Cuts to military police will damage protection of Britain's soldiers, says police leader - Telegraph Would be better written in the Sun... We do not and will never know if an MDP presence would have deterred the attack on Drummer Lee Rigby, and I do not think it is appropriate for us to speculate. So why raise the issue? Did anyone on the gate know what was happening at the time? Bringing the death up of Drummer Lee Rigby is beyond the pale for me. His point about intelligence? How many intelligence gathering agencies do we need? The major one failed, would a much smaller one have had more success? My twoppence, one service police a la Carabinieri.
