“Hands up if you believe that the report by Tom Winsor was impartial,” said Paul McKeever. “I notice you didn’t put your hand up, Home Secretary”
There then followed much mirth and laughter and the Home Secretary looked like a bulldog chewing a wasp. How satisfying it was and in that moment she felt the wrath of 130,000 officers and their families and their extended families. The Home Secretary during her conference address took great pleasure in stating that she was “telling it as it is” however she looked very uncomfortable when we, too, told it as it was. Theresa, dearest, what is good for the goose………! I’ll leave you to fill in the rest yourself.
I normally leave any replies to speak for themselves. However, in response to the last post about Tom Winsor I have faithfully reproduced below a comment contained in the replies section by Rather Annoyed on May 14th 2012:
Don’t forget that Theresa May is shareholder in Prudential which is the largest shareholder in G4S so she is lining her pockets as well! Visit http://bit.ly/KgOUNa and you will Theresa May’s entries on her Register of Interests. 26th November 2002 you will see states a shareholding in Prudential. Visit http://bit.ly/KlLXNV and you will see that Prudential has a 6% shareholding in G4S (the largest shareholder) – proof enough that these fat cats are getting fatter by robbing us, screwing us, and privatising the best police service in the world for their own gain?!
If this is true how can we really trust the impartiality of anyone dealing in this sorry business, from politicians to business leaders. They all seem to be p*ssing in the same pot and want us to believe that it is for our own good that we should put our lives on the line every day that we go out to protect the public and society at large. I’m certain if I tried this with my uPSD they would be lining me up for criminal charges. Why is no-one asking them questions?
On a slightly different tack, I have been in contact with the supplier of the now world famous T-Shirt bearing Theresa May’s head and the logo “Get Shafted and Carry On” and have been asked to co-ordinate all enquiries into sales for these shirts. Those of you, and there have been lots, who have already emailed will be contacted very soon in respect of your own orders. Demand has been a lot higher than anticipated so please bear with us. The price is anticipated to be in the region of about £10 plus postage and packing but I’ll let you know.
