    Leon Brittain

    Regardless of what some might allege this man was a true friend of shooters in the UK and resisted much police pressure for increased fees and firearms controls. Probably the last Home Secretary who wasn't prepared to swallow wholesale the relentless propaganda of ACPO or the Police Federation regarding gun issues. Some speculate that this stance was to be the catalyst for attempts to then smear him with unwholesome allegations.
