Thug Plod On The Loose

How many weeks on and we still have no progress on the police murder at the G20 protest?  What is the IPCC up to?

Brutal Assault

Brutal Assault

Now, again, we have crystal clear proof of outrageous, unjustified police assault.  It is a huge failure of leadership that the Chief Constable Of Nottingham has not already had the officers concerned in this scandal suspended and charged.   More than that, I believe that his failure to do so is a criminal offence in itself.  He is not just dithering, he is failing in his most fundamental duty – to protect the public.

Our tolerance level for this sort of police conduct is already terrifyingly high.  If he does not act then the Home Secretary should step in immediately.  This is not time for enquiries.  This is time for police thugs to be treated like any other lowlife pig and put in irons.

MPs Evading Justice

So are we supposed to be surprised that Gordon Brown is still clinging by his fingernails to the architrave at the door of number 10?  They couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery, an orgy in an whorehouse or a coup in the Labour Party.  Why?  Because they all have nothing  but their own interests at heart.  Their last year in office, their pensions, their resettlement grants.  These are not men.  They are manipulative, morally microscopic mice.

Phwooaar! Gerrumorrf darlin'!

Phwooaar! Gerrumorrf darlin'!

Plod PR, the go-getting communications agency, wholly owned by the police with exclusively the police as clients summoned all its collective intelligence and wisdom to determine that last Friday, the day after the European and local elections would be a busy news day, a perfect occasion to bury their cowardly, disgraceful announcement that MPs will not be prosecuted.

In fact, the expenses scandal has now morphed into an excuse for poor performance in the elections.  This is a triumph of misinformation over truth.  Over the weekend, we were asked to sympathise over the “assault on MPs about their expenses”.  If what has happened has constitued assault then my feeling is that it’s time for some GBH with intent.

Everything has now been re-geared to enable them all to get away with it.  Perhaps even more worrying is that this marks a new development in the politicisation of the police.  Increasingly the police are being used to support and enforce the whim of government,  irrespective of the law or justice.

The Taxpayers’ Alliance is still chasing down MPs (see here) but what has happened to the Telegraph?  Have they had a visit in the middle of the night from the police or have big, fat, brown envelopes been distributed around Telegraph Towers – or both?

Violent Pigs Shame British Police

There have always been bullies and violent individuals in the police.  Much has been done to reduce the problem but at the expense of overburdening all officers with paperwork.  The two brutal thugs who have been caught in the act of murder and assault at the G20 protests must be dealt with as severely as possible.  They are guilty not only of inexcusable violence but of breach of trust which hugely magnifies the seriousness of their crimes.

Yes, the enquiries must be allowed to run their course but no reasonable person can have any doubt that what we have seen on our television screens are crimes, both of which will require long prison sentences where, perhaps, these individuals will get the treatment they really deserve.

One of the most worrying aspects of both these cases is that both officers, against all the rules, appear to have removed their identifying numbers.  This indicates a premeditated intent to behave in a way that they do not want to be held accountable for.

This no time for the sort of weasel words and pathetic excuses which we are already seeing.  This is a case of  “THUG PLOD, STUPID PLOD, DUMB PLOD”.  The Tactical Support Group (TSG)  must be disbanded immediately.  Any unit that can demonstrate such inept, cynical, criminal behaviour must go and now!
