Can you expand? Are the Police a noted authority on the weather, taxation, the economy, public services, what other countries are like? Are the Police the first leave bad countries typically?

Shouldn't that be "...when a policeman starts leaving the country..."
Or have we got a silent torrent of emigrating coppers?
Tim adds: In the article, yes, a torrent of emigrating coppers.

Well, he talks about "hundreds of British police officers". I'd be interested seeing that as a percentage of the total force versus recruitment. Are we talking a net loss of officers? Not like you to not query the numbers, Tim.
