Facebook Party the British Way

If you live in the UK, beware big brother is watching you everywhere even on Facebook! A 30 year old decided to invite 17 of his friends for a little BBQ using Facebook on his private property. What he got was four police cars, a riot van, and a helicopter. All in all, 8 police officers in body armor and camouflage shut the party down.

Then again, maybe the police thought they were dealing with one of these Facebook parties, which only took 70 officers to shut down.

Damn, if this keeps up, we might have to start speaking to each other, again.

Lovely government they have over there. Or is the word farcical?

Here again, England is leading the way to a totally authoritarian state. The rest of the Commonwealth and the US are only a few steps behind.

Well after all Britain IS a fascist state. What do you expect from an outfit that has more cctv's in operation than all the former communist countries?

I don't know what is more depressing; the Big Brother state of the UK, or the kids who hosted the party bragging about how it cost the police (the tax payers) 10,000 pounds, how "wicked" it was and their plans for their next party.

Might be time for the red pill and some kool-aid.
