Union /thin Blue Line Badge

Recommended Posts

This annoys me so much:

It would be nice to think this was just stupidity on the part of the Met but I don't believe that, I think it's deliberate. I would be willing to bet that, if someone did a statistically significant survey, they'd find that the only people to be 'offended' by such a badge are asshats like Jeremy F*cking Corbyn and his evil friends. 99% of everyone else in the country, immigrant or otherwise, couldn't give a toss.

yet forces do dress the cars up for gay parades...I dont think any of them should dress up in anything but uniforms...and act without fear or favour, as they are sworn to do.

If you are offended by the Union Flag, do not come here where you can look at it. What an **** article?

I think that's the point though isn't it? The people (i.e. immigrants, mainly Muslim) allegedly offended by the Union Flag are actually very unlikely to be offended by it at all.

Where's Cybernat and the other Jocks?

[edit to add] I find some uses of the union jack offensive, but to see coppers wearing it for an occasion like that wouldn't offend in the least.

I think that's true.

A proper survey would be a great idea, and IMO 99% either support or it aren't bothered would be about right.

Actually, now that I think of it, I'm reminded of an interview I heard on Radio 4 with an imam from somewhere in Manchester a few years back. The local council had banned an infants school from doing The Three Little Pigs as a play because it might offend Muslims. The interview started off with a line something like 'please tell me how offended you are by this, because I know you must be absolutely outraged that a school would do such a thing' and the imam replied, in a broad Lancashire accent, that he thought it was stupid, the Koran says you can't eat pork but says absolutely nothing about playing the part of a pig in a play and, further, that he was really annoyed that the press would now portray this as being some sort of Muslim thing when it was nothing of the sort. The interviewer was audibly upset by him absolutely refusing to play the victim.

Ha Ha! Not all Muslims are devils. Some run some good corner shops with nice pickles. ;)

Well, I draw the line at being called a cybernat, but I'm happy to give you my opinion...

Why the f$ck would I care about these guys wearing a b@stardised union jack?
