As many people know here in England firearms are illegal to own. Therefore 90% of officers here do not carry a firearm. I thought it was so cool to see the constables carrying firearms at the House of Parliament because it is an important government building, of course. Nick and I walked up to them and asked if we could take pictures of them and they said we could take pictures and if they happened to be in them it would be ok. I even got one to smile. They were so nice and talked to is for a while! I really can't believe how polite they are here, even when they are mad they are politely rude. I think it's funny.
