Well, presumably the head of this organization is going to be British, so it's pretty much assumed that he'll be rather effeminate.

Never read memoirs of British boarding school students.

I'm going to respond to this baseless slander with a wry wit and a shot of scotch.

There was no evidence that J. Edgar was a cross dresser, subby.

It replaces the Serious Organised Crime Agency, which was formed in April 2006.



So this is the "This Time We're Really Serious Organised Crime Agency?"

In a few years, it will be replaced with the "I Really Mean It This Time Organized Crime Agency".

True dat. She was not a gay cross-dresser. She was dead butch. We're talking Hemingway's man cave levels of butch.

But she always dressed up as Hamilton on Halloween. Not the banknote Hamilton, Margarite Hamilton (this bit I am making up).

If by 'formed' you mean 'changed the name from SOCA to NCA' then, yes, big news.

Why are they calling this organization the "British FBI" when MI5 has been the British FBI for decades? True, their mandates might be slightly different, but like the FBI, MI5 handles domestic spying and crime, while MI6 has handled the overseas stuff like the CIA does (only with more knowledge of local culture and languages, perhaps, given the British Imperial legacy) since World War II or thereabouts.

Viewers of the long running popular TV series on the MI5 (The Piglet Files*) may back me up on this.

*Just kidding. That show was not long-running or all that popular, but I like comedies better than dramas.
I hate all shows about people doing their jobs. I hate cop shows, coroner shows, DA shows, lawyer shows, doctor shows, judge shows, reality shows, White House shows, everything. Unless it is a comedy or a documentary like those delightful off-bet shows that British comedians such as the Monty Python crew or Baldrick do.

Now that the Serious Organized Crime Agency is no more, it's high time they created a Silly Organized Crime Agency to combat silly organized crime.

Monty Python cast members could offer valuable expert advice on the subject as consultants.

Silly organized crime has long been neglected, especially in the are of finance and banking. Upper Class Twits are a menace and should be stopped. Baby Nappers and Gangs of Grannies have made the streets of the UK virtually uninhabitable, and I have absolutely nothing to say against the Piranha Brothers, who are the salt of the Earth and I'd sooner chop me own legs off with a nail file , but clear the UK is suffering from silly crime on an enormous scale, whether it is highway lupin robbers or protection racketeers leaning on the British Army ("it's no longer just a man's life in the British Army").

Furthermore, there is not nearly enough piracy but too many silly crimes are being committed against the environment, exacerbating global warming. More pirates, fewer modern art projects. That's what Britain needs.

It pays to get all your knowledge about current affairs from comedies. The world is a much brighter and happier place for it.

A case in point. This is what a British FBI car looks like.

It's nothing like MIB.

They should give these cars to the Silly Organized Crime Agency and get vintage Fords for the real FBI.

brantgoose: like the FBI, MI5 handles domestic spying and crime


Countering organised crime, where unrelated to terrorism or other issues affecting national security, is the bailiwick of law enforcement agencies, including the NCA, not the Security Service. They did have a remit to assist the police in intelligence gathering and assessment, but this was passed to SOCA on its creation.

How long until this agency's privatized like the Royal Mail?

/Hell, I'm surprised they didn't just merge all of England's police agencies into one like they did in Scotland
