Nato Summit; Wales 2014
Are you being fucking serious?

Quote:With just two days to go until the start of the Nato summit in Newport, the security presence in both the host city and Cardiff is increasing significantly. Here’s a quick look at the main elements of the security operation.

Police

Representatives from every UK police force are on duty in Cardiff and Newport this week, with around 9,500 officers patrolling the streets of the two cities, as well as the main summit venues.

Saw four massive Chinooks and an AWACS flying overhead today and I'm 40 miles away. Impressive to see I must say, but is all this really necessary? You'll be lucky to see 10 policemen on the streets of Cardiff on any one given day, let alone 9,500.

During the EU Summit in 1994 we also had 9,000 cops in the city. But then that was years before 9-11 and the subsequent security hysteria.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
