Ooh I feel another Prats of The Week Award "coming upon me".
This time it goes to our ever "popular" and "efficient" Home Orifice.
Well loyal readers, wayback last April when the G20 protests were underway, a group of "anarchists" were nicked for impersonating police officers.
Some months later the Home Orifice, in its infinite wisdom, continues to pursue these "miscreants" through the courts for their "crime" of impersonating the police.
Now under normal circumstances I would totally agree with HO on this one, impersonating a police officer is a very serious issue and needs to be dealt with.
However, may I indulge you with some factoids here?
The "anarchists" were in fact a motley collection of students and "young professionals".
The "police costumes" were, to the uneducated eye, unlikely to be mistaken for the real Mac Coy.
One woman was dressed in a black bra, another had red high heels and stockings. The males of the group (long haired I would point out) dressed in blue boiler suits and the occasional riot helmet.
They sported a fake plastic machine gun and blasted the Ride of the Valkyries through a set of speakers.
Obviously they could easily be mistaken for real police officers!
Well, Keir Starmer, the director of public prosecutions, thinks so and decided last month that 11 of the Space Hijackers (for that is their name) will face a four-day trial at a magistrates' court in February.
Leah Borromeo, a freelance writer who was arrested wearing a black bra and boiler suit, said:
"If I'm guilty of anything it's of impersonating a stripper, not a police officer."
