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.

            Any civil war requires a degree of courage on at least ONE side. Great Britain has a huge courage deficit which is why it has not been “Great” for many, many years.

          • The event horizon to civil war or dhimmitude is getting short.

            We will see how this plays out soon.

        It takes a while to turn a ship, and it appears very slow at first, as if nothing is happening, especially compared to the ‘news-cycle’. But there are signs it is turning, and that people are waking up. Once the change becomes obvious things will happen quickly.

      • Maggat

        I sincerely hope you are right.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Really? Have you any evidence regarding the “why not”? We know the MSM has a narrative, so do tell! I’ve relatives in Britain who give me no reason to believe anything will change. Britain is already quite toasted, so it is just a matter of time before all recognize this call it “toast”.

    Britain needs a Francisco Franco or Augusto Pinochet more than ever…

      What?!? Why?!? How can fascism save Great Britain?

      • UCSPanther

        Britain (or the other European nations) may very well end up under military rule, especially in the style of those two dictators if this instability keeps up.

    Whatever happened to John Bull? Rule Britannia? Land of Hope and Glory? Where did this compulsion to apologize for their own existence to every ignorant savage in the whole world come from? What did earlier generations of Britons ever do to deserve this?

    ‘PC’ used to mean ‘Police Constable’.

    They should use this as an opportunity to find people who need to be deported.

    Since when does the Union Jack cause offense in the UK? Do the goat humpers not even realize what country they are living in? If they find the Union Jack offensive it is time for them to move on.

    Anyone taking offense should be pointed to the exit.
