In the future, food will be consumed using tubes. Forks and knives are too dangerous.

Well, food mushy enough to eat through a straw is pretty much the definition of British cuisine anyway.

Star Trek blade seized
By MIKE SULLIVAN
Crime Editor

THIS five-foot martial arts sword capable of beheading a man was recovered by shocked cops in a house raid.
The terrifying Batleth weapon is identical to one wielded by Klingon aliens in the Star Trek sci-fi films.

Officers seized the three-handled sword — which has huge pointed blades at either end — at a home in Gloucester.

It was shown yesterday at the start of a five-week national knife amnesty. Cops hope 30,000 blades will be handed in, with owners free from prosecution.


Local Insp Mac McGarry wielded the sword, which he said had been sharpened to kill.

He said: “It is a particularly nasty weapon which could easily take someone’s head off.”

Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker launched the amnesty in St John’s Wood, North West London. He said: “We are determined to get the scourge of knife crime off our streets.”

But Victims of Crime campaigner Norman Brennan, a serving cop, branded the initiative a “futile PR stunt”.

He said: “It is likely to be supported by the law-abiding public and not those who carry knives for criminal activity.

“Knife crime will only get worse if we don’t introduce a five-year mandatory sentence for anyone carrying a knife.”

THE Queen’s grocer Fortnum & Mason was fined £2,000 by Horseferry Road Magistrates in London for selling a knife to a child under 16.

Right. I can't wait to see these fucking morons arrest boy scouts. That's going to be a milestone of stupidity.

When will people realize that the problem is people attacking each other and not the available weaponry?  Another article I read recently suggested that this will stop violence connected to Britain's "drink culture".  Seems to me that you can mess someone up just as well with a broken beer bottle, but then I guess they will ban glass bottles next.
