Have your say

Would the media please stop using the ludicrous phrase, “bobbies on the beat”

It sounds like a phrase one would use about nursery school police officers.

In reality the police seemed to have largely ceased doing beat patrols. They study screens and fly about in fast cars.

Language does matter, and we should not romanticise authority professions.
