Storm Track Appeasement: Vet Barred From English Police For "England" Tattoo

Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.

When a nation no longer respects itself it lowers itself to this.

PATRIOTIC squaddie Craig Briggs has been barred from joining the police — because he’s got an ENGLAND tattoo on his arm.

The Iraq veteran, 22, had wanted to be a cop since childhood and was advised to join the Army to get experience first.

But when he applied he was told: “Unfortunately, some people feel intimidated by the word England.”

Last night Craig, who has just completed 4½ years with the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, said: “I am shocked and disgusted.

"I don’t understand how it can cause offence. It is our country, after all.”

Weasel Zippers comment: (Correction, it was your country).
