What next.............Eddie Stobart as Inspecting Officer?

#1
Just seen this on defence intranet. Got me thinking, why is a copper - basically a civilian - presenting medals? Is it because they're military policemen? If so then surely medics should have theirs presented by a surgeon and the Loggies by Eddie Stobart or maybe Norbert Dentressangle?

Fifty Colchester-based Royal Military Police (RMP) officers have been honoured by a senior civilian police officer for their work in Afghanistan and how that has helped in tackling drugs and terrorism in the UK.

Heroin at an all time low street price, production in Afghanistan at an all time high

Great work chaps, here have some medals and lets see if we can use that to divert attention from the real facts

We had the head of Islington Police as the VIP at my Passing Out Parade and we are an artillery unit! His speech was especially irrelevent when he started talking about knife crime. WTF?

Yep, its unlikely the dropshorts would ever have the precision to be effective against knifecrime....

Utter disgrace.

It is entirely inappropriate that our brave Royal Military Police are 'honoured' by a civilian police officer. Whilst there are some superficial similiarities (I'm thinking the name here), the roles are so different that a civpol officer is completely the wrong figurehead.

An author of children's stories, such as a modern-day Enid Blyton, would surely be more fitting?

At Hendon police college the piccies of all the previous passing out parades are on the wall.....plenty of military officers have been the inspecting officer. They probably just pick whoever is free on a particular afternoon....
