More democracy lost
Thursday, 18 December 2008 08:22

Jacqui Smith, UK Home Secretary has scrapped plans to give the people of the country a vote that would have brought police under better scrutiny and made them more accountable.
It is reported that this was because of opposition for the police themselves. If ever there was a reason to push ahead with this it is precisely because the police don't want it.
Ms Smith needs the police to do the government's dirty work, executing innocent Brazilians, arrensting opposition MPs, alienating youngsters by stopping and searching them etc etc.
We the people have been denied the opportunity to use our voices to say something about policing in our area.
This is not in the public interest, it is in the police interest.
