One in one hundred wants slotting. Official.

At the Bradford fire it's said some of the 'hooligans' were braver than anyone else when it came to running back into that tremendous heat to haul spectators out.

Same with coppers. The meanest of them may be the only ones who'll perform when the going gets tough. We're spoilt in this green and pleasant land. Surprises await us.

Could be seen as immature, school-boyish and, (drumroll), sexist. Possibly even nonce-like. Not getting at you, activism is the key to a free society, just saying.

I have to expand on this. I know a man who shall remain nameless here. He's a regular at the festivals with his electrical trickery. He's linked to the provocateur Charlie Vietch. One of his 'jokes' is to call bankers a very similar word through his megaphone. It's all aimed at bringing down the tone of the protest and setting up divisions. In this case a gender division. Many women do not like you referring to their female parts as an insult. The stubble part of the joke indicates shaven female parts which suggests pedophiliac tendencies.

Or is there a different reason that the word constable provokes such hilarity? I don't think onomatopoeia is exactly the word you're looking for, I'm assuming you mean 'words that sounds like other words' whatever the word for that is.

Let me put this in straight Yorkshire talk.
Laughing at the word 'constable' because it sounds a bit like two other words makes you sound like a nonce which is exactly what the spooks want in order to discredit your message. Every time a protestor laughs at the word constable for that reason they sound like a nonce.

Whooaaaaa. I just meant cos its sounds like the C word. I don't know why you're saying I sound like a nonse.. whats the C word got to do with underage girls?

You lost me after the sexism part, that part I could kind of get.

For the record: I don't go around shouting CUNSTable. I just think its funny and ironic.

Chill man.

Have you missed the stubble part of the ever so funny joke?

But you have admitted the likeness to the C word, as you put it, is part of the joke. Why? Where were you born from? It's no joke and it isn't respectful to use it as a joke or insult.

One of the most embarrassing incidents of my life was getting my finger SERIOUSLY bitten by a horse while I was talking to a well known musician in the (chilled out) musicians camping field at Glastonbury Festival. I shouted "YOU C" at the top of my voice. Talk about raised eyebrows.

Anyway.
Point is if you call constables officers you've consented to their authority over you. Don't do it. They're equals.

I wasn't aware of that, I'll bare that in mind from now on.

Sorry I lost it a bit there. I'm blaming the stress of the Bradford Fire investigation for my emotional excess.

You obviously have great potential. I guess you're aware of this guy. Skip to 8:50 to see police and protestors working together to escort the BBC propaganda unit off-site.

I think you are reading too much into terms. A police "officer" is a generic term to describe a member of the police force. They are all "officers". A constable is a rank below police sergeant. It would not be appropriate to call a police sergeant a constable, because that would be wrong, but it is appropriate call a constable and "officer", because that's a truism.

Policing in the UK is aligned to the Peelian principles, which is to say - policing is by consent. The police do not "enforce" the law per se. To be honest, tis is where the US fail, but that's another thread!

Hi TechUnique! Nice Video.
At times when there is no one to voice for the people or even for yourself, one must stand and speak for himself or for the people like the young boy. Its just a matter of standing up for what you truly believe.
Recently I had a similar situation and made me realize that we are at our strongest when we are left alone in the dark.
Thank for this post it is very realizing like an experience.
Cheers!
