3 Para are trained in riot control

At the risk of inviting some anti-RMP sentiment, the British Army already has troops with specialist law enforcement training. Using Paras or any other infantry unit to maintain public order in the UK's current No-Win-No-Fee culture is just inviting legal action from every single person they come into contact with. At least having RMP among them would ensure that any incidents that occur would be documented as quickly as possible.

I'd rather not stand alongside some random Monkey when it all gets noisy.

The dirty, greasy bastards would sell you down the river without hesitation. They love to get a conviction. They don't care how or from which side. Keep them to the rear so they can just get on with the paperwork when the snatch squads return.

The greasy bastards.

Fixed that one for you.

Sorry if you missed the irony in my first post - however i was focussing on the recent riots in London specifically and would love to see the day when the rioting rats stream down a High Street, smashing up shops and burning cars, then turn a corner and run into a line of Paras....toilet paper anyone ?

BTW - The BBM service would be disabled second time round..Encryption my Arrse.

Nice, well done. The RMP are currently embedded with combat formations on Operations performing exactly the role I described. Not many complaints of "fit-ups" coming back from Afghanistan...

I agree with you on that, besides the cnuts would try to get the loot back off the lads :)

Grow up you pompous fool.

The lads are shitting themselves when they have to return, just in case some Monkey in a bad mood, who didn't get his 'down time', searches them and finds a bit of booty.

Greasy coppers, I've shat 'em.

I am heading out on Tosca soon.

The first line riot control bods we have are the infantry types.

Why not ? They are best for force projection. They have more experience of it than the rest of the army. Whether in Nicosia or London that fact is well established.

That said, stand by for the claims. Will the govt pass some short lived reintroduction of the good old "Riot Act" ?

In all fairness the only the people the RMP have 'sold someone down the river' whilst being embedded on Ops are idiots who decide to make up their own rules. Agreed with Zero-Over, the embedded RMP idea works pretty well on Ops and in theory could work in riot control, avoiding repeats of the past.

Nice - did I create a sockpuppet and post that without realising?

It absolutely ******* wouldn't, rioters are already breaking the law by being there, monkeys have no authority over civvy scum which means they are either going to hinder the blokes employing force or as mentioned stitch them up, we have plenty of experience from NI with public order, rioting hasn't changed in 7 odd years, neither had the need (or lack off) for an RMP callsign in the shield line. In that situation they can't protect you they can only **** you over, anyway the whole thing is a total non-story, government spin to make it seem like we have a wham bam capability when we definitely do not.
