Will British police forces be required to stump up to provide an amount of personal protection to a celebrity that is equal to that he or she expects in his own country, even where that parity is not required? Will it change the amount of protection (and taxpayers' cost) currently given to, say, holocaust deniers, or Islamic fundamentalists, visiting this country?
Will people be given a level of armed protection not normally allowed? Does it over time give a new level of authorisation for foreign policemen and bodyguards to be allowed to operate armed in this country? Will it change the nature of armed protection itself, specifically the rules of engagement of these bodyguards?
It can be argued, quite properly, that the operational details of protection arrangements should remain unpublished, but more importantly some facts, such as those mentioned above, should be made public.
Whatever the outcome of this latest Decision, you can be assured of one particular aspect - you won't get a vote on it!
