Police Plan Westminster Protest Against Government Cuts


'Months and years' of demos lined up as officers 'rule nothing out' in campaign

Police Plan Westminster Protest Against Government Cuts.

THOUSANDS of police officers are to protest in London next month in the latest demonstration against government cuts.

The Police Federation announced today that it is to hold a mass meeting in Westminster on 13 July for members fed up with the 20% cuts in services planned by the government.

"This is part of a long programme of events we will be organising over the next few months and years," Police Federation chairman Paul McKeever told Police Professional.

"We have a duty to get across to the Government, and the public, that the road they are going down is a very high risk strategy.

"We are not ruling anything out in the future. We will do anything we can that is within the law."

Officers are unhappy with cuts in police numbers; a pay freeze; harsher pension arrangements, and being forced to spend time reorganising departments to take account of the cuts, rather than nicking villains.

"We should be out there trying to catch criminals and locking them up," McKeever told The Telegraph.

"We seem to be more concerned about the police, not the criminals."

McKeever said that morale within the police was at "rock bottom". One recent survey of 42,000 police officers found that, since the budget cuts came in, 98% thought morale had slumped.

Trying to catch criminals? Maybe instead of trying to catch the small fish you should try and catch the real bankster criminals and politicians who cause you to salaries to be cut in the first place. What a novel idea?
Once the governments all over the world start cutting everything in site watch the dow jones index and other world markets to start collapsing in concert. This whole thing is gonna blow up, too much debt on the books.

To our dearly beloved and less and less respected Police force. YOU are now taking action against the cuts while you have, for the past few years, supported the government and establishment and Corporations/Banks who are to blame for them? Not only to blame but positively and KNOWINGLY caused them!
You beat protestors and you even kill one or two so what exactly do you expect from the people of this country? Support in your actions? Are you REALLY that dumb?

Now, if you wish to get to the CORE of the issue and start using your braincells rather than your truncheons, I'd suggest you take the time to educate yourselves thoroughly regarding this "austerity" and economy and the fact there is NO need for it.

Just THREE simple things to look at which, if this doesn't sink into your dozy little skulls, then nothing will and you can carry on protesting like the others to your heart's content and the scum in government and the Queen you obey will STILL screw you!

Now read and listen well and by all means, check ANYTHING you wish. But for god's sakes let the penny drop! Otherwise continue being the ignorant fools you are propping up a corrupt system which is screwing you too!

Thanks for your post and the links, which have some interesting stuff about fractional reserve banking. Similar issues are at stake in what is happening with the euro, Greece etc. and it is possible your views might become more mainstream.

One word of advice: avoid the Jewish angle. Apart from the racism, it makes your case look ridiculous.

Yes and the joke is on many many generations before us but it is coming to a head now, its make or break for the power elite to establish the one world system of rule under the disguise of democracy, its worked to keep most of the western world enslaved under this false believe so why won't it work with the rest of the world, this really is the New World Order unfolding and wiping its tail as it strikes for the death kill off of any real human rights.

We really need to go back to the way of real living and everything else will take care of itself Its the EVIL that has corrupted man and created "Society" real life is squeezed out of us via the complimentary EDUCATION system

Appreciate the input however having researched this issue over 4 years and while the links I have provided do not mention "jews" but others do, I think the "jew" issue requires clarification. It is not, in my view, simple jewish people, but it most certainly is a zionist issue. There is nothing "racist" in that. I do not have a racist bone in my body but when you research something as wide and deep as this and it keeps leading you to zionist influence, one must be idiotic not to accept that it has some form of fundamental role in it. It is clearly seen from all angles while I accept you must study it in depth. Perhaps you have not done this and therefore, it is understandable that you may respond in this way.
Zionism is equivalent to any other "ism": Fascism, Socialism etc. To attack it is like attacking those. To attack those is not considered racism. If anyone wishes to equate zionism with judaism then they are propping up a lie because zionism is the jew's worst enemy.
However, I would also like to make clear that the links are ALL House of Lords and House of Commons and they are all simple fact and, therefore, they are not "views". Furthermore, the statement of Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve system, is not a view and not my view, it is his factual statement.

There are no "ifs buts and maybes" about this. This is how it is and this is what our Police need to fully appreciate. Their ignorance is a huge part of the problem and if they were not so ignorant and controlled they would commence arrests of our Members of Parliament for propping up this ponzi system and capitalizing/profiting out of it. The ironic thing is that Ken Clarke, who is our Justice Minister, is a prime example of who should be locked away.

But the Police are salaried by the very establishment who they are now going to protest against. How strong a protest do you see this as being then? It's a joke!

The police (and our military) are propping up an establishment which attacks THEIR "enemies" not ours. Our military attacks other countries who have never once threatened us while our police keep the population in the UK in check in their ongoing ignorance of the fact that while our own establishment are not attacking us with tanks and planes, they are attacking us using economic weapons.

This is not difficult to see or understand. It is transparently obvious to any intelligent person.

Until our military and police (and they themselves and their families) get this through their heads, then this country and its people are on a course of abject misery and poverty at the hands of the very people these "Protective services" personnel work for.

God save the Queen indeed. But while you save her and her corrupt establishment, you are killing yourselves.

Somewhat ironic given their heavy handed approach to far more deserving protests, in recent years. I'd like to see the populace kettle the police & see how they like it.

I have to say I agree with you. I'd very much like to see how the police demonstrators responded to being kettled, whilst proclaiming they were being peaceful and only demonstrating to make a point! Kettle them, make them thirsty, tired, hot/cold, scared and unable to leave, and generally so make it SO unpleasant that they never, ever want to protest again. This is their stance with us, the "General Population" and since that is exactly what they are too, irrespective of uniform, this is how they should be treated.
Will the officers left on duty to 'Police' the police demonstrators do this? ha, I'd like to see it.

I think we should be allowed to truncheon them, spray them with CS gas & water canon them all. They are as corrupt as the private company they represent, namely UK Corporation. The police will NEVER wake up, they prefer thier blinkers & the kickbacks they get.

The police don't have water cannons, and it's cs spray not gas.

Regarding the police supporting the government the last few years, Jack straw heckled police fed conference 2002.
Hazel blears told she was patronising the police to death and heckled 2004
David Blunkett given a silent response at his police speech 2003
Jacqui smith heckled after not giving the police the pay rise that arbitration had promised.
