The Run, Hide and Tell Policy: Proof the UK Has Surrendered

Is this the country whose leader once pledged “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender”? And that was said when the UK was being faced with daily devastating attacks across the whole of England that killed hundreds by the world’s largest and most effective air force of the time, not just a ragtag bunch of religious zealots wearing tin cans armed with carving knives.

Has it really come to this? How?

    Singapore has a similar policy and even has an app to tell the cops what’she happening.
    Frankly this is what happens when you disarm the population

    In Texas, they follow this protocol:

      And sometimes they skip the ‘aim’ part.

    “Has it really come to this? How?”

    Socialism. It poses as benign and helpful while slowly devouring countries from the inside out. NASIism burned out like a Roman Candle due to it’s obvious and untenable excesses. Socialism is the same disease but you don’t realize how sick you are until one day you realize nothing is functioning as it should.

      Socialism is just another name for Communism.

      • Watchman

        Leftist and Progressives believe in the inevitable progression from Capitalism to Socialism to Communism. Because Karl Marx said it is inevitable, no other proof needed.

      Venezuela is doing very well, where’s the problem? /sarc

  • John the Mad

    The director of US Homeland security was on the radio this morning noting that the British Run, Hide, Tell program is merely a takeoff of the US Homeland Security Run Hide Fight program.

    Telling people to fight jihadis would upset Muslims. Can’t have that.

    • Alain

      Allowing people to have firearms would be too big a danger for treasonous government, but leaving them defenceless and easy targets for Muslims is just fine.

      • Watchman

        The British government and its public servants will save you from the real domestic threats, like Tommy Robinson and Katie Hopkins, while keeping foreign ‘extremists’ out of Britain, people like Robert Spencer and Pamela Gellar.

  • And how can they fight?

    They cannot arm themselves.

    They cannot speak out against Islamist terrorism.

    Their mayor is a jack-off who tells them to put up and shut up.

      That’s a horrible set of pictures.

      The grip on the pistol could be much better, and the one depicted is often called a “cup and saucer” grip, and doesn’t nestle the pistol down into the hands to limit recoil and allow faster recovery for the second and successive shots.

      The second picture is great for target picture if you shoot nothing else but red circle targets. For practical shooting at all types of targets, the sights should be set up to the centre of the red dot, although the normal range of pistol use means the depicted aim point would probable work adequately.

      On the third picture: most pistols don’t allow you to pull the trigger using the end joint of the trigger finger. The depicted finger trigger contact is likely to place shots down and to the left of the desired impact point unless you have very large hands. This is due to the pressure on the trigger moving the pistol in that direction as it is squeezed.

        Good points all. But in this instance it’s the thought that counts.

          …just do a mag dump…one or two will get lucky..

      • Bla Bla

        When you are under fire all the rules get thrown out of the window. Even those that have trained will panic and just either freeze up, or panic and spam bullets down range with no due course to aim. I have a suspicion that’s what happened to the bystander taking a round to the head in London on the weekend.

        • Watchman

          In an emergency under stress you will revert to behaviours learnt in practice. Thus you should practice like it was real, since under stress you will reproduce this behaviour. Most police don’t get enough range time and experience in shoot/no-shoot scenarios – kudos to those who regularly practice.

    ….the “Light, Throw, and Run” team will still win. We have to be “Pull, Cock, and Squeeze”…
