They May Take Our Lives But They Will Never Take . . .

Guy Herbert recounts his life of crime, in which he inadvertently violated several British laws in the course of a single morning.

If things like this can happen on a sunny spring day under the eyes of the armed police and surveillance cameras protecting our diligent legislators, then no wonder the government is ‘cracking down on crime’ for the several-dozenth time in its Serious Crime Bill. If people can communicate and have social intercourse just as they like , without a license or the fear of prosecution, then there could be chaos.

Quite.
