The state's pedlars of fear must be brought to account

Another mega rant about ACPO and how out of control it is. Contains the information that it became a private company in 19997. Before the 2010 election, the right wing press ranted about how out of control it had become. Now its the turn of the centre-left.
This post and the previous one are occasioned by the discovery of a group of undercover officers who appear to have travelled Europe within the Green movement. No-one seems to be asking whether they had the permission of the other states concerned...or indeed if they needed it. Your blogger's suspicion is that they were OK'd by the police forces concerned. If they weren't then we have some interesting European arrest Warrants coming up!
As predicted, it's dissent, not terrorism that all these new powers will be used against.
