Just read on BBC news that the NABPO (National Association of Black Police Officers ) have had their funding suspended due to financial irregularities. 2 points: Watch them scream racism at the top of their voices, and why do they get funding anyway?

They get funding because dey is black, if a group called itself the "White" Police association and campaigned for preferential treatment for itself, they would be booted from the force for being racist.

Recruitment and promotion should be on merit, not skin colour otherwise it makes a mockery of the whole idea of equality.

You mean the colour of your skin and you ethnicity can make you "more equal" than others. Who would have thought such a thing! Just waiting for Trevor Phillips and Chakrabati to appear on the news giving their unbiased opinion. I am so F*ckin sick of this country, what is going to be left for my kids?

They'll say they've been framed and that it's all just a mistake and the recipts were in another drawer all the time - 'onest guv!

Fecking outrageous idea and should be banned, certainly not funded by anybody but themselves.
Might as well start a Metropolitan Police branch of the All White Brotherhood

Actually, why do they receive any funding at all? Does any other TU or staff professional association receive government funding and if not, why not.

Their funding should come from members subscriptions. Perhaps an FOI request is required?

Just before Sven screams for it, here is the link and the text:

Anti-Honky Rozzers Cash Clamped

Black police group funding frozen

National Black Police Association funding has been frozen while accounts are studied for evidence of "improper activities", the Home Office has said.
This was because of "inadequate financial controls and a lack of other financial management procedures", a spokeswoman said.

Evidence of improper financial activity could lead to a fraud investigation.

The association, which was told of the decision at the start of the month, received £180,000 funding last year.

The issues had been discovered while the Home Office auditors studied NBPA accounts, the spokeswoman added.

"The [NBPA] cabinet were informed on 2 April that, due to inadequate financial controls and a lack of other financial management procedures being in place, their grant and grant in aid funding for administration was frozen with effect from 1 April," she said.

Police Review (today) - NBPA owes Greater Manchester Police £140,000 relating to its annual conference last year. In a statement a GMP spokeswoman said ' GMP remains in discussions with the national Black Police Association in relation to last year's conference'. Kieth Jarrett , president of the NBPA said that the association's 2007 conference will go ahead this autumn. He added that he did not fear that the NBPA may close due to its financial difficulties because there was still a need for it to support its members. It would continue with or without Home Office funding.

The Home Office has ordered the NBPA to work out how it has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds in Governmnet grants in the last four years.

An official letter, sent by the Home Office, stated that the organisation will get no further funding until it can properly account for the money it has received and the money it will recieve.

Formed in 1998.

1999 : The NBPA receives £45,000 in funding from the Home Office.

2002 : The NBPA is registered as a charity and recieves £70,370 from the Home Office.

2003 : The Home Office grants the NBPA £81,213.

2004 : The NBPA recives £123,638 from the Home Office.

2005 : The NBPA recieves £172,610 from the Home Office.

2006 : The NBPA recieves !180,000 from the Home Office.

1 Apr 2007 - The NBPA grants are frozen by the Home Office due to concerns about 'financial irregularities' and the 'lack of meaningful and accurate accounts'.

Police review revealed that the association, which is registered as a charity, has submitted no audited accounts to either the Home Office or the Charity Commission since at least 2003.

A Home Office spokeswoman said that the charity had received a total of £672,832 in Home Office grants since 1999.

Keith Jarrett said "I cannot find any evidence of dishonesty but maybe I am looking at it through rose tinted glasses". When asked if he was confident the auditors would not find any evidence of wrong doing, Mr Jarrett replied "I am confident of that but I have been known to be wrong in the pqast. I cannot swear for everyone".

The NBPA is 'being chased' by the Charities Commission for failing to file accounts for almost 3 years.

Nothing will happen. It will be a big non-event, just like the Home Office accounts, the DSS accounts and various other govt depts that can't match their figures. It will all just plod on.

Ummm, what exactly do you need £180k for each year? Thats £15k per month - perhaps an FOI asking for a breakdown of how the equivalent sum of 6 PC's per year is spent may be in order?

We don't need one, whilst on a two day "diversity awareness" course that my whole force had to attend at some stage, police, support staff, even the unpaid volunteers, had to go to. Nice multicultural buffet both days though.

The question was asked "what about a white heterosexual male police association"

Answer (from our learned diversity trainer) "you've got the Fed (police federation)".

with that potential bananna skin passed over quickly it was back to the re-education.

whats even scarier is as a 'white' officer you can join the ranks of the BPA, but, and its a big but, you can't attend thier closed meetings or vote on thier matters. makes me sick.
 
#18
Why did the BPA come into existence again?
 
#19
to promote the interests of black and minority ethic members. Now in my book that was fair enough at the time. but they've now become a sisnister pressure group.

Does that not equate to Positive Racism? (or just plain racism)
