest.

    "The flag on display in the video is the Cross of Saint George, a flag that represents the UK but is also connected with the crusades of the Middle Ages. Flying UK flags in the face of Muslim protests is seen as anti-immigration sentiment. It should be noted that a majority of the UK and European public has become increasingly anti-migrant in the past decade. Mass Muslim immigration and open border policies have led to an exponential spike in property crime, violent crime and rape, not to mention an increasing drag on European economies.

    "A two tier legal system has become commonplace in the UK, with migrants given considerable allowances for protest as a protected class, while indigenous English people are more likely to be prosecuted for similar behavior. Multiple incidents in London alone have been reported of pro-Palestinians attacking anyone carrying British or Israeli symbols.

    "Some argue that this constitutes a violation of free speech and a slippery slope towards Orwellian controls. "

    "Labour in crisis as 23 councillors resign over Keir Starmer's stance on Israel - with MPs said to be calling for him to clarify his position"

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...Israel-MPs-said-calling-clarify-position.html

    "Sir Keir suggested Israel has 'the right' to cut off power and water to Gaza during an LBC interview.

    "Sir Keir Starmer was last night facing a deepening crisis within the Labour party over its position on the conflict.

    "Some 23 councillors have resigned over the Labour leader's stance, while furious MPs – including frontbenchers – are said to want more clarity.

    "A parliamentary source said: 'Over the past week, Starmer's team started the fire by ignoring prominent MPs sounding the sirens around the LBC interview.

    " 'Privately, Muslim MPs were furious and vocal with the leadership. Council resignations are continuing and the traditional vote bank has, in just a fortnight, collapsed.'

    "Lynne Jones, who represented Birmingham Selly Oak for 18 years, left the party last week in protest."

    ---------------------------------------------

    Here in the States, we're also having problems with socialists in Congress. They too are cozy with Palestinians even after Gazan civilians paraded and cheered Hamas for their most recent intentional terrorist attack on Israeli civilians.

    When a 77 year old lady needs a body-guard due to her being Jewish and for having stood up for other Jewish people, then something has gone wrong with civilization.

    The paragraphs I include from the following article only deal with what's happened to actress Maureen Lipman. Other actors and actresses are also included in the article, so read the full article to get the full story.

    Old Geezer is put off by the article calling her bodyguard a "bouncer" and a "henchman". I'd pay good money to see whoever wrote this article to say those words to the man's face. I'd videotape what occurred next and sell copies -- everyone would want a copy of that beat-down.

    https://www.thesun.ie/news/11586376/maureen-lipman-security-guard-rising-anti-semitism/

    Quote

    VETERAN Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman is shadowed by a burly security guard while filming on location — to protect her from any possible anti-Semitic attacks.

    Dame Maureen, 77, who is Jewish, had her every move watched by the minder in Manchester to ensure her safety as tensions soar in the UK and abroad over the Israel-Hamas conflict.

    We told last week how the show’s bosses were providing actress with security as anti-Semitic attacks rise — and follows her criticism of other artists who have spoken out against Israel but not the terrorists of Hamas.

    Maureen, who plays feisty Evelyn Plummer on Corrie, was stunned to be offered a minder but said at the time: “This is where we are now.”

    Maureen — who famously starred as the proud granny in the late 1980s BT “he’s got an ‘ology’” adverts — was smiling and chatting with her henchman, as our pictures show.

    The source added: “Maureen seemed quite happy and didn’t look downcast or fazed by the situation.

    “She was chatting and even joking with her bouncer and other members of the Corrie entourage.

    "UK sees huge jump in antisemitic incidents after Hamas onslaught on Israel"

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/uk-sees-huge-jump-in-antisemitic-incidents-after-hamas-attack/

    Begin quote

    The Community Security Trust said it had logged 89 incidents in the four days of October 7-10.

    That is more than triple the 21 incidents during the same period last year, it said.

    CST said the tally 'is almost certain to increase further as we receive more delayed reports of incidents covering this period.'

    The CBS said that in many of the British anti-Jewish hate cases “the perpetrators of these disgraceful incidents are using the symbols and language of pro-Palestinian politics as rhetorical weapons with which to threaten and abuse Jewish people.”

    Six of the 89 incidents were physical assaults, three involved damage to Jewish property, 14 were direct threats, with 66 cases of abusive behavior including 22 online.

    Among the online incidents, many were “pile-ons,” involving multiple antisemitic posts or comments on the same thread or conversation, CST said.

    Some incidents included death threats, the group said.

    There were also 65 incidents not logged as antisemitic that included “criminal acts affecting Jewish people and property, suspicious behavior near to Jewish locations, and anti-Israel activity that is not directed at the Jewish community or does not use antisemitic language,” according to the CST.

    "Jewish Families ‘Targeted’ by Pro-Palestine Mob While Leaving London Synagogue"

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...palestine-mob-while-leaving-london-synagogue/

    Begin quote

    A mob of so-called pro-Palestinian protesters swarmed a Synagogue in London amid an anti-Israel demonstration on Armistice Day on Saturday as Jewish families reportedly sought police escorts to help them flee to safety.

    Footage posted on social media on Saturday showed the synagogue on Abbey Road in St John’s Wood, north-west London beset by groups of men waving Palestinian flags, green smoke flairs and shouting as cars fled from the Jewish place of worship.

    The Campaign Against Antisemitism said on social media that it had received “multiple reports” of Jewish families being “targeted” by anti-Israel activists during Saturday’s demonstration.

    “Naturally, the Jewish community is terrified. We are aware of Jewish families being targeted on their way out of synagogue and have received multiple reports of police having to escort congregants away in groups for their own safety,” a spokesman for the charity said.

    The Campaign Against Antisemitism went on to say: “The placards today bore slogans and imagery that would not have looked out of place in Nazi Germany.”

    Old Gzr: Were I a gunshop proprietor, I'd currently be giving discounts to Jewish people. This shop, if it had shooting range, I'd cut my instruction fees by half (one still has to pay the electric bills and taxes, else it would be free).

    The Cross of St. George is the ENGLISH flag not the UK flag.
    and those guys carrying the Union Jack were Tommy Robinsons "far right" counter protest who were arrested by the Police for violence on Armistice Saturday.

    Really pees me off. I've been trying to sell some antique German daggers, bayonets and the like from WWII but am unable to in Australia, as it is classified "illegal" to sell them now. Every time I tried to put an ad in anywhere, it would get taken down. What the flock am I supposed to do with them? Technically if the cops happened to visit and saw them, I could get arrested.

    As a British para, my husband did a lot of tours in Northern Ireland in the 1980's. His hatred for the Irish was nearly on par with his hatred for the Japs after that. Recounted some of the worst atrocities and lost a lot of good men. (Not quite on the same level as Rhodesia as far as atrocities from my understanding, but still up there). It started primarily as military but many civilians were also killed as the years rolled on.

    They were a product of the fighting after escalation. But primarily, civilians weren't specifically targeted.

    From memory, I think only around 500 or so civilians ended up dead, which in the scheme of things, isn't that many.

    Thanks Blitz. That was my understanding about the IRA. I can certainly understand your husbands dislike for them, being a Para and having friends killed by them. To this Yank, the IRA was primarily a military resistance group and would not be classified a terrorist organization by today standards. The HUMAS is a terrorist group, plain and simple.

    In the UK such items can be sold with antique and antique military dealers. They are well used to ealing with items that the owners would not necessarily realise were illegal and as part of the sale process would store them for sale in a legal manner and sell to people with the appropriate permits etc ensuring that the seller is not placed at risk of law breaches. My suggestion would be to get online and see if you can find someone in Oz that deals in antique weaponry etc. Re-enactors groups are a good place to start as they often have recommended suppliers. (Do be cautious as I know someone that same across a handgun when clearing a house and rang an antique arms dealer for advice. It was explained to him that, as he had made the dealer aware, he had to either ell tot he dealer or hand it in to the Police, risking prosecution, as even knowing something is illegal and handling it in the UK is an offence)
