Five bobbies have been nicked in Manchester over the assault last week of a 17 year old lad. Unusually they were actually off-duty, so they weren't wearing the usual robocop gear they wear when they assault the public. Here is the sorry tale.
Interestingly when I worked in Mexico in 1990 half the local bobbies in the town I was in, Zamora, were in their own cells for various acts of corruption and illegality. I smugly thought at the time how good it was that Britain was above that kind of thing. But after 12 years of New Labour it seems that is no longer the case.
I suppose when the pinko liberal New Labour types cry about equality, it doesn't always mean equalling upwards. Watch out Mexico, we're catching you.
