If Only Fiona Pilkington Had Set Fire To A Poppy Wreath...

...instead, she set fire to herself and her disabled daughter, after years of torment from scum.

As Tim Worstall points out, it could have been so different:
Because yes, even scum get the protection of the State from the mob.
Only if your face fits, Tim, only then...

Well pointed out.

I utterly despair of this country.

it's so brilliant the weaving together of two entirely different news stories, I get so much more information from blogs like this than reading the Sun.

People of Britain stop sleepwalking in a cat a tonic state with the MSM , start connecting the dots.

I'm off to watch the Matrix...again

If I was working as a cop now, what I would want to know on Fiona's case is how many 'putative' ones there are. I suspect the number is very high. This information might give me tools and help to do something about it.

No sign of this, is there, except a very bad report from HMIC and Cardiff University, telling us that anti-social behaviour is rife - like we didn't know.

After the Pilkington story got into the news, the police took care to make sure at least one family was protected as I recall.

Of course, there is always the chance that the police in Luton were only saying they were guarding the place as an excuse for some overt surveillance - but that's probably an overly optimistic explanation in this day and age.

Me too, at times.

"...I get so much more information from blogs like this than reading the Sun."

No Page Three though. Trust me, you wouldn't want that, in any case.

"...except a very bad report from HMIC and Cardiff University, telling us that anti-social behaviour is rife - like we didn't know."

I suspect general, 'one-off' sorts of anti-social behaviour certainly is. But the kind of repeated deliberate targeting of an individual that we see in this sort of case is very rare.

At least, I hope it is...

"Of course, there is always the chance that the police in Luton were only saying they were guarding the place as an excuse for some overt surveillance - but that's probably an overly optimistic explanation in this day and age."

Given their response to the FitWatch blog, yes. Yes, indeed it is...
