Papers please!

More authoritarian nonsense, this time giving the police the power to harass anyone they don't like the look of, whether or not the police officer has a reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed! If the person objects to being harassed, it's a £5000 fine due to "obstructing" the police!

Has the government got any ideas about dealing with crime which actually address the problem, which is a lack of social cohesion between communities, a failing education system, and a discredited foreign policy? Whatever happened to tough on the causes of crime?
