There is that bloody word again. "Authorities". Once upon a time in a country that still had some freedoms, councils were councils and the police were a force to fight crime.
All changed now. Almost every state organisation is now - "Authorities". Subliminal black propaganda to get the sheep people to believe that these people really are the "Authorities" and have a legal right to control us instead of just serve us, which is their true function. Jumped up bastards.
For decades, I have always believed that the only way to improve the policing of all areas of our sad country was to have elected Senior Police Officers running their appointed areas.
This is nothing to do with party politics and all about crime. If a Chief Constable is crap then he should be voted out and someone who promises to get the job done voted in. If he also fails, then throw him out at the next election for that post.
But this idea does not sit well with the "ruling parties". They like their existing system where they make political appointments to the senior positions in the police. And we know why.
I am sure we all remember when Tony Blair campaigned in a general election and the following Police Vehicles all displayed "Vote Labour" on their livery.
Tony Blair was that he should travel around in an armour proofed police Range Rover, Number 10 phoned the commissioner's office and said we want 'Vote Labour' on the side of the police car, and Ian Blair did it.Those are the kind of officers Zanu Labour likes and rewards regardless of their performance.
So it comes as no surprise to read that the plans to allow the people to decide who controls the police has been dropped.
The leader of Labour’s 5,000 local government councillors had previously complained that the plans could lead to British National Party members holding positions of power over policing in England and Wales and being able to dictate priorities.God forbid that the people should be allowed their democratic right to elect those that should serve them instead of oppress them.
If there is one thing the Tri-Axis of evil hates and that is democracy. If they had their way they would also drop elections. One man. One Vote. Once. That is their style.
