PCs or not PCs, that is the question ...
All over the internet as well as the world's mainstream media, the words of the witnesses to the 'bumping off' an innocent Brazilian in London, are being echoed ad infinitum. Which is all very well in one way. For everyone should be made acutely aware of how bad things have become. Not least, for those unfortunates who find themselves now facing a terrible twin-threat.
I mean, of course, the not-white-enoughs and not-wealthy-enoughs. Those who can't afford to live in so called respectable areas, nor to buy well tailored, well fitting, good quality clothing. For it's now perfectly plain to see that it's this section of the community who are trapped between the biggest rock and the hardest place. They're at the mercy of the evil bastards who don't give a damn about whoever it is they're dishing death out to daily -- and they're also at the mercy of our alleged protectors.
But to get back to those witnesses; I don't accept that they saw what they said they did.
No. Really! Sorry, 'fraid not.
I don't believe for a single minute that any British policeman blew this poor Brazilian's brains out. I believe that, as is so often the case with witnesses, they're reporting what they 'think' they saw -- albeit in good faith. The cold blooded murder undeniably took place but, as for putting the finger on the proper perpetrator[s] I sincerely suggest it's a simple case of mistaken identity.
I believe what truly took place in front of these traumatised train travelers was actually an SAS operation -- going to hell in a hideous handbasket.
Apologies aplenty are abounding from the Metropolitan Police Commissioner[s] and from both the British Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary -- but at the time of writing it is still shockingly noticeable that none have been heard from Blair.
Something else is plainly [and amazingly] missing here. It is the absolutely standard declaration, whenever policemen kill -- "The officer involved has been suspended from duties, pending further investigation." As glaring omissions go this one rates 10 - on a scale of 10.
Most British policeman, though admittedly not all, are genuinely well disciplined. And without exception they realise that the full weight of the very law they're required to uphold, soon descends upon themselves if they step outside it.
Modern British policemen are well paid and enjoy plenty of extra perks. Most, are far from fools. Being booted off the force means the beginning of the end as far as any further decent job prospects go. Also, they realise more than most of us, the full folly of ever finding themselves imprisoned. Any time a policeman's sentenced to serve a jail term, it's certain to be 'hard' time -- with a capital "T".
So it's self evident, or should be, that only a total plonker of a policeman would put FIVE bullets into a man's skull, under the very noses of several independent witnesses. There is absolutely no possibility of any plausible defence for such a serious act, and not many know this better than policemen do.
The SAS are a different breed. They play by nobody's rules but their own, and they're answerable to nobody. They know it, I know it, their brass knows it, the police know it, the courts know it and even [or especially] the ruling monarch knows it. The SAS motto is "Who Dares Wins." So, they do dare. And even when they're proven to have been wrong -- they still win. Because, I repeat, they play their game by a different set of rules.
If our military, or any part of it, is now being allowed to become judge, juror and executioner then why doesn't our pretend-premier go the whole hog? Why not have done with civilian judiciary and police all together? Many of us could even find we eventually benefited from such changes. Including the British soldiers currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan
Our capital city is now quite literally under sustained attack. Innocent people on their way to do an honest day's work are now being blown to bits by a bunch of evil bastards, on a seemingly weekly basis. And neither our politicians, police, nor what now passes for our [once unrivaled] intelligence services, appear capable of carrying out their respective duties. So what's left to try?
Perhaps we would all be safer and better served in several respects by having British troops patrol our own streets instead of Iraq's and Afghanistan's. Eh? I for one would place more much faith & trust in our ordinary soldiers, and offer them much more support than I ever would in the case of psycho, SAS sociopaths.
That such a shocking state of affairs has lately been allowed to develop in Britain is nothing less than one almighty and damning indictment of our current leaders utter incompetence. They have insisted since the start of the super-simpleton across the Atlantic's abominable adventures across half the globe, that it's best we stand shoulder to shoulder with the insane sob. Well, some of us are prepared come right out and say it isn't best. Others won't say it - but nonetheless know it. Just as we all know that this pathetic pair of pillocks presenting themselves as prime minister and president respectively, are inept beyond imagination.
Think about it. They're both promising their people that the only way to prevail is to do it their way. That the only possible path to peace - is war. My God, surely such nonsense belongs only in some kind of 'Alice Through The 1984 Looking Glass' paperback.
Blair and Bush have been doing it their bloody way - yet they've managed only to make matters worse.
There was a time, and This Old Brit remembers it, when such lousy & loosing leaders would do the honourable thing; admit their failings then fall on their swords. Of course, that was when there still was such a thing as honour amongst politicians. Nowadays they're perfectly prepared to put anyone and everyone to the sword -- except them-self-righteous-selves.
Blair should do the whole world a favour. He should simply tell his crazy, Quixotic cowboy friend from Crawford to climb into his saddle and ride into the sunset -- along with himself.
