Re: Apparently he was allowed to continue his journey

Hmm, I think the 'unarmed British Police' thing has been a bit of a myth, since at least the 1970s, which was about the last time I saw British police hiding behind trash can lid shields on news paper front pages. I have seen them with personal arms, grenades and swords. Swords still work just as well today as in the middle ages and require no batteries or propellant.
