I don’t know if crooks fear Britain’s new FBI –
but it should terrify the rest of us

“What worries us much more is the unchecked misery of  so-called petty crime, which infects all our lives with out- of-control littering, vandalism, graffiti, spitting, shoplifting, aggressive begging, unpunished theft and menacing knots of feral youths polluting once-peaceful neighbourhoods.

This goes onwards and downwards, through informally legalised drugs and all the wretched things they bring in their train, and the state-sponsored surrender to drunkenness begun under Margaret Thatcher and completed under the Blair creature.

Nothing happens to those  who behave badly. There is  no redress for their victims, besieged in their homes or fearful on the street, who have learned not to bother to seek help from the law.

The answer to this is not another bunch of poseurs in baseball caps, running around with guns and shouting. It is the firm enforcement of existing laws at street level by unarmed, foot-patrolling constables.

But you’ll never see them again. Instead, the Government is spending almost half a billion pounds on the National Crime Agency, a rather sinister body (with a big baseball cap budget) whose very existence defies our national traditions.

It is directly under the control of the Government, which appoints its boss. That boss can issue orders to chief constables, who are supposed to be independent of government but now are so no longer.

Its officers are civil servants who must obey their superiors.

This sets them apart from traditional British constables who swear an oath to uphold the law, and so are actively obliged to refuse unlawful orders.

But NCA officials can be granted the same powers  as sworn constables, to arrest, to search premises and to  carry firearms.

Few now know any of our national history, but Parliament refused for decades to allow the creation of police forces in this country, because they had seen what such forces had become on the European continent.

They were hated engines of state oppression, and a menace to liberty. Robert Peel’s ingenious compromise – an unarmed, non-military force und

Now we have the very thing our forebears feared. There was, as far as I know, no public demand for it. We seem to  have quite enough top-heavy, self-important unaccountable agencies guarding us from imaginary perils as it is.

Now we have the very thing our forebears feared. There was, as far as I know, no public demand for it. We seem to  have quite enough top-heavy, self-important unaccountable agencies guarding us from imaginary perils as it is.

It has been created without any fuss or major opposition. And one day, in the hands of a future government, it could be a real menace. When that comes about, don’t say nobody warned you.”
