Britain and the 'free' press have caved to the EU.. or we're in the ****

Well.. there is a small town down in East Sussex called Lewes. Every year like many, they have a bonfire procession and its one of the larger ones in the county. Like most bonfire brigades they burn one or more effigies.
As with many other years, Lewes was on the TV for its efforts again.
This year they decided to burn Vladimir Putin and Alex Salmond.
Vladimir Putin went up in flames. Alex Salmond was actually saved and not burned at the request of the police - apparently because of ONE complaint  Roll eyes Unknown to the police there was a second effigy of Mr Salmond that ended up going up in flames anyway. My friend had attended the brigade and was telling me about this today.
Now apparently there was also a second version of Vladimir Putin too... also burned but completely blacked out by the press. The one on the left is the one the press broadcast on TV. The one on the right was not (and if you look closely, you can see the bullet holes in the fuselage).

So do we really live in safe times you have to ask or have we just completely been taken over by EU madness?
YOU decide!

As a few of the Guy makers said it's only meant to be humorous political satire.
I imagine if someone came up with the idea of "Spitting Image" today it wouldn't have a chance.

The left and right are one image - i found it on google images after my friend told me about the MH17 shooting effigy that wasn't aired on TV.

Perhaps you can explain to an old poster - but what does this have to do with the EU

Surely OJ, you realise that in the current "political climate" (as championed by Nigel Farage) absolutely everything one disapproves of is inevitably the fault of "Yoorop"?  Cool  Wink

Everything has to be politically correct OJ and only Europe can decide that - you of all people should know that OJ you know how this country works now.

Political Correctness has nothing to do with the EU
It is a UK phenomenon created by the chattering classes

Yes but those clueless morons still bow down and obey their evil masters in the EU.
I'm sure plenty of others on this board will agree..

So the EU are not scared of Russia.. Poland and Germany have no reason to worry or put pressure on the UK....
Ok! That decision has been made... we're simply in the **** then instead  Wink

I can't see how this links with the EU either ?
Who made the complaint ? and who was daft enough to take action over it ?
