Im not afraid of the fear of fear

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged police forces to keep officers on the beat in an effort to reduce the public's "fear of crime" and that if the police actually spent more time tackling the fear of crime, the public would be less afraid of fear and there would be no crime.

In a speech, he disputed the Tories' claim that Britain is "broken" but was just a bit ''messed up'' and there was no need to be afraid of fear.

In his speech to the Conservatives' spring conference on Sunday, party leader David Cameron reiterated his claim that Britain is a "broken society", citing family breakdown rates crime, and that the US hit TV show 'The Wire' was ''brilliant''.

But Mr Brown said: "We don't tackle the fear of crime by cultivating it, by claiming our society is broken and spreading fear, ''Sometimes as damaging as the fear of crime is the crime of fear."

He criticised US TV show 'The Wire' and that it spread ''fear througout the nation'' and would be setting up a new branch of government called the 'Fear Council' who would have powers to ''arrest those who were afraid of fear or afraid of being arrested''.

The spokesperson for the UK charity ''Don't Be Afraid'' slammed the governments new idea calling it ''fearmongering''.
