But probably not the News that Camoron and the BBC want us to read.
The BBC News website proudly carries a story this morning about a West Mercia Detective who got paid £20,000 in overtime in a year, so what?
They completely overlooked that ALL overtime has to be approved by a Supervising Officer and is therefore necessary presumably. Overtime of that magnitude would certainly be questioned, even if it was justified and necessary.
However, try as I may, I could not find the ‘real’ main story on the BBC News site.
Acting like a throwback to the Stasi, Camoron has come out with some brilliant one-liners such as;
“Britain is too “passively tolerant” and should not leave people to live their lives as they please just because they obey the law“
“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens ‘as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone’,”
“It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance.”
So where exactly does Camoron get off interfering with the lives of law-abiding citizens? If people break the law then they should expect proportionate retribution, but I’m not at all comfortable with the State interfering with people who have done nothing illegal.
No wonder Camoron and his gang want to scrap the Human Rights Act.
Was it a total coincidence that we were all looking at a West Mercia tec’s overtime when it seems only the Indie has reported Camoron’s over-zealous ambitions?
Are we really in for another 5 years of this?
