The Political Police (part 2) and a Brilliant Letter

The politicisation of the police is something that we should all be worried about.  It is clear yesterdays article , The Political Police and the Slide to an Authoritarian State,  that there are some groups and political causes that are being promoted and favoured by the police – they are encouraging these groups to report hate crimes, and dissuading others from doing so.  The only … Continue reading The Political Police (part 2) and a Brilliant Letter
