  • Complete with a PC Pleb t-shirt, ‘Boris Johnson’ attracted the world’s Press when he backed a campaign against 20 per cent cuts to police budgets outside the Tory Party Conference in Birmingham this morning. While the real London Mayor was preparing for his keynote speech to the Tory faithful, a look-alike Boris cycled past a huge billboard advert near the conference venue stating “Say hello to Dave, wave goodbye to your police service”.

  • The three Police Federation branches, representing thousands of rank and file officers across the region, are running a hard-hitting advertising campaign with billboard sites throughout Birmingham during the Conservative Party Conference which started yesterday. During the campaign, launched almost two weeks ago outside the constituency office of Andrew Mitchell MP, the Government chief whip embroiled in the Plebgate row, thousands of campaign leaflets will be handed out. The Federations have a meeting with Mr Mitchell this Friday but have been further angered by the Prime Minister’s assertion that the matter is closed. They are also disappointed that Mr Cameron has not responded after they invited him to meet them over a curry to discuss the Government’s 20 per cent cuts to policing.
