It's hard to believe this was a decade ago. Reading ARRSE posts from 2002 there's a common theme: "why is this country so fcked up", "we can't re-take the Falklands now"...Symbol
M'Hammed Azzaoui, a 38-year-old Moroccan, said he could not wear the symbol of another faith. (well, you know where the door is....)
He started an employment tribunal claim for race discrimination last year which he later dropped. (Hardly surprising....what a tit!)
Under the proposal ethnic recruits joining the Met would have been able to choose to wear the traditional badge or the new version.
Anyway, at least we no longer suffer the absurd crap doled out by Cool Britannia (such as with the above).
