all sorts of lunatics are going on gun rampages - first Derrick Bird, now Raoul Moat. You have to go back to John Major's government and Dunblane (and Huntingdon under Thatcher) for the last episodes. And it's only been just over two months since they were in power.That's even more speshul than the last lot, especailly the reference to Huntingdon rather than Hungerford but what's 130 miles between friends huh?
Crime always rises under Tory governments, it rose steadily from 1979 to 1997, and looks like rising again. It's a combination of Tories cutting back on the police while at the same time causing stress in the population at large, which always tips those at the edge into violence.
Yes it's so self-evidently true, Derrick Bird wasn't bitter about some family feud over inheritance causing him to flip, nor was Raul Moat a nutter with a fetish for extreme violence, oh no! It was because the Tories caused them stress tipping them over the edge into violence!
