So can't answer the questions still?
As it happens I'm all for routine arming but can't see it happening for a while for 2 reasons.
Firstly cost and secondly given how easy the public and judiciary will hang an officer out for the slightest minor use of force are you honestly surprised that many don't have faith that they will be supported if they use lethal force?
But again.. you knew that didn't you?
Did the nasty MoD police tell you no once or something? Maybe they didn't snap to attention and listen to your wide range of policing experience? I mean I'm mearely degree educated, with infantry and home office experience which means I'm only allowed blue crayons to eat rather than purple.

well precious, if The Government decided to arm the Police, it will have to put in place the legislation to support them. Really not hard, is it?
How come NIPS officers don’t indulge in all the teary eyed handwringing over firearms that their more sensitive mainland equivalents do.
But carry on being the Police Farce run by Chief Constables who think they are running the uniformed branch of Social Services.
