NOT being allowed to take a backpack into the National Gallery is proof that terrorism has won, it has been claimed.
Martin Bishop, from Hackney, was forced to leave his bag in the cloakroom before entering the gallery’s Goya exhibition, which he insists is a ‘flagrant abuse of his hard won civil liberties’.
He said: “By preventing me from exercising my right to do whatever I want all the time, we’re doing the terrorists’ work for them.
“I asked the staff if this was London or Raqqa, and they told me to calm down and stop being such a twat. Osama bin Laden couldn’t have put it better himself.
“Last week, I was told I couldn’t bring my own popcorn into the cinema, and when I complained they asked me to keep my voice down. Congratulations, Islamic State.”
Bishop said the defeat of Western democracy was also evident in ‘rampant political correctness’, the congestion charge, and the fact his local supermarket no longer sells medium-sized eggs.
