Life in the New Labour Reich

From today's Daily Mail:

"Having installed himself in his local pub to watch England play India, John Vaughan was enraged when the channel was switched over to football just as the cricket was reaching its thrilling conclusion. So Mr Vaughan lit a cigarette in protest. When he refused to extinguish it, staff pressed a panic button behind the bar. And a few minutes later six riot police officers, wearing protective gear stormed the pub."

Sarcasm:

I can't possibly see how that response to lighting a cigarette in a pub is less than a perfectly reasonable moderate response. I mean the fellow literally threatened two or three people around him with 2nd hand smoke. That may have killed them.... maybe...

sarcasm off

They have got to re-instate flogging and the stocks for stupidity of this magnitude. Riot police? For God's sake what is this world coming to.
