We can also discuss the following case.

 
 

The court didn’t say it was legal to carry a knife for self defence. The decision was that the judge should have left it for a jury to decide whether the defendant had a reasonable excuse. Had it not taken so long it would have gone back to court and a jury would have decided having heard all of the evidence in that particular case.

It is up to the jury to decide if it is reasonable in those circumstances

If a jury ever decided that a half a hour was reasonable, I think people would criticize it and that it would open the floodgates to the point where people would be carrying when they don’t need to.

As @Reasonable Man says there is no authorisation to carry a weapon contained within the judgement.

Having read that I am interested in how @Stephen Maize has interpreted the case law to come to the conclusion that carrying a weapon is lawful. 

Given the age of that, I am confident more up to date case law would have superseded it anyway.

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
