All a bit security theatre isn’t it?
When do we get the TSA prodding our bollocks as we enter a concert hall?
As I’ve noted before I’m not all that worried about terrorist nutters killing some few of us. Yes, easy to say as it’s not me howling at the skies in rage at the theft of my children.
But what do we want, 65 million subject to pass laws and id cards and communications interception and the state, that Courageous State, still failing to protect us or the sacrifice of handfuls of us over time on that altar of secular freedom?
I’ve always worried much more about what government might do to us to stop the bearded nutters than I have about the nutters themselves.
Not being a brave man I’ll not try asking those whose faces are still shining from the tracks of their tears. But I will ask you.
