You usually get some kind description of suspects when they’re arrested but all we’ve had from the Drone arrest is “a man and a woman” to keep us guessing. My money is on a couple of Julian Assange type libertarian twats who refuse pay parking fines because of the Magna Carta.
I wish I'd taken your bet now.


Where are we now on this debacle? The last I heard the drones might not have even existed.

Apparently Sussex police flew drones over the airport looking for the unauthorised one(s). And have now conceded that some sightings may have been of them.

Tory MP’s Facebook account part of Tommy Robinson group

The account of Andrew Rosindell, 52, MP for Romford joined a “Free Tommy” group backing the former leader of the English Defence League after he was jailed for 13 months in May for being in contempt of court.

Seeing stuff like this makes me glad we're signed up to the ECHR through the Council of Europe, and it's nothing to do with the EU.

Also, while you can derogate to a certain extent from certain elements of the ECHR, some elements - most obviously the prohibition on torture - are always non-derogable.

I wonder if that Tory twat whose name I forget now will object to this one on principle?

Chris Chope will doubtless find himself incredibly busy at that moment.

Books on shelves...
I know I'm a Metropolitan Lefty Remainer Over-educated Soft-Handed Feministy Soy Commie Cuck, so this is expected... but no books on shelves? Not one?

Peasants.

Ahem.

(In all seriousness, unusually incisive observation for a Tory)

Not so sure that books not being visible from the front door proves their absence from the entire home.

Perhaps I am being overly pedantic and he was speaking metaphorically. That then suggests that they primarily get their information from media brands. Leaders amongst which are the mail and the BBC.

If we open the door you won't see a single book. At the last count there were something like 4,000 scattered around the rest of the house.

Whether or not you can see them is immaterial. The possession of books (far from being universal) is an indicator of cultural capital and has a direct bearing on matters such as educational success, critical thinking and progressive views.

My unscientific observation from canvassing is there is a correlation between shelves of books and not voting Tory. They haven't always been the stupid people's party but Powell, Thatcher and Farage changed all that.
