Ah, how I love British newspapers. Following what happened in London today, I see this gem in the Daily Telegraph (nuttier than the Times, less so than the Mail):
“Make no mistake Britain will almost certainly have to sacrifice some of our ancient legal rights if we wish to protect our citizens.”
“Make no mistake”? Well, I’d sure love to get a look at their tea leaves. No-one else yet knows how the bombs were planted, by who, or why – yet somehow the Telegraph knows, to a certainty, that sacrificing our ancient legal rights is _clearly_ the way to go about stopping this happening again? Well, they’ve convinced me. Why don’t we all go get a copy of Magna Carta and have a bonfire? Yeesh.
