I have found a most curious tweet.

Can someone explain to me what is really going on here? I am not very good with British humor.

That tweet is from a verified police account. Are they making fun of their own nation's laws?

They are serious. Read through their tweet history. It's pathetic.

Unfortunately it's all true... The police mocking the laws, the bans themselves..

Guess what... Criminals don't obey laws ... so if you don't have the police to enforce whats new laws (when present laws cover a lot of it).

You got a bunch of Muppets in parliament or council that don't want to push stop and search because it could offend people, they cut community funds so people go on the streets ... But sure, news laws that will fix it.

Over a decade of austerity will take its toll on communities

London is to the UK what Scientology is to religion, tbh. Would be nice if the Thames Barrier failed catastrophically in the near future.

Thankfully, the answer appears to be yes.

So, pretty much the same as the rest of the UK then?

You got it. The Brexit in essence is the 960y old conflict of the the anglo-saxon country against the norman London Tower, the late late night show following an invasion. There are histories of families you see the conquered fortune holds to our times. Of course french names all of it. Not only in Britain but also these names show up in the U.S.
