At the risk of several cars worth scuffers arriving chez moi and beating me to a metaphorical pulp with copies of the report on Institutional Racism in the Police, am I the only one to think that the pronouncement by the ACPO that it intends to ban members of the BNP from being policemen a trifle stalinist. I don't particularily care for groups of extremist thugs wandering around the place threatening everyone who doesn't fit their idea of who does or doesn't belong in this wonderful country of ours, but then I don't like the BNP either. Am I alone in thinking that the greatest thing about the UK is that we can think what we like and express those thoughts. This means that we have to put up with the BNP, WRP and even the PIRA spouting their crap. I may loathe what they say or think but I defend their right to do so. If our Police Chiefs think they can pick and choose perhaps we need some new Chief Constables.
