Talking of Police helicopters I was looking at the Mersey website

http://www.merseyside.police.uk/html...outs/index.htm

Very open and transparent about the "important" work the helicopter does. looking at most of the calls they are false alarms or "suspect checked correct" another fabvourite seems to be "High visibility patrol". Just look at some of the incidents and stop and think what each point REALLY means.

Bear in mind the Police helicopter cost about 5,000,000 a year each to run - that's an extra 200 Policemen on the beat per helicopter.

The Police USED to be about preventing crime - nowadays they just make a token effort AFTER the crime has been commited.

very true - where has the local policeman gone in the rural areas that prevented any problems by just being around - nobody knew where he would pop up next.

Ridicilous thread

Codprawn this is a ridicilous thread, I dont think it is the Motorway closing you have a problem with, but Authority in general, and of course New Labour, the Police the Irish, etc etc

Is this they type of stuff we can expect on Ribnet in the winter when the ribs get put away .


Police closing Motorways , what next if they didnt close them you would be jibbering on about something else!
