Free flip-flops Madam?

That fine establishment founded by Robert Peel in 1829 when the Metropolitan Police Act was passed which provided permanently appointed and paid Constables, responsible for keeping law and order.

The current 'Peeler' is drowning under a sea of paperwork [A two-second assault generates twelve HOURS of paperwork!], and is compelled to suffer random direction changes in government-mandated policing policies - not to mention the myriad hair-brained local government initiatives, like being nice to the pikeys, promoting 'gay pride' and doling out 'free' (rather taxpayer-funded} flip-flips to half-dressed slags hammered on WKD, as they stagger up the street at 3am, to save them from breaking their necks in their 'inappropriate footwear'.

On top of all that there's diversity issues, and all the equal opportunities bullshit. Just don't mention a seeming over-enthusiasm in shooting Brazilians or kicking in the back doors of homes belonging to the wrong targets... and shooting them.

To be fair, today's plod suffers with the current government policy of incorrectly profiling innocent citizens then terrorizing the population to push through unpopular laws - and then having to deal with the resulting panic, as well as allegations of institutionalized racism, a litigious 'no win no fee' legal system and political correctness that can be described at laughable... if it wasn't so pathetic.

The police are increasingly viewed by the public (who's consent they police by) as nothing more than uniformed enforcers of New Labour policy, and whilst this is perception, perception counts for quite a lot. The bond of trust that has existed between police and public for nearly two centuries is eroding at an alarming rate. If the police continue on the path of politicisation, then the damage done will be irreparable, and this once fine institution will be no different than an armed militia in some far flung dictatorship.
