Pres. Trump has said he will not rule out a return to waterboarding and Saturday UKip leader Paul Nuttall has followed suit.
Nuttall is standing as UKip candidate for Stoke Central the BRexit capital of the UK.
At time of writing UKip has few elected MPs at Westminster and those that are crossed the floor quitting the Tory Party and joining the alternative Tory Party UKip some time back.
So why are intelligent people concerned about a posisble return to water boarding?
Watch the following footage but bear in mind that waterboarding took place in a controlled environment. The real thing will be much more brutal.
Here is an idea - No boss or person in power should authorise anything they have not personally experienced.
People can die when undergoing water boarding. Yet in the past it has been used on suspects in Guantanamo Bay; suspects who ultimately were never allowed a trial.
If Trump, Nuttall and other right wing extremists believe the end justifies the means they need to consider what helped breed a new generation of terrorists.
The Dily Mirror reports "Mr Nuttall, who put himself forward to contest the upcoming Stoke-on-Trent by-election, said he would be “OK” with use of the torture method, which simulates the experience of drowning, if it ensured lives were saved."
What a stupid man Nuttal must be.
"If it ensured lives were saved?" How does that one work Paul?
It is 2017 but in some ways civilisation is going backwards. When will we be bringing back ducking stools, the public stocks and more? I think most of us can think of at least two candidates for the stocks.
