Fashion police

with one comment

Women police officers are rebelling against their official-issue trousers, which they claim make them look like Simon Cowell.

They say that suppliers have no idea what a size 12 looks like (it’s obviously a crime figure), and that:

“Women police officers have constantly brought up the fact they do not have a proper uniform. If you are going out there, protecting the public and being in confrontational circumstances, you need to feel professional and confident.

“If you are going out there looking like a sack of spuds, you are not feeling confident and you are not going to do your job properly.

Personally I couldn’t give a monkey’s whether they look like this or like this, so long as they arrive promptly when I call them, and do their utmost to catch the scrotes who break glass in the middle of the night, mug the old lady around the corner, burgle my neighbours, or defraud me out of my taxes once they are elected to Parliament!

  1. Ah, but you forget that in terms of equality, looking different is the right way forward (apparently). By making female officers look different, you shatter equality, but by making them look the same you will probably shatter their human rights.
