Well what else would the UK police tell the public to do in the face of an armed terrorist attack, other than run, hide and call 999 (the UK equivalent of 911)? I’m thinking, fight! To be fair, the policeman in the pre-film interview does mention fighting back and say “we would never criticize you for that” – as if criticism is the worst thing a Brit could face. Which it might be. Not to mention that Brits are known to prosecute subjects who use violence on aggressors. Anyway, the main problem in the main film is that . . .
“hide” is synonymous with “cower.” As we’ve discussed before, it’s best to think of “hiding” as a precursor to planning an attack or ambush. Anything less is simply waited to be killed. Or rescued. A sucker’s bet IMHO. Remember: you can fight a terrorist with whatever comes to hand if needs be. Meanwhile, this video is more evidence that The Land of Hope and Glory is more hope than glory these days. [h/t NJ]
