UK Authorities Accused of Inciting Illegal Protest 371

jarran writes "Questions are being asked about the tactics being employed by UK authorities to monitor and control protest groups. Schnews reports on evidence that government IP addresses are posting messages to sites like indymedia, attempting to provoke activists into taking illegal direct action. Evidence has emerged recently that the police consider sex to be a legitimate tool for extracting information from targets, and senior police have been accused of lying to parliament about the deployment of undercover agents at protests."

    Sign me up! I mean, I'm an activist with information relevant to the UK Police's Interests! Really!... Just don't send the guy in the article my way, he's really creepy...

    If its about that guy who was embedded in UK environmental organisations then I don't think he had to be having sex to be involved. Either that or I never got invited to the right demonstrations.

    Yea, we lock you up with Bubba here, and he'll be having sex with you until you're ready to reveal all the information.

    Two explorers stumble upon a primitive tribe and somehow manage to offend them.

    They're taken before the chief and he gives them the choice of death or "unga-bunga".

    The first chooses unga-bunga. He is promptly raped by all the men in the tribe.

    When given his choice, the second chooses death.

    The chief smiles and pronounces sentence "Death by unga-bunga!"

    It's not sex.. They will be playing house.

    TinBromide will be going to the back of D-wing into Bubba's cell all scare and uncertain. Bubba, a 6 foot 7 inch (2.01 meters) tall black man weighing in at about 310 pounds (140.61 kg) and all muscle with a 6th grade education, is going to smile at him allowing TinBromide to relax a little although in a creepy kind of way.

    Then Bubba is gonna say, we's gonna play house. DO you want to be the husband or the wife? Well, Tinbromide starts thinking as shivers of nervousness and a scary feeling that seems like he just escaped death enters his psyche, if it's gotta be this way, I'm going to be the man so he says "I'll be the husband". Just about then, Bubba turned around, pulled his panties down, and said, "alright, now eats my pussy".

    So you see, there are fates worse then sex with Bubba. BTW, Bubba is my cousin and writes about all the fun he's having in the slammer all the time.

    It's just like we've been warning them for years: socialism leads to dependence on the government so severe that even anti-government protestors sit around on their asses waiting for an agent provocateur to provide them with a suitably illegal protest plan. Pathetic.

    Here in the good old land of yankee ingenuity, we just outlaw whatever internal sedition our plucky can-do citizens manage on their own, and then beat the shit out of it. If the supply proves insufficient, we ensure full employment for Our Heroes by surveilling those terrifying pacifist quakers(they might put the "fist" in "pacificist" at any moment, you can't be too careful) and the occasional pothead(Morally depraved, and responsible for 85% of Cheeto shoplifting incidents...).

Man will never fly. Space travel is merely a dream. All aspirin is alike.
