(50) Freedom of Information requests

Remember these from earlier?

Blog (2)

Lastly, in 2015 in an attempt to help ‘legitimise’ one of our local hunt monitor groups, I came up with an idea to help them. I explained the problems with ‘police officer brains’ seeing ‘sabs’ with dark clothes, looking sinister, covering their faces. Essentially, hunt monitors were just the same as people involved in neighbourhood watch schemes, preventing and reporting criminal/unlawful/antisocial behaviour. I said, if it were me, I would wear a bright T shirt which explained clearly what I was doing. They agreed and thought this was a cool idea. They applied to the police to become a ‘watch’ scheme. Unfortunately their application was turned down by the chief constable, Anthony Bangham!!!! Why? Maybe this is explained later in this blog!!

If the NFU Mutual were in this ‘ground breaking partnership’, no wonder the local Hunt Monitors were told they couldn’t set up a Watch Scheme!

So…….Jane put in some Freedom of Information Requests to see what West Mercia Police would say about it!! What do you think?

And here are the responses!!

Again, I’ll leave that with you!!

  1. Like I said before, the Establishment is holding fast against this upstart bucking the system. Hold fast chaps and this nuisance will eventually go away, or get fed up, or get frightened off. Yes, we’ll just ignore him.Is he going to give up? Is he hell!!!
