UK: Police banned from wearing Union Jack patch in tribute to Constable killed in line of duty in case it causes ‘offence’

Police officers wearing an emotive ‘thin blue line’ badge in tribute to PC David Phillips who was killed on duty have reportedly been told they are not allowed to display the patch because it may cause ‘offence’.

Metropolitan Police officers were apparently told they are forbidden to wear the badge – a black and white Union flag with a ‘thin blue line’ through it – because it could upset ‘some communities’.

Officers had been keen to display the poignant patch in tribute to father-of-two PC Phillips who was knocked down and killed by a stolen pick-up truck in Merseyside on Monday.


I hope they’re so offended they run back home to Mohammedisapedophileistan.
