Wait...are you talking about painting just the fence, or the wire itself?
In neither of the cases I cite would the top edge be painted.

I just read via google that it can be used for protection of private property.

FGS if it's on top of a fence it's not going to hurt any innocent person!!

An electrified door knob is very different as you well know.
What I do know about using razor wire in a domestic situation such as claimed to have been done being a dumb move.

I also know that deliberately electrifying a door knob falls into the same category of actions depending only on circumstances.

People on here said I was wrong to put vandal paint on my meter cupboard door after vandals repeatedly kept tearing it from it's hinges.

I put the paint on anyway - along with a warning sign.

No trouble since!
Good idea.

Yes, as I said earlier, the law is contradictory.
Even worse, it often seems to favour the criminal rather than the victim of crime.

I suppose it has never occurred to those in the position of making laws that to continue to favour and protect the criminal in such ways will achieve nothing other than encouraging even more crime in this crime-ridden country.

I'll repeat what I have often maintained should be a motto painted on our national emblem:
"Crime pays in broken Britain"!

I thought from his previous posts about problems with neighbours that he lived in downtown Beirut, not in a village in Shropshire.

I had my own preconceptions, but thought it best to look it up.
The short answer is that, typically in this country, the situation is contradictory! (As I expected. )
I looked it up too and appears that generally speaking it is illegal in residential areas (it's a council responsibility), it is only allowed in Industrial and rural zoned areas and council approval is required.

What did surprise me was the various types of razor wire available.

...and the equivalent of glass in cement - Croc Top Fence Spikes





Which seems a better alternative to razor wire

Re: Neighbours.

I feel sorry for our scumbags. There they are just trying to do a good, honest day's robbing and they have to contend with things such as razor wire.

I suppose eventually, we will become such a wokey-dopey Country that we will have to give up our posessions on demand or face prosecution.
