it occurred to me this morning, while munching on my CocoPops (I donâ€™t do muesli), just exactly what is happening to British Policing in the name of Reform.
Take the instance of a brave Gladiator, struck down in combat with one arm severed, and a leg barely hanging on. Â What is going to happen to that brave Gladiator? Â In the absence of the wherewithal to heal his wounds he will surely die.
Policing is such a Gladiator. Â We have seen Central Government hack at our limbs until we are now, surely, mortally wounded. Is there anybody out there willing or able to stitch or cauterise our wounds?
If the answer is â€œNOâ€ then our life-blood will surely ebb away, just as certainly as that of our brave Gladiator, and the end result must surely be the same, a certain death.
Is this what Government intended? If not, they must have surely been Reckless in the extreme in their actions.
The blood is already flowing, our life-blood is ebbing into the barren soil, the NHS are also struggling so itâ€™s not certain if the Ambulance and Doctors etc will arrive in time.
Only one course of action left, put AMIP and the Coroner on standby, looks like thereâ€™s a Murder Enquiry on the horizon.
