Police impostor spotted at memorial service..

A man wearing a police uniform with more braid on than Idi Armin did… Was none other than that well known non – police officer Tom Windsor…

Tom  Windsor… A man that has shown just how much he dislikes the police…

Too angry to post…. Grrrrrrrrrrrr

Update… The Fed gaffer knew this monkey was going to wear our uniform and advised him not too… He (not surprisingly) ignored the advice and did it anyway…

If Hammond had worn a Marine Corp uniform they would have been hell to pay…

Because it’s us nobody gives a fcuk…

  1. “Walt” Winsor……

    • Brief Encounter

      In a way I think he can be forgiven for dressing up if in fact all the other delegates did so. Had he gone in mufti no one would have known that he was there. I appreciate why you guys do not approve of what he is doing but I don’t think that it is appropriate to be too critical of him for mimicking what all previous HMIs would have done that is to have worn a uniform.

  2. Section 90 of the Police Act 1996 (‘the Act’) provides the legal base for considering this issue and it
    defines the following offences:
    1) Any person who with intent to deceive impersonates a member of a police force or
    special constable, or makes any statement or does any act calculated falsely to
    suggest that he is such a member or constable, shall be guilty of an offence and liable
    on summary conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a
    fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, or to both.
    2) Any person who, not being a constable, wears any article of police uniform in
    circumstances where it gives him an appearance so nearly resembling that of a
    member of a police force as to be calculated to deceive shall be guilty of an offence
    and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard
    3) Any person who, not being a member of a police force or special constable, has in his
    possession any article of police uniform shall, unless he proves that he obtained
    possession of that article lawfully and has possession of it for a lawful purpose, be
    guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 1
    on the standard scale.
    4) In this section – “article of police uniform” means any article of uniform or any
    distinctive badge or mark or document of identification usually issued to members of
    police forces or special constables, or anything having the appearance of such an
    article, badge, mark or document
    As can be seen, this section of the Act covers a wide range of offences relevant to clothing that
    closely resembles police uniform. It creates offences for both possession of such an article of
    clothing (Subsection 3), as well as an offence in respect of wearing the apparel (Subsection 2).
    Subsection 1 specifically relates to the intention of an individual to deceive and creates an offence
    in respect of an act or statement made by him/her which is designed to suggest that he/she is a
    member of a police force. Nuff Sed.

  3. Words fail me. This man is despised by the rank and file. Surely he must know this and as such should have shown some respect and declined his invitation. Also would like to know what right he has to wear the uniform, especially one covered in regalia suggesting he has done something worthwhile. TOSSER!!

  4. As he seems to think he is a copper can someone make a complaint to the IPCC about him?
    Does he have a power if arrest? If not surely he is impersonating a police officer? Does he have a duty to act if he sees ( presuming he knows what a crime is) a crime being commited?

    Next who invited him to this, is it an event paid for and organised by the job or is it the Fed? If its the Fed who is getting the boot?

    He has destroyed policing and insulted thousands of officers calling the dumb and fat without a shred of real proof. Why are the Fed not jumping up and down about this? They are doing this big review but still can’t be bothered to actually do what proper coppers want them to do. I and everyone I’ve work with are furious that worm thinks he has the right to wear the uniform. Anyone with computer skills should do some John Terry type picture if The weasel in different dress up outfits.

  5. The level of my current feelings of disgust has placed any ability to adequately express myself beyond reach.

  6. I would have thought that anyone impersonating a Constable in the current financial situation facing Constables might be better dealt with under the MHA. Is there a picture of him anywhere?

  7. PCCs next??

  8. I’ve seen less rope and rigging on a yacht.
    He’s not impersonating a police officer , he is the 2015 UK austerity Americas cup entry or a sad speccy ginger version of cats cradle.

    The man is a (insert your own expletive).

  9. You were so angry Shij you posted it twice………..I agree……why are we not treating this man with total contempt? Give him enough rope and he will hang himself-the rope seems to be across his chest already…

  10. Definite high score on the risk assessment, wouldn’t have got into my cell block with all that string on…..On the other hand, I would have been quite content to entertain him for Impersonatrion, uniform offences,and possibly being delusional as to his status.and Incitement to dissafection………

  11. Beats me WHY he’d want to dress up as a hotel commissionaire?

    Or maybe it’s his railway regulator outfit?

    Odious little twunt.

    Laughable, if it weren’t for the damage he’s caused and the pieces of silver he’s taken.

  12. Won’t do any good but would be nice if it at least gets enough votes to cause some embarrassment


  13. The trouble with you lot is that you have no sense of fun.
    We should encourage the buffoon to wear the uniform on a daily basis. indeed I was very upset when I saw he was sporting a cap with silver braided peak, when I would have expected a Tricorn Hat with Swan’s Feather Plumage. In particular I was very impressed with the silver braid which extended the length of his trousers seam, very smart!!
    Can we now expect that Tom will also don Riding Breeches and Spurs and mounted on a chatger will gallop to his office each day.

    • Colleagues and friends of mine have died in that uniform, having earned the right to wear it. Buffoon or not, there is no way I will encourage that odious lickspittle to wear it.

      (Not a dig at you SP old bean, I recognise your usual tongue-in-cheek humour of course!)

  14. There’s a sounclip of uncle Toms explanation as to why he decided to wear a uniform
    (you have to download it) 2 secs – but take deep breaths and have your blood pressure medication handy.

    This is the twunt who waxed lyrical about the perception of uniforms and those that were them.
    YET he fundementaly fails to heed his own teachings.

    I genuinely cannot express how much I detest this man and how offended I feel by his action and complicity in turning the cops into a government dept PLC.

    • I only hate him even more having listened to him spout that it’s not a police uniform, although conceeding it looks a bit like one (!) and that he wears it out of respect even though he realises that his wearing it is ‘controversial’ i.e. every officer in the land who has earned the right to wear it looks at him in his in disgust.

      Basically, “I know you lot don’t like it but I’m going to wear it anyway”.

      Utter, utter stain.

  15. If he insists on wearing the uniform, I want to see him do the bleep test!

  16. Angry and disgusted.
    Nowt else to say about it really. Petition signed.
    Anything from the Fed yet? Thought not.

  17. Nothing from the national Fed
    Nothing from the main stream media

    What do they have in common, both in the governments pocket and couldn’t care less about the thoughts if real coppers.

      Sadly that seems to be true.
      The one time in the history of modern policing when you might hear from them and they are silent.
      In the meantime you continue to pay your subs.

  18. The fed is fine and some instances excellent at divisional and branch level.
    The problem lies within the self serving gourmet meal eating lot at leatherbed.
    stop examining your navels and earn your money or give it back to those of us who actually police.

  19. Doxon of Dick Green

    I view Winsor as a coat hanger for the uniform and nothing more. I’ve always respected the person, not the uniform and I have no respect for Winsor.

  20. Here’s another guy with a similar uniform fetish….


  21. Never fails to surprise me

    Would this not be like the head of IPCC turning up in a similar outfit? what a joke. Surely a civilian role regardless of it being Windsor or anyone else (though made considerably worse by this hand picked Tory plum)

  22. Apparently Ol’ Tom is planning to lay a wreath on behalf of the Police Service at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday. Sir Hugh Orde has suggested it should be done by a senior member of ACPO or a Chief Constable due to Tom’s lack of, er, experience as a Police officer.
    If anyone wants to let Tom know how they feel about his wearing that uniform or wreath laying on Nov 11, why not do so on haveyoursay@hmic.gsi.gov.uk? I’m sure he would appreciate honest comments from those he claims to respect and support.

  23. As a non copper I didn’t know that there was such a thing as a HMIC uniform. Presumably Winsor felt that he had to wear it because it was a formal occasion, and (I assume) it is his uniform of office – in the same way perhaps that a Lord Lieutenant has a pseudo military uniform, and wears it when he is wheeled out to greet the Queen on a visit (although many are ex military anyway, so at least they know how to salute).

    I can’t help thinking that it was ill advised. It is waaay too close to a police uniform for comfort for starters, and as a life long civilian he must surely have known that it would not sit well with those who have earned the right to wear their (very similar) uniform.

    He talks about showing respect, but he can show respect in many ways which do not include wearing a uniform which he would not wear as part of his normal duties. Particularly given that has never worn a uniform in the past. He should have understood that this would have been awkward at best, and just dressed in appropriate civilian attire – no matter what the rules or the uniform relating to his appointment might be.
