Where else but in the UK?
Amazing.
Remember, they gave up the right to protect themselves.
We need to never let our guard down.

A father has been arrested on suspicion of murder after allegedly stabbing to death an intruder during an attempted burglary at his home last night.
Mr Cooke was home alone at the time but his wife, Karen, and their son returned during the altercation and were able to escape unhurt.

The UK has seriously gone looney. Its damned if you do, and damned if you don't! What kind of nonsense is this: people defending themselves, and their homes are arrested on suspicion of murder?!?!
How do the people in the UK put up with this kind of crap? Have they completely given their testicles to the state? Where is the British spirit that peresevered through the Blitzkrieg?

This is the fate in socialist states when individuals give up personal responsibility to the State, which in turn promises protection. But such protection is a myth. Control is the key issue here. Brave New World exists in the UK.
We must be constantly on guard to insure that the same doesn't happen here.

"Britain Seeks Ban On Pint Glasses"

Alex Knapp · Wednesday, September 30, 2009 · 5 Comments
As part of their ongoing effort to cement George Orwell's reputation by making him the most accurate prophet in history, the British Home Office is now investigating the possiblity of forcing every Pub in Britain to replace pint glasses with plastic pint cups:

The BBC reported recently that the British Home Office is seeking a new design for pint glasses that it hopes may reduce the number of incidents in which people attack each other with pint glasses. According to official statistics, 5,500 people are attacked with glasses and bottles every year in England and Wales. (Probably lots more in Scotland, though maybe they just use swords.) This public safety emergency has spurred the government into action, seeking a design that cannot be used as a weapon.

Designers say they are considering two basic approaches: (1) plastic, or (2) something else. First, glasses could be made from plastic, or could be coated with it so that the glass would not shatter into sharp pieces if broken. Second, "[w]e could do something more radical," said one designer, "by looking at the whole shape and substance of the pint - we could come up with something that is completely different [from] glass." Seems a lot like the first approach, and it wasn't clear what he had in mind. But he continued: "Remember that years ago people used to drink out of pewter tankards. It could be quite a significant paradigm shift." That's a great idea - I'd much rather be clubbed to death with a pewter tankard.

As Cory Doctorow notes, this is an essential piece of legislation

Because, you know, most bar-brawlers are fundamentally upset at the pint, not the people around them, and if they can't smash a pint sleeve, they will contain their anger and not use a chair, bottle, or imposing scarred forehead
