Paramilitary Third Force

I was browsing the e-petion part of the Downing St site - I still have'nt found one to have Blair hung, drawn and quartered for High Treason - when I saw one to set up a paramilitary third force.

The author made a fairly good argument: the police are expected to do too much with too little(remind you of any other group of people?). So many coppers are engaged in Specialist Operations, for example VIP CP, there are'nt enough left over for "normal" policing.

Hard to argue with that; last year the Met spent over £300 million on dealing with crimes such as murder and rape. But they spent over half a BILLION on Specialist Ops.

Before the incoming starts, I'm not having a go at the Police. Most street coppers - as opposed to some of the cnuts with scrammbled egg on their hats - do a hard job to the best of their ability. I just don't think they can do it all on their own anymore.

Anyone who wants to read the petition, go to the No10 site and type in ThirdForce in the search engine(I'm far too stupid to be able to provide a link.)
