Up the Workers

The Police Regulations forbid police officers from taking an active part in politics & also prevent us from taking any form of industrial action.

Why is it then that the Met Black Police Association can do something so political as to take active action in seeking to prevent black & ethnic minorities from joining the police?

They announced recently that it would boycott recruitment drives among ethnic minorities, saying it would use an advertising campaign to “actively discourage” black and Asian people from joining the force because they were treated unfairly.

Sounds like political & industrial action to me.
