Vanishing police

thank you Tony Blair for destroying the UK police force, and removing protection for the public from criminals. As reported in the press yesterday, now only 1 police station in 8 is open all hours. If you happen to live in one of these counties, tough luck, there are no cop shops open 24/7. The figure in brackets is the number of police stations: Cambridgeshire 0 (16) Cheshire 0 (16) Cumbria 0 (25) Derbyshire 0 (24) Devon and Cornwall 0 (62) Durham 0 (36) Gloucestershire 0 (33) Hertfordshire 0 (28) Kent 0 (27) Leicestershire 0 (22) Lincoln shire 0 (39) Norfolk 0 (38) Northamptonshire 0 (11) North Wales 0 (23) Suffolk 0 (22) Surrey 0 (12) West Mercia 0 (47) Wiltshire 0 (25) These counties aren't much better, they have only 1 cop shop open: Dorset, Humberside, Lancashire, North Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Sussex. But it is entirely possible, within budgets, to have a good ratio of police stations open for access 24/7, e.g: Essex 12 (47) Northumbria 14 (38) It is now entirely possible to be beaten to death by muggers outside an occupied police station, and for no one to come out and give you assistance because it's 'after hours'. And this has already happened. Businessman Stephen Langton was beaten to death last month yards from the police station in Henley, Oxon. He was shouting for help all the time but no one came out. His body was found later by a returning patrol car. The government says dial 999 for assistance. The Police Federation says: many 'response teams' on duty to deal with 999 and other calls are 'understaffed, over-worked, chasing targets rather than criminals and sinking in bureaucracy.' So that's it folks. Take up crime at night. Piece of cake. You ain't going to be caught. Now where's my jemmy, striped jersey and bag with Swag on it? No lack of patrol cars in my county booking bikers for minor traffic offences. Nice to know Blair and co have got the balance right, isn't it?

French bikers

made that slow ride system work for them and it only took a day. But their bikers are all organised into one main powerful action group called (spelling) Societe des Motards en Colere (Angry bikers). Hapless can correct me. A great number of bikers descended on Paris in the morning rush hour. They formed slow-moving columns on every main road leading into Paris. The place jammed solid and no one got to work on time. Many gave up and went home. Same in the evening. And that's all it took to make the Frog gummint withdraw planned further restrictions on bikes in France. Same tactic used by lorry drivers here and tractors during fuel crisis. Worked at first but cops used their powers to book people for obstruction and tickets were flying like confetti. I still think a mass assembly of bikers would be effective. Would concentrate more individuals; the bikes are more elusive if cops try and nick them; and if they numbered in the thousands it would be hard for cops to act unless they set up road blocks. They couldn't do this in advance if the planners kept their mouths shut, but some nitwit would probably leak it. Cops, on political orders from No.10, would set up blocks to surround the mass of bikers so none could get away and they'd all be booked for obstruction. Freedom of speech? Freedom of assembly? You gotta be kidding. One lady, acting on her own, made a peaceful protest at the Cenotaph with a banner. Over 100 cops in vans arrived to 'control this serious menace to society' and she was hauled off and charged. If I could, I'd leave, but too old to do it now. :-(

I beg to differ on 'pick up the phone outside' I did the other night but could have grown a beard by the time D&C's control centre answered, Not on, I feel isolated from the police in my area & I suspect a great deal of people do in other areas of UK. By the way my son's binning GMP, He's had an offer from another force that he's taking up but he's under no illusions !
