Diktatwatch: Why Don't You Ask Them?













Not, perhaps, the most scandalous Diktatwatch I'll showcase on here, but an illustration of the degree to which public service management disregards the concerns of the people who actually do the job.

Ever wondered how new Metropolitan Police uniforms are designed? Well, apparently the task falls to students at the London College of Fashion. Winning designs included trousers with adjustable waistband, and a cape!

As policeman blogger Totally Un-PC puts it:

"WHY DON’T YOU ASK A BLOODY POLICE OFFICER WHAT UNIFORM WE NEED!!!!?"
Why indeed.

Indeed.... I'm glad I don't stand alone brother? or is it sister? or comrade these days?

Anyway... thanks for stopping by.

...because cops, however hard-working and decent folk they are, are not a sector of society particularly known for their fashion sense and nor, I suspect, would they wish to be. :-)
