It is very interesting seeing the media in the UK today. The Governemnt is paying the price for trying to use the Police as a distraction for the late return of all the Government ministers.
Interestingly the ACPO has some terrible points copied straight out of a lefty playbook. Basically the Tories cuts rare wrong, in fact it is much worse and the Police have real concerns over pensions and pay.
How does this impact Cameron asking a US cop for help?
Of course it does not but exposes the Police as an organisation run like a Union, obsessed with funding and internal management; no wonder the guys non the ground are unsure when the leadership is so abysmal.
For the politicians, they have made a poor judgement in fixing on the policen rather than broken society which be a better, more accurate, meme. Which would enable a discussion of what is wrong, much of which will expose the terrible mistakes of the last Government's policies.
