 Given that Norfolk is getting rid of all our PCSOs, the mind boggles about the sort of thing that may be set up by folks doing it DIY fashion .......... after all, I thought that the whole point about local councils was that they are local people getting together and taking responsibiity for things that need doing, for the common good ... in a democratic way  ........... 

It's just that whichever political party happens to be in control in Westminster at the time, brings in controls to stop LAs doing what their electorate wants in order to manipulate events without it (they think) reflecting badly on the party in power at Westminster.
