    Well you would think so given that farmers and gypsies are pretty much the only people in Britain guaranteed to own guns. The problem is that gypsies literally have nothing to lose and the police are terrified of them.

    One local police force issued a directive to its personnel that they were only allowed to use the police's high end Range rovers to arrest gypsies, because it was insulting to them to be arrested in a car with a lower retail value.

    The police also routinely disarm land owners involved in disputes. As most farmers are law abiding and have the correct certificates and permissions the police know how many guns and of what type they have, you have to declare each weapon purchase or transfer to the police. So they can turn up they do a run down of their list and make sure they've confiscated all the weapons you own. So the landowners end up without police support, disarmed and facing a foe that is armed, aggressive and believes itself, with some justification, to be above the law.

    No magic to the oar, old fruit, the facts of life are conservative.

    When your hamlet gets electricity you'll probably start to appreciate the benefits of progress a bit more.

    On the original subject, the guys in the original video seem unlikely to hurt each other, unlike this guy:

    They really aren't. Reality is intreniscly entropic. The status quo is a useless anchor point. Your great grandchildren will barely be human as you use the word.

    My crush on JohnnyCache is threatening the very structural integrity of the rep system.

    The Irish phrase "I'll fight you for a 1 Pound" springs to Mind. I heard that a few times in my early years.

    It was meant as well. Although not as malicious intent. (Oddly).

    Trailer-living squatters with bad teeth who will fight at the drop of a hat? In the states, I'd wonder if they were cooking meth.
