    Phil, when the man who was jailed for disrupting the Oxford Cambridge boat race now gets British citizenship you cant really expect an sort of law and order in Britain from this point onwards. Dont worry about breaking any British laws because nobody else does and after all if you do get hauled in its only a minor inconvenience and can obviously be used to assist you in getting what you want from Britain.

    We can hope! I know its a long shot but who knows, he might get more than the usual six months and telling not to do it again. Maybe he wasn't drunk or off his head on drugs so maybe he won't have a "good" excuse for doing it! Who knows?
