This may be a bit off topic, but I feel that your nation is on a really downward slide into total control and more crazy laws.
NO ONE respects and loves the British people more than I; Whether Scottish or Welsh or Irish or English, while traveling in your nation I was given
the most warm and sincere friendship by your lovely people while there. Uniformly polite, caring, generous and honest, I was always greeted with real
concern and shown the very best that your people can give. The British people are, I believe, more civil, socially concerned, giving and open than any
others I have ever met. You have endured hundreds of years of changing history with grace and dignity, have defended the rights of the downtrodden
worldwide, and deserve the very best government that a nation can muster.
Having said that, however, I must also say this: you allowed yourselves to become disarmed, you allowed the government there to install massive and
intrusive survelliance systems in virtually every area of life, down to your trash bins, and you seem to either trust the powers that be or at least
seem to believe that they have your best interests at heart, contrary to all evidence .You seem a bit perplexed and helpless to an observer; too
polite to raise hell and get changes, too timid to demand rather than request that you are the masters of your own destiny. Eternal optimism may not
be a desirable trait for your future.
We share a common fault: we trust too much and rely on those in positions to do something to actually DO IT to benefit us, and we are never
suprised when we are rebuffed again and again despite making our desires well known at the polls, etc. We assume that all will be well in the end and
that the people in charge are really patriots and only concerned with helping its' own people. That is a mistaken assumption and will lead us into
the same quagmire you are now in: Once rights are taken, they are NEVER returned. The average American at least has enough weaponry and ammo to make
it difficult, if not impossible, to make us a police state in the worst sense, and believe me, when push comes to shove the average American will lock
and load if it comes to defending the basics of our homes and lives. You all do not have that option anymore. You now HAVE to be a docile and
obediant population as only the cops and the crooks now are armed.
You are watched, taxed, listened to, measured and filed away in some database somewhere..the finest people in the world being treated like suspects
at all times by an authoritarian and uncaring elite. It is a crying shame that the nation that basically civilzed the world, that established new and
successful nations worldwide, that defines the very essence of intelligent and civil discourse in politics and business and has done so for hundreds
of years, is being sold down the primrose path to total control and subjugation of the people by the same globalist billionaires that are ruining my
country. What a shame. But at least we will be able to make a last stand and fight back if push comes to shove. And that fact may just be the reason
that we keep a few basic rights while yours keep getting swept away with each phony terror attack or govt. sponsored ' event '.
I fear for us all but remember that you are the cream of the crop of civilized humanity, you carry the banner, and when that falls, the world will
be a place I might not want to live in anyway. Good luck.
