  • About me.

    I know enough to know that at 04.00am it gets dark out on the streets. It has done this for the last twenty odd years, to my knowledge and will probably continue for the forseeable future. At some stage in this ‘future’ I shall retire and probably won’t give a damn if it still gets dark at 04.00am. Until then I shall be out there, somewhere, lurking in the shadows because someone, somewhere will be doing stuff they shouldn’t and then, well then I will introduce myself. In the meanwhile I shall try to remain sane and remember why I joined in the first place and try to ignore all the people who piss me off by making the job more complicated than it should be.

    Any opinions contained in posts are mine and mine alone. Many of them will not be those of any Police Force, Police Organisation or Police Service around this country. The opinions are based on many years of working within the field of practical operational Police work and reflect the desire to do things with the minimum of interference by way of duplication for the benefit of others who themselves do not do the same job. I recognise that we all perform a wide range of roles and this is essential to make the system work. If you don’t like what you see remember you are only one click on the mouse away from leaving.

  • C.T.C. Constabulary.

    A Strategic Community Diversity Partnership. We are cutting bureaucracy and reducing the recording of target and monitoring related statistics. Our senior leaders will drive small, economical cars from our fleet surplus to save money to invest in better equipment for our frontline response officers. We are investing money to reinstate station canteens for the benefits of those 24/7 response officers. We have a pursuit policy. The message is that if you commit an offence and use a vehicle, we will follow you and stop you if necessary. It is your duty to stop when the lights and sirens are on. We take account of the findings of the Force questionnaire and are reducing the administration and management levels and returning these officers to frontline response duties. We insist on a work-life balance. We have no political masters. We are implimenting selection processes that take account of an individuals skills and proven abilities for the job. Our senior leaders will have one foot in reality and still possess the operational Policing skills they have long forgotton about and seldom used. All ranks are Police Officers first and specialists second. We will impliment career development and performance evaluation monitoring of our leaders by those officers who operate under that leadership. The most important role is that of Constable. All other roles are there to positively support the role and the responsibility of Constable and the duties performed.

    “We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising. It can be a wonderful method of creating the illusion of progress while creating confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”......Petronius

One Way ticket wanted.

A leisurely cruise through the interweb, a look at a couple of blogs and I was aware that Gadget has another valuable piece of input into one of the tabloid press offerings.  The lawless trend will not come as any  surprise to Police officers up and down the country. It will probably not be of any concern to Jack Straw as he will assume that all Police officers are safe and warm within the confines of their Police Stations drinking tea in their comfy canteen chairs trying their best to avoid doing any work.

The reality is that most stations have lost their canteens and might be fortunate enough to have a small kitchen to make a brew when they get a chance to come, that is if someone hasn’t nicked the last of the milk or left an empty container with only a couple of drops inside.

What got me interested in the Sun was the article concerning the alleged hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who is apparently planning a protest march in Wootton Basset by the  Islam4UK group, carrying coffins to symbolise thousands of Muslims killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Choudary is, apparently, in housing with his family claiming benefits from a country that he clearly has no affinity with and allows him to operate his own religious or political agenda under the social financial umbrella of the tax payers of the country he has an issue with.  If that is not biting the hand that is feeding, I don’t know what is. 

Perhaps a one way ticket to a destination of his choice would save everyone a shed-load of money in the long-term.

Residents of Wootton Bassett have turned out more than 100 times in the past two years to pay their respects as the bodies of fallen British heroes are taken from nearby RAF Lyneham to a morgue in Oxford.  I suspect that they will not be very happy about the views of Anjem Choudary.

The Sun reports that Moderate Muslims have urged police to stop the protest to prevent a backlash by right-wing British groups. Also Wootton Bassett’s Mayor Steve Bucknell said he was “dismayed” by the planned march, saying: “We will do whatever we can to persuade the authorities that it will be a very bad idea to allow this march.”

Police confirmed they were aware of the planned protest and said they would take all steps necessary to maintain the peace.

  1. Love the header, Thats how we do it with our boys.

  2. It beggars belief that this country allows this to happen.

    The mosr recent prison stats tell a sorry tale too.

    PRISONERS AT 18/12/09 84,231
    Useable Capacity 85,986
    Available spaces 1755

    In recent years the British people have been increasingly denied their democratic rights. On issue after issue, the views of the majority of British people have been ignored and overridden by politically correct elite with their own agenda. All this in a country whose people invented modern Parliamentary democracy.

    On immigration, on capital punishment, on the surrender of British sovereignty to the EU and in numerous other areas, democracy has been eroded as politicians fail to offer the British people real choice on such vital issues.

    We are owed that choice and we should restore and defend the basic democratic rights we have all been denied. More REAL democracy, not less, at national, regional and local levels is what is required.

    There should be a Bill of Rights that guarantees basic fundamental freedoms to the British people. Ordinary British people should have real democratic power over their own lives and Government, local and national, so that it is truly accountable to the people who elect it.
    Some laws that exist on the statute books prevent people from making a free choice. They should be abolished, along with the “Human Rights Act” which has been imposed on this country through the European Union, and which is nothing but an excuse to prevent British laws stopping the scroungers of the world bleeding our nation dry.

    Traditional free speech should be a “given” supported by citizen-initiated referenda whose outcomes are binding on Parliament. That is true democracy, NOT this farce of Government we have witnessed and endured these past generations.

    Whilst we are “all for” a multi cultural integrated society, [Dickiebo; NOT I!!!] the immigration problem is now way past the joke.

    Around 84% of all current UK citizenship applications are from the third world, according to figures from parliament.

    We follow the Hansard questions on the parliament site, and as of March 7, there were 27,525 new citizenship applications being processed by the UK Borders Agency.

    To see the split by nationality, pope over to our guest post on Dickiebo :-

    http://dickie70.wordpress.com/2009/12/29/guest-post/#more-3019

    Britain is rapidly being colonised by the Third World. 11% of all people living in Britain today is not of British origin and was not born here. When this figure is added to the totals of second and third generation immigrants already here, the Third World origin sector of the population rises to well over 20%.

    Mass immigration at this level means that Britain will become a Third World nation well within two generations.

    Non-indigenous births will soon account for more than half of all the babies born in Britain, according to statistics provided by the NHS. This is a topic that is kept well under the radar out of fear of a public backlash. There doesn’t seem to be a UK standard definition of “indigenous” but many take it to mean babies whose grandparents were born in the UK.

    The government statistics tell us that about 20% of babies are born to mothers who themselves were born in the UK. The figures do not tell us the overall figures for those born to mothers whose own parents were not born in the UK.

    If you walk around most maternity units in London and our patch in the West Midlands, you will find that almost ninety percent of the births are non-indigenous. Like the police and the gagging of sensitive information that the public really should know, doctors face reprimand and censure from the General Medical Council and the Academic Royal Colleges for publicly revealing such information, but this is too important NOT to open to public debate.

    At this rate, the indigenous peoples of the UK will be a minority by the next generation. This is sooner than most people realise and it will have enormous consequences for the country.

    I fear the consequences of this for my teenage children, where traditional values of our generation and those of our parents and grandparents face extinction as a result of the deliberate policy of ethnic cleansing that this Government has orchestrated. We wrote about this disgraceful and deliberate cultural sabotage in our article last month:-

    http://thinbluelineuk.blogspot.com/2009/11/disgraceful-truth-of-labour-immigration.html

    Given current demographic trends, we, the indigenous British people, will become an ethnic minority in our own country well within sixty years – and most likely sooner.

    All the signs are there:
    • 84% of all current UK citizenship applications are from the Third World
    • 14%of all primary school children do not have English as a mother tongue
    • 316 primary schools in England have a majority of children whose first language is not English
    • Non-indigenous births will soon account for more than half of all the babies born in Britain
    • Over the next twenty five years, immigration will account for 40% of all new households in this country
    • 3.7 million legal migrants have entered this country since 1997 – and 2.5 million are from outside the European Union
    • At least 20% of the currently resident population was either born overseas or are descendants of foreign-born parents.

    The majority of these foreign-born residents are of Third World extraction. The Office for National Statistics state that at least 11% of all people living in Britain today were born overseas. This figure does not include their second or third generation children.
    All these facts contribute to the extinguishing of the British identity through immigration.

    Something must be done if the British people are to retain their homeland and identity. We would support

    an immediate halt to all further immigration,
    the immediate deportation of criminal and illegal immigrants, and a system where those immigrants who are legally here would be afforded the opportunity to return to their land of ethnic origin.

    Positive discrimination schemes have made indigenous Britons second-class citizens in our own country. The flood of ‘asylum seekers’ must be stemmed, the majority of whom are either bogus or can find refuge much nearer their home countries.

    • Deport the two million plus who are here illegally
    • Deport all those who commit crimes and whose original nationality was not British Review all grants of residence or citizenship to ensure they are still acceptable
    • Offer grants to those of foreign descent, resident here who wish to leave permanently Stop all new immigration except for exceptional cases
    • Reject all asylum seekers who passed safe countries on their way to Britain.

    Immigration is way out of control. Britain’s population is now over 60 million and rising. Not only is Britain increasingly overcrowded, but the fact is, that a country is the product of its people, and if you change the people you inevitably change the nature of the country.

    We want Britain returned to the way it has traditionally been. We accept that Britain always will have ethnic minorities and have no problem with this as long as this does not change nor seek to change the fundamental culture and identity of the indigenous majority.

    The current uncontrolled situation has contributed to higher crime rates, demand for more housing, extra strain on the environment, traffic congestion, longer hospital waiting lists, lower educational standards, higher income tax, lower wages, high unemployment, a loss of British identity, a breakdown in community spirit, more restrictive policing, higher council taxes, a shortage of council homes, higher levels of stress and unhappiness and a fragmented community.

    Take a look at the foreign nationals in our prisons:
    Population in prison by nationality and sex – 30th June 2009

    All nationalities 83,454
    British nationals 71,231 85%
    Foreign nationals 11,350 14%
    Not recorded 874 1%
    The Foreign National Prison Population is represented by :
    Africa 2,897 3%
    Asia 2,456 3%
    America 302 0.36%
    N America 137 0.16%
    Europe 3,617 4%
    Middle East 595 1%
    Oceania* 52 0.06%
    W Indies 1,289 2%
    Other 5 0.01%
    *(Australia, New Zealand, Fiji)
    (We have the precise numbers by individual country).
    14% of our prison population are foreign nationals. The Prison Service states that each prisoner is housed at a tax payer cost of £30,000 per year. That is a staggering total of £340,500,000 per year.
    If these foreign criminals were returned to their country of origin, this would solve the prison overcrowding problem, and empower our courts to impose correct sentences for UK offenders who, all too often get away with a judicial slap on the wrist. At the moment, the criminal fraternity is laughing at the farce of British justice.

    These are some of the consequences of uncontrolled immigration, a massive financial burden on the taxpayer that should be spend on UK solutions, a broken criminal justice system, prison overcrowding, a broken society with a rapidly eroding sense of national heritage and culture.

    Other countries would not tolerate millions of immigrants taking over their society. Japan would not do it; China would not do it; India would not do it; Pakistan would not do it – so why should Britain?

    Each nation has the right to maintain its own traditional culture and identity. The right of India to remain Indian, the right of China to remain Chinese, the right of Pakistan to remain Pakistani and the right of Saudi Arabia to remain Saudi does not mean that any of these nations have to “hate” anybody else. All it means is that they wish to preserve their identity and national existence.

    This is all we want for Britain – the right to be British and the right to openly celebrate events like Christmas that we have celebrated for centuries, without fearing the imaginary offence this might cause.

    Is this such an extreme demand? Is this so unreasonable? – NO! In fact, it is perfectly normal and completely in line with the rights granted to every other nation and in accord with international law.

    By its own reprehensible conduct – This Government is responsible for acts of utter treachery toward an entire nation that will have dire consequences if they are not reversed by their successors.

  3. Anjem Choudary Is a waster. We have Gurkhas applying to stay here with their families. There is uproar about this, because it is going to cost us money (Which would be better spent on floating duck houses..) And yet the above mentioned oxygen thief, is kept in house and home for what reason? I would gladly round him up, and his ilk, and their buddies residing as Her Majesty’s Pleasure and send the lot to the nearest country that will take them. I believe Atlantis has some space. Just drop them out of a Herc in the dark.
