Of useless gestures and measures

Daily Mail - Dozens of police stations lowered the Union Flag and replaced it with a gay rights banner to mark a day of action against homophobia. One police chief said the rainbow flag demonstrated his force's support for homosexuals who felt they were victims of prejudice. But critics warned that it was dangerous for forces to show support for particular campaigns. Earlier this year, Britain's most senior policeman ordered his force not to fly any flags in support of individual groups.
Good on that senior policeman, the police force of any country is not supposed to be a vehicle for any group to use to further their agendas, not matter how special, deserving and fairy-like they feel they are. Think about this, if the coppers start flying the fairy flags, then what's stopping the local muslims from crying Islamophobia and demanding that the coppers fly their flag in support or else! What will stop the Chinese, Koreans, Indians, Amazonian pygmies etc from demanding the same thing.

And how dare these cretins lower the Union Flag and place the fairy flag above that, last I checked Britain the nation came first, not the fairies of Britain. Someone in the police hierarchy ought to string up those cretins for this useless, fairy-like gesture.

While I'm on the subject of useless, feel-good gestures and measures, here's another old chestnut that those of us with a brain [largely Conservatives obviously] have always known.
Daily Mail - The millions of CCTV cameras on Britain's streets have done virtually nothing to cut crime, Home Office research has revealed. Cameras in town centres, housing estates and on public transport 'did not have a significant effect', a report concluded. It found that the only offence that was heavily reduced by their presence was theft from vehicles in car parks. ......Critics of CCTV say that improving police patrols or street lighting would be more effective, and that cameras can even increase crime by encouraging people to drop their guard.
Well, allowing the law-abiding to carry weapons to defend themselves will also reduce crime, but then there won't be much need for the nanny state will there. No, the nation of cowards is always more desirable for any nannying fascist's agenda.
