The UK is becoming like the US but only after the US has started it's journey out of the hell it was in.
Anti-terror billboards have been popping up all over the UK, mainly encouraging people to investigate odd behaviour such as leaving rubbish out, having a camera, strange comings and goings (who uses that phrase anymore?), staring at CCTV, having more than one mobile phone, driving a van and regular use of computers (terrorist use them you too you know?), padlocks and suitcases.
I kid you not, the full list is here. It is Bush-American in it's grave and terrifying stupidity.
Of course, investigated means ringing up the anti-terrorist hotline (which I imagine is a bright red phone that glows whilst it rings) and snitching on anything and everything you or someone else deems odd, like owning some padlocks.
The UK government may as well run down the street shouting: "FEAR! FEAR! FEAR! BE SCARED PLEASE!" Indeed, this is pretty much what they have been doing of late as the political landscape darkens for them and any distraction from how bad they are doing is embraced like a dying grandparent.
Thankfully, you can make your own anti-terror billboards right here, so get stuck in and get creative with anti-terrorist sentiment. All I ask is that you share them with me.
