I guess most of us on here remember the Miners Strike in the 80s?. Convoys of Transit vans containing Police were a regular sight going up and down the
A1. In fact they came from all over the place, leaving Cities, towns, villages with just sufficient men to cover.At my nick, one man covered for up to 10 or 12 others who had gone to the miners picket lines.
Now take the Olympics, and I bet you a pound to a pinch of the proverbial, that the same will happen there. The only difference is, it will awaken the sleepers in all our Cities Towns etc to carry out whatever they may have planned, knowing cover is down to the minimal, and be able to get away with whatever they have planned, be it London, or any other major City, one Copper can't be in two places at the same time. I think we have far less Officers on the front line now than we did during the Miners strike, which is rather worrying.
I just hope I am wrong, and all goes well, and without incident/s.
Moggy is right with regards the H/Ks, semis, our force has them.
There is no such thing as a problem, just a solution!!
