Drones cripple Gatwick airport during busy holiday season.

Police decide to shoot drones down, but can’t locate a rifle.

No that didn’t happen, the can’t find a rifle part didn’t happen. But I’m sure the decision to use gun violence against a drone had to come from the PM at least.

shotgun or line-throwing device would be safer way to bring down a drone in a densely populated area. Or jamming the drone's control frequencys. Or crash your drone into their drone. They've had a few years to figure this out but apparently haven't done so.............

Didn’t get permission to use violence against drones after all. Used 20 million dollar high tech van which located a couple, who were arrested.

Hmm. Really turned into a police state story. Couple realeased after 36 hour interrogation.

The Gatwick incident demonstrates how completely inept they are at fighting actual crime. After days they couldn't figure out who did it or if anyone actually did it and arrested some people who didn't do it.

Mom arrested by police detained for 7 hours in jail for referring to a transgendered woman as a man.

Apparently that’s now illegal in England.

Devout Catholic mom of 5 to be interviewed by police or face arrest over wrong pronoun to trans.
...when the pair continued the debate on Twitter that resulted in a six-month-long police investigation.

Mrs Farrow, a mother of five with strong religious views, allegedly used the wrong pronoun when referring to Ms Green's transgender daughter.
