Bobby’s Open Letter
My Police Oath and Declaration of Service is to serve the Queen and public with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality; upholding fundamental rights, protecting life and property whilst giving equal respect to all people. Our police forces protect us and many are good, honest and caring individuals who are doing their best to keep our communities safe. Some police officers, police staff and members of the community may share my concerns: concerns about what the police are being asked to do; concerns about oppressive government rule and their part enforcing this Coronavirus Act and lockdown measures. They see the erosion of trust occurring, human liberties and freedoms being removed from their family, friends and communities in which they live.
As a Police Constable and a member of our community, I challenge the directions being given by this government. I do not simply wish to acquiesce in this process and wish to restore community trust and a return to normalcy. This is, after all, a free democratic society and the people in the UK are demanding the truth, transparency and accountability from our government.
Every day the media is broadcasting death, uncontrollable cases and spikes of Covid-19. This negative reinforcement dominates our thoughts, conversations and lives.
“Project Fear is now on steroids” says D.U.P. MP, Sammy Wilson. It imposes the feeling of imminent threat, harm, stress and anxiety. Subjects are suppressed, more compliant, easier to subjugate, and they acquiesce to regulations without question. A true example of coercive and controlling behaviour.
We all witness disproportionate cycles of harsh lockdowns; restrictive tier levels have not worked in the last nine months. The virus is still present and has not dissolved, unlike our economy. However, if we behave, we can look forward to Christmas with our families as long as the windows remain open. To compensate, the New Year will bring further dehumanising lockdowns.
It is said that the definition of insanity is to repeat the mistakes of the past, expecting a different result.
These are questionable tactics, aided by failed computer modelling and delivered by biased agents who profiteer from Big Pharma. The true evidence must be reviewed thoroughly and publicly scrutinised to ensure proper process is adhered to. The preservation of our physical and mental health, while upholding our sovereignty, freedoms and basic human rights is paramount. Parliament, MPs and the public have demanded more transparency and honesty in the sharing of the data.
“The modelling advice with costs benefit analysis reports and economic impact statements should have been provided and in the public domain. As yet, it has not been produced.” – MP Con, Sir Charles Walker.
The education and future prospects of our children have been diminished. The livelihoods of millions of people hang in the balance. We have the highest levels of poverty in decades. Families are denied visits with their loved ones in hospitals and care homes. We cannot comfort dying relatives. Children’s suicide rates are up 40% with GP referral rates down for Cardio, Gastro and Renal down 66%, 64% and 57% respectively. Cancer screenings, other diagnostic testing and planned surgeries are delayed or cancelled, adding to the growing number of unintended health consequences of these restrictions (NHS F.O.I. request).
We are experiencing a complete dismantling of our economy, causing a £400 billion debt crisis, increases in taxes and inflation, and depletion of pension funds. Knowing that our children will be paying the price in decades to come is difficult to comprehend.
Our lives are not valued anymore, despite the mortality rate for the virus being less than 1% (NHS freedom of information request). Surely as human beings we cannot afford to keep making the same mistakes again.
Central to the government response is the enforcement of these restrictions. Our police forces have been propelled into unprecedented circumstances and demanded to enforce arbitrary rules in the name of health and wellbeing.
Citizens have been squeezed by the powerful hand of the state with the police being used as enforcers.
Public distrust in government and police is increasing as suspicions grow around their intentions. People are questioning agendas, corporate influence and nepotism. Social media reports large gatherings of concerned citizens in cities across the UK. Tensions and conflict between the public and the police will surely increase as shown in numerous countries in Europe, America, Canada and Australia. I imagine this will get worse when furlough ends and people try to return to jobs that no longer exist.
The Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, has not ruled out mandatory vaccines for all. Some people strongly oppose this infringement of bodily autonomy. Will the UK police chiefs insist that police officers, staff, and the public within their constabulary are vaccinated? Furthermore, will the police be utilised along with the armed forces to enforce this vaccine uptake and endorse vaccine passports so that citizens can gain their civil liberties back? If so, this measure will be wholly unacceptable, discriminatory, and against our human rights.
Please stop enforcing ANY restrictions and/or assisting agencies such as Public Health England and local councils.
If you agree and no longer wish your constabulary to enforce these rules then I invite you – all police officers regardless of rank; PCSOs, police staff, special constables, civilian staff, volunteers and any member of the public in this great country of ours to endorse this letter with your name and signature. Please then print, sign and post, or email to:
