Yep. If someone breaks into your home you are expected to runaway. If you can't runaway, you are expected to completely cooperate with you assailant. I can't find the story now but this lead to a pretty horrific incident where a couple of burglars essentially tortured their victims.Originally posted by: Nebor
Self-defense is illegal in the UK.
I'm not joking. You will face charges if you injure someone while defending yourself.
Wow thats just wow, I really cant think of anything to say bout that
Of _course_ you are allowed weapons in the home and to defend yourself. You are not allowed to carry weapons on the street and quite right too.
Not that anyone cares about actual facts here, but there you go.
