Fair Play, er Pay

Get your hands on a piece of history, so says the blurb for the baseball caps on eBay.

My thanks to correspondent CO19 who left a couple of comments regarding my disappointment at the fact that the Police Federation chose white for it’s baseball caps for the March last Wednesday. Those of us who had to work have forgone the chance of owning one of these pieces of history but my disappointment has been assuaged as now I can get one from eBay!!

At the time of writing there are no less than 8 of these icons of police history available:

Have a piece of history – today 23/1/2008 sees the UK police March in London for their right to fair pay – these caps have been issued to all officers attending the march. There is massive media coverage of the event.

This one for sale is brand new, un worn and ready for dispatch to the highest bidder

I am prepared to send this outside of the UK, but international bidders MUST state their location and check with me for postage costs.

Spookily most of the adverts seem to be up for sale from different people but nearly all have the same photograph and text. I thought we police were a bit more imaginative than that. It must be an attempt to claw back some of the £200 the penny-pinching Home Secretary has kept from us.

If you want one, you’d better get in there fast – there are only 16,995 left.

You can get yours here, here, here, here, here, here, here, or here.

(The last one is offering the proceeds to police charities.) 

If you don’t want a baseball cap, what about a Police March Carrier Bag & Poster, here & here
