The Tories need the coppers on side, Thatcher knew that so she could start her persecution of the working class. If and when it starts to go off when Brexit turns to a mountain of shit, they will need them again to oppress any opposition

True but I bet some coppers will be happy to be cracking heads for the Tories' private Army. They were before.


There's not as many now, and they know they're no longer immune from being shat on.

There are two things the Tories will always manage to find money for - Unionists and the police.

Not this time. Relaxing the pay cap has to be funded from present budgets. No additional money. And Thezza didn't endear herself to the police as Home Secretary.

Quote:
A speech by Theresa May billed as an important moment in the Brexit negotiation process is to take place in Florence next week, “to update on Brexit negotiations so far.”

May will be travelling to Italy purely to make the speech, which is not tied in to any bilateral talks or conferences.

Asked why the venue had been picked, May’s spokesman said the prime minister “wanted to give a speech on the UK’s future relationship with Europe in its historical heart”.

He said: “The UK has had deep cultural and economic ties spanning centuries with Florence, a city known for its historical trading power. As the UK leaves the EU, we will retain those close ties. As the prime minister has said on many occasions, we are leaving the EU, not Europe.”

Trade with England, especially London, was a key part of the Florentine economy during this period, notably in wool and cloth, though critics of Brexit might point out that this declined in the 16th century as Antwerp took over as a trade destination. https://amp.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... n-florence

If she's planning on using the police as heavies to keep dissenters in line she should probably stop pissing them off:


Police Federation brands Theresa May a liar for claiming some officers have enjoyed a huge pay boost

Calling it a “downright lie” Calum Macloed, the Federation’s vice-chairman, said: “It shows they have lost touch with reality, if they ever had it, and are clueless as to the demands and dangers officers have to face on a daily basis to keep communities safe.

The private sector could step in and use some of Nigel's peoples' army to duff up pickets.
