Lawmakers call them "bastards" for it.

news.independent.co.uk/uk/media/story.jsp?story=477413

Cliffs Notes: Listeners to BBC Radio 4's Today programme asked to suggest a law to improve UK quality of life, MP would then attempt to get it onto the statute books.

The winning suggestion was they be allowed to defend their homes from criminal intrusion with "any means".

Lawmaker says "The people have spoken....the bastards." and calls the idea a "ludicrous, brutal, unworkable blood-stained piece of legislation"

Ha! Now they want to be able to defend themselves with force? Where were they when they banned almost all of the guns, took away the right to defend yourself, banned all pocket tools with knives unless required for your job, and are working on banning toy guns?

I wonder what Mr Pounds reaction would be to someone crawling through HIS window? "Come on in and I'll show you where Mrs Pound keeps her diamonds"?
