Davey Davis, 38, a friend of the family, said: “It was the most harrowing thing I have ever witnessed. Michelle was at the bedroom window yelling, ‘Please save my kids’ and we wanted to help but the police were pushing us back and not allowing us near. We were willing to risk our lives to save those kiddies but the police wouldn’t let us.The police department denies that anything is wrong:
A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “The senior officer in charge is confident we handled this incident as professionally as possible. In a situation like that you could end up with more deceased bodies than you had in the first place.”From the department of Doesn't Get It. In the place that Great Britain used to be. Past tense:
Not in the NuLabor Britain. Follow the rules. Know your place. Your intellectual superiors have everything well in hand, and don't you forget it.
“I thought the police were there to protect lives. At one time they would have have gone inside themselves to try and rescue them.
“When a family is burning to death in front of your eyes, rules should go out of the window – especially with kids. Everybody wanted to try and help.”
The whole thing reminds me of another example of greatness passed, with a stunted generation unworthy of their noble predecessors.
To those who think we should be more like Europe with its kinder social model, wake up.
