    Thanks for putting this back on the ‘web. I missed it first time around. NJ is articulate, decent, pragmatic. His blog has raised my levels of respect for the police, and given me a better understanding of what they do under very trying circumstances. I really don’t understand why his senior officers could have seen it as a reason to terminate his career.

    If you know the bloke personally, please pass on my thanks and best wishes. When his book comes out, I’ll recommend it to everybody I know.

    Great that this is up on the web again – being out of the UK over the last 22 years I missed it first time around. NJ depicts all too clearly the dead-end world I left behind. No doubt it was truth-telling that got him into trouble with his superiors. Things seem to have grown far worse than “back in my day” and they were pretty dire then. Can’t understand why NJ and his colleagues haven’t given in to despair a long time ago, and many kudos and respect to them that they continue to follow their profession.
