Policing a sprawling, multi-cultural city like London during a pandemic can be a tough and pretty exacting job at times.
Take last Saturday for example. Our team were deployed to Trafalgar Square where a bunch of anti-mask headbangers were staging a demo, defending their right to give their fellow human beings a killer disease by not wearing a face covering when popping into Greggs for a sausage roll.
These fruit loops were causing a major disturbance, harassing innocent members of the public and interfering with traffic flow, so we were deployed to break up the demo and restore order.
When we arrived on the scene, things immediately turned nasty and we started getting pelted with bottles and other missiles.
A decision was quickly made to steam in and feel a few collars, so the lads drew batons and started piling into these chumps a bit lively.
Fortunately, at this point I noticed that The Moon On The Mall boozer in Whitehall was open, so while the lads broke a few heads I dived in and spent the next three hours drinking heavily at the bar until I collapsed in the gents’ toilet in a pool of my own piss and sick.
