UK: Off-duty police told not to wear their uniforms because Muslims

Police were warned yesterday not to wear their uniforms in public when they are off duty, amid fresh fears of a Lee Rigby-style attack in Britain.

Officers were also told not to tell strangers they work for the police to protect them and their families from a jihadi attack.

Last night police also promised extra security measures to protect today’s Armed Forces Day events and the gay pride festival in London.

The Met Police’s Deputy Assistant Commissioner Helen Ball, said: ‘Our priority is to keep people safe and we continue to review our ability to prevent and respond to terrorist incidents and potential threats.

    I suspect it would be rather more effective to ensure that all policemen carried side arms at all times even off duty.

      But then they don’t get to feel morally superior to those ghastly Americans.

        Stop reading my mind!!!
        Just stop it!

      They would rather accommodate the Muslim threat than to be seen acting like those dreadful American “cowboys”.

    • They’d rather be butt raped.

        They’ll get the Chris Stevens treatment.

      ..and issued orders to shoot to kill all Muslim terrorists on sight, with a wide latitude on discretion

  • The Butterfly

    At no point does it occur to them to stop letting people like Lee Rigby’s killer into the country in the first place.

    • It is a mystery they wish not to solve.

    • DVult

      Lee Rigby’s killer should have been turned over to his regiment to do as they liked.

  • Alain

    Police and military having to hide in their own countries tells us much. So I ask if this is a sign of defeat or victory for the enemy.

    • Yes it is a defeat. Cameron should resign, he is Islam’s arse-licker.

      • DVult

        Just station snipers around the off duty policemen and if anybody attacks then shoot them dead. When the snipers are otherwise unoccupied they could shoot dead anyone holding up a sign advocating beheading then the child rapists.

      • WalterBannon

        resign, is that the new way of saying hang from the neck for treason?

    • k1962

      It’s quite unbelievable isn’t it? It’s like the lunatics running the asylum.

  • Xavier

    Cowering in fear is an effective strategy for dealing with terrorists.
    The U.S. has been using it for years.

    • Oh my but it is a winning strategy.

    • Alain

      I think the same thing has happened in every Western country to be fair.

  • Gary

    Terrorism works, that’s why Muhammed used it to force people to submit to the Religion Of Peace .

  • Perfectchild

    David Camron as UK Prime Minister publicly said the day after Lee Rigby’s murder:

    “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act… it is an utter perversion of the truth to pretend anything different ”

    So, nothing to do with islam. Only twisted individuals. No conspiracy. “…go about our normal lives”.

    So the odds of it ever happening again are minuscule.

    That’s a relief. I’m going on a beach-holiday to Tunisia.

    • Xavier

      $100 for prayer bumps.

    Kinda related. Did anyknow that U.S. soldiers stationed in the Mid-East can get two months in jail for smoking in public during Ramadan? Imagine putting your life on the line to protect a bunch of fat, worthless Emirs only oto be treated like this.!

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    A person should have the right to express himself or herself , Muslims are setting new laws in this world?

  • John

    This amounts to The State lowering its public profile. It has to lower its gaze, as it were.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The Met will likely outsource their day to day operations to local Muslim gangs soon. Why not.

  • MRHapla

    and England surrenders to the Muslim invaders.
