Sect 44 Stop and Search .... London, 1 in 100 .... Entering UK, 1in 3000!

Yes, that's right ... approx 1 in every 100 people were stopped and searched in London. Meanwhile only 1 in every 3000 people entering the UK got the same treatment.

The arrests total was 506 (none for terrorism) which equates to 0.49% but l can't find how many of the 506 were charged or convicted.

However, l can understand the very high percentage of 'whites' that were stopped (59%) because lets be honest ... if your were a policeman, would you actually want to stop and search a real terrorist? The terrorist will either be strapped up with explosives or armed ... maybe both. Seeing that he/she intends to commit suicide, l can't see him/her giving up peacefully.

l know this terrorist is only a bogeyman thought up by the security circus ... but our police seem to want to make sure and therefore avoid anyone who even remotely looks like a terrorist.
 ....  even more so at the borders .... too many damn foreigners!



  1. HAHA stupid infidels! I fart in your general diection! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

    I own shares in youe security industry! HAHAHA

  2. He is a fake! I am the real bin laden! He's right about the shares tho.

  3. The coppers stopped 500 people at local railway stations (where I live) and made them go through metal detectors, looking for knives and other weapons.
    They got 14 people for cannabis possesion (cannabis is metal?) and charged no one.

    Funnily enough, there were plenty of people in the article comments who were all for it. If it stops one terrorist etc etc...

  4. Interesting statistic there, Bucko. That at least 2.8 percent of random people are carrying cannabis at a random moment.
    And that's only the ones who enough unidentified metal to excuse a subsequent pocket search. Those among the 500 who removed keys and such from pockets before scanning, won't have had their dope found!

    It's obvious why the police are in favour of the fake terrorist panic. They've never had it so good.

    I'd far rather have an occasional terrorist outrage , than regular police intrusion.

    The sad thing is that, as you say, most people claim they don't have a problem with it.
    Some of those, of course, do actually have a problem with it, but daren't say so for fear of arousing suspicion...

    Given that there are so many sheep among us, it's a wonder that we have as much liberty as we do!

  5. Zaphod - Interesting. I never looked at it in the bigger picture like that.

    The sheep are getting their way. They constantly bleat that we should have less freedom; the government is only too happy to oblige.

  6. Sheep don't like freedom, it scares them. The more rules they have, the less they have to think or make decisions.

    But they want us to follow the rules too, cos they're worried that they might be missing out on something.

    "Don't break the rules, or the farmer's dog will growl at us!".

    Sheep need the farmer, and his dog. When the black sheep get harrassed, it gives them a warm glow inside.

    It's the same when someone gets stopped and searched. Those who object are black sheep, and deserve all they get!

    Like Smokey says, arrests are not charges, nor are they convictions.
    "Ah, but there's no smoke without fire", cry the sheep. "Probably got off on a technicality."

    Incidentally, SH, talking of technicalities, I've emailed you my latest letter refusing to pay parking tickets. Feel free to reproduce it, if it amuses you. :-)


"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
