Hampshire and South Wales - hot beds of terrorism

From Hansard:

"David Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) stop and account forms and (b) stop and search forms were issued in each police force area in 2007-08

Vernon 'Hokey' Coaker: Data on stops and account are collected by police force area and are published in the 'Statistics on Race and the Criminal Justice System—2006-07' report for the first time this month

The tables show that there were some 41,924 stops under Section 44(1) and 44(2) of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The breakdown by police forces is instructive, shall we say, in that while the Met is by far the most active, it would seem that Methodist Jihad, Wessex nationalists and a revitalised Meibion Glyndŵr are keeping the South Wales and Hampshire plod busy, or could it be that the pungent scent of rattus norvegicus is assailing my olfactory system?

Yes, fully 10% of the stops under that act were in South Wales, and 6% were in Hampshire. The Greater Manchester and Merseyside police managed nine stops (0.0002%) between them.

And South Wales Police just got their attempt to siphon off more of ratepayers' money rejected, so they're going to have to make cuts. Much though I'd love the Chief Constable to carry out her threat to stop policing the M4, perhaps someone should draw her attention to this real waste.

Wouldn't it be nice if the boys and girls in blue actually reacted to what the populace want?
