Here’s another step back in time. This is looking so dated. Back in 1979 when Rowan Atkinson and Griff Rhys Jones performed this sketch the police were a notoriously vindictive, violent and racist bunch. Thank god those days are behind us. Isn’t it ?
The SPG mentioned at the end were a particular nasty bunch of thugs who’s former members now advise the Met Police on how to control student protests.
I find it helps if I substitute the multi-accused man’s name, “Winston Kodogo” with “Julian Assange” – brings it right up to date. Constable Savage currently works for the Swedish Government.
