Admittedly this is not really 'news'. Excerpted from 'Know Your Rights', by The Clash from Combat Rock
Know Your Rights, All Three of 'em:
You have the right, not to be killed.
Murder is a crime. Unless, of course, it is done by a policeman.
You have the right, to free speech.
As long as you are not dumb enough to actually try it.
You have the right, to food money.
As long as you don't mind a little investigation, humiliation, and if you cross your fingers, rehabilitation.
Was Joe Strummer living under a G.W. Bush Administration? Oh, it was his dad's buddy Margaret Thatcher.
