Trying to set up a Milita in the UK , or even suggest it will get you labelled a terrorist at worst, a nutjob at best, whilst I agree with you about we here in the UK SHOULD have one to help with community emergencies when the 'real' services are under pressure, it may even help inspire communities to help each other instead of hiding inside and waiting for someone to rescue them.
But as soon as you say Militia you imagine armed gangs roaming the streets like vigilantes looking for bad guys, and seeing as most of the bad guys are in the Houses of Parliament theres your main block to forming a militia.
Edited to add,
the middle ages had militias for the feudal lordling system, and all it caused was bloodshed, but then again I can see the lordling system coming back into force soon , as MP's, rich elites and such hire private 'security' forces to protect their assest from the people ( you and me). There will be blood, militias help to prevent it sometimes, but only if they're armed, which we ain't , legally anyhow. Besides if you said to the UK public " We're starting up militias again", you'd get the real nutjobs like weekend rambos , unstable BNP members and neo nazi's joining to try and further their own agendas.

I mean no disrespect but you guys and gals over in Britain can not even talk about a militia? What rights do you have left over there? I honestly feel sorry for you and your cross bows I wonder how long you will be able to keep them?

Millitia is NOT the right word.
Are you going to start killing police officers, guerilla warfare, kidnappings etc?
this is what i think of when i hear Millitia.
For that i dont support it.
If you want to make a doogooders group, then there are plenty already set up.
