Bouncers allowed to give on the spot fines?

Apparently so. Along with various other selected individuals.

And access police records to check whether you've got a criminal record. But if you've done nothing wrong, you've got nothing to hide. :banghead: Another erosion of our civil liberties by the Fourth Reich.

    There is no way I would EVER accept a police penalty notice from anyone other than a PC or PCSO.
    If a bouncer tried to fine me £80 for swearing then I'm afraid I'll be seeing them in court.

    The only sort of fine I would ever accept off a council employee would be one for littering.


    I wait to see how many accredited persons suddenly think they have the power to detain people who refuse details e.t.c. Where I work they already work beyond their remit and it pisses me off no end.

    A legislative body willing to dole out arbitrary powers, and a private security force only too willing to take them on. Great times.

    You're basically giving a sector with a whole bunch of crooks embedded in it the distinct impression that they have the powers of Police.
