I'm sorry OP, but this is nonsense. Also, you can have a gun if you want one.
If you think the government aren't scared of the people, you're crazy. They fear our democratic ability to remove them so much that they spend all
day long flip flopping on policies to appease the most people. When was the last time a truly unpopular piece of legislation was made? The Poll Tax?!
And look how that turned out.
I guess the ID Card/Database nonsense was the closest in recent memory, look how that turned out. I suppose you could argue that the Afghan/Iraq Wars
were gigantically unpopular - which is true. However, I think even you'd agree that sometimes bigger forces are in play than simple public opinion,
#ty as that is.
Anyhow, if you want evidence of the government soiling themselves in fear at the public's anger, look at the riots last year - and that was only a
few thousand people.
Brits might be polite and reserved, but good lord can we kick up a fuss when we need to.
