Well that's just 'fine and dandy'

"Come in Mr Burglar, help yourself to anything and make yourself comfortable. Don't worry about my girls and baby Grandson who are sleeping, they won't mind you taking a tour around my house. Ignore my little yorkshire terrier Lulu, she is not vicious.... but I would like you to meet my cat Callie who IS scary and feral" :gun:

Makes me glad I don't live in Great Britain.  They are insane with how they deal with people breaking into your home.  The laws protect the criminals.  It's absolutely insane.

I know! I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this one! Suppose we should just put the kettle on and make a nice cup of Earl Grey tea for the burglar :whistle:

My pug isn't much of a attack dog. He's kinda got a sock-puppet mouth. Lips get in da way. He'd more than likely cute them to death.

No guns, no dogs... call the cops and wait for what? 15-20 minutes? WOW.... I'm an American and I'll keep my guns and my unfriendly dogs close by... To live in a nice world where love and flowers and butterflies abound is a great idea but in practical practice... NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

If I hear a suspicious noise during the night I send Mrs.Ealdwita to reconnoiter. The sight of her in her nightie, curlers and her Make-me-look-like-Cheryl-Cole face cream, is more than enough to send dedicated squads of SAS and Spetznatz into full bowel-loosened retreat! The last time it happened, three would-be burglars begged me to set the dogs on them!
I'm going to buy Mrs Ealdwita a riding crop to thwack you with ,every time you every time you mention her on UM.



Miss me?

LOL, smarty pants!

This law is absolutely sill, IMO.

Britain pretends not to be Europe. As far as I know in all other European countries, as long as there is a warning on the gate and the dog has its rabies shot (where rabies is predominant) he may bite any trespasser.

When did British folks stop using common sense?  Or is this just an example of political idiocy being forced on the majority?  As for the treatment of intruders - I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

  Imagination is the power in the turn of a phrase.

There's no 'pretend' about it QM. It's only our politicians who think we're Europeans, (and that's because they see the possibility of a nice, cushy retirement job when they get their a***s kicked at the next General Election!)  ...........Off-topic, sorry.

I've never fancied living in Wales.

And this daft law is making it even less likely that I'd ever live there.

Anyway, anyone who breaks into my house will have to worry about more than receiving a poxy dog bite.
