Tom Winsor is right? The Blue collar clock in clock out attitude must change.

Its not often that I agree with Tom Winsor but on this occasion I do! The blue collar, clock in clock out attitude that he spoke of the other day must change.

What he said: “I believe that too many police officers regard themselves, quite wrongly, as blue collar workers and actually when they think harder about it, they are actually members of a profession which is on a far higher plane than that,” he added.

What he was thinking: I believe that police officers are blue collar workers, they are fat and lazy and clock in and clock out and so deserve to be paid a pittance and to have their terms of employment re-written.

What he should have been  thinking & saying:  I  regard police officers, quite wrongly, as blue collar workers and actually when I think harder about it, they are actually members of a profession which is on a far higher plane than that.

As such they deserve the remuneration they get and in fact it is my job as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary  in waiting  to change the Governments perception particularly Theresa May & Nick Herbert’s to make amends to the reports I wrote which I now realise were incorrect and do not do justice to the police service.

I believe that if Tom Winsor had spent his 40 days researching the police properly instead of trying to find evidence to support  David Cameron’s 2006 speech and the rehash of Sheehy then I think he would have written different reports to those he has now produced.

This is truly going to be a disaster for the public and the police but sadly I think we are too far down the road now to change direction.

    The reason you think, (erroneously), that we are too far down the road to change direction is because you respect rules. This is where we, (the activists), come in. We know that the direction can be changed using the kind of techniques that have driven you to distraction in the past when applied to other issues. These techniques are not controlled by man-made rules.
