I am loving the row between the police and the government on the policing of the riot. The government want a flashy top US cop with experience to deal with it. An impressive record in cities mainly achieved through flooding the streets with cops and inflating their budgets whilst annoying his boss and in riots using large numbers of armed police and soldiers. The fact that we don't have armed police, budget cuts and where able to stop the riots after two nights means he might not be able to be as successful. He also has had to resign in the past due to accepting multiple unauthorized trips from corporations and individuals - a problem both MP's and police have already been suffering from. Is this correct idea?
