The video below shows a WPC at a Palestine rally attended by Jew-haters and others chanting “Free Palestine”. It is a sackable offence for a Police officer to express political views and after a new media pile on, this WPC has now been suspended pending an enquiry. The statement “Free Palestine” is an explicitly political statement. Some, like Hamas, take it to mean wipe out all the Jews and have a one state solution that Hitler would have been proud of.
Others while backing Hamas bang on about Israeli genocide and oppression and ignore rockets sent each day into Israel not targetting any military combatant but just to kill Jews. All too easily this slides into overt antisemitism. And when the Police are seen to be taking sides, as they did when taking a knee in support of a Marxist organisation that wants to, inter alia, defund the Police, they lose all credibility. Anyhow, rules are rules and this WPC needs to be fired to show that the Met really is impartial. Which, of course, it is not.
I wonder if this is the best way for a police officer to behave? pic.twitter.com/86xy4Jg4F6— Jake Wallis Simons (@JakeWSimons) May 18, 2021
