Downing Street has said that it will do everything possible to prevent a repeat of the murder of Ann Maguire, as it emerged that the teenager accused of stabbing her is a fan of a violent video game marketed with the slogan “prepare to die”.Wow, talk about a golden opportunity to insist schools have metal detectors installed at their gates along with cctv, or a ban on video games and joy of joy for the anti-alcohol brigade to propose increasing booze prices way above what ordinary folk could afford. There's even the opportunity to blame rising divorce rates for a cycle of violence in society too.
A 15-year-old boy was still being held on suspicion of murder on Tuesday night as police said questioning him “may take some time”.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said that “of course” the Government would look at any “lessons to learn” from the murder at a school in Leeds.
The boy is known to have become withdrawn after his parents, a civil servant and a human resources director, separated 10 years ago.
He is said to have turned up at school with gin, Jack Daniels whiskey and beer in his bag on various occasions.
Whilst I'm not saying any of this will happen, you can bet your bottom dollar that some hysterics out there will already have their prepared spiel about why xxxx was responsible for Ann Maguire's death and why we should do xxxx to prevent it happening again increasing the surveillance and/or increasing the sheer bloody misery of society where just about anything we can say or do is monitored or covered by legislation and there's always someone out there who believes we need more, more control, more surveillance, more taxation penalties, more censorship, along with less rights, less freedom, and less knowledge of what's actually going on.
There was a recent survey done which found out that we were amongst one of the unhappiest societies in modern times, our happiness index was quite low and politicians etc were scratching their heads as to why.
Perhaps it's because they have removed or restricted our basic freedoms by law or taxation including the ability to resolve situations ourselves by speaking our minds that we're so unhappy, it's quite the thought isn't it?
What happened to Ann Maguire was a tragedy, let's hope that those with agendas don't end up making it worse...
