In a move straight out of Erdoğan's playbook, Theresa May deploys military for domestic policing in UK amid general election.

“There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.” – Commander William Adama, Battlestar Galactica
