A Times editorial on the anti-semitic terrorist German left (ahem) of the 1970s, and the lessons that can be applied towards today’s enemies of the democratic state:
There is division in British politics today over anti-terrorist legislation. That debate had its forerunner in Germany in the 1970s. There remains disagreement about how far the liberties of terrorist suspects should be abridged; a draconian response can undermine security and liberal values. Yet a generation ago, Germany, with a terrible past but a new democratic culture, chose to defend itself and crack down on the RAF.
…I quote the whole paragraph because it’s interesting, and because context is useful in understanding what I find to be a truly hilarious last line. Especially for a British paper.
