The mind reels

February 14th, 2011

And the spine softens, the will shrivels, the soul deadens, and dignity and national pride pack up shop and head for the nearest available exit, chivvied by jackals to the very last humiliating step.

A spate of thefts in several towns and villages in Kent and Surrey over the past few months led to many householders taking action to protect their property.

Some have been warned by police that using wire mesh to reinforce shed windows was “dangerous” and could lead to criminals claiming compensation if they “hurt themselves”.

Last month Samantha Cullum, a mother-of-three, of Brasted, near Sevenoaks in Kent, had her whole shed stolen when thieves lifted it on to a lorry.

She said: “We had some tools stolen every now and again, but this time they took the entire shed – I couldn’t believe it.”

Dave Bishop, of Tatsfield, said: “The law is so stupid, and you never know what decision judges are going to make. People do get fed up with these people trying to help themselves to things which you have worked hard to gather together.”

And yet they sit back and do nothing, docilely taking it again and again and again until they’re so thorougly reamed, steamed, and dry-cleaned as to be no longer worth further buggering. Which, when even a means of “defense” as feeble and pitifully passive as wire mesh is forbidden, you’re pretty much there, mates. What could possibly be next, an ordinance banning the locking of doors nationwide, so as not to cause housebreakers any mental distress by making them feel unwelcome? As Treacher says:

These people withstood the Blitz. They faced down Hitler. Now they can’t even defend their own garden sheds.

Has there ever been a more pathetic, unworthy decline in history? Hell, at least the Romans had some orgies and fiddle music while their once-mighty city burned. If the Blitz started tomorrow, Londoners would all be singing “Deutschland Über Alles” with tears streaming down their cheeks as they all bravely pitched in to help knock down London block by block, so as to spare the Luftwaffe any unnecessary trouble or anguish.

Sheesh.

    That is just sad. The whole system there is truly ass-backwards. And, you are right that they just seem to keep a stiff upper lip while doing nothing. I guess it comes of being subjects more than citizens. Very sad.

    A society of sniveling helpless victims - the result of a people that allow their government to confiscate all weapons of self-defense, with the empty promise that the same government would insure their security.

    Let's all leave our guns on the curb to be collected by the Dhimmicrat utopiates, because we trust our government to protest us.

    And yes, I made up the word utopiates.
