For some reason, it would appear that ‘The Sun’ has managed to find yet another negative story about the UK Police…
The other story related to some Police oppos having a 5-minute jolly on some dodgems at a funfair. It is odd, because when I served in the Metropolitan Police, The Sun seemed to be quite ‘pro’ Police, so I wonder what has changed? Did a Police oppo stick their Editor on? Did someone from The Sun get knocked back from joining the Police ? who knows…
What stands out for me, however, is the amount of PRO Police responses we have seen, following these negative stories about our Police Oppos. For example, Bullshire Police (a fictional UK Police Force) got right onto the case of The Sun, as they pointed out that most people seemed to not be too bothered about some Police Oppos engaging in five minutes of ‘downtime’ (when I last went on some dodgems at a fun fair, I only managed to dart around for 3 minutes before staffing manning the ride kicked me off, ready for the next group of eager (paying) patrons).
