Excellent Example

I happened to be in Westminster the other day, and I walked past the MPs' car park entrance, guarded as usual by a mixture of armed and unarmed police. The machine-gun-toting officers stood a little way back from the gate, and there were a couple of yellow-jacketed PCs standing at the front. One of them was a London bobby out of Central Casting. About fifty-ish, burly, and of an avuncular mien, he had his arm round the shoulders of an American tourist while her companion took some photos. He used what I guessed to be a well-tried line:- "Well, Birmingham eh? We've got one of those in England. What happens in the one in Alabama?"
That's English policing at its best. We need more like it.
