Cricket bats and self-defence

Every Brit has the right to defend himself or his family, herself or her property. That right has existed for more than a thousand years.

That is why juries are so important. If the government believes otherwise, and erects statutes claiming otherwise, and hauls Brits into court for defending themselves, juries can refuse to convict because the statutes are unconstitutional. Indeed we believe the statutes undermine human rights.

Lack of knowledge about this has reduced Brits to using cricket bats as a weapon of self-defence rather than more effective instruments.

There you go again with a typical antediluvian theory: that people should be allowed to use more lethal weapons just to defend themselves against, rape, murder and assault. Truly peaceful people would ban the cricket bat too. What's wrong with a badminton racket? Better yet, offer these poor enraged folk a pint and a meat pie. Maybe they will be too full to beat you entirely to death.
