21st Century Wire says…

Imagine if private corporations, many of whom are traded on the stock market, were given the responsibility for patrolling your neighbourhoods, investigating crimes, and arresting suspects. That’s exactly what is being rolled out right now across the UK.

It started off small, and few have taken any notice. Recently, we saw the launch of a new privatised police unit in the UK which charges homeowners £1 a weekly to have their burglar and panic alarms linked to a rapid response unit. We’re told that this amounts to ‘great savings for customers (residents)’.

Leading the larger takeover effort however, is private global security firm G4S who have already signed a £200m contract with Lincolnshire Police in 2012. The controversial firm claims it can save £1bn a year across all 43 of the UK’s police forces.

Still, a number of citizen advocacy groups hold the strong belief that the public must keep its police services properly funded, and publicly owned.
As Benito Mussolini famously said, “Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power.”

One thing is certain: you will not see any Soros-funded ‘antifascist’ activists protesting stories like this…

Privatisation and handover of British policing to G4S is already well underway…

Many people will have been shocked by the revelations of G4S guards abusing detainees in an immigration centre as revealed by the BBC’s Panorama.

But not many people will know that the privatisation of Britain’s police is already well underway.

And not many people will know that the private company more and more of our front-line policing duties are being handed over to is the disgraced G4S:

“Part of G4S Government & Outsourcing Services, Police Support Services works in partnership with Police forces across the UK on the provision of custody services, transportation solutions, temporary staffing and specialist police skilled teams. It offers professional outsourcing services that enable Forces to target their own resources more effectively and efficiently in the front line of local communities. In high risk or surge situations they can provide ex-military specialist security teams. They also design and build state of the art custody suites. They offer a secure Transportation service that provides a range of options using a fleet of purpose designed cellular vehicles. The Service also operates the UK’s largest database of temporary police skilled staff and is the leading provider of temporary policing specialists to Forces and Local Authorities.” (Source: text and image G4S)

I’ve only got one question.

Are we all stark raving mad?
