Mind Your Own Business
In the halcyon days of yore, pre Nanny (if those days ever really existed), there was a more open and mutually respectful relationship between the police and the public whom they are meant to protect.
Sadly, as Nanny has step by step politicised the police, that relationship has soured somewhat.
An example of this souring is this wee incident that happened recently on the A23 near to Brighton (my residence).
Five police cars and the force helicopter swooped on a red car as it raced down the A23, at speeds thought to exceed the national speed limit.
Motorists saw two patrol cars chasing the red Rover, three more setting up a road block and the police helicopter flying low overhead.
Needless to say, they contacted the local rag.
It turns out that this was a training exercise for Sussex Police.
However, when the local rag rang up the police to get some background (eg were ordinary drivers put at risk by this etc) here is verbatim (according to the rag) response:
"It is none of The Argus' business and it is none of the business of any member of the public who saw it.
It happens every day of the year and members of the public are always ringing up, if they choose to ring The Argus then that's up to them."
That's the spirit lads!
Funny that, I thought that we paid these people's salaries?
It is also rather amusing that the local force thinks that we should mind our own business, given that their CCTV vans (which patrol Brighton's streets) have the following logo emblazoned across the side:
"Smile, you're on CCTV"
Clearly I have misunderstood the relationship between Nanny's police and society.
