I’m a Brit, they’ve been doing this for a while but as bad as the creeping nanny state is concerned, I’m more scared that the police where dancing at the pride festival while at the same day 2-6 people were stabbed, mismanagement is horrendous, my dad told me that the government sold a plot of land they new they where building a road over for £15,000, they then bought it back 3 months later for roughly £350,000, imagine how incompetent it is if Corbin gets in

Easiest solution, give them to your American counter part and allow them to publish them for you.

To be fair, the police in the UK have been tasked with patrolling social media for offense and have taken to it whole heartedly. The officer making the statement was just following his programming... As ye sow, so shall ye reap.

Britain is becoming a socialist country when a private citizen can be arrested for free speech and say something like there is only two genders or the hero who stopped the two knife wielding Muslims killing people near parliament is arrested and sent to a reeducation camp the two Muslims get no jail time and gets money from the government and their victims get absolutely nothing Fuck Britain

Sharia compliant Britainistan is now unrecognizable from its former greatness. The political correctness adopted to deal with the immigrant influx and perverted sexuality has put a lie to the leftists claim that all cultures are of equal value and social progress is a benefit to society. There is no going back from the insanity and Britainistan is Great Britain nevermore.

It's officially a secret that our ambassador was a stupid jackass who liked to badmouth the leader of the nation to whom he was an ambassador. In other news, the police in the UK are derelict in their duties and abusing their powers at the same time—but SHH, don't tell anyone!
