The motto of the British police

It is, says Dalrymple,

Concentrate on the inessential.

He points out that it is taken from the motto of the psychiatric services. Concentrating on the inessential gives the police

far less trouble

than, say, apprehending the culprit of a crime. Today the British police

repress everything except crime and disorder

while dressing up like

the paramilitary arm of some extremist political party.

Derbyshire police turned this lagoon in Buxton black because, they said, it ‘is dangerous, and gatherings are in contravention of the current instruction of the UK government. We have attended the location and used dye to make the water look less appealing’.
