Time For A New Home Guard, UK

Here's a nicely controlled new Home Guard.

Volunteers engage with residents, informing them of crime issues in their area and giving crime prevention information. Volunteers also seek intelligence which can lead to the detection of crime. They are a high visibility deterrent. This is a non-confrontational role and police are always on deployments.

With cuts to the number of officers and Colchester expected to only have six PCSOs by April the use of volunteers is becoming even more important.

With the next revenge terror attack just around the corner we could do with a slightly more independent New Home Guard. Never intended to be more than backup for conventional services, but available if the situation requires.

Surprise attacks are just that. A surprise. Local groups training together will respond better to a surprise attack than shocked individuals. Surprise co-ordinated attacks are obviously planned for the UK. Everything is pointing to it. To deny it now, after Paris, is clutching at straws.

Training with weapons would be inappropriate at the present for most people. It would inevitably result in injuries. Training in observation and communication is far more important. Our highly trained armed response units will take care of major threats, but they can't be everywhere and distractions will certainly be used. They'll be called off in one direction then the big event will take place somewhere else.

A firm and co-ordinated response is needed to prevent unrest from spreading. Local organisation and information sharing is essential for a co-ordinated response.

Time for a New Home Guard. Let the jokes commence, humour raises morale.

You'll have to supply your own tea, but here's a mug for you.
After a nice cuppa we can face anything.

I couldn't organise a coke snorting session in David Cameron's bathroom.

The Ian Dibells of this world are not as numerous as we would like. Heard gunfire, ran ("flew" according to a witness) straight at the gunman. Negotiated for twenty seconds, then was fatally shot. During this twenty seconds the injured man managed to make his escape.

A few Dibells in Paris may have made some difference. It's the lack of natural born Dibells that makes organisation essential.

'We give them' is what I want to avoid. The entitlement concept, mummy provides the clothing, training and orders.

It's going to be your own clothes, training based on shared group knowledge, and action based on common sense, not orders from some career hungry jobsworth.

We are one.

I'm glad I took the plunge and asked for a coalition of political activists, military and police. It sounded mad at the time, but now nothing could be more appropriate.

We are one.

people need to remember it was not the police who saved us in the war ,it was us ourselves.
