  1. Good old BBC trying to persuade us that Up is Down ,right is really wrong and a “genuine” religion of peace Buddhism is actually violent.If only we could borrow the rose tinted spectacles and millionaire salaries of our BBC leftist eugenicists we could catch a glimpse of their dystopian cartoon world view. They are not saying a damn thing on the points you have raised.

    The only thing i could find is the link below where they discuss local policing generalities …….
