Policeman sacked by kangaroo court

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

A copper from Merseyside has been sacked after his name turned up on the BNP membership list that was leaked in November.

Even though the BNP, odious as it is, is a legal political party, police officers aren’t allowed to be members.  The reason the police give is that being a member of the BNP means an officer isn’t going to treat ethnic minorities the same as white people, even if said officer has already gone through the extensive psycho-analysis to make sure they’re a good little prole.

PC Steve Bettley was suspended when the membership list was leaked last year despite denying that he was a BNP member.  He has now been sacked after an investigation during which the Black Police Association were fully consulted.  A spokesman for Merseyside Black Police Association said he was “satisfied that Pc Stephen Bettley was either a member or supportive of the aims and objectives of the BNP and therefore commend the inevitable decision made by Merseyside Police to dismiss him from service”.

So he got a fair hearing then.

    A member of the black police officers association can be expected to treat white people fairly?

    So what did the White Police Association have to say about this?

    Well, much as it pains me to say it, I’m with you on this one Wonko.

    “So what did the White Police Association have to say about this?”
    That would be the Police, they don’t need to put anything about being white in the title, so their official press release gives their opinion
    “A spokesman for Merseyside Police Federation said: “We are disappointed with the finding and sanction of the misconduct panel and do not believe that there is any evidence presented to the panel which would indicate that he was knowingly a member of the BNP.”

    surely this will go to an industrial tribunal?

    It would appear to be an ‘opinion’ that he ‘might’ have been a member?

    why are the BNP so bad? Surely, if they are so so bad they will be proscribed like a whole pile of Islamist supporting parties but they are not, so they cant be that bad?

    re patriation does seem to be a bad thing but is it any worse than pissing billions of quid of our kids money into the black hole of the banking crisis, we are moving into interesting times, the world is changing

    ridicule, if they are wrong (like the flat earth society) they will be laughed out of the room but this too seems sadly missing, why is everyone pussy footing around the issue and not going for a head on confrontation?

    Bernard manning was crap, not because he told racist jokes but because he was a crap comedian, in the day, everyone told racist jokes and everyone moved away from it, apart from BM because he was prevented by his lack of talent but it is what he remembered for are his paki jokes
