Night of bloodshed in gun free London.

Oh, a shot gun not a machine gun this time.

Police in bullet proof vests. Are they unarmed as well?

Why, if there are no guns?

Wait, wait...the whole country is pulling a "Monty Python" skit.

They're snickering at our naivete...because we refuse to see their British humor of their silliness.

Honestly, no one is that sincerely stupid without the need of a lot of psycho tropic drugs, therapy (perhaps the temporary, but ugly necessity of a straitjacket) and maybe a lot of lemming-like leaping off the wide variety of cliffs in jolly old England and the other places like Wales, Ireland, etc...because in the unlikely event, they actually mean this knife business they're all bonkers and may as well do themselves a favor and leap...

When you have nationally funded medical services then it is in the government's interest that you should never at any time be injured in any way. In their ideal world all people would have to live in individual padded cells wearing protective clothing, be fed food that can be eaten without any sharp implements, in quantities that ensure no weight gain, should never be allowed to see or hear anything that might give them emotional stress

Man stabbed inside casino, airlifted from Trafalgar Square to the hospital.

His assailant was arrested by “specialized police”.

I assume that means police with specialized verbal skills in talking stabbers into peacefully surrendering.

Congrats, Noggin, you've just described "The Matrix". And the irony is, it's not Australian, it's British. ;-)
They've stopped teaching about the Magna Carta over there, haven't they?

If I ever go back to UK I think I might invest in one of these:

It would not stop a bullet (in UK the risk from blades is greater than that from bullets) but it might blunt a knife attack enough to give you time to either run or arm yourself with some sort of improvised weapon (stick, bottle, chair etc). It should be thinner than Kevlar and also "breathe better as well as easy to clean.

I am not sure if you people realise that in the UK, mace/pepper spray etc are classified as "offensive weapons" they are illegal to buy from any source. When I lived there I bought some Serrano peppers cooked them slowly on the stove for a day or so, then let them soak for another could of day before straining them through a filter and mixing the solution 50/50 with some cheap vodka (to prevent it going bad) then adding it to a small hand pump-up garden sprayer. I sprayed some in the bath tub and took a sniff - It was BAD and it was not even on Me. So with the sprayer in my left hand and my Army officer's sword in my right that was my home defense option in the land of no legal guns.

Serrano peppers?

OK, but Ghost peppers are a lot stronger, but maybe they weren't available?
