They are so peaceful they even have restrictions on bbs and airsoft guns. They just let Her Majesty's police protect them! God save the Queen.

They are planning restrictions on kitchen knives and box cutters........because it is the inanimate object and not the person that is responsible

The question is when will Cricket bats be regulated so that you have to store them at the field and only check them out when it is your turn to bat, have a background check each time the bat is checked out, be licensed to bat and all the other "common sense restrictions".


People have been killed in course of Cricket games going back to 1648! The Carnage must Stop! Now! (sarcasm face on

I don't see a L&CR discussion issue here.

No topic for discussion was raised, no question asked, so this is closed.

Check the rules about drive-by threads.
