Police stopped wearing their uniforms home in the 1970s, mostly as a purely practical laundry matter. You're a bit late in trying to make some sort of warped "point" about it.

The symbol (crest) for Preston is interesting given that it is (supposed) to be Muslim dominated!

As someone from Yorkshire I am loath to say anything good about Lancashire but Preston is rated as one of the best places to live.

Although it also has some of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the country.

Because the same thing applies to nail technicians - mostly Vietnamese women smuggled into the country, paid virtually nothing, and kept in near-slavery conditions.

Why do words like "afraid" and "fear" always proceed "police" in UK publications?

Quote:
Victims of so-called honour violence are "still not being believed" by police who fear being labelled "racist" when investigating their allegations, according to a landmark report on the issue.

Police officers fear being labelled "culturally insensitive" when investigating such cases, which have included murders, and only three of the 43 forces in England and Wales were deemed fully capable of dealing with it.

'Racism' fear

"Staff" and "managers" appears to be a reference to council workers, not police.

"Theresa May curbed the use of the powers when she was Home Secretary because of fears it was undermining relations between the police and ethnic minorities."

I'm sure your finger is on the pulse enough to know what job Theresa May is doing now. Why blame individual police officers and not the politician responsible? Clearly a lot of coppers weren't "afraid" of using S&S powers previously. In any case, why do you make it sound like trying to balance community relations is somehow a bad thing?

That's nice, of course doesn't provide evidence for your claim but keep trying as they say a broken clock is right twice a day.

Or that the reason we know this happened is that many of the people involved have been arrested, charged, prosecuted found guilty and jailed with long sentences. And that it caused a series of official inquiries that in conclusion lambasted all the public authorities and the police involved for not doing their job and has ensured such things shouldn't happen again.

But it's still happening

Quote:
“Sadly, it is still happening in Newcastle and other cities, but this city is determined to tackle it.”

And they have to self-congratulate for actually doing their jobs.

Quote:
“Unlike some other areas, Newcastle agencies did not try and sweep this under the carpet but actively went looking for it and as a result a large number of perpetrators were arrested and prosecuted, and victims saved from further trauma,” said former barrister David Spicer, who led the review.

I think your view of what the UK looks like is warped by reading or viewing some, let's say, marginal opinions by people who either don't live there or have ideas to sell you.

I think you should ask members here who live in the UK or who have been there. I was there two years ago and aside from being in the last few days of the Brexit vote, nothing was happening anywhere in London or Edinburgh or any of the other places I went to.

Stop believing fearmongers.

Ah, so now it's not that they're cowards, but rather that they don't act sufficiently like the SS and beat the living **** out of criminals or people who disturb the peace.

Interesting.

Not every UK citizen has surrendered. At least there are some men in the UK with more Testosterone than a girl scout. Here they are taking matters into their own hands because the incompetent police are too afraid of being called racist. That's why I hate these "well at least our police don't injure anyone" arguments. They just punt their power to non-state actors all so they can come across as virtuous by claiming they "don't hurt" anyone.

They might suck at fighting, but at least they are willing, unlike most Britons.

Up until a few weeks ago I'd have thought that was unlikely, because I'd expect a higher level of quality from the Russians. Now, I just wonder if he knows the height of the spire of Salisbury Cathedral.
