Police: TRIUMPH FOR ENGLISH PRAGMATISM

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
HUBRIS!    The statements from David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove were worthy of their positions and deserve respect from all of us.  But the second tier politicians, bankers, business people and various observers whose opinions have been rejected serve as a lesson for all time.  By the UK allowing the steam cooker of right wing nationalism to escape in an orderly fashion,  notwithstanding short term fluctuations financial and political, we have avoided what is emerging in Germany, France, Spain and Italy; namely xenophobic nationalists and left wing trade unionists facing off against each other on the streets. EU leaders were offered the opportunity by David Cameron to show how much they could assist him in his negotiation; they offered him crumbs from the European table  and thought that he could make enough bread with the addition  of  fear and bluster. Now Merkel and Hollande are expressing their dismay at British voters` decision.  They have only themselves to blame.

British or perhaps English pragmatism is a triumph for common sense.


Police: PARTING WOULD BE SUCH SWEET SORROW

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
On Referendum Day it would be churlish to overlook its significance even on this site.  Referendums are a bit like London buses; until recently there hadn`t been one for close on forty years and then two arrive in quick succession.  

One major area where the two sides have been throwing slings and arrows is that of the proportion of the legislation under which we live that is due to its being imposed upon us by the E.U.  Remain say around 10% and Brexit estimate anything between 50% and 70%.  The difference as I understand it is that there is direct legislation but much more in the form of directives imposed upon us.  On the bench this was brought home to me during an afternoon dealing with transgressions concerning lorries and their drivers and/or owners.  The prosecutor`s opinion was that at the very minimum 50% of the regulations were down to EU directives over which our government had no power to refuse implementation.  My immediate thoughts at the time were that we don`t need an outside body for such...

Police: Five tips to staying safe at summer festivals

Written by RSS Poster Crimestoppers

Hands in the air at a festival

Crimestoppers volunteer Charlotte Wilson loves her festivals, and put together this guide to staying safe for us.

We’re all looking forward to summer, with brighter mornings, longer evenings and hopefully some sun! The keen festival goers among us, including myself, will be planning our summer weekends away to see our favourite bands and acts. But it is also important to make sure we take precautions to prevent ourselves from becoming victims of crime at these festivals.

Here are five tips to help you stay safe this summer:

1. Leave valuables at home

Instead of taking an expensive camera, take a cheap disposable one, as it will be less attractive to a thief and won’t be too much of a loss if you lose it.

Consider taking an old phone or a cheap Pay-As-You-Go as for similar reasons – it will be less likely to get stolen and won’t cost much if you lose it. It’s also sensible to use secure lockers if they’re available, to keep safe any valuables you do have to take. If lockers aren’t available,...
