No wonder the police as an institution have become increasingly regarded as an ineffective, inefficient bunch of jobsworths – unfairly in my opinion because the majority of officers do a hard and often thankless task remarkably well considering the restrictions imposed on their actions by “political correctness”. But you do wonder, sometimes, if some senior officers undermine the reputation of the troops on the ground by their unwillingness to use discretion in cases of “political correctness”

Recently a conservative MP was the subject of a lengthy investigation by Sussex Police for the ultimate 21st century sin – racism. The Race Card was played by a man who claimed that the MP had described him as “unkempt” – thus demeaning his “gypsy” heritage.

In an email to Mr Loughton complaining of his treatment by the authority, Mr Francis said he was insultingly described in an official council document as unkempt, although he bathed regularly.
But Mr Loughton wrote back: ‘As regards the specific whinge about being described as “unkempt”, given the meaning of the word as “untrimmed, dishevelled and rough” it strikes me as eminently accurate.’
The MP, who describes Mr Francis as a ‘serial complainer’ and his most problematic constituent, added that the complaint was ‘another example of the whingeing, self-serving, poisonous b******s that seem to have become your hallmark’

After several months the investigation, which probably cost £100.000 did not lead to a prosecution and was filed for no action. Strange, is it not, that in this case the police claimed they had no option but to pursue the matter but could quite happily use their discretion and not pursue the matter of 1,000 suspicious deaths at Mid Staffs Hospital…..
