Thumbs down Police recruiting unfair

"Activity likely to interfere with the impartial discharge of duty

Special Constables should abstain from any activity which is likely to interfere with the impartial discharge of their duties or which is likely to give rise to the impression amongst members of the public that it may so interfere. In particular, special constables may not belong to the BNP, National Front or Combat 18 or any organisation whose constitution, aims, objectives or pronouncements are incompatible with the duty imposed by section 71 of the Race Relations Act 1976 on certain persons, in carrying out their functions, to have due regard to the need to:

a) eliminate unlawful racial discrimination; and

b) promote equality of opportunity and good relations between persons of different racial groups."


So it's fine to be a member of the far left but not far right? I think that the BNP and others mentioned above are racist and often ill informed like others but banning just one extreme seem unfair .

But left wingers are weedled out at the application stage. A close friend of mine was told in no uncertain terms back in the 80's that his membership of the Campaign For Nuclear Disarmamant (CND) would preclude him from reaching the final selection stage for a Foreign Office appointment. The right wingers would sail through that stage in the selection process I'm sure.
