My answer to How would you defend your home in the U.K. against a home invasion?
Answer by Desmond Last:
If I were the Prime Minster or a member of the Royal Family I would let my 24/7 armed Police, who if in any doubt as to whether they posed an immediate threat to me, would shoot to kill.
However as I am not either I would have to look for some means of defending myself even though they could be armed and about to shoot me.
As in every part of our World there is one law for the Government and another for the People.
