    Police, Courts & the Armed Forces are supposed to be the only thing Government actually does control.



    In other words Mr David Cameron -

    Fixed. ;)

    I'm sure Sherlock is a good show, but I'm still not sold on the idea of taking him out of the Victorian era.

    That's the most absurd fix I have ever seen on these boards.

    It's the UK, they've been creeping toward a dystopia for a long time.

    We already privatize prisons here in the States, and there is nothing at all horrible resulting from this practice. Nice to see the UK going further. [face_dancing]

    I am not in the least bit surprised that they possess this power. I would be surprised if they didn't :p One can only hope that this actual police force privatization comes with a fraction of the sparkly pants that this sketch has.




    Afraid I have to join in on the general "....What?" here. I thought the first Sherlock Holmes film was a lot of fun, but that's the best they've done and it doesn't even hold a drop of wax to the BBC series, let alone a whole candle.

    I remember the Punisher 2099 comic Marvel published in the '90s dealt with the privatization of police. The guy who was the Punisher in the year 2099 was a policeman by day, and the Punisher by night, who helped people who were second-class citizens because they couldn't afford police protection.

    We're big on copying America these days, I wish we weren't






    Still, the idea of it makes good books and movies

    American law enforcement is not privatized. We manage to abuse power and incite riotous outrage with government money, thank you very much.
