The UK: More Americanized Every Day

Fresh off the news that the UK has slunk behind the US in child welfare comes this story.

A former British National Party election candidate who stockpiled explosive chemicals for use in an anticipated civil war in Britain boasted that he would shoot Tony Blair, a court was told.

Police raided the home of Robert Cottage, who held "strong views on immigration", and found 21 types of chemicals which could create explosives when mixed together, along with a 300-page computer document called the "Anarchy Cookbook", which detailed how to make different types of bombs. Four air pistols and a number of crossbows with ammunition and ball bearings, which the prosecution claim could be used as shrapnel for explosive devices, were also seized.
