THE FOUNDERS OF THE LF WEB SITE THE LATE CAPT.

IN FURTHERANCE OF THAT END ALL SUGGESTIONS THAT THE WEB SITE BE ALLIED TO OR INDEED INTEGRATED INTO THE FUSILIER ASSOCIATION OR ANY OTHER GROUPING WERE FIRMLY REJECTED.

Good morning Maurice (and all)
Yes I recall you telling me of the request being made of you by HM Government. They appear to be in complete turmoil brought about by their strangulation by the PC Brigade who now occupy some of the most influential positions in Government and Civil Service.
In some ways it is similar to the situation the Police Service (Force) find themselves in these days. They have in my view lost credibility with the public who have rapidly lost faith in them and their ability to fight crime and deal with matters in general. Yes, they have been in the spotlight in the recent past regarding the terrorist threat etc but their response in this area has been to the utter detriment to all other aspects of police work. Their current response to reports of crime of all kinds is pathetic and indeed a disgrace to the profession of which I was once so proud....not any more. I recall my very first week as a Constable being sent out on patrol by the Duty Sergeant with firm instructions to ' book as many as possible ' and I spent my day handing out parking tickets etc like confetti. At the end of the week I was taken aside by an old worldly wise Detective Sergeant who pointed that all those people who I had possibly alienated with my ticketing zest, were the very same people who the Police may want to come forward as witnesses etc., in the future, and that I was doing more harm than good. We police by consent in this country and by alienating the general public you lose their support. HM Government should take note of that simple truth. They have by their actions in recent times totally alienated the Veterans of this country and I for one would not **ss on a politician if he/she fell at my feet on fire!
I repeat my advice to you when you told me of HM Government's request....ignore them totally. They would have to drag me to any enquiry in shackles and even then I would not speak!
Regards
Geoff
