However, comparing Gordon's Goons to the SS is a terrible insult...to the Nazis.
I'd love to see a paramilitary heavy mob goose-stepping on the heads and testicles of Chavs, drug-dealers etc. Unfortunately, frightning OAP's and giving law abiding citizens a shoeing for daring to question the Party is about ZANU-Labour's limit...
It would be dangerous to simply write off ZANU-Labour. About the only thing they are good at is winning elections. Remember also they have created a huge class of "client voters" - people on benefits, those who work for the Civil Service etc. Turkeys don't vote for Xmas.
Don't bet against ZANU-Labour equalling the Tories 18 year "winning" streak...
Reasonable grounds for breaking down the door include the âmovement of a curtainâ, a radio being heard or a figure being spotted inside which âmay be the offenderâ.
Only the latter is reasonable enough for the Police to gain entry as people who have tried the "Curtain twitched" or "The TV was on excuse" have been seriously disciplined - Oh dear!
I dare say there ae he fe that woldn't abuse these powers however I expect the majority would relish the oppurtunity to not have to "Fanny about" any more. Boot through the door, give me your stuff and I'm off.
There's a long and dishonourable history of baillifs acting outwith the law
Tie a very sharp knife to the end of a broom handle....
"They don't like it up 'em!"
On another note, those in financial crisis are to be denied interest-free emergency loans and charged up to 26% APR. I think the government are looking to franchise this service out to loan sharks, Crapita etc. Pay up for your hip replacement granny, or we'll break your legs!
A serious problem would be if you are in dispute over something and the credit cardc company or vendor decides to ignore the County Court and thus negate arbitration and just call in the bailiffs. But we will have a supervisior body like the ones which oversee telephones,gas and things like that so we will be OK I suppose.
I quite agree carrots, this has far reaching implications for anyone with any property worth having. It will be too late complaining after a moron has broken into your house and made off with the TV, computer and other things. If they are wrong then the householder/customer has the grief of sorting out the mess. It may be reasonable to knock down a door but not to make a hole in the wall. Well that is comforting.
